Do you know what the font size is? Are all the letters in capital letters or are they the regular title case with upper and lower case letters where they should be? Can you upload an image so we can see? Where did you get them from?

Unless it specifically stated in the description of the invite you were purchasing, or the designer you were going through provided the information, then I would see if a rush order could be placed for them to be remade. Typically nothing should be under 12pt font—maybe 11pt—because after that it’s too hard to read.

If you can’t upload an image, can you provide the website with a link to the ones you bought?

First thing I would do is call the printer and find out what they can do and how fast they can do it. And what costs are involved in a rush order.

Depending on the font used, even 12 pt can sometimes look too small (if that is, indeed, what was used).  I think getting a FAST reprint depends on what kind of company you worked with — regardless, I’d make a phonecall to express your unhappiness. If these were professionally designed, any designer should be held responsible for their work being readable.  One of my first rules of invitation design is always to PRINT my designs when still in the proofing stage to see how the type looks…. on-screen and in-person are VERY different things!

Did you send save-the-dates?  If so, you have another few weeks to send your invites out and still have plenty of time to get all the details to your guests.

Do you mind if I ask where you got your invites printed?

I had the same thing happen to me (on one of my invitaiton inserts AND on the programs), and it was very frustrating.  In the end, I decided to not make a beef about it (I had a frinedor design them and I printed them myself)

I didn’t hear any complaints about it, and I’m so glad I didn’t go through the stress of trying to reprint (because the cost of the paper and printing was on me) 

If you can, maybe try a reprint, but more than likely others will be able to read it and not think it’s a big deal at all.  Ask for opinions of people close to you and the wedding and they’ll be honest.  Sometimes it’s not a disaster–it’s just not what you were looking for.
