FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are speciality rentals?
Speciality rentals are geared towards clients who want to break from the normal and design an event that is as unique as they are! We search all over the world for vintage and modern design-forward pieces to raise the bar in event styling. We are not interested in doing what has been done before; but rather, something fresh and memorable.
What is the best way to determine if a rental company and their products are a good fit if you're unable to meet with them in person?
When choosing the right rental company for your event needs, ask yourself if the brand’s aesthetic matches your vision. Check their social profiles and browse their website. Do their galleries evoke inspiration for your event? If so, you’ve found a match!
Where can I locate your rental prices?
Rental prices are not posted online because they vary based on location delivered to. Please reach out to us directly to address your pricing questions and we will give you a custom quote for your event.
How much more are speciality rental items than standard?
Speciality rentals are geared towards clients who want to break from the normal and design an event that is as unique as they are! We search all over the world for modern and vintage design-forward pieces to raise the bar in event styling. We are not interested in doing what has been done before; but rather, something fresh and memorable. With that said, you can expect to pay anywhere from 5 – 40 % more for speciality rentals. The cost is a reflection of the materials of that particular good.
I'm an Archive fan and want to play around with options. Now what?
There are a number of different options to start the proposal process. You can easily fill out a Wishlist through the website, request a quote through the contact form on the website, or just give us a call at 888-459-6598 to be connected to a Designer. We always love hosting guests in our showroom as well; please schedule an appointment Monday – Friday.
Can I come to your warehouse to look around?
Yes, we love visitors! Our San Clemente showroom and Playa Del Carmen warehouse are open Monday – Friday, but we do ask that you please call ahead for an appointment. We want to make sure someone is on-hand to show you around and answer any questions you might have.
Can I see a mock of my decor selections pre event?
Of course! We ask that you provide us with at least a weeks notice to prepare our showroom with your order selections. Please inquire with your Archive Designer for an appointment.
How far do you deliver?
Our San Clemente warehouse delivers anywhere in California and our Playa Del Carmen team delivers within the Riviera Maya. Check out more cities we service here.
Do you have a minimum order requirement?
For orders requiring delivery the minimum for Southern California is $1,000, Northern California is $4,000 and for Riviera Maya is $350. We hope we can host you in one of our warehouses to show you how we can easily help you meet the minimum with our wide variety of rentals. Orders of lesser amount are accepted and might qualify for Will Call.
How do I reserve my order?
To reserve your dream rentals, we require a signed contract, Terms and Conditions, Credit Card Authorization and a 50% non-refundable deposit. Since our rentals are first come first serve, we promise to work quickly with you on creating a quote you feel comfortable booking. Afterwards we can of course still make minor adjustments and additions to the quote depending on availability.
Can I pick up a will call order from your warehouse?
We welcome Will Call orders Monday – Thursday 10 AM – 3 PM and Friday 10 AM – 2 PM. Note, orders under $1,000 can only be placed within 30 days of your event.

Our Award-Winning Design Team love attending to ensure each touch is set up properly, allowing you to enjoy what matters most, your event!
Oops I broke it. Now what?
Accidents happen. We require a credit card for lost or damaged items that will be charged for repair or replacement of the item.
Do you offer a week day discount rate?
Rentals booked Monday – Thursday will receive a weekday discount. Please inquire with your Designer for more information.
Shoot, I don't see what I'm looking for.
We thrive off the hunt. If you’re looking for something we don’t have, but would love to rent… let us know anyways! Many items in our inventory are waiting to get their headshots taken for the website, so there’s a chance we might have what you need.
Will you sponsor my event?
Often times we will. We have set aside a fixed budget to participate in sponsorships. However, we do ask that hard costs are paid in full. If you think Archive would be a good fit to sponsor your cause, please contact us and let us know about the event. We’ll do our best to accommodate your sponsorship needs.
