My DIY invitations came with plain white A9 envelopes, but I want to do SOMETHING to make them stand out. I can’t justify spending over $100 on colored envelopes, especially when I already have white ones.
Also, does anyone know if A9 envelopes require more than normal postage? It’s just going to be a flat invite and postcard in the envelope. Thanks

I think A9 is normal postage (unless its too heavy) Bring a loaded sample to the post office to ask them.
You could use a wax seal on the back to add some pizazz. Or glue a ribbon band around it.
If you have a printer that prints on envelopes you could print a border or sorts along the bottom.

I would suggest doing an envelope liner in a bright color to spice things up, and then possibly using a fun address label instead of just printing/writing directly on the envelope.
I don’t know what shape your envelope is, but I’ve made templates for envelope liners before. Use one envelope to trace out the shape of the envelope, then make the template so the liner fits inside the envelope and doesn’t cover the glue. Here’s a link to Paper-Source, which I’ve used for inspriration a lot (they also sell envelope templates and liner templates, but it’s only affective if you’re using their envelopes)
And here is a link to different address labels on Paper-Source. You can also find all kinds of styles on Etsy and other areas, but I like P-S for inspiration.
