Gatefold Invitations

Gatefold invitations offer a classic, timeless appeal that you will love. In two different sizes, this invitation option folds out into three panels. The thick cardstock is scored perfectly so the gate doors meet just right at the middle. Choose shimmery metallics like silver or quartz or keep it traditional with colors like bright white or natural linen. Add an envelope liner to enhance the overall presentation of your wedding invitations for your recipients. You can also pair a modern contour or square flap envelope with these to complete the look.

Glitter Invitations and Envelopes

If you’re bringing some glitz to your wedding, your invitations and envelopes should reflect that! Our sparkle invitations are offered in rose gold, gold, and silver sparkle. Should your wedding be holiday themed, we also have holiday red sparkle. These beautiful invitations come in several paper sizes and matching envelopes. You can also opt for a regular envelope and incorporate a sparkling belly band that matches the invitation. This kind of glitter won’t get all over the place and are smooth to the touch. Your recipients will be able to read your custom printed invitations without glitter spilling.

Petal Invitations

For an uncommon, but striking wedding invitation option, petal invitations will be a hit with your guests. Four petals fold out, resembling a flower, with the middle of the invitation shaped like a square, where all of your event details can be. When folded back in, petal invitations have a very delicate appearance. In over 20 colors, you can find those that perfectly match your wedding’s scheme. From dark options like midnight black and navy, to brighter ones like magenta and seafoam, we offer great bases to create your DIY invitations.

Wood Grain Invitations and Envelopes

If your wedding is taking on a rustic theme, the wood grain invitations and envelopes are a great option. These are available in five color options—oak, white birch, teak, brasilia gray, and brasilia black. When paired with a non-textured invitation, the wood grain envelopes offer a beautiful contrast. You could also do the exact opposite with a textured invitation and regular envelope. Either pairing would create a striking presentation that will effectively characterize what your wedding’s theme will be like.

White Ink Printed Invitations

White ink printing is a perfect way to make your invitations stand out and pop against the paper color. If you’re considering darker paper for your invitations, white ink will look crisp and clean. It would also look gorgeous on our natural grocery bag material, which looks and feels just like you think. Incorporate this fresh and lively ink color into your invitations and, if possible, your envelopes to make them eye-catchingly beautiful.
