Of course this is personal - but bearing in mind we manufacture envelopes at standard Aussie sizes, then it’s probably wise if your invite fits into one of those.
Our most popular choice for Invites is 120 x 180mm which fits perfectly into our 130 x 190mm envelope. (Note how we allow 5mm each side of the invite for wriggle-room getting in and out of the envelope). This is also the closest to American 5x7” which you may have seen if you’ve been browsing American designs.
This size is standard cost for Australia Post whereas if you choose A5 (148 x 210mm), which needs a C5 envelope, then this will cost you twice as much to post.
Also, the larger you go the more the cost to print – and the more expensive the envelope too so think budget when you choose size.
If you want to add an RSVP card, then we recommend 105 x 148mm or A6 as this can be posted back like a postcard (depending on the design) or used with a C6 envelope.
Usually Wishing Well cards, Info cards or Details cards are smaller than the Invite - which is the centrepiece of your suite - we offer 120x70mm & 80x135mm sizes that would suit these cards.
Most couples will be more extravagant with the Invite and use fancy print processes like Letterpress and Foiling, but keep the additional items more cost-effective – digital or white ink printing.
Please bear in mind that if you have a few invites or use thicker duplexed stocks, then you may need a larger envelope with more wriggle-room than 5mm each side.
We recommend that you always prepare a sample set and check it fits in the envelope you are ordering.
