Questions about printing and paper is very common, this post will cover different resources and types of paper to use for your printable party decorations.
Metro-Events currently offers printing for thank you cards, invitations vinyl banners and posters. Metro-Events uses professional printing resources for printing these items, the printers set the quantities and metro-events does not have the option to change the print quantities that are available. For the invitations and thank you cards, they are sold to me in increments of 25. For the banners & posters these can be sold in single prints. Metro-Events only charge for the design services the print costs are that of the printers.
● Printed thank you cards are printed on 14pt premium card stock, the front of the card is matte so you can write a special note if needed. The back of the card has a UV gloss coating so you will not be able to write on it.
● Printed invitations 14pt premium card stock with full UV protective gloss coating.
The invitations and thank you cards do not come with envelopes, this is the printers policies. Metro-Events recommends purchasing envelopes at envelopemall.com.
● 5″x7″ size invitations the size envelopes you will need is an A7.
● 4″x6″ size invitations the size envelopes you will need is an A6.
