Shapes and Sizes

There’s no set standard for wedding invitation sizes or shapes. To give you some ease with making a choice, might we suggest the age-old adage of “form follows function”? In this case, you can think of the function as the cost. The cost of postage to be exact. Different sizes and shapes will cost more or less depending on the envelope sizes being posted out. This is a place to start, depending on your budget. Mixbook offers a wide range of popular sizes that you can select from.

The next thing to think about is the shape of the card. Mixbook makes this step really easy, by giving you a choice of trim for any card. Anything from rounded corners to a classic ticket shape to the vintage crest trim is possible. Orientation is also something to look at, Mixbook’s cards come both in landscape and portrait.


Here’s one of the features of Mixbook’s wedding invitations with photos that make them truly unique and stand out. Many of the different card styles come with an option for real foil. For those cards, you can choose between gold, rose gold, and silver foils. These decorative foils create an extra sparkle to your cards and give off a premium, luxury feel.


The paper you select for your wedding invitations is extremely important. The type of paper for a card dictates its entire look and feel. With any card on Mixbook, you have six premium card paper types to choose from, giving you a wide range of customization.

  • Satin Finish: flexible card stock that gives your invitation a slight satin sheen
  • Signature Matte: this is Mixbook’s flagship card stock that gives a smooth, matte finish
  • Pearl Finish: add shimmer and a gentle sheen to your invitation with this card stock
  • Premium Matte: similar to Mixbook’s flagship card stock in the finish, but thicker
  • Cotton Texture: gives a subtle textured feel to the card, a very common choice for wedding invitations
  • Luxe Board: the thickest card stock offered by Mixbook with a luxurious matte feel
