Invitations & Announcements

Aside from the fancy, embellished line we offer from Carlson Craft, we also print custom invitations & announcements here at Barefoot Graphics, with sizes based on standard Announcement Envelope Sizes.  

Recommended Paper Stocks

•  80# Uncoated Cover (White or Natural)
•  100# Uncoated Cover
•  12pt C1S (Coated Front Side, Uncoated Back/Inside)
•  12pt C2S (Coated 2 Sides)

Our cards are digitally creased to reduce cracking along any folds. We also offer bleeds on our invitations.

Barefoot Graphics can address envelopes and also supply foil envelope seals (stock or custom) for the added "Wow" factor!

Invitation Advice From Barefoot Graphics...

Get the size right. At the end of the day, you want the invitation to fit comfortably in the envelope. Therefore, some invitation sizes have been established based on common envelope sizes. Reference the chart below when deciding what sizes to make your invitations, and what size RSVP cards/envelopes and other information cards will fit in the outer envelope - i.e. A2 RSVP Cards & Envelopes will hitch a ride with an A6 Invitation We see customers putting the words "Save the Date" all the time on these magnets.  It gives the magnet clear purpose and implies an announcement or invite will follow.
