Packaging matters

I’m a big fan of all things self-contained. I like seal-and-send invitations because there aren’t a lot of pesky little cards and things that can get lost in, say, a messy desk. Second on my invitation faves list are self mailers, where the envelope itself makes up a vital part of the invitation design and color scheme.

The four shown above, which can be found at Now & Forever (a detail that matters very little, as most online invitation print shops carry the exact same stationary with minor variations in price, just so ya know), feature built-in pockets for your maps, reception cards, or anything else you might want to include.

    these can be very nice cards for wedding invitations..many times the guests just dispose them after the effort put in by the wedding couple…can be a waste too..but this doesn’t stop us from planning to the best we can.

    Tell me about it, Jhong Ren. I always feel a little guilty recycling the invitations I’ve received for friends’ weddings. But if I were to save them all, my drawers would be overflowing!
