Black Vellum Invitation Design Ideas – Chic & Contemporary

Posted on by

There is perhaps no paper which creates more mystery than black vellum. Versatile and adaptable, it can be used in many ways. Most first think of black vellum as a contemporary veil of mystery for text and photos beneath it.

Here we showcase it in a black and white floral wedding invitation suite. Printed black or white, or used as a band, wrap, or overlay, black vellum is quite striking!
