1. You print it
Printing at home is the perfect option for the budget-conscious bride or for some quick DIY. See below for print-your-own tips.
2. We print it - digital (standard) printing
Don’t have time to fuss about with printing? Let us take care of it. Your invites will be digitally printed to the highest standards on your choice of card. We currently offer white and cream card in matt (lightly textured) or shimmer/metallic. Printed samples available on request for $10. We are unable to print custom samples so a variety pack will be sent to you which will showcase our favourite designs (let us know if you have a favourite though and we will see what we can do).
A beautiful & luxurious form of printing, letterpress is a traditional and time-honoured printing method which leaves a tactile ‘deboss’ to the printed design.
4. Metallic foiling
Add some shine with silver, gold, copper, or rose gold foiling. This not only looks great on white card, but also on black and coloured cards! Email to request samples.
5. White ink printing
White ink can be printed onto kraft (rustic brown) or other coloured cards, it gives a unique look if you are after something a little different.

Print your own tips
Make sure your printer can handle heavy weights of invitation card by doing some test printing. If your paper needs to do a loop-de-loop inside your machine, chances are heavy paper wont bend it’s way through there. If the paper feeds from front to back, you may be able to print on up to 250-300gsm card. Buy a couple of sheets of card for test printing before you purchase a whole packet.
Alternatively your local print shop (for example: Kwik Kopy, Snap Printing, Officeworks, etc) can print for you. You can usually supply your own card up to 270-300gsm in weight or they may offer their own speciality paper ranges for you to choose from. Officeworks only allow papers purchased in-store.
Most of our invites are designed to fit two-up on an A4 sheet, so you’ll get two invites on each A4 sheet you have printed. Also ask your print shop about cutting all your invites with a guilottine. Saves you trimming the designs from the A4 sheets.
