I once worked for an ad agency that used these large 9x12 envelopes to house a very large thank you card that they'd send to their potential clients after a meeting. They did a great job designing the gigantic envelope so it looked fun. It's really important to make them look fun otherwise you'll have people thinking, "Oh no. I am I getting served with divorce papers?"
Here are some fun envelope design idears:
Baby shower invites.
Wouldn't it be great to have a huge baby blue or pink 9x12 envelope with rattles or rubber duckies printed on it? Maybe even the ultrasound picture printed on it! Then the invite inside could be a large 8.5 x 11 card. I doubt someone can say they lost your invite with that!
Many people have unconventional weddings. Why not have an unconventional invite in a custom printed 9x12 envelope? A friend of mine told me about a wedding where all the food at the reception was finger breakfast food. Little french toasts, little quiches etc. It was crazy but who doesn't love breakfast food?!
Basically you could use a custom printed 9x12 envelope for virutally any invite to make a big statement. It's different and will probably be one of the first times someone opens one of these envelopes and smiles. Let's change the world people, one envelope at a time.
Have an Oooo ahahh ahahatastic day!
