DIY Wedding Invitation Supplies – Paper and More

Please note the following post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated from Paper and More for any purchase you make after clicking. However it is no extra cost to you. Enjoy.

You have decided to save some money and do your own invitations. Finding good quality and variety can sometimes be difficult when you go to craft stores. Although you may find some great stuff there it is hard to find custom items to match your theme and color of your invitations. I did my own wedding invitations and when I was doing them I was not aware of options out there and I struggled to find exactly what I was looking for. Paper and More is a great site that you will want to check out if you are needing invitation items.

So what items should you look for when you are buying online and what will you need ?

  1. We know the easiest item to think about it envelopes. You then want to think about the invitation itself.
  2. It is going to be backed with color, it is going to be in a pocket fold etc.
  3. Will you printing it yourself or will you get a company to do it which may have a bigger variety of paper to print on.
  4. Will you be including embellishments like belly bands, jewels, envelope liners.

Once you have thought of all these things, plan out what you want your invitation to look like and make a list of supplies you will need.

Pro tip: Order a couple extra of everything! This will keep your stress level down when you have messed up assembling one or there is that last minute guest you have to invite.

When everything is all in and you are ready to assemble get some of your good friends and family to help, make a event out of it. It will help you from not going crazy and keeps you entertained.

Here are some of the items from Paper and More you might want to check out. There is so much available and in so many varieties. If you need more information or to order any of them feel free to click and Paper and More will be happy to help.

Paper and more – DIY Supplies

I have to admit I am a paper fanatic.  I was pretty bummed when I decided to close my own little invitation business because I knew I would miss all the paper. There is just something about the colours and textures that I loved.

 I was looking for a company to affiliate with that had product that was similar to what I used for my clients and I was happy when I found Paper and More since they have such a great selection.

 I am in love with pocket invites and pearlescent metallic colours.  These two were my biggest requests when dealing with clients.  Since so many people are so crafty I thought I would share Paper and More and their products to help you make your own invitations.

I have selected what I think are the must haves for your perfect wedding invitation.  Feel free to click the links to get further information and pricing. **This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links

 Must Haves:

 A7 Himalaya Pocket Invites.

Popular Colours

Champagne

Onyx Black

Steel Gray

Aqua Lagoon

Colours that I wish I had gotten to use

 Gold Vine Leaves

Black brocade on Pearl

Brown Bubble Swirl

Cardstock

 Use your wedding accent colour as a layer to mount your invitation part on.

 Belly Bands

belly_band_and_monogram

Hold everything in place with a belly band in the colour of your inside accent colour, or add a pattern.

Monogram Square

Top off the classiness of the invitation you created with a monogram square.  Again with your accent colour or be fun and add another colour!

Envelopes

Don’t forget the envelope for both your invitation and your response card.  Match your pocketfold or again be a little fun and make your envelope a fun colour.

Here’s a tip from learning from my own mistakes.  If you do not have a laser printer metallic paper will not work in a inkjet.  The ink does not work well with the paper and smudges or looks really faint.

If possible budget to get your invitations and envelopes printed from Pockets and more especially if using metallic papers.  It will save you headaches, trust me!

Paper and More Affiliate

We are very excited to announce that we have affiliated with Paper and More.

We decided we want to get together with them as we were looking for a place that had a wonderful selection on paper and pocket invites for our DIY couples out there.
