Luxury Wedding Envelopes
Remember, you need envelopes that are a perfect fit for the wedding invitation. If you start by choosing the envelope and colour, then this dictates the design of wedding stationery from the beginning. So often, we see a wedding stationery design that doesn't fit a standard-size wedding envelope. In this case, you'll need to make an envelope yourself, have a bespoke one made or settle for a lower-quality white, which is available in a larger number of sizes. Choosing a standard-size envelope in a luxury paper stock will often save time and money.
All our cut card sizes and pocketfolds fit our luxury wedding envelopes, so this has already been considered; not only this, but our exquisitely crafted luxury envelopes are made from premium paper stock at great prices. This means you don't have to compromise on the quality of your wedding stationery and wedding envelopes.

What to Write on Wedding Envelopes
When writing on wedding envelopes, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, the address should be written in a legible font or clear handwriting. It is important that the address is easy to read so that it can arrive at its intended destination without any problems. The return address should also be clearly written on the reverse.
Wedding Invitation Postage
It is also important to remember that the postage for wedding envelopes must be sufficient for the weight and size of the wedding invitation. Before sending out your invitation, make sure to test the postage with something similar in size and weight. This will save you from encountering issues and help ensure that all your invitations arrive on time.
Printing on Wedding Envelopes
When addressing wedding envelopes for your guests, it's important to be precise and make sure that the guests names are spelt correctly. Hand-lettering the envelopes is a nice, personal touch, but it can take quite a bit of time. To save time and ensure accuracy, many people opt to use a digital address envelope printing service; that way, you can have your guests names and addresses printed directly onto the envelopes.
Our Printing Services
We provide a range of digital print services for wedding envelopes in various colours, including much sought-after white print, and font styles so that you can find the perfect selection for your wedding stationery. Our digital printing service provides a professional and stylish finish, and you can also have a selection of other items printed, such as place cards.
Calligraphy on wedding envelopes adds a touch of elegance and sophistication. Calligraphy gives your wedding envelopes an authentic, personal feel, making them stand out from the rest. Printed addresses can be done in a range of colours, styles and fonts, but hand-lettered calligraphy is truly unique. It adds an old-world charm to wedding envelopes. Do be careful with legibility though, unless you are hand-delivering the wedding invitations.
Wedding Envelopes and Choosing a Font
Choosing a font for addressing wedding envelopes is critically important. While scripts are aesthetically pleasing, they can be difficult to read, or the automated postal system may be unable to cope, leading to delays. Most couples choose a two-font combination, a script type for guests names and an easy to read type for the actual addresses.
