These lovely wedding invitations are printed on pearlescent card, and looked fabulous with guest names in calligraphy.
Wherever possible I ask to see a sample wedding invitation, envelope or wedding place card before an order is placed.
Pearlescent surfaces and calligraphy
Pearlescent surfaces can be unsuitable for calligraphy – while these cards were of a high quality and the coating took the calligraphy ink nicely, sometimes a shiny card can be difficult to write on: the ink may not sink into the card, and can spread or bead.
If you have pearlescent wedding invitations, do enquire about calligraphy nice and early so your calligrapher can test a sample.
