Online PR News – 14-May-2010 – – Formal-Invitations.com is a family owned company and a 'leader in diy wedding invitations with a focus on high-end materials' using kits that only look expensive. Their earth friendly ‘green’ wedding invitations are created by layering a heavyweight background card, a printable overlay and a decorative embellishment, all priced affordably.
This season they are expanding their extensive collection with a new 'Anjou' pear green hue and three unique embellishments -- Lokta cord for ties and wraps, copper dragonfly brads and 'pair of leaves' brass charms.
Lokta Cord Embellishment
Lokta is a native shrub in Nepal, harvested by cutting its stem, which regenerates in a few years. The inner bark of lokta is soaked, hammered into pulp then spread into thin sheets and dried by the sun. Lokta cord from Formal-Invitations.com can be used as either a short tie or a wrap to embellish wedding invitations; the ends can be unwound to reveal a beautiful leaf shape. Lokta twisted cord contains 50% recycled lokta fibers, naturally colored using vegetables dyes in four shades: Birch white, Cypress green, Cedar brown and Juniper blue. Lokta cord for 5″ ties is 12¢ each and Lokta for 22″ wraps is 48¢ each. Formal-Invitations.com offers complete wedding invitation kits with Lokta ties or wraps at 94¢ to $1.02 each, including a heavyweight background card, an overlay, the lokta cord and an envelope.
Copper Dragonfly Embellishment
The dragonfly -- a symbol of happiness, new beginnings, change and love – is an ideal adornment for wedding invitations. Formal-Invitations.com’s new copper dragonfly brads are used to attach the printable overlay to their heavyweight cards, creating a high-quality, layered invitation at a great price. Paired with handmade petal paper cards embedded with real rose, marigold and cornflower petals and grass, these brads are perfect for garden weddings and events. They can also be used to adorn place cards and other tokens of the special day.
Pair of Leaves Charm
Charms are used to personalize and embellish a wedding invitation, and this American-made solid brass Pair of Leaves charm, approximately 1 1/2 x ¾ inches, is a natural choice for summer and fall weddings. Formal-Invitations.coms’ charms are attached by punching a hole with a micro hole punch and using a mini brad to attach to the invitation’s card and overlay (punch and brad both sold separately).
Anjou Pear green cards
Anjou Pear is the newest addition to the array of greens available from Formal-Invitations.com: olive, meadow, ivy, forest, kiwi, willow and grass. These modern Anjou Pear Green background cards (5.125 x 7 inches) are 100# heavyweight, processed chlorine free and manufactured with 100% clean, renewable hydroelectric energy. Background cards are pre-cut to the required size and used with vellum or white overlay plus an embellishment; envelopes are also available to complete the invitation. This green looks especially beautiful combined with the new Pair of Leaves charm and a crisp white overlay.
