Why you should order invitation samples

Wouldn’t it be great to see a sample of wedding invitations before you commit to buy? You might think that choosing an online company like Paperlust means you won’t have the chance to see their products in person. Wrong! To make sure we are delivering exactly what you want, Paperlust offers premium sample packs. Each pack contains sample wedding invitations templates, giving you a chance to see and touch seven different designs. The wedding invitations sample package also includes one envelope and gives you a chance to get the feel for a range of our beautiful premium papers.

We wish we could give everyone free sample wedding invitations but have made the packs available at such an affordable price that no one needs to miss out. For only $5 you will receive $20 worth of samples, including premium print types like real foil and letterpress. That’s the price of a coffee, and the satisfaction you will get from nailing your event invitations will last a lot longer than a latte. We like no fuss so we’ll have the sample packs to you in five business days at the most (you can pay a little extra for express postage) and you can have your invitations finalised in no time.

What to look for

You want people to feel like they are getting a little piece of you as a couple when they receive your wedding invitation. But how do you make it look and feel great, ensuring it includes all the necessary information--all for a decent price? There are a few tips that will help you get it spot on. A wedding invitation should first of all be pretty. You want your loved ones to pull it out of the envelope and pause for that ‘aww’ moment. Secondly, the colours should complement each other. The samples we send you (and the large range of options available on our website), can give you some ideas for what goes together. Take note of which colours we’ve paired together and use that as a guide if you are planning to create your own design or have an existing design tweaked. The ratio of writing to blank space is also key to producing a balanced, professional look. Don’t bog your guests down with an essay, but if all necessary information is included and it still looks too bare, you can always enlarge the font or space the page differently. The good news is that your final design can be tweaked by a Paperlust designer to ensure that your invitation is just right for your big event.

When it comes to a sample, though, you’re not looking for the same things as when you’re looking for the right design for you (although sometimes people do find their dream invite in a sample pack!). Instead of looking for things like aesthetics, wording and layout, you’re looking at quality and the raw materials. A sample pack features different print types like letterpress and real foil so you can see how they look and feel, along with designs on a range of different paper types so you can feel the difference and choose the one you like best when you place your order. It also allows you to look at how well aligned the print is on the paper, how vivid the colours are, and other details. You usually can’t request a specific design in a sample pack, because the pack is put together to show all the different materials and print types, not designs themselves.

So what you’re looking for is:

The paper

We know that sometimes it can take a life event like planning a wedding or building your first home to realise just how many shades of white there are. Likewise, you may not have known how many types of paper exist. We just love paper! It’s our thing, and Paperlust can offer you a premium range of textures and thicknesses so that you can find the exact feel and look you’re after.

Some of our popular paper types include:

  • Matt
  • Linen
  • Metallic
  • Kraft
  • Cotton
  • Vellum
  • Wood (yes, you read that right!)

Paperlust also offers coloured paper sourced from Europe for both your invitation and your envelopes. You may want to make an impression with a splash of red, or keep it simple with a classic navy, and we offer a range of choices. Our sample pack will offer you the opportunity to see a design printed on coloured paper as well as a selection of other paper types so that you can feel the difference between them.

The print types

Whether it’s letterpress, custom foil stamping or the latest in digital printing, our different print types not only look but also feel different to each other. Because these processes vary so widely, it is crucial to know exactly what you are getting into. You can’t feel beautifully raised rose gold foiling from a website. We want to help customise your invitations to suit the style of your event. What better way than a tactile experience with the best that Paperlust has to offer?

Quality and heart

Paperlust are committed to supporting local designers and preserving the environment. We were founded in Melbourne and operate as a platform linking talented designers to customers worldwide who want luxury invitations for all their special events. All of our digital stocks are acid free, elemental chlorine free and are sourced sustainably and accredited by Sustainable Forest Product ™. Our quality shows we care, and choosing the paper, lettering and design that is most ‘you’ shows that you care.

I’m looking for sample wording

Ah, the all important wording. It’s a simple task but can go terribly wrong at times (just not when you’re in our hands). If you’re just looking for sample invitation wording, you don’t need to order a sample pack! Paperlust provides sample wording for wedding invitations free online. Setting the tone is important so make sure to match how formal or casual the invitation wording is to how the wedding will be. If you don’t include a dress code, your wording will imply one so be intentional. You may want to use Paperlust’s wedding invitations sample wording as a base and then tweak it to add a little personality. Remember that the wording also indicates who is hosting the wedding, so try not to step on any toes with parents (especially if divorced/separated).

Now that you know what to look for, order your very own sample pack today so that you can experience all these amazing products for yourself!
