Making metallics work for your wedding invitations

It’s not just metallic gold that’s making a big appearance in wedding invitations this year — all different shades of shine are showing up and we couldn’t be more exited! Metallics instantly bump up the wow factor of any invitation while creating an elegant and glamorous appearance. There are lots of ways to incorporate metallics into your wedding suite: you can go all out with foil stamping and foil edging on your pieces, or pair them with a metallic envelope liner and a metallic envelope to really make heads turn! Not feeling that much dazzle? You can mix in small details of shimmer just by adding foil edging or a metallic envelope liner.

If you couldn’t already tell by all the foil in our new 2012 wedding invitations, we’re obsessed with foil stamping as a way to add some sparkle to your wedding invitations! We offer a wide variety of illuminating foil options, from vintage and formal golds, silvers and copper, to edgy and eye catching forest green, red or indigo. You can combine any letterpress ink with foil stamping in a single design; print your invitation in bold beautiful colored foils (fuchsia! purple! teal!); or go two tone, mixing a gold matte foil with a gold shine foil for a truly wowing look.

Foil edging adds an awe-inspiring, smooth, shiny surface to the edges of important pieces in your wedding suite. It works wonderfully as a complement to a wedding suite full of foil stamping or to add an unexpected pop of color to your letterpress invitations: think fuchsia, blue, green, or copper!

Our metallic pocketfolds come in 5 sparkling shades that pair perfectly with any of our wedding invitations to create a memorable enclosure your guest will be sure to keep forever! On the exterior of your pocketfold, we can even letterpress print your names, date, monogram, a design element from your invitation or anything else you can dream up to completely customize your wedding suite!

Our metallic envelope liners and metallic envelopes are shimmery, pretty, and FSC-certified—they’ll create the perfect balance of shine and sophistication for your unique wedding invitations!

No matter what dose of metallics you choose for your invitations, it’s sure to make a statement!  Still not sure what metallic combination will best capture the style of your wedding? We offer free design consultations after you place your order, where you’ll have a chance to talk one on one with our designers about all of your invitation choices (or if you need help now, just ask!).
