Could I ask some advice on card types from WPD? Out of the three options below, which would you recommend?
Signature Matte (No Charge)
Pearl White Shimmer (+ $ 0.20 per card)
Premium DoubleThick™ Matte (+ $ 0.79 per card)
Shame they don’t have photographs of the different types online, to see the differences. They don’t seem to give specs on exactly what “signature matte” is.

you vs order free samples from them using a code. I actually had trouble with the same issue, to go matte or pearl. I spoke to customer service via live chat online and they helped me. In the end I went with pearl for the invite and enclosure card and matte for the rsvp. I was worried ink would smear on guest rsvp because of the sheen. Pearl gives it a slightly shimmery finish which I think looks beautiful. Mine turned out great! Matte is very basic cardstock feel to it almost. Not cheap but I think pearl finish adds a little something

Be a little cautious! I would recommend ordering samples off everything that you are considering ordering in all paper types. I am planning to order a light pink invitation suite and when i originally ordered the sample in the Pearl White Shimmer, it was gorgeous! And then I ordered it in the Signature Matte and Double Matte and it came out almost WHITE! The reason I love the invitation is because of the pink color. I would have been so upset if I ordered 200 invitations on shimmer paper and 200 RSVPS on the Matte, and had the Matte look totally different. Take the time to order the samples so you know what you are getting first 🙂

Signature matte is your basic heavier cardstock with no shine to it. Order free samples!
