The Invitations

Hi all! How exciting, our first blog post! (eek!) I want to take a deeper look at The Invitation, and for planning purposes, the additional pieces that can be sent with The Invitation to your guests!

So, the invitation card (5"x7") is the first glimpse your guests will have to your vision for your special day.  With all of our orders, the accompanying mailing envelope includes free return address printing on the back flap!

Next, the details card (4.5"x6.5") is the perfect companion to your invitation, used to share any of the important details about your wedding with your guests.

Lastly, the response card (4.25"x5.5") and envelope is a key player in your invitation suite. This is where you can gather information about who is planning to attend, and if desired, you can ask for meal choices and inquire about food allergies. Again, with all of our orders, the accompanying mailing envelope includes free return address printing on the front!

FYI — all cards are printed on our luxurious 130# card stock and include standard Classic Print (full-color ink). You can choose to add some dimension to your cards when you upgrade your print technique to include our soft elegance finish, soft elegance + raised gloss or soft elegance + raised foil! Learn more about our exclusive Print Techniques.


We wish to provide you with beautiful print and personal service.  So we field lots of questions about the actual PROCESS of order invitations — how to decide on a design, when to order, when to mail, etc.

Here are the most commonly-asked inquiries and our responses — we hope this helps you in planning your wedding! Please contact us if you have a question we didn't address below — we would be honored to be of service to you!
