We love color and know how important it is to have your stationery match the colors of your event. These colors mimic the card stocks that we offer. Don’t see the color you are looking for? No problem! We do the majority of our printing digitally which allows us to print in almost any color under the sun. A tip to remember, when choosing a color for your names or other text, it is best to print in a medium to dark shade so that the information is clearly legible. Black is the best color for the small type that includes the dates, time, addresses, etc. For specialty print colors, Contact us for more information.
We have a variety of styles for you to choose from. Every design can be made to include any of the enclosures shown here. 6x6 Square Enclosures are available in all 4 styles shown. Something to consider when ordering a square shape, postage will increase by at least $0.20 when mailing due to the square shape. There will be a $25 layout change to transform any design into a square shape.
Mix and match fonts from 4 typographic styles: Serif, Script, Sans Serif and Stylized. Use the fonts that are featured in each design, or take it a step further by choosing from over 300 typefaces. There are some designs where fonts cannot be substituted. For other designs, a $25 font substitution fee may apply. We will inform you of any fees when ordering.
Artsy Occasions offers an exciting way to customize your special event. Our award winning designer has put together stunning, playful, elegant and whimsical ensembles for you to choose and personalize. Create your very own custom invitation in just three simple steps.
STEP 1: SELECT YOUR DESIGN
Designed with many styles and personalities in mind, choose your Invitation from our refined selection. Found more than one design you love, or looking for a particular theme? No problem! For a small fee of $25, you can mix and match elements from multiple designs (fonts, vector art, wording and small layout changes). Inquire for custom design orders. Next, determine the items you will need: guest address printing, insert cards (Response Card and Envelope, Information Card and Outer Envelope make up the Basic Wedding Ensemble that is pictured in most wedding designs), etc. Each piece will be printed on your choice of premium card stock with matching envelope: smooth white, smooth ecru, metallic white or metallic ecru. Cardstock upgrades and envelope upgrades are available, see the Pricing page for more information. *For Photo Cards, see below.
STEP 2: CHOOSE YOUR COLORS
Every Invitation is customizable by color to match your color scheme. Artsy Occasions offers over 50 colors and patterns to uniquely express yourself. See our Personalize page for a list of color swatches to find your perfect combo. Monitor calibrations vary. Request a swatch card,
STEP 3: CREATE DIMENSION WITH ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS
The Invitation Panels are pre-sized to accommodate an additional layer and/or enclosure while still fitting into the Outer Envelope. Some prefer simplicity while others want to that wow factor. If your information is straightforward and your wedding and reception are at the same location, you might opt for one of our simpler formats, like a Flat Card. If you have multiple inserts of information to include beyond the Response Set, (like where to stay, directions or weekend itineraries) one of our many Pocket enclosures might be the way to present your information in a gorgeously organized package. You may also want to add some pizazz by including an embellishment (like a Layered Seal, Band Wrap, Ribbon, Lace or an Envelope Liner). See our Personalize page for a list of enclosures. Assembly fees may apply.
Photo Cards come standard in a matte or glossy finish with white envelopes. Both sides are printed and sizes include 4x5.5, 5x5, 5x7 and 4x8. Texture upgrades are available in a linen, felt or pearlized texture. Envelope upgrades and die cut shapes are also available, See our Personalize page for a list of die cut shapes. Photo Cards are printed in a professional photography lab using the highest quality printers on the market. Photo Cards must be ordered in sets of 25. A copyright release is required for use with a professional photograph. Maximum file size is required (no less than 300 dpi). Turn around time for ordering is 5-7 business days.
