We worked with Lesley at Papier Girl to help bring Hailey and Jake’s classic formal wedding invitation suite to life. Our Modernity suite was the starting point, updated to our signature F-8 size. A black details card with foil stamping is the perfect contrast to the invitation and reply cards. The vintage print floral liner and silk bow keep things feminine and timeless.

We offer many options for organizing your enclosure cards, to create a personalized invitation suite. It can be difficult to visualize the different options, so we’ve pulled them together here to make that easier!
Back pockets are adhered to the reverse of the invitation card, holding all the enclosure cards. We have both horizontal and vertical back pockets for our invitation sizes in our library. We can also create a custom pocket, for a fully custom look.
We offer belly bands in any of our text weight papers. These can be printed with a pattern or text or plain. They come to you scored with adhesive to help you assemble your invitation suite once they are ready for mailing. Typically belly bands are 1.75”, though we can also create a taller belly band if you’d prefer.
Gatefolds are a great way to add a pop of color to your invitation suite, while also adding a touch of drama. We can create a gatefold using any of our colored papers, including our metallic papers and vellum.
Another option is adding metallic thread to subtly tie your pieces together. It can either be simply wrapped around the invitation card, or used to tie on a tag.
Mounted Belly Bands
Mounted belly bands are adhered to the back of the invitation card, with a separate unprinted card. They keep all of your enclosure cards contained, while keeping the front of the invitation clean. They can be printed or unprinted.
Our Hadaway design features a mounted belly band printed with cheerful florals
Pocketfolds are mini folders that include a pocket for your enclosure cards. Typically your invitation would be mounted on the pocketfold. We offer both horizontal and vertical pocketfolds for (all of the) our invitation sizes in our library. We can also create a custom pocketfold, for a fully personalized look!
Pocket panels can hold your invitation and additional pieces all together, or we can adhere the invitation onto the front of the panel before shipping it to you. The Tannis suite features a printed pocketpanel, with the invitation mounted on the front.
Another way to add romance and drama is by adding a silk ribbon your suite, either tied in a traditional bow or knot, or mounted to the back of the invite card to create a mounted belly band.
Our 2012 Design Contest is in full swing, and today we’re excited to begin announcing our finalists! The lovely Amanda from Ruffled — one of our all-time favorite wedding blogs — was our judge for this year’s contest. If you’re looking for pretty wedding inspiration with a vintage touch, Ruffled is the place to go!
Amanda selected this modern customization of our Ribbon design from Judy Paulen Designs in Tenafly, New Jersey as the third place winner for our contest. Amanda said, “This invitation immediately has me daydreaming of a flowy wedding gown and a garden wedding. The scripted font is perfect for this style – whimsical and chic, just how this wedding would be.”
We think the added embellishments — bold edge painting, rounded corners and a statement pocketfold — definitely upped the wow-factor on this invitation set. The bride, Danielle, worked with Judy for her invitation suite, and she shared a snippet of Danielle’s vision with us: Danielle loved the sample in the Bella Figura album. She was looking for an unusual invitation that would intrigue and excite her international guest list, and the Ribbon design worked perfectly!
Congratulations to Judy Paulen Designs for placing third in our 2012 Design Contest! We’ll be announcing our second place winner tomorrow!

This design won third place in our Bella Figura design competition for 2012. This annual competition recognizes outstanding and inspired designs submitted to us by our beloved dealers.
We’ve spied a recent color trend centered on our gorgeous Mediterranean ink, showcased here on a Ribbon letterpress save the date. The color is cool and watery and plays nicely at weddings both formal and casual, modern and traditional. We just can’t get enough of these awesome save the dates!
A couple of months ago we featured Una and Eli’s letterpress wedding invitations and recently we had the pleasure of printing their letterpress thank you cards to match. Once again showcasing our Ribbon design, these pretty folded notes were printed in celadon and taupe inks to perfectly coordinate with their invitations, an easy and beautiful way to effortlessly coordinate the design details of your wedding.
This customization of our Ribbon letterpress wedding invitation design was printed in taupe and celadon inks and features a taupe envelope liner. One of our new designs for 2010, Ribbon was created for us by Erin Jang, an incredibly talented designer and art director. We love this sophisticated, earthy color palette for this couple’s fall wedding.
