Whether you’re planning a lavish affair complete with gold foil, acrylic invitations or hand painted illustrations or a more simple wedding featuring classic paper cuts and sophisticated silk ribbons, your custom invites are a chance to share your unique style and set the tone for your big day. However, the truth is that while design can be top priority for some couples, your wedding invitations serve a crucial purpose: they need to communicate important details such as the date, time and location of your wedding along with an RSVP deadline.
If there’s more information than can fit on your main piece, consider adding an information card or insert containing everything from venue directions to a list of things to bring and even your preferred dress code. This allows you to give all the information you need without overwhelming your guests with a long email.
Digital printing is an incredibly flexible option when it comes to custom invitations. This method is best for achieving true, rich color and can be used to print detailed watercolors, photographs, typography and so much more.
If you’re planning to print your invitations at home, make sure to invest in a high-quality paper cutter and a new blade for clean, precise cuts. And consider taking your invitation bundles to a professional printer for assembly, finishing touches and that “wow” factor. Remember that any extra inserts and embellishments will also add to the overall weight of your package, which may require additional postage. Etemply
