Making it beautiful – how to make your wedding invites sing!

Our wedding suite templates are all pre-designed to make things simple. Our designers have pre-selected font combinations and colours that they think work well together and will print beautifully. However maybe that’s not quite working for you. Below is some advice on how to select colours and fonts that may be useful.

Tips

  1. Computer screens display colours differently than  printed paper. This is because screens emit light whereas paper reflects light. This causes an unavoidable difference between what you see on your screen and what you see printed. To compound the issue, every monitor is calibrated differently and a poor quality, poorly calibrated monitor will display the same colour differently they a quality, well calibrated monitor. Expect a slight difference between screen colours and printed colours.
  2. Different card stocks absorb different amounts of ink causing a variation. A glossy card prints brighter than a matt card.
  3. Avoid using light colours for  small font sizes. They are just hard to read. The best colours to use for small text is black (or shades of black).
  4. Contrast increases readability. For example, yellow text is difficult to see on white paper but easy to read on a dark background.
