The invitation gatefold card is pearlescent and has a gorgeous shine. The paper shimmers in the light, has a beautiful soft sparkle and is metallic on both sides.
Paper Finish: Paper is acid-free, recyclable and elemental chlorine free. The paper is manufactured with organic pigments and no metals or foils are used in the production process.
It is best to use the backing with an insert layer. The top flap has 1/8" holes pre-drilled to bind an insert with the card.
After folding the top flap down and the sides flap in, the gatefold card is 5" x 7". If ordering our papers custom cut to use as the insert layer, some options are have it cut as 4 1/2" x 6 3/4" to leave a 1/4" gap on each visible side (left, right & bottom) or 4 3/4" x 6 7/8" to leave a 1/8" gap on each visible side (left, right & bottom). For these dimensions, the top side of the insert layer would be flush to the scored fold line on the top. It is best to order samples or test with scratch paper to see which works best for your needs. Please note we do not have hole drilling services for the cut insert layer.
Please note that the gatefold cards are sent UNFOLDED. The flaps are scored for easy folding. Binding materials such as ribbon or eyelets are NOT supplied. Those would have to be purchased elsewhere.
When folded, the card will fit perfectly into the matching A7 Envelopes. Please see the Additional Pictures for exact measurements. Due to the shape , it is NOT compatible with most home printers. If you need printing directly on the card, please contact a local print shop.
