Invitation Design Elements: Enclosure Options
We offer many options for organizing your enclosure cards, to create a personalized invitation suite. It can be difficult to visualize the different options, so we’ve pulled them together here to make that easier!
Back pockets are adhered to the reverse of the invitation card, holding all the enclosure cards. We have both horizontal and vertical back pockets for our invitation sizes in our library. We can also create a custom pocket, for a fully custom look.
We offer belly bands in any of our text weight papers. These can be printed with a pattern or text or plain. They come to you scored with adhesive to help you assemble your invitation suite once they are ready for mailing. Typically belly bands are 1.75”, though we can also create a taller belly band if you’d prefer.
Gatefolds are a great way to add a pop of color to your invitation suite, while also adding a touch of drama. We can create a gatefold using any of our colored papers, including our metallic papers and vellum.
Another option is adding metallic thread to subtly tie your pieces together. It can either be simply wrapped around the invitation card, or used to tie on a tag.
Pocketfolds are mini folders that include a pocket for your enclosure cards. Typically your invitation would be mounted on the pocketfold. We offer both horizontal and vertical pocketfolds for (all of the) our invitation sizes in our library. We can also create a custom pocketfold, for a fully personalized look!
Pocket panels can hold your invitation and additional pieces all together, or we can adhere the invitation onto the front of the panel before shipping it to you. The Tannis suite features a printed pocketpanel, with the invitation mounted on the front.
Another way to add romance and drama is by adding a silk ribbon your suite, either tied in a traditional bow or knot, or mounted to the back of the invite card to create a mounted belly band.
