Description

At Reads, we understand that first impressions are paramount, particularly when it comes to your big day. Our extensive range of wedding stationery printing services ensures every detail helps your special day go off without a hitch. Whether you opt for one of our customisable sample designs, work alongside our expert team to create something uniquely yours, we're here to make your wedding invitations as special as the occasion itself.

As seasoned wedding stationary printers, we're well-equipped to offer both practical and aesthetic advice. Invitations not only set the tone of your event but also play a vital role in making your guests feel truly welcome. While each couple needs only one invitation, it’s wise to consider additional ones for parents, family, and close friends. We recommend ordering 25% more invitations than you think you'll need to cover any last-minute additions and unexpected mishaps.

Our printing options cater to a variety of preferences, including flat and folded styles across different card stocks like Silk, Recycled, Brown Kraft, Linen, Hammer, and the particularly exquisite Pearlescent. Depending on the style and size—from the compact 'DL' to the generous 'A5'—we ensure the quality and impression of your invitations are nothing short of exceptional. For those fond of the subtle sheen and fine quality of pearlescent paper, we offer a range of shades in both cards and envelopes. Given that colours may not appear accurately on-screen, we encourage you to order a sample pack or drop by to see these materials in person. Please note, certain sizes may not come with matching pearlescent envelopes.

With Reads, rest assured that your wedding invitations will not only meet but exceed expectations, ensuring they mirror the excitement and elegance of your forthcoming celebration.

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. We recommend 5mm of safe area from each edge of the Print Area for Logos/Borders/Text.

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.
