Amethyst Watercolor by Hooray Creative for Minted
When it comes to wedding invites, I am always on the lookout for an easy way to add more sparkle. (I mean, pretty much everyone at APW is all in for shiny things. It’s basically our team color.) And while it may totally seem like a wonderful idea douse your invites in Elmer’s glue and glitter, it turns out that wedding guests don’t typically respond favorably to what happens when they open said invites (there’s a reason that glitter bombs are considered a form of punishment).

Which was why I did a happy dance (that may or may not have been set to “Shiny”) when I found out that Minted is launching a brand new, custom foiling option for their wedding invitations. Because you can now get every last bit of text on your invites foiled. I KNOW.
Join me in some shameless ooooh-ing and the aahhhh-ing:

The cool thing about Minted’s foiling process is that they use a hand-applied technique to add opaque foil details—available in gold, rose gold, or silver foil—and that opaqueness means it stands out both on light and dark paper. (Who’s in the market for a wedding invite that is both moody and shiny? [Raises hand]) It’s also super sparkly, way more than a lot of metallic inks, and the best part is it’s a flat $75 fee to add to any invitation. Which means you can get 100 super shiny invitations for under $350.
So for no other reason than A) we like you and B) the world needs more sparkly things in it, today we’ve pulled together some of our favorite custom foil options from Minted for your viewing (and dancing) pleasure:
