This is a great card stock to use for invitations and announcements. Pair it with a vellum overlay for the perfect handmade invitation. One side is smooth, for printing, the other side has a grainy surface. The feel of the paper is similar to a grocery bag.
Here is an idea of the different sizes that can fit inside the Pocket. Please note that this is a recommendation of a full design. You can modify as desired.
The envelopes and insert cards are not included and are sold separately.
The center flap can be used to display the main body of the invitation (event, participants, dates, location, etc...)
Invitation Cards & Inserts
Precut blank cards & inserts are available to place inside the pocket card. Please check your printer for size compatibility.
Right Pocket Flap
The pocket can be used to display additional event details, maps, directions, rsvp cards, reception cards, hotel & registry information, etc... The maximum width that can be placed inside the pocket is 5".
If you are including an envelope inside the pocket, we would recommend using a A1 Square Flap or A1 Euro Flap size envelope.
When assembled, the card will fit perfectly into an 6 1/2 Square Flap Envelope. Most pockets have a matching envelope in the same color.
Due to the style of the card, it is NOT compatible with most home printers. It is best to print on an insert and adhere to the middle flap or place inside the pocket on the right side. If you need printing directly on the card, please contact a local print shop.
You can order any of our papers and use our Custom Cutting service to have the paper trimmed to the size you need. We also have Pre-Cut Base Cards in Bright White Solid or you may order paper uncut and have it cut locally. You can use our Adhesives or any adhesives intended for photo mounting to adhere the Base on the middle flap.
