Panel Invites

Invitations that consist of a single panel often paired with a belly band, laser cut wrap, pocket holder, vellum wrap or another style of embellishment.

Bifold Invite

An invitation that folds in half which is sometimes referred to as a “folder” because you can add a pocket on either panel to hold the insert cards and return envelope. They can be designed to open either horizontally or vertically.

Gatefold Invitation

An invitation with two panels that meet in the center and open up like doors to reveal the wording.

Trifold Invite

An invitation that is made of three connected panels that fold up together like a folder. Each side panel can include a pocket to hold the insert card and response card with mail back envelope. Trifold folders are a great option to hold a removable acrylic invitation in the middle, or an attached panel.

Boxed Invitations

Boxed invitations truly are keepsakes for the recipients. They are often made of velvet or another luxurious fabric material. These invitations are more substantial and heavier than other styles of invitations.
