Pocketfold Wedding Invitations

The pocketfold wedding invitation is one of the many different formats that we do here at Retro Press. I wouldn't call it a 'style' of invitation, but its more of a function because you can make it into whatever style you like; classic/traditional, rustic, clean or modern; depending on your type of wedding.


Pocketfold invitations are basically sturdy envelopes that contain your invitation and other info/ rsvp slip, thus they are great for containing lots of information and keeping it in one place. You can have different sizes; DL, square or rectangular; again this depends upon personal preference. There are many different outer 'fastening' techniques for them; from belly bands, to twine, to ribbon and a tag, to a wax seal- all of which we do in house at Retro. You can have gold leaf foiling on them or digital printing. 


This type of invitation is quite expensive to produce in relation to just opting for the flat invitation- the pocketfold envelope is custom ordered in for you (depending on what colour you want- there is a huge variety, almost any colour available), they need to be hand put together; every fold needs creasing, sticking and securing, and then there's all the printed luxury paper that goes inside it to account for.
