When you have a once-in-a-lifetime event coming up, one that you want to share with as many friends and family as possible, there’s only one way to do it. Whether you’re celebrating your upcoming marriage or some other formal event, you need an invitation that matches the gravitas, elegance, and style of your planned event. Unfortunately, many people have no idea where to even start when it comes to invitation planning and invite packages.
There are so many questions. What do you include in a formal invitation? How do you even go about picking out one invitation package from a sea of possibilities? Do you select one that matches your theme, or alter your theme to reflect your favorite choice? Do you forego premade invite packages and have one custom made? Can you even afford that? If you’re asking yourself any of these questions, don’t worry: we have the answers for you. Read on!
Making the Choice for Custom Invitation Packages
There are a number of different types of invite packages from which you can choose. There’s a robust industry when it comes to premade packages, and you can visit any number of stationery stores or online marketplaces for premade packages that can be easily purchased and filled out. Many of these packages offer a do-it-yourself option by providing you with blank cardstock that you can then print your own text on from the comfort of your own home.
If you’re looking for invite packages that are even more in line with your style and personality, however, your best bet is to have them custom printed.
There’s plenty to recommend custom printed invite packages, especially if you have very precise needs and vision for your invitation. The time and energy you’ll save by not printing them yourself at home often justifies the slightly higher cost, especially while you’re trying to plan the rest of your event!
But the biggest advantage of choosing professionally printed invite packages is the options to go full-on extravagant. Your invitations can be one of a kind and make a lasting impression.
What Invite Packages Need to Include
Whether you choose a premade package, go with a do-it-yourself route, or rely on a custom printing job, there are a few things that invite packages need as standard. It’s not enough to just include a pretty card in a nice envelope, after all!
Your event invitation package should include more than just a card with the invitation itself, though this is, of course, important, as you need to inform your guests as to when and where the event is being held, the dress code, and anything else they need to know.
At the same time, it’s not like you’re sending an invitation to a kid’s birthday party. You have to cater to the needs of your guests by including a separate RSVP card that can be sent back to you with their response. Your card should also come with a stamped, self-addressed return envelope so as not to inconvenience your guest. Additionally, the invitation should include a separate card that provides directions to the venue of the event, such as a place of worship or reception hall for a wedding.
Another Word on Cost and Value
Now that you know what you should have in an invitation and the different types of invite packages that are generally available, it’s important to discuss cost and value a bit more.
It’s absolutely true that if you’re trying to conserve your resources, it’s often a more cost-effective solution to choose either a premade package or a DIY-centric one. There are some pretty steep downsides to these choices, though. You’ll have to put these packages together yourself, addressing and stamping each one in turn. That’s a huge time sink.
There are even more downsides, though, with premade packages. They only come in a few styles and you need to fill them out yourself, which, considering the cost of printer ink (and purchasing extra packages if you make a mistake) is rather considerable. This is why it’s always recommended to go to a custom print house to get our invite packages done.
Full-service printers don’t just offer full design, layout, and printing capabilities but also mail fulfillment as well, all for one affordable price.
