Some weeks ago you may have seen a post about Trifold Invitations.  The Trifold Invitations are the largest I make currently at Artemis Stationery.  I’m really proud of them as think they ‘re  a big feast for the eyes of the wedding guests who receive them.  While packing in a lot of information about the wedding they’re being used to invite guests to.  A lot of effort and materials go into making these so they are some of the more costly invitations sold by Artemis Stationery.  It was partly with this in mind I designed the Bifold Invitations which this post is about.  Technically most of the wedding invitations out there are bifold.  Bifold does not mean two folds but rather a card with a fold in and two sides.  Hence the Trifold has 3 sides.  What makes our Bifold different than many of the invitations out there is the quality they’re made to.  The card used is normally used for fine art prints while the printing is also done at 600dpi, twice the dpi that most other printed stationery is produced at.  This gives our stationery a brilliant level of crispness and detail.

Bifold and Trifold Bespoke Wedding Invitations

Both the Trifold and Bifold have a panelled design.  What do I mean by a panelled design?  Well the outside of both invitations are made of one continuous piece of card.  The interior though is printed onto separate squares, slightly smaller than each side.  These squares are then mounted on the interior of the invitations.  This gives our invitations a really great quality feel.  I love squeezing them, for a lover of paper and card the feel is superb.   As with all invitations sold by Artemis Stationery our bespoke wedding collections are highly personalised.  The cover will of course feature the names of the Bride and Groom on the cover of the invitations.  While colours, fonts, wording and layouts are also all adapted for each client.  It’s hard to find stationery that could be made more unique and personalised.

The next key point is that the Bifold Invitation has two of these panels mounted on the inside.  This means one panel is normally used for the invitation text.  While the other panel normally incorporates information like accommodation and directions.  It’s really flexible and down to the clients discretion what they want to put there.  A map can be included at no extra cost and there is no charge for guest name printing which is true of all the bespoke wedding invitation types sold by Artemis Stationery.

Finally there is the included RSVP.  This is mounted on the information side and is made to match the design of the panel behind it.  So the RSVP blends into the overall design on the interior of the invitation.

Bifold Invitations maybe a smaller version of the Trifold Invitations made by Artemis Stationery.  They’re often used as evening invitations by clients who purchase Trifold Invitations for their day guests.  But I think they are pretty fantastic in their own right and still very much an invitation that will wow your guests.  If you would like to see a sample of the Bifold Invitations please visit Artemis Stationery for personalised and bespoke wedding invitations and choose a stationery collection to request a sample of.
