3 Ways to Dress Up a Budget Wedding Invitation

If you are a bride on a budget, Jaffa Printing has an entire category of invitations dedicated to you!!! Today we're taking one of those budget invitations and showing you 3 ways to dress it up by adding a few affordable options...


The 1st option involves playing with FONTS! Mixing a few lines of script in with the text is a unique way to draw attention to specific details and add variety. The best part about playing with fonts is that it doesn't cost a thing!

2nd you can add an ENVELOPE LINER! If you are a very traditional bride but would like to have a little fun, try adding a POP of COLOR with an envelope LINER! They are available in a wide array of colors and patterns. For pricing information click here.

The 3rd option for dressing up a budget invitation involves adding RAISED print (also known as thermography.) At Jaffa Printing we have both digital and offset presses which allow us to do raised printing. It is a beautiful way to add a touch of elegance to your invitations. As you run your fingers across it you can feel the fonts and design elements bump against your fingers and the ink shimmers when you hold it in the light.

For only $10 per 100 (after the 1st 100) raised printing is a very affordable option for brides on a budget. The BEST part about raised print is that once you pay to have the invite raised, everything else ordered at the same time, i.e.) any enclosures for luncheon or ceremony or thank you notes, will be raised for FREE!

At Jaffa Printing, we LOVE our brides on a budget and we work hard to make sure that the invitation for your wedding is the invitation of your dreams!

3 Tips On How To Create The Perfect Invitation

Tip #1) Gather layout ideas
Search online, check out Pinterest, look at invitation samples to get an idea of styles you like and styles that relate to the type of celebration that you are having. Don't be afraid to combine several elements of things that you like. We are always combining aspects of different invitations to make your invitation unique to you!

Don't worry that you might not like some of your choices. Through online proofs, our designers will be able to show you as many proofs as you need to see until you LOVE your invitations!
 
Tip #2) Choosing your ink colors
When you are picking your colors, keep it SIMPLE. One to three colors should suffice. Beautiful invitations usually incorporate just a few colors of ink, making the entire ensemble cohesive.

If you would like more of a monochromatic look, try requesting different shades of the same ink. Ink color can easily be screened back to different variations. Tone on tone inks will always play together nicely as they are just different shades of the same color.

Tip #3) Picking your fonts
Try to choose a plain, easy to read font for the text and then something with lots of personality for your names. Remember you are the star of the show and it's your NAMES that we really want to capture the attention of future guests!

When choosing the font for your names always check the capital letters to make sure that you like them. Sometimes you will think that you love a font until you see your name in it. Checking the capital letters on some of your favorite fonts will help you make your final decision on the font that is right for you!

Season Favorite's: Double Sided Photo Wedding Invitation

We have been soooo busy designing wedding invitations this season! I thought I would take a breather for just a moment and show you one of my favorites...
We did this version of the Jameson wedding invitation for Jenny. I love the colors she picked and the beautiful photo she provided for the backside. 

The envelope liner with it's whimsical pattern and modern monogram was of course, the finishing touch that pulled everything together!

It was so fun to work with Jenny on her invitations and we wish her the best in her future life with her new husband!

Wedding Invitations: Top 3 Tips for Brides on a Budget

Are you a bride on a budget? Here's our top 3 TIPS to help make your wedding invitations more affordable!

Tip #1: Choose the DIGITAL method of printing instead of going with offset or letterpress. Although we LOVE the other methods of printing, digital printing involves a lot less work and is definitely the most AFFORDABLE! This little tip will save you not only money but time, as it is a faster method of printing.

Tip #2: Opt to go with a phone number or e-mail RSVP instead of the mail back kind. You won't have to pay for an extra set of envelopes to be printed with your self-address and you won't have to pay the postage on those little envelopes either.

Tip #3: Size matters! Don't overlook costs at the post office. Keep in mind that stamps on a perfectly square invitation, whether it is the marquis 5.5 inch size or the royal 7 inch size, have to be hand cancelled at the post office instead of going through the automated machines and it will cost more money to mail.

P. S. If you are looking for beautiful invitations that won't break the bank, check out the Bride's On A Budget section of our website, an entire category of savings!
