Wedding invitationsFor all brides, you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and the first glimpse of your wedding style will be through the invitations you send to your guests. Helping brides navigate the thousands of choices available for wedding stationery is Carlson Craft, a leading wholesale printer of personalized stationery. Carlson Craft helps couples with choosing an invite that best represents their wedding style by offering an enormous selection of save-the-date cards, wedding invitations and announcements.

Invitation Tips

  • One of the first things to do when planning your wedding is to make a guest list.
  • Select and order wedding invitations from Carlson Craft four to six months before your big day.
  • Choose colors that coordinate with the other hues in your wedding, draw inspirations from your decorations, flowers, or bridesmaids’ dresses.
  • Select a style that suits the tone of your wedding or reflects a theme, interest or destination. For example, a couple who met at a concert might want to send wedding invitations that look like a concert ticket. Consider botanical invites with pressed flowers for a garden wedding.
  • The way your wedding invitation looks is important because it is going to help show how formal or informal your wedding will be for your guests. This will assist them in knowing how to dress for your celebration.
  • If providing electronic artwork or photographs, for best results save your files for black and white art at 600 DPI and photos and grayscale art at 300 DPI.
  • Mail your invites six to eight weeks before your wedding day.

Save the Date
Save-the-date invitations are a type of notice sent 6-12 months before your wedding day. They usually take the form of a card, postcard or a refrigerator magnet. The formal announcement is sent at a later date.

Pockets
A decorative style of stationary that features intricate folded invitations tucked into a pocket.

Traditional
Traditional invitations feature an oversized card announcement with a layer of tissue, an outer and inner envelope and a reception card. A formal wedding invitation is always printed with black ink.

Casual
Wedding invites that are casual often showcase something different and fun. Splashed with color and imagination, a casual wedding announcement takes the shape of anything from flowers to planes to clouds. Casual wedding invitations often showcase unique embellishments such as shells, ribbons or fun graphics.
