When to Use Invitation Envelopes
Invitation envelopes are the asset you need for your upcoming presentation; social or corporate event. Let’s take a look at some of the common options where invitation envelopes are chosen to convey a polished message.
Wedding & Social: The big day is near. Your invitations are going to reflect and give a first glance into your special day. Coordinate your invitations and envelopes for a visually striking affect that leaves invited guests with a sweet feeling of anticipation. Birthday celebrations, anniversaries and any other social occasion deserves to be presented in a meaningful and memorable way.
Corporate: When inviting your team and clients to a special presentation or business party, surprise them with a gorgeous looking envelope and invitation, instead of sending an impersonal email.
Fundraisers: If you’re running a fundraiser to gather resources in favor of the cause or community you represent, create a positive feeling from the start with personalized envelopes that convey the theme of your event.
The Famous Seven Seconds Rule
Business Insider published a a recent study that proves that a first impression only has seven seconds to prove itself positive or negative. Think about how much time seven seconds really is. Almost nothing. Poof! There goes your chance. When thinking about the presentation and design of your brand or looks for your upcoming event, be sure to provide a stunning first impression, turning heads and catching everyone’s attention quickly and effectively.
Another fact to keep in mind is how the overall appearance of your printed envelope conditions your prospects and pushes them towards a judgment about your event, fundraiser or social gathering. The Paper Worker blog recently uploaded a very interesting infographic showing how our subconscious is influenced by packaging and presentation. “Your packaging represents your brand’s promise to deliver a quality experience.” This statement is equally important for invitations, envelopes and other packaging.
“Your packaging represents your brand’s promise to deliver a quality experience” -
Also, never forget the fact that if the materials, printers and professionals you choose to create your invitation envelopes aren’t high-quality and reliable, your event may give off the wrong impression. Your envelopes are an EXACT reflection of what you have to offer, so be sure to set the tone of your event in order to achieve a high response rate.
Almost 200 Years by Our Side
Envelopes have been around for centuries and have changed numerous times throughout the years. They are as pivotal a part of history as the letters inside! Have you ever wondered where these paper enclosures came from? These facts will amaze you!
Did You Know, according to Smithsonian, “It was Louis XIV of France, the master of the dramatic flourish, who popularized the use of a cover to ensure the privacy of letters”? Louis had someone cut out forms in order to make envelopes for his communications to his court.
Did You Know, according to National Postal Museum, Warren De La Rue and Edwin Hill were granted a British patent for the first envelope-making machine in 1845? Prior to 1845, handmade envelopes were all that were available for use.
