Don’t Settle for Basic White Envelopes

Pre-designed invitations are convenient, affordable, and fast, making them popular for weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and parties of all sorts. However, they typically come with basic white envelopes which some people consider to be boring.

If you are looking for envelopes that are a bit more fun and fancy for your invites, let us help you upgrade! We offer hundreds of colorful envelopes, blank or printed, to suit your event and style.

In this post, learn how to choose an envelope replacement and get some creative ideas for upgrading your envelopes.

How to Choose the Right Size Envelope

First and foremost, you need a properly sized envelope! Measure the envelopes that came with your invitations to determine what size you need to replace them. You may also measure one invite and look for an envelope that is 1/4 inch larger than it.

Change up the Flap Shape

Should you not want a classic straight flap envelope, we offer other flap styles as well. Here we used a Euro flap dusty rose envelope to enhance the style of this floral watercolor invite. Using a colorful envelope also helped bring out the subtle colors in the design.

Add White Printing

White printing on dark envelopes is very modern. In this example we printed white on bright blue cyan envelopes to incorporate some bold color, but our customers really love white on traditional black, navy, and dark green too!

Add a Liner

Envelope liners not only add a layer of protection during mailing, they’re also pretty! An A7 ebony envelope is paired with a custom printed radiant white liner in this example.

We offer Euro flap liners for our A7 Euro flap envelopes and straight flap liners for our A2 and A7 straight flap envelopes. All of them can be ordered blank or printed with your supplied design.
