Coloured Card Stocks

Luxurious paper is one of the essential elements of providing my clients with personalised, quality stationery...
this is why I love to keep on top of the latest paper trends and offer a variety of premium stocks for you to choose from. 

Colours marked as premium have a higher price point.
Black or colour digital printing on all lighter coloured card.
White ink printing on darker coloured card.

* Please note, colours may appear differently on screen than in person.

Premium coloured cardstock options

 

WHITE CARDSTOCK

You have a few options when choosing a white cardstock, including both textured and smooth premium soft whites with a weighty feel to them (300gsm - 350gsm). Not your average run-of-the-mill whites and softly coloured...not too cold and not too warm!

Perfect for floral and watercolour designs, or for clients who wish to have a combination of both coloured and white card.

I am always happy to recommend the best to suit your chosen design.

SILK CARDSTOCK 

Many of my designs incorporate photos - Baptism invitations, thank you cards and birth announcement cards. When printing with photos, I recommend our premium 350gsm silk cardstock as this provides a high level of ink saturation. Silk is also a little more budget friendly for clients who require small quantities (less than 40).

KRAFT CARDSTOCK

Kraft is unbleached and natural brown in colour, FDA Certified and carbon neutral. Kraft can be printed with either black or white ink.
All kraft printing is single sided only as the back of this stock is 'toothy'.

TRANSLUCENT CARD / PAPER

This is an opaque paper with a maximum weight of 200gsm. I recommend translucent stock for digital black and white ink printing of wraps and belly bands, or for layering over a thicker coloured card.

ENVELOPES

Many of my invitation designs, including all baptism invitations and birth announcement cards, include complimentary smooth white envelopes, yet sometimes a beautiful coloured envelope can lift the level of your invitations to a completely new level!

All of my clients have the option to request an envelope upgrade to swap out their white envelopes to coloured envelopes. Sometimes a gorgeous coloured envelope can lift the design of your stationery piece to a completely new level!

As the cost of premium coloured envelopes varies, ordering them is not a simple click and order process. Coloured envelopes can be ordered on request (just email me!). Please use the below pricing as a guide.

Invitation Envelope: 120x180mm - $1.25 to $1.75 ea
RSVP Envelope: 105x148mm (C6) - $0.85 to $1.30 ea

ENVELOPE DESIGN & PRINT

Elevate your stationery suite with professionally designed and printed envelopes - convenience plus! All envelope designs are custom designed to match your beautiful invitations. 

** White ink is only available for medium and dark envelope colours. Some envelopes come in iFlap style and some in Euro style flap. I do not hold large amounts of coloured envelopes in my studio as colour trends change often. Please allow 5-7 business days to order them in for you. 

** Envelope colours are subject to availability.
