A Guide To Acrylic Invitations


Acrylic invitations have risen in popularity over the past few years and are securing their rightful spot as a top invitation suite material. Going with an acrylic invitation suite is a sure way to wow your guests and set the tone for your wedding. Acrylic invitations are not reserved for modern weddings only. By choosing a romantic design, adding a border, and opting for metallic gold printing on acrylic, you can create a stunning romantic suite.

While there are many who offer color printing on acrylic, we are excited to be one of few stationers who offer metallics on acrylic as well. Since acrylic invitations are unlike any other invitation material, there are a few special things to note when planning your acrylic suite. We are here to walk you through the top 3 things to keep in mind for your acrylic suites to ensure your invitations arrive safely to your guests.

No. 01 – Postage

Because acrylic invitations are rigid and not flexible like standard invitation suites, acrylic suites do not qualify as standard mail. Each individual acrylic invitation has to be mailed as a parcel instead. While the overall mailing process is the same, acrylic suites require more postage. Typically an invitation suite needs around 85 cents or so to mail. For acrylic, plan on allocating anywhere from $3 to $4.50 per envelope depending on where you are mailing from and where your guests live.

No. 02 – Envelope Liner or Vellum Wrap

For acrylic suites, including either an envelope liner or vellum wrap is strongly recommended. For our acrylic suites, we take pride in buffing each edge so it is soft and smooth to the touch. However, if you forgo an envelope liner or vellum wrap, you run the risk of the acrylic poking a hole through your envelope if handled too aggressively during the mailing process.

Adding an envelope liner or vellum wrap adds extra protection to your acrylic suite and strengthens the durability of the envelope so it is sturdier for acrylic use.

No. 03 – Acrylic Options

There are lots of different options when it comes to acrylic. While clear or transparent acrylic is the most iconic, we also offer frosted, white, black, or mirror gold acrylic. All different acrylic bases can be printed on in white, metallics or any color.
