Choose invitations that actually look inviting. Thick, high quality paper with bright colors or a unique design that makes the envelope stand out from other mail that may arrive on the same day. Your invitations should excite interest even before they are opened, and if you have chosen your design well, they should evoke reminders of the happy couple as well!
Offset Printing. Most printing today is offset printing (also known as lithography). Offset printing has become one of the most popular choices on the market today because they are very cost efficient, they are available through most stationary vendors and printers (both online and off), and the invitations can be purchased "blank" allowing you the option of printing your own information on them. Printed invitations are appropriate for semi_formal and casual weddings. The quality of offset printing can vary greatly, so be sure to look for a printer who can deliver crisp quality and true colors. Note: While the turnaround time for printed invitations is typically short, you should still plan on ordering your printed invitations at least 4μ weeks in advance.
