Sometimes it maybe easier for you to send us a swatch of the specific colourings you are looking for.

Yes, additional invitations can be ordered at a later date but may be more expensive than ordering extras upfront.
The best way to determine how many invitations you will need is to use a spreadsheet program like excel, pages etc... to manage your guest list.
List each household you need to send an invitation to on a separate line (row).
'Mr and Mrs Smith'
'The Peterson Family'
'Mr Brendan Geraldton'
'Mr Julius Parkes and Ms Emelia Johnson'
If you have done this correctly, the number of lines on your spreadsheet will equal the number of invitations you will need.
Some extra points:
1- You DON'T need as many invitations as you have guests. Couples / Families only need 1x invitation.
2- Don't forget to add spares (10-15 extra invitations) to cover any late guest list additions. Ordering extras later will cost you a lot more.
3- Make sure you add yourself, your parents and your grandparents as these are usually the most left out invitations.
As an example, you may have 100 guests on your list but only 70 rows. You will need an absolute minimum of 80 invitations (including spares).
Your RSVP date should be 4-6 weeks prior to your wedding day, allowing you time to chase guests who have not rsvp'd by the deadline date and organise place cards/on the day stationery.
