Add Sparkle to Your Special Event With Foil Invitations

Make sure your invitation gets noticed with foil invitation printing. Foil-pressed invitations elevate the elegance and style of your special event. Print them for weddings, birthdays, business promotions, and other upscale events and be the talk of the town.

  • Dazzle your guests with elegant touches of gold, copper, and silver foil on your invitations.
  • Rounded corners add another layer of class and interest to the design.

What finishes are available for foil invitations?

  • Uncoated Finish. This means the paper has no extra coating or finishing and provides an elegant and classy look. It has no glare, so your foil accents on the invitations will stand out even more.
  • Silk Laminate with Foil Accents. This features dull finish with a luxurious silky feel to the touch. The silk laminate coating makes your cardstock stronger and more water-resistant.
  • Silk Laminate with Foil and Spot UV Accents. These three combinations bring texture and gloss to your invitations. Spot UV areas pick up the light and add more shine to your foil invitations. It also gives a tactile feel for maximum contrast and style.

What Size Do I Need for My Event?

You wouldn’t want to send out jumbo-sized invitations for an intimate party or use mini-sized invitations for a big all-night party.

The size will help you set the tone of your event

  • 4" x 6" and 4.25" x 6" sizes are regular-sized invitations used for birthdays, christenings, and graduation parties. This size is also great for save-the-date announcements and postcard style invitations.
  • 4.25" x 5.5" size is also known as an A2 flat card. This is the ideal size for response cards, RSVP postcards, inserts, and small announcements.
  • 5" x 7" size is perfect for special events such as weddings, achievement awards, formal functions and other milestones. This A7 flat card features generous space which is perfect for wedding invitations.
