Think about the shape and size of your invitations in comparison with the style of wedding you are having. Formal weddings typically use a rectangular card for a more traditional look. However, if your wedding more on the playful side, think about going circular, scalloped, or even a square wedding invitation. Keep in mind, the bigger the envelope the more costly the postage.
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.
