Stylish wedding invitations with metallic papers

What to consider when choosing a wedding invitation design for metallics

Metallic papers are a great way to make your wedding invitations shine. However, you will need to ensure you match the paper with the right design to ensure a beautiful, completed invitation.

Avoid too many colours and photos in your invitation – these can clash with the metallic nature of the paper and appear dull and cluttered rather than striking and prestigious. By sticking to strong, simple designs you will get the best results. The design on the right, from our selection of wedding invitations, will work well on a metallic stock:

Things to know before printing your invitation

Sourcing metallic papers shouldn’t take too much time and effort, you may find some at your local stationery store or there are many on online paper merchants. Our advice is to shop around and you should be able to find a bargain for a good quality paper.

Next you will need to check that your home printer is up to printing onto metallic papers as they are more textured than standard copier paper, but in most instances you should be fine. If your printer can handle thicker card stock this would further enhance the look of the invitation.

If you have created your wedding invite on you will be able to download your customised invitation in a pdf format that is laid up and ready to print, and you will get two invitations per sheet. Just make sure you select “Landscape” as your printing option.

An alternative to printing it at home, is to take the digital file to your local printer and have them print it for you (just make sure you get a proof of the final product on the metallic stock you have chosen, to ensure it is just right before they print all the invites).

Print and enjoy.
