PREVIEW Traditional Invite GOLD with script style text

Invites - Gold

The gold invitations are only to be used in exceptional circumstances, when tradition or protocol dictate.

These should not be used as a standard invite.

You may be asked to justify the extra cost of printing in gold, so use these gold invites sparingly.

For all other circumstances please use the normal (blue) invitation.


Printing


Gold invites cannot be created using normal colour printers

The gold should be used as a special print treatment using embossing and gold foil (only on the crest, the text should be in black).

This may take time to produce, so you will need to plan ahead for this sort of printing.
