A favoured option of DIY wedding invitation kits out there include the likes of the pocket variety, and sometimes, the ideal wedding invitations company will also offer you the options of printing your personalised invitation wording prior to the delivery. However, out of the variety of options available, there two types of pocket wedding invites that stand out, one being the square horizontal pocket invite, while the other is of the vertical variety.

This variety of a DIY Wedding Invitation kit is also known as a gate folio, as it opens up sideways in a manner, prints can be set in all of the three panels on the inside. You are also capable of adding a custom sleeve on the right hand panel to facilitate other wedding invitations stationery that needs to be accompanied with the invite. The sleeve can be added to your choosing, provided you cut the angles and the shape correctly according to measurement, whether it is a vertical or horizontal sleeve pocket, or even several layers of sleeve pockets categorised for each additional invitations stationery. Some might opt to make this area stand out by using a different colour, but for an elegant approach, using the same colour would a great option. The edge-work of each sleeve pocket can be trimmed using fancy scissors with a scallop, wave, gentle curves and even a zig-zag pattern.
