How to make my invitation stand out?

February 21, 2017

We often get this question on how to make an invitation stand out.  There are some simple ways to achieve this without spending outrageous money.  Here are some tips.

 

Layering 

Layer multi sheets of card stock in different colours. This will not only give you thickness (weight ) with your invite but it will also give you beautiful multicolour edges.

 

Font

There are so many great looking fonts out there that can bring your stationery project to life. Mix and match style of font on your design .  We love creating the names in a script font and the rest in a blocked style font.  Try mixing and matching upper and lowercase font.

 

Colour

Go bold! Stay away from creams and whites and try eggplant card stock with a silver envelope with a matching liner. Mix your colours!

 

Size

There are so many sizes to choose from....why not choose a size that is not the norm like a A9.  You may need to check with the post office for an accurate postage stamp.

 

Printing

There are many different techniques that your invitation can be printed.  Best to speak to your printer about your the costs.  Most popular is foiling which gives your font a shimmery look and shine, then there is embossing  and flat printing.

 

Belly Bands

Belly band is a decorative band or ribbon that matches your invitation style and it is wrapped around the entire invitation suite to keep everything together.

 

Speak to your stationery designer for options that may be most suitable for your budget.
