Printed Paper Sample Pack (6 cards) US$6 + shipping

You'll receive in the mail six printed cards,

 measuring 5x7" (standard invitation size) to see the available papers we have to offer and a selection of our most popular wedding invitations (as shown below). 

Papers included:

 

1. Linen

2. Pearl

3. 100% Recycled

4. Felt

5. Art 

6. Cotton

 

As shown on the listing, no substitutions, sorry.
Card designs included are subject to change without prior notice due to availability.
Samples are generic and cannot be customized.

If you are interested to see any of our other cards, we can run an Individual Card Sample Set that will include 3 different cards from the same set or different sets.

 

$15.00  + shipping. 

 

If you order at least a total of 100 cards with us later on, the $15 will be credited back to you (please mention your sample purchase).

 

These sample orders are only coming on 5x7" paper, therefore the info card and the RSVP cards would be printed on the same size paper as the invitation with a light border where the actual size would go - 5.5 x 4".

 

 

 

PLEASE NOTE:

Different paper stocks produce different tones from exactly the same color of ink: the grade, grain surface, thickness and color of paper used will affect the color of the ink.

Example: you purchased the sample pack and decided to order the Rustic Mason Jar invitation on our Standard Linen paper. The sample is printed on Luxe Cotton. You will see a slight difference in color between the two cards although we used the same ink color.

Finishing Options

UV can be applied to some of your papers (Felt will remain matte) or to special Cover paper (will become shiny) to protect the paper against scratches, tears, and fingerprints and also enhance the brilliance of the ink colors. 

Recommended for direct mail postcards.

 

The coating is applied as a secondary step in the production process once printing is complete as a thin layer on the surface of the printed piece. This liquid is then cured through exposure to high-intensity UV light. 

During the process, the coating follows the contour of toners on the page some areas will have higher degree of shine.

The weight of the paper is a critical attribute of any high quality stationery and very important to the appropriate theme and tone you want associated with your event. We created this quick guide to paper weight basics. 

How is Paper Weight Defined? 

 

  • The U.S. system which denotes the weight in pounds (#)

  • The Metric system which indicates the weight in grams / meters squared (g/m²)

 

We exclusivelly use card stock, also called cover weight paper.

The higher the number you see in the description above, the heavier, and usually thicker, the paper.

POSTCARDS

All our papers meet the US and international requirements for postcards (thickness and size). 

Classic shiny postcard look is also available on our UV or Gloss coated paper

We also offer envelopes for RSVP and Save the date cards if you are concerned about damage occurring during shipping. 

The post office uses a massive printing machine to print barcode markings on all postcards, therefore we design our cards following regulations of the US and international postal services: a blank space at the bottom on the back of the postcards is left for these barcodes. This coding process, also the sorting and delivery might damage the cards.

Please note that we cannot be responsible for damage to items by the Post Office or their agents. 

 

Tipp: Ask the post office to hand cancel your stamps 

You can also your local postal office to stamp the postcards by hand rather than sending them through their machine-operated sorting system (which marks the envelope and postcards with thick lines in the top right corner and may damage the envelope and postcards in the process) ask them to “hand cancel” your postcards/invitations. This means that they’ll use a special ink stamp to mark your invitation and they’ll sort it by hand, reducing the risk of the damage. While some post offices refuse to do this, most are flexible.
