Wedding Invites

First impressions count and, at Reads, we understand that it's the small details that make the big day go off smoothly. That's why we have developed a range of wedding stationery printing for our clients. We believe in total flexibility and can offer you sample designs (fully amendable with your own text and image), the option to create a unique design with the assistance of our expert team, or the ability to use your own pre-existing artwork. Whatever you choose, we will help you make your wedding invitations special.

We are experienced wedding stationery printers, and can help advise you both practically and aesthetically. We understand that invitations set the tone for the event, and are important in making people feel welcome. Although only one invitation is required per couple, we recommend factoring in invitations for parents, family and close friends. It is advisable to order 25% more invitations than needed, to allow for mistakes and extra guests.

Evening/Reception Invitations

Some guests will only attend the evening celebrations. It is important to have invitations available for these guests. We will help you design these invitations, and keep them in a similar aesthetic to your day invitations.

Save-the-Date Cards

Ensure that all your loved ones are a available for your special day. Our Save the Date Cards are an ideal way to announce your wedding date in anticipation of your full invitations. These cards can include location and travel details. As experienced wedding invitation printers, at Reads we can provide these cards as a product on their own or as part of a complete Wedding Stationery set.

Print File Guidelines

Print File Guidelines

To ensure your designs are perfect for printing, understanding the concepts of Safe Area, Print Size Area, and Bleed Area is essential for creating "Print Ready Files." When uploading your files via our website for every order, the Safe Area guarantees that key content is visible, the Print Area outlines the actual size and cutting zone of your product, and the Bleed Area extends to the outermost cut line, allowing backgrounds to reach the edges of your product. This approach avoids white edges for a sleek, professional finish. Position important elements wisely and extend backgrounds as needed for the best printed outcome.

What is the Safe Area?

All content within the Safe Area is guaranteed to appear on your printed product. Content outside this area may be cut off during the trimming process. For best results, keep text and important elements of your photos, logos, and designs within the Safe Area.

What is the Print Size Area?

The Print Size Area is the space between the Safe Area and the product edges. This area defines the actual size of your product and where it will be cut after printing. For optimal outcomes, ensure that all important content is not located in this area and that the background colors/artwork extend beyond this area.

What is the Bleed Area?

The Bleed Area marks the outermost point to which your product could be cut. Background colors or images that extend completely to this line are referred to as full bleed. Full bleed ensures that your background will print to the very edge of your product. We recommend a minimum of 3 mm bleed on the sides and top/bottom of your files. White edges occur when the background does not extend to the bleed line.

Why is it necessary to outline a font?

Outlining fonts for printing ensures consistency, avoids licensing issues, enhances file compatibility, and can reduce file size. It converts text into graphics, ensuring the design appears as intended across all systems and printers, maintaining design integrity and quality in printed materials. This step is crucial for achieving professional-quality prints and customer satisfaction.
