Pocket invitations are an increasingly popular wedding style, and for good reason - they're modern; they're stylish; they're versatile, and they offer an attractive way of organizing a wedding invitation ensemble. Invitation pockets with folds are all the rage, and given this growing trend, it comes as no surprise that one of the most common questions we get at LCI Paper is:
How do I make my own pocket wedding invitations?
There is no cut and dry answer to this commonly asked question - the answer is as broad as our customers' range of personal tastes and creative abilities. Where some folks prefer invitations that are simple in design and quick in assembly, some prefer custom, intricate detail - and don't forget the spectrum of folks between.
However, in order to assist all of our creative customers in making their own unique pocket invites - no matter where they fall on the spectrum - LCI offers materials, design inspiration, and detailed instructions for every step of the way. Whether you are looking for something as simple as quick tips or design ideas, or something as detailed as a step-by-step tutorial, LCI has your DIY needs covered.
If you are looking for a great selection of card-making supplies for your pockets, rest assured, you have come to the right place! For consistent invitation ensembles, choose from our extensive variety of matching pocket envelopes, specialty papers and decorative accessories.

At LCI Paper we understand that ordering online is not always easy and it is sometime best to see and feel the paper before ordering. Since we offer different sizes, textures and finishes, items such as invitation pockets can be especially confusing. For instance, what if you wanted a black pocket, however you were not certain about the size and color. LCI offers black pockets in 3 sizes and several brands and paper finishes, which is great, but how do you decide? To help with the selection process we put together an easy to use DIY-Pocket Invitation Sample Kit for order. And best of all it ships free!
Even though the pocket has a top flap, it is not considered an envelope. The sides are uncovered and exposed to potential damage from the high speed machinery at the Post Office.
