Remember, when selecting an invitation style, keep postage costs in mind. Heavy, lumpy, and non-traditionally shaped invitations may require additional postage. We recommend creating one invitation, enclosing it in an envelope, and bringing it to the post office to weigh for exact postage. Also, try mailing one invitation to yourself to make sure it arrives in good condition. With all your hard work, you want to make sure your invitations arrive safe and sound to your guests!
