Our double-sided, Printed Gatefold Wedding Invitations offer plenty of space to add all the information you need to send out to your guests. You have the option of adding in additional cards too. You choose which information to put where and we can even change or tweak the design for you. They are fully customisable.
Optional matching tags, sleeves, stickers, and envelope liners give them another personal touch. We are careful to select only the best quality card so that we can create something for you and your guests to hold and cherish forever. We can create the rest of your stationery to match your chosen design or change these to match one of our other designs.
Cards are printed on both sides and then creased for folding. They will arrive flat in stacks ready for you to fold and tie or wrap with a sleeve. Tuck in any additional cards and pop them in the envelopes provided to post to your guests.
Read on for a full explanation of every aspect of these invitations and how to order.
CAN I MAKE CHANGES?
The answer is YES! The one question we are asked on a daily basis is “Can we change the text/font/layout etc?”. We fully customise everything so if you’d prefer to word your invitations differently from those pictured, just tell us when placing your order. Our photographs show just one example. Perhaps you’d prefer invitations for some other event? No problem, they are fully customisable. Need the colour or design tweaking? Just let us know when ordering. Like the style but would prefer a completely different design or have a design of your own? No problem, please either order our Custom Design or you can simply add a note to this one. If you’ve seen a product elsewhere on our website with a design you like, please just add a note to your order and we’ll create a sleeve invitation set to match.
CARD COLOUR: After lots of trial and error, we have selected 3 top quality card types for you to choose from. Smooth White 330gsm card is a lovely clean white colour and our most popular choice. Our Smooth Ivory 330gsm card is less bright and a good alternative if you’re not so keen on white. Finally, our Premium Cream 350gsm card is noticeably thicker and has a gorgeous, very light texture. It’s pale creamy colour is our favourite and really takes invitations to another level (sleeves would be on white or ivory paper).
DAY OR EVENING: Each variation (day, eve, different language, different timings etc) must be ordered separately and is subject to the minimum order quantity.
INVITE ONLY: This is the double-sided invitation card on its own and without any additional cards. Envelopes are included.
INVITE + 1 CARD: The double-sided invitation card plus one small additional card. You choose whether it is RSVP, Gift Message, Menu Options, or any other information or personal message. They are fully customisable! Don’t forget you can have printing on the back of additional cards too. Envelopes are included.
INVITE +2 CARDS: The double-sided invitation card plus two small additional cards. You choose whether they are RSVP, Gift Message, Menu Options, or any other information or personal message. They are fully customisable! Don’t forget you can have printing on the back of additional cards too. Envelopes are included.
All of the above are fully customised for you. You will receive a digital proof so that you can check that you are completely happy with everything and can make any amendments before we send them to print. We always recommend ordering a few extra invitations for those late additions to the guest list.
PERSONALISED GUEST NAMES
To keep things really neat and save time, you can opt to have us print the individual guest names on all your invitations. We must be able to copy and paste a list of names. The name(s) for each invitation must be typed on a separate line exactly as you would like them written and without any preceding numbers or symbols. Please request instructions from us if you are unsure.
NO THANKS – If you don’t need a sleeve or tag with your invitations, select this option.
TWINE ONLY – Lengths of twine long enough to wrap twice around your folded invitation and tie neatly.
TAG & TWINE – Personalised printed tag with a hole punched and lengths of twine. Tags come in a separate stack and the twine is cut ready for you to thread through the tag and tie to the folded invitations.
SLEEVE WITH BLANK STICKER - Personalised sleeves with round blank stickers to fix the sleeve together. Let us know whether you’d like a matt, gloss, or transparent sticker. If not specified, they will come with matt stickers as standard.
SLEEVE WITH MATCHING STICKER – Personalised sleeves with matching round personalised stickers. Let us know whether you’d like a matt, gloss, or transparent sticker. If not specified, they will come with matt stickers as standard.
PRINTING ON BACK OF ADDITIONAL CARD
If you have a lot of information, you can choose to have it printed onto the back of the invitation or one of your additional cards. This is great for an RSVP card with menu options on one side and RSVP information on the other.
ENVELOPE COLOUR: Kraft brown envelopes are included as standard. Other colours are available for a small surcharge. Just click on the colour you would like. We’ve searched for a long time to find the best quality envelopes at affordable prices and are really happy with what we now stock. If you do need a different colour, let us know and we’ll see what we can find.
ADDRESSED INVITATION ENVELOPES: To keep things neat and save time, you can have us print all your guests’ names & addresses onto the invitation envelopes for you. We will need a spreadsheet from you with the information for each envelope on a single row and each line on that envelope in a separate column. Please ask us for instructions and/or a blank template to fill in.
ENVELOPE LINER: We can create matching envelopes liners to fit into your invitation envelopes. We will create them to match the invitation design, but you can of course choose any other design to compliment your invites. Just let us know when ordering. You can have them loose so that you glue them in yourself, or you can opt for pre-assembled where we do that for you.
MATCHING STICKER TO SEAL YOUR ENVELOPE: A matching sticker for your envelopes gives a hint of what’s to come. Choose from matt heart stickers, or round matt, gloss, or transparent stickers. You choose what goes on the sticker. If you’d like to order extra stickers, you can order additional stickers here.
RSVP ENVELOPE: RSVP envelopes come in two sizes to match the additional small square or A7 cards. They cannot be personalised as they are too small to fit through our printers.
RSVP ENVELOPE COLOUR: Kraft brown is our standard range, or you can select one of the other colours for a small surcharge.
RSVP ENVELOPE LINER: We can create matching envelopes liners to fit into your RSVP envelopes. We will create them to match the invitation design, but you can of course choose any other design to compliment your invites. Just let us know when ordering. You can have them loose so that you glue them in yourself, or you can opt for pre-assembled where we do that for you.
