Everybody talks about wedding invitations, but what about all other terms and items that are associated with them. Below are explanations of some of more common terms and items that youíll probably encounter while shopping for your invitations.
Seal n Send Invitations: This type of invitation is mailed to guests as a single-folded piece (without an envelope) having respond postcard attached to invitation by a perforation for easy removal. Since respond piece is a postcard, you will save on postage for return mailing. Prices for this product normally include seals along with a printed return address on both back flap when initially mailing invitation and on perforated respond postcard.
Announcements: For those who wonít be invited to your wedding but you would still like them to know about your marriage, you can mail them an announcement card. They can be printed on same paper as your invitation but mailed on your wedding day or immediately after with wording stating that your wedding has already taken place.
Reception Cards: If there isnít enough room on your invitation for listing details of your reception or if not all guests will be invited to attend reception, reception cards can be ordered to match your invitations and then be included as a separate insert. Please keep in mind that this card could possibly add to your mailing cost since postage is based on weight.
Respond Cards: These cards are essential to planning for your dinner/reception since an accurate guest attendance count will be needed for food and seating preparations. The respond card along with its mailing envelope will be inserted with your invitation. Remember to include a postage stamp on this small envelope which will also have a mailing address already printed on it so all your guests have to do is fill out card and mail it back by date you have printed on it.
