What paper is available?

Paper is determined by the style of your invitation.
A paper that works great for a damask patterned design
may not be the best choice for a heavy solid color or thermography.
We do however, carry white glossĀ and white or natural ivory matte,
linen and pearlized. Other colors and textures may be available
depending on the style of invitation you select.

 

Single or double envelopes?

Formal invitations are traditionally sent in two envelopes.
The inner envelope is not gummed and is addressed, less formally,
to the person(s) within the household invited to your event.
Modern and casual invitations do not need two envelopes and
most people are opting for one.

My curiosity about the purpose of two envelopes
led me to an article that stated that long ago,
when mail was delivered by horse, the outer envelope
would become splattered with mud. When the mail arrived
to its destination the soiled outer envelope
was disposed of leaving the presentable inner envelope.
Makes sense to me.

 

Addressing the envelope?

It is considered proper to hand write the address
and have the return address printed on the flap.
We use the same font as used on the invitation and,
if desired, add design elements from the invitation on the envelope.
Should you choose not to follow tradition,
supply us with anĀ spread sheet of your guests and their addresses
and we’ll print them on your envelopes.

 

How many invitations should I order?

We recommend that you order 20 more invitations than you think you will need.

 

Can you print my photographs?

If you are looking for a custom size of photo
we would be happy to print them for you.
Otherwise, a photo lab is less expensive option.
Costco comes highly recommended by many of the brides
and photographers that we have worked with.
