Create one-of-a-kind invitations for weddings, baby showers and more. Whether you’re dreaming of floral and watercolor or modern and sleek, we have designs that perfectly fit your style.
Digital printing is an incredibly flexible method, ideal for watercolors, photographs and detailed illustrations. It also prints in full color on both sides and offers a choice of three invitation card sizes.
Whether it’s for a wedding, birthday or holiday party, well-designed and creatively-printed invitations set the tone for your event. They create excitement, intrigue and can even decide if someone will confirm their attendance.
Custom stationery allows you to work one on one with a designer to design 100% original art, based off of your ideas and vision for your special day. This is a large jump from semi-custom invitations as it is more involved with the overall process and costs more to design.
Foil stamping and embossing are printing techniques that can add a touch of luxury to your invitation suite. They are great for adding a pop of color, creating a texture or evoking a specific theme. A wax seal is another option for a more elegant and refined look. A personalized seal can include a date, time or venue of the event and can be used on response cards, reply envelopes or as a gift tag.
The paper used for your invitation sets the tone of your wedding or baby shower. From the enchanting shimmer of pearlescent to the ancient texture of parchment, there are countless options to choose from that align with your event theme.
Standard cardstock is a smooth, matte finish and comes in a variety of weights. A common choice is 80# cover, which works well for most home printers and fits in most envelopes with ease.
Other popular options include kraft and wood-grain papers, which convey a rustic DIY vibe. Parchment and vellum have a more formal feel and add depth to your suite.
Another option is thermography, which produces prints you can feel. Text or graphics are indented into thick (board) paper with a metal plate, and can have color ink or remain white for a clean look. Felt is a unique option that has a texture somewhere between cotton and canvas–smooth, but coarse. It’s also available in a light weight so it layers beautifully with other materials.
Aside from printing colors & patterns, there are many other fun techniques to add design to your invitations. One example is blind debossing which leaves a delicate impression of palm leaves that you can feel and see (but no ink). Thermography looks similar to engraving and has a very formal look, but it’s less expensive. It’s a good option if you want to add border motifs or design extras and works best on thicker paper stocks like cotton fiber.
Foil stamping sits nicely on any of the printing methods we talked about, but especially well on digitally printed invites. It’s achieved by heating up a piece of foil & stamping it onto the paper leaving a shiny metallic design behind.
You can also die cut your invitations into any shape imaginable, though this will cost you some dough. Laser cutting is another technique that cuts away paper rather than printing on it, and it can have a very delicate and elegant look.
Envelopes are a finishing touch that can make or break your invitation suite. We have an extensive collection of envelopes in top trend shades and sizes. You can choose from modern Euro flaps, traditional double wedding envelopes, and a variety of style edges (organic, perfect circle, raw edge).
It’s important to include all of the information about your event in your invitation. This includes the time, date, location, and what you are celebrating. It’s also a good idea to incorporate the RSVP address on your envelopes, so guests know how to respond.
