I think invitations tend to look more finished when they are matte vs glossy.

@louisianablue: i agree.

i think glossy is okay for STD but matte is more chic for a formal event. i guess it depends on the personality of your invite…if it’s fun and you have a lot of colors on your invite then glossy would be fine. if your invites are formal definitely do matte.

I went with a linen finish, which didn’t end up being very much extra at all for 50 invites. It looks good. I would definitely stay away from glossy, a coworker got hers in glossy and they looked like an advertisement you’d get in the mail. It made the colors look grainy.

I agree with @louisianablue: a matte or linen finish is much nicer and classier than glossy like a photo
