FREE WEDDING INVITATION SAMPLES

Your wedding invitations set the tone for your entire celebration, so it's important to choose the perfect design. And while there are many different invitations to browse online, there's no substitute for seeing and feeling the invitations yourself. The solution? Ordering Minted's free wedding invitation samples, so you can make sure the look, feel, and quality is exactly what you want.

MINTED WEDDING INVITATION SAMPLES

By ordering free wedding invitation samples from Minted, you can see and feel your actual invitation suite before you decide to purchase. This way you can ensure the ink colors match your wedding colors perfectly, the foil colors are the right amount of shine, the paper weight is what you are looking for, and the printing quality is crisp and precise.

When you order free wedding samples from Minted, you'll receive our beautiful sample kit, which includes handpicked samples chosen by our in-house experts, so you can see all of our high-quality printing methods, paper types, and finishing touches up close:

  • Printing Methods: Minted wedding invitations and stationery are available using several different printing techniques:
    • Standard Printing: Minted's standard printing technique creates wedding invitations that are smooth to the touch. The designs, images, and text are printed directly onto paper from a computer file.
    • Letterpress: Our most luxurious printing option—Minted's letterpress wedding invitations are printed one by one by artisans on antique printing presses.
    • Foil Press: Add some shine and shimmer to your wedding invitations with foil printing. Foil-press printing is available in the following colors: gold foil, rose gold foil, silver foil, black foil, bronze foil, ice-blue foil, glittery gold foil, and glittery silver foil.
    • Gloss-Press: Iridescent Pearl Gloss-Press and Pure White Gloss Press are luxurious printing techniques exclusive to Minted. We deboss translucent gloss onto paper that leaves a beautiful impression.
  • Paper Types: Minted wedding invitations and stationery are available on several different paper stock options:
    • Smooth Signature Paper: This is our recommended paper stock for wedding stationery designs featuring photos. Our Smooth Signature Paper has a smooth surface on the front that is ideal for printing crisp photos, as well as a soft texture on the back. 137 lb., 17.5 point thickness.
    • Signature Paper: Elegant and luxurious, our Signature Paper is the paper type we are known for, with a smooth touch and velvety, cotton texture. The perfect all-around paper. 130 lb., 19.3 point thickness.
    • Pearlescent Paper: Add a soft metallic glow to your wedding invitations and stationery with this subtle, shimmery paper stock. 110 lb., 14.5 point thickness.
    • Premium 100% Recycled Paper: Our most eco-friendly option—this smooth, matte-finish paper stock is manufactured using wind power and is made using 100% post-consumer waste. 160 lb., 17.5 point thickness.
    • DoubleThick Paper: If you like the formality and weightiness of thicker paper stock, this is the one to consider. Our DoubleThick stock is extra thick, with a wonderful creamy cotton texture. 240 lb., 35 point thickness.
    • TripleThickTM Paper (Luxe Museum Board): The thickest paper stock we carry, crafted from three layers of paper, making this premium paper so luxuriously thick that it's basically unbendable. 360 lb., 54 point thickness.
  • Finishing Touches: Minted offers all of the stylish accessories you might need to complete your wedding invitation suite.
    • Matching RSVP cards and enclosures: Once you've chosen your wedding invitation design, you'll want to also include enclosure cards printed with additional wedding details. These typically are RSVP cards, reception cards, accommodations and transportation cards, and maybe even a wedding weekend itinerary card. Minted offers all of these enclosure cards in designs that match your invitation, so all of your wedding stationery will look cohesive from start to finish.
    • Silhouette Shapes: Add personality to your invitation by customizing the card shape. Choose from curved sides, classic notched corners, rounded corners, tag, bubble scallop, scalloped circle, and waved edges.
    • Vellum overlays: Create a luxe, layered look to your wedding invitation suite by adding a vellum overlay. You could include a photo of you and your fiance on the vellum overlay, feature a meaningful poem or quote, or write a sweet message to your guests expressing how excited you are for them to attend the wedding.
    • Belly bands: Keep the wedding invitation and enclosure cards together by securely wrapping them in a belly band. Minted's belly bands are designed to perfectly match your wedding invitation suite.
    • Envelopes: In addition to white envelopes, Minted offers an array of beautiful colored envelopes. Choose from cloud blue, grey mist, silver, spruce, antique rose, kraft, charcoal, navy, black, and aubergine. Minted also offers elegant white-ink printing for guest addresses on most envelope colors.
    • Envelope liners: Surprise and delight guests by adding a matching envelope liner to your wedding invitation envelopes, which guests will notice once they open the flap.
    • Free guest address printing: Instead of writing guests' addresses by hand, save time with Minted's free envelope addressing service. Guests' mailing addresses will be printed on the invitation envelopes in a style designed to match your card.
