Iconic nautical imagery and a classical navy colour scheme make this classic wedding invitation suite from our Canary Wharf collection a beautiful option for your seaside-themed wedding.
The classic invitation suite is our most popular configuration and hugely versatile. If you don’t have much to say or want to keep things simple you can even just order the invitation card on its own, which is an ideal option for evening guests.
Most couples opt for a suite of items for day guests which can then be bound, with a choice of a paper belly band, vellum jacket, wax seal and either ribbon or twine to keep multiple cards beautifully neat and together.

If you want to keep things simple or hit a particular budget then you can go without the finishing options.
Items are printed double-sided as standard so if you just need the invitation card itself, or you want to bind a suite of items using materials you already have, then you absolutely can.
Paper Belly Band
The most popular finishing option for a day invitation suite is a paper belly band. The finish of the belly band will match the stock finish of the invitation itself and is often printed in a block colour to provide beautiful contrast.
The belly band keeps the invitation, inserts and RSVP envelope neat and tidy in one elegant package.
Alternatively, you can opt for ribbon or twine to take the belly band’s place.
Vellum & Wax Seal
Intended to be combined with a paper belly band, a vellum jacket and wax seal provides a timeless and elegant finish.
Vellum has a soft feel and is translucent, allowing colouring from the invitation and belly band to come through. The join in the vellum is then fastened with a gorgeous hand-pressed wax seal, with four different designs in ten different colours - or even opt for bespoke engraving.
Our Invitations are professionally printed on a choice of exceptional cardstock finishes using a professional grade laser printing system. Text, accents, borders and paper belly bands are all colour customisable, as is the wording used.

In each case the design on the envelopes will match that of your invitations, using the same typography combinations used on your invitations themselves.
By default invitations are provided un-assembled, with instructions provided for how to bind your invitations such as using vellum jackets, wax seals, belly bands and tying of ribbon or twine.
If assembly is required, this is charged at £25 per order, and is only recommended in the following scenarios:
The invitations provided are not personalised with guest names
Invitation envelope address printing is ordered
This saves you from having to open a suite that has been assembled closed, only to have to close it again once you’ve addressed or checked the invitations.
For orders that are provided un-assembled, the right lengths of materials are provided, wax seals will be self-adhesive and, in the case of belly bands, a tape pen will be provided in the box so that these can be stuck.
All of our Invitations include a proofing process where pdf files are created and sent by email for review; this proofing process includes colouring in addition to wording. Two further rounds are included as standard.
Electronic proofing process via email
First round of proofs sent within 48 hours of your order being placed
Standard printing turnaround: 1 week
Shipping: Via Courier (48 hours)
