I recently ordered a sample of a pocket fold to put our wedding invitation and information inserts inside of. The color of the pocket fold is perfect and it is a nice way to hold everything. The only issue is sizing (the pocket is 5X7 and our invitation is ever so slightly larger, like 5.25 X 7.15). Our insert is about the size of a business card. Many companies that create pocket folds will not customize the size on their end. I wondered what people thought if we were to trim our invitations to fit the pocket folds, or if we should look into a DIY project and make our own pocket folds the size we need. I am not an exceptionally crafy person is the only problem, but think I’d be able to use an x-acto knife just fine. There is some extra room on all sides to do the trimming, but I’m not sure about getting everything perfectly even.
Did anyone else happen to use pocket folds? What are other ways we could “bundle” the invitation and information insert together so that the insert doesn’t get left behind/unseen in the envelope. I don’t particularly like the look of a belly band. I thought about twine, but I think that would make it too bumpy. Would there be another way to “attach” the info card to the invitation. The invitation and insert are botanical in theme. I had found small leaf-shaped green paperclips I considered, but that would make the envelope bumpy and probably more costly.
Did anyone just put everything in the envelope without bundling loose items together.
