The invitation pocket 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.
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 5" x 7" after folding.
Please note that this paper is printed on one-sided only. The blank side will be Silver Metallic.
Paper Finish: Paper is acid-free, recyclable and elemental chlorine free. No metals or foils are used in the production process.
The Metallic Siver is paired with a Dark Silver ink for an elegant look. It has free flowing swirls with a few leaves giving it a vine-like look. This is a simple Swirl pattern that's not to busy, yet gives your paper a unique look. The Himalaya Pocket Folds have the design on the outside, and the bottom of the pocket flap on the inside.
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 (5" x 7") is called the Base. We would recommend having the Base for this flap cut to 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" and center on the flap. 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.
Please note a 5" x 7" card would be too large to use as a base card.

- 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 4 1/2" x 7", but due to construction of the pocket, the maximum width that can be placed inside the pocket is 4 1/4".
The paper to be placed inside the pocket is called the Pocket Insert.. We would recommend having the Pocket Inserts cut to 4 1/4" wide and 6 3/4" 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. The A-2 size will not fit inside the pocket.
When assembled, the card will fit perfectly into an A7 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.
