Please see below for backing layer, envelope and insert colors. Backing layers are used to add another layer to your printed invitation, which is great for added thickness and a pop of color. The printed layer is adhered to the backing layer, and the backing layer adds a border of color around the invite. Some of the lighter cardstocks shown would work well for any inserts. Don’t see the color you want? Let us know and we can search our numerous vendors to find a color for you! These are not “ink” colors, as we print in CMYK and can print any color.
Below is just a SMALL sampling of some of our favorite fonts – we couldn’t possibly list all of the available options, but if you don’t see what you like here, check out www.dafont.com or www.creativemarket.com for more variety, and let us know what you like!
Paper and Printing Options
Due to a high volume of orders, we are not offering our mailing service at this time.
Serendipity’s Mailing Service will save you a lot of time, and we are here to help!
The mailing service entails:
- application of RSVP postage (if RSVPs are needed)
- stuffing the invites and any inserts in the mailing envelopes
- sealing the envelopes
- adding the mailing postage
- hand canceling (if needed)
- and mailing your invitations directly to your guests!
Any left over (or blank) invitations will be mailed directly to you. For example, if you order 55 invitations, but only have 51 that are addressed, the remaining 4 unaddressed invites will be mailed to you. We do hand deliver all invitations/postcards to a postal worker, and hand cancel each one personally to ensure the best delivery to your guests – however, Serendipity is not responsible for any lost or damaged stationery once mailed.
Mailing in Clear Sleeves:
Clear sleeves are technically an envelope, but cooler! Imagine getting a vintage postcard from a gift shop, or an artist print and it’s in a protective clear envelope? That’s what you wold be mailing your postcards in!
How it works:
- address your postcard (write directly on the postcard) or apply a label (we now offer guest address printing on postcards for a flat fee of $75)
- put your postcard in the clear sleeve and seal (our clear sleeves have a peel back seal, no need for adhesives)
- apply postage directly to the clear sleeve. That’s it!
Note: Clear sleeves cost additional postage to mail as they are considered non-machinable by the post office – this means they can not be run through the normal barcoding machines. We think it’s worth it as the clear sleeve and postcard combo is AWESOME. (Cost is the same to mail a 4×6″ or 5×7″)
