I really, really, really, want to have box invitations but I have a strict budget. I want to recreate the box below for my wedding. Question is how do I mail this invitation. Do I really have to wrap it in kraft paper or put it in another box? Can I mail it as is and if I do will the box be messed up in the mail? If anyone has any experience with mailing box invitations or kraft boxes please let me know!!!

I would go to the post office and ask what they think (they will also hvae to measure and weigh it to tell you how much it would be for postage). Personally, I would probably wrap it in something like kraft paper.

I’m pretty sure that would have to be in another box or it would get crushed. I’d also check the cost for the postage…

If you’re on a budget, this is not something I would waste money on. It’s just a regular invitation but inside a box? That seems unnesessary. Your postage will probably be several dollars per invitation.

Anything thicker than 1/4″ is considered a package by the USPS, and needs to be processed and priced as such. Because it needs to have the package labeling, your best bet will be to put the invitation inside another box, unless you’re ok with the big printed USPS label. It’s not cheap though.

I would check with the local post office on their rules and regulations. If they require you to put it in another box or mailin envelope will it ruin your vision? Also, if you are on a budget you should know that you are going to get killed with postage. It’s going to be a lot of money for an ivitation that will be thrown out after your wedding…

Thanks everyone! Those are all good points. I guess if I decide to do this I would need to wrap it but I’m not good at wrapping and putting a box inside of a box seems….odd for a lack of better words. Postage is definitely something to consider because I have 100 to send out…any other suggestions on mailing box invitations or just different types of wedding invitations in general?
