Whether you’re throwing a wedding or a party, custom invitations are a fun and unique way to get your guests excited about what’s to come. You can incorporate photos or a beautiful design to set the tone of your event, plus you can customize other details like size and trim to ensure it fits your theme and personality.

For a truly one-of-a-kind invite, try a technique like dip dye or die cutting. These techniques create a handcrafted look by dying the paper with a colored ink to leave a stripe of color or an ombre effect. It’s a great way to add texture and interest to your card while staying within your budget.

Another great option is to use a foil stamp, which is a metallic finish that adds a shimmer to your card and can be used on both flat and folded cards. It’s an easy way to make your invitations look a little more luxe and can be used on everything from the response cards to the envelope liners and return address stickers.

Digital printing (also known as flat printing) is a cost effective way to print your invitations and offers limitless possibilities for the design–this method is perfect for watercolors, photographs, detailed illustrations, typography and more!

Semi-custom suites are a great choice for couples who love the idea of a custom design but don’t want to spend a lot of time researching, ordering samples and tweaking their invites. You can still personalize your suite with a variety of embellishments to add that final touch of customization. Etemply
