The card enclosure is a smooth, high quality cardstock.
This design has a horizontal pocket on the right flap of the card and a flap on the left to fold over the card. The card is 6 1/4" x 6 1/4" after folding.
Paper Finish: Acid free for archival purposes.
The center flap can be used to display the main body of the invitation (event, participants, dates, location, etc...)
The paper to be placed on the center flap (6 1/4" x 6 1/4") is called the Base. We would recommend having the Base for this flap cut to 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and center on the flap. This will leave a 3/8" gap on each side and allow you to get 2 cuts from a single 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. 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.

- Adhesives (Lines or Squares will work well)
Right Pocket Flap:
The pocket can be used to display additional event details, maps, directions, rsvp cards, reception cards, hotel & registry information, etc... The flap is 5 1/4" x 6 1/4", but due to construction of the pocket, the maximum width that can be placed inside the pocket is 5".
The paper to be placed inside the pocket is called the Pocket Insert.. We would recommend having the Pocket Inserts cut to 5" wide and 5 7/8" tall for a nice fit. The Pocket Inserts can then be trimmed to achieve a layered look. 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 Pocket Inserts in Bright White Solid Cardstock or you may order paper uncut and have it cut locally.

Envelopes: If you are including an envelope inside the pocket, we would recommend using a 4 Bar size envelope or A-2 size envelope.
When assembled, the card will fit perfectly into a 6 1/2 envelope, most pockets have a matching envelope. If desired, the Pocket Card can be kept closed with Seals (not included).
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.
