Before you decide on your colors, ask yourself these questions.

What additional information do I need to inlcude in my invitation that my guest need to be aware of an... an enclosure like a response card? 

Do they have any embellishments like bows, clasps, or buttons?

Should I get square shape or rectangle shape invitations?

If the answer is ‘yes’ to any of the above, you’ll most likely need to pay an additional postage fee. 

The US Post Office calculates shipping based on more than weight alone, so it’s important to consider that before ordering an oddly-shaped invitation. Invitation sized such as 4x6,4x10, 5x7 and 5x8 are starndard invitation size envelopes, therefore, they have the normal shipping rate. But odd sizes such as 5x5, 6x6 and 7x7 are a little different and require extra postage.
