Invite Game Strong
We are basically obsessed with everything Minted does with paper products so we wanted to take a minute and share some of our fave designs for 2020. First of all, are you a client of ours? If you are, oh hi we love you, and also remember to use our Minted discount code when you're ordering all of your gorgeous stuff. Need a reminder? No prob, Bob! Email us and we will hook you up.
First let's talk shop. Your invite should have some details on it but not everything. You can always include a link to your wedding website for more info or additional inserts to get everything across so don't go bonkers on the invite itself. We want your names (duh), the date, location and time and that's pretty much it. Keep it simple!
Play with texture! Maybe try keeping your text and coloring neutral but go all in on a heavier weight paper. Embossing your text can really elevate it as well. There's something so satisfying about pulling out a super thick invite and just feeling the weight of it. Or is it just me? Ha!
Neutral colors not your jam? Think about going with a watercolor marbling effect with color!
Wanting to go super different and still stick to clean and modern? Check out Minted's newest printing technique Gloss-Press. This is a pretty inexpensive way to add some glimmer to your invites. It gives off a really luxe and holographic vibe and we are here for itttttt.
Things that never go out of style? Gold Foil, swoopy (technical term) font and hand addressed envelopes.
Wanting to keep design and printing local? Check out our faves: Hey Halle, Letters and Dust, Crave Design and Anders Printing! We always love when people show local Portland vendors some love!
Don't over think here too much. Do you like it?
Does it fit your vibe? Then get it! Order some samples, get some quotes for building custom invites from a local company or two! Some people will tell you everything from Save the Dates and Thank You Notes to Table Numbers need to match and while that is super fun it can also cost a zillion dollars. Don't feel the pressure on paper products. There's enough pressure everywhere else! Shop and see what you like and go for it. If you love them then they are the right choice!
