1. Shine On with Glitter and Shimmer Paper

Glitter and shimmer papers are perfect for any event. Use them to dress up a rustic theme and show that although the party is taking place outdoors, the evening will be sophisticated. If you are throwing a glamorous party, use glitter to add a little drama and showcase just how elegant the night will be. Glitter suits every style from classic to vintage to casual, and everything in between. If full-on glitter just isn't your style, opt for a shimmer paper instead. Shimmer papers can give the same effect with just the right amount of sparkle and shine!

2. Add Some Texture with Luxury Papers, Folders & Pockets

An inexpensive way to add a luxurious feel to your invitations is by using a textured paper. These papers are different than the standard smooth stock used on most invitations, and they add an expensive feel to your suite without exorbitant costs. Linen or cotton papers are perfect for formal, vintage, or elegant events, while kraft paper instantly adds a rustic feel. We also offer wood grain pockets and folders to dress up any outdoor or rustic themed wedding invitation.

3. Print Using Non-Traditional Ink or Embossing

Stand out from the beginning, right from the mailbox! White is a great non-traditional option for addressing darker colored envelopes that will be unique and attention grabbing to your guests. You can also use white ink to print invitations on a dark-colored paper stock. Add some metallic silver, gold or even rose gold for a classic invitation with a twist! If you want your guests to feel as excited as you are about your big day, consider embossing for a tactile and interesting addition. No matter the design, these techniques can be used to personalize and enhance your invitation suite!
