I’m DIYing our wedding stationary, and have finished the designs for our invitations and RSVP cards. The invitations will be 5×7 inches (flat), and the RSVP cards will be 4.25×5.5 inches (A2 size – they’re going to be postcards). I’d also like to include a details card with directions, website link, etc., but I’m having trouble deciding what size those should be. Should the details card be the same size as the invitation, the same size as the RSVP card, smaller than both of them, or something in between? It probably doesn’t really matter; I just can’t decide what would look best, and I haven’t been able to find any sort of guidelines about these. Any thoughts?

cassclaw: I think the card should be smaller than the invite, but beyond that I think whatever size fits all the info while still being easy to read is fine.

cassclaw: Our invitation card and RSVP cards are the same size as yours. We also did a details card that was business card size (2 x 3.5 inches). We didn’t have as much information on ours as you’ve said you want, though. We just had the time and location of the reception and a reference to our website.
If we were having as much info as yours, I’d do smaller than the invitation card, but same size or smaller than the RSVP card so that the invitation card is still the focal point.

cassclaw: Our invite is A7, our reception card is A2 and the reply card (we’re doing online so it doesn’t have a ton on it) is 4-bar. I played with a lot of pieces of paper and liked the look of different sized cards better.

cassclaw: I think in between makes sense. If your suite is horizontally oriented, make it slightly wider than the RSVP card but less than the invite – vertically, same but taller.

Depends on how many details you have, if there aren’t that many, stick with the A2, if there are, go for the A6 in between the A2 and 5×7.

Well, I ended up making the details card 5×7, mostly because that’s the size that fit all the info and designs I wanted, and it differentiates the invite/details from the RSVP so hopefully no one is confused. Here’s the final product:
Overall I’m happy with how it turned out. Thanks for all your input!

The invites and RSVP cards are similar – I posted them on a previous thread here:
