Choose a stock to suit you
Did you know that we offer 17 stocks across the Printed.com Wedding Collection? With everything from textured paper to magnetic options for your Save the Dates and even our brand-new Vellum stock – ideal for layering, we’ve got you covered no matter what your style. If you want to get a feel for what’s on offer first, why not order one of our free sample packs?
Go glitzy with Foil printing
For the ultimate fancy finish, you can’t beat metallic foil. Available in six colours (Gold, Silver, Copper, Rose Gold, Blue, Red and Green), digital foiling is the easy way to add a touch of luxe glamour to your wedding stationery, no matter what your theme or style. Gold Foil Wedding Invites are a popular choice, or why not try contemporary silver, copper or rose gold instead?
We offer digital foiling for instant upload on loads of products in theWedding Collection (like Save the Dates, Invites and RSVPs) but if you want to add it to something else, there’s always the option to go bespoke. Digital foiling is also available on Silk, Uncoated or TruCard paper stocks, but if you’re looking to add a shiny finish to a textured stock, Block Foiling is the solution, and our Bespoke team can help you achieve the ultimate finish.
If you’re not sure what kind of finish you need, read our blog on foil printing here, or get in touch with the team. They’re available on Live Chat every weekday from 8.30am ’til 6pm, or by phone or email.

If sophisticated is your style, Spot UV is your perfect companion. Its subtle shine is ideal for pared back, subtle invites and stationery – less glitzy than foil but every bit as elegant, if it’s not on your radar, it should be. Read all about this special finish here.
Paper craft creations
