Our double-sided, Printed Gatefold Wedding Invitations offer plenty of space to add all the information you need to send out to your guests. With your choice of gold, silver, rose gold, or copper foiling printed onto your choice of quality white or cream card. Irresistibly eye catching! Even the simplest design will dazzle with this extra-special gilded finish. Choose which bits of your card(s) are foiled. Go for a subtle touch or all-out bling! Envelopes are included with every invitation. 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 Foil Tags, Foil 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 edit any of our other stationery to match your chosen design too.
CAN I MAKE CHANGES?
The short answer is YES! We fully customise everything so if you’d prefer to word your invitations differently from those pictured, just tell us when placing your order. Perhaps you’d prefer invitations for some other event? No problem, they are fully customisable. Want all or only part of the text foiling? Need the colour or design tweaking? Just let us know when ordering. Our photos show just one possible variation. Like the invitation style but would prefer a completely different design or have a design of your own? No problem, please contact us with your design and we’ll be able to advise you!
Your invitation is the double-sided, printed gatefold invitation card on its own, without any additional cards. It is printed front and back. Foiling is included on both sides. They are creased for folding and will arrive flat in stacks ready for you to fold. Tuck in any additional cards and pop them in the envelopes provided to post to your guests. Please read on for a full description.
Card used for foiling has changed over the past year as manufacturers worldwide have struggled with supply. All card used for foiling must be exceptionally smooth and the slightest change in the manufacturing process means some card types are no longer suitable for foiling. We have updated our stock for 2022 to only include the best card types available:
White Satimat – A smooth 350gsm card in a warm white colour. It may differ slightly in shade from previous samples.
Cream Conqueror – A smooth 320gsm card in a warm pale cream colour.
Brilliant White – A new 400gsm card, which is a brighter, cleaner white colour.
Manufacturers make minor changes to their card stock all the time without prior notice so there can be slight shade variations from the samples as they may have been printed on older stock.
We offer Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, and Copper foiling. We have swatches of all 4 colours available so if you’d like to see a sample, please order a Generic Sample of any foiling product. We do not yet have samples of all foiling products available. Please add a note if you’d like us to include additional foil colour swatches.
DAY OR EVENING: Each variation (day, eve, different language, different timings etc) must be ordered separately and is subject to the minimum order quantity. Use the Other option if you need something to be different on one set of invitations.
ADDITIONAL SMALL CARD: If you’d like to add a separate smaller card to go with your invitation, this is the option for you. The smaller square card can be single or double-sided and with or without foiling. It is fully customised for you so you can choose what you’d like your additional card to be (RSVP/Menu/Info/Gift Msg etc). If you’d like more than one additional card, please get in touch. We do not recommend having small text such as menu options, foiled. Foil writing is always harder to read due to its shine.
SLEEVES WITH FOILING are available separately. Please add them to your basket along with your foil invitations in order to get the best price. Only available on a cream paper to match the cream card.
TAGS WITH FOILING are available separately. Please add them to your basket along with your foil invitations in order to get the best price. Available on both white and cream card.
TWINE – Twine is cut into lengths ready for you to wrap twice around your invitation and tie in a bow.
Proofs: 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 the design and can make any amendments before we send them to print. Please be aware that foil writing is always harder to read due to its shine. We are happy to put any information you like on the cards but do not take responsibility for them being hard to read. The more text that is added, the smaller the text. Please ensure you check proofs carefully to ensure nothing has been missed, even if it was requested in an earlier email. All proofs are FINAL! We always recommend asking family or friends to check them too.
ENVELOPE COLOUR: Kraft brown envelopes are included as standard. Other colours are also available. 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: We all know how time consuming it can be to sit and hand write addresses on envelopes so if you’d prefer us to do that for you then this is the option for you. We will need a spreadsheet or table from you. The information for each envelope must be on one line with each line of text for that envelope in a separate column. Please just ask us for detailed instructions and/or a blank template to fill in if you’re unsure.
ENVELOPE LINER: Envelope liners are on a bright white paper. They come either Loose where they are pre-cut & creased, ready for you to stick in yourself, or fully assembled where we do the fiddly work and stick each one in for you. We create them to match your chosen design but if you’d prefer a different design to compliment your invitations, just add a note to your order. Browse our other envelope liners for ideas. Please note that the paper is closest in colour to the Bright White invitations and will not match the shade of White Satimat invitations as a different paper is used. Ivory paper is also available on request. They are sized to fit all our v-flap envelopes and are not available for our Premium White peel & seal envelopes. Envelope liners are NOT foiled.
MATCHING STICKER TO SEAL YOUR ENVELOPE: A matching sticker (without foiling) 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, you can order extra stickers here.
RSVP envelopes are sized to fit the additional small square 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.
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. Please refer to the information for invitation envelope liners above for details of colour.
This is where you can write any notes about your order. If you feel it’s too much to put all the information in here, feel free to email it to us afterwards at your convenience.

We always recommend ordering a few extra invitations for those late additions to the guest list as we cannot produce fewer than 30 reprints. Remember you only need one invitation per couple/family, not per person!
