Postal Pointer #5 – Event Invitation Postage and Advice

September 29, 2013 | Kopytek

Here are a few great tips on sending out your event invitations and getting those RSVP’s returned!

You don’t want your guests to have to pay for postage to RSVP to your event. Make it as easy as possible for them to send back their RSVPs by putting a stamp and the return address on the envelopes.

Have the event invitations processed by a commercial printer in St. Louis.

Machines at commercial printers are fast and economical. The event invitations will be perfect every time and exactly the same for all guests. You can also create very complex designs that stand out and are easy for the commercial printers to handle. They can help you out with your designs as well since most good printers have graphic designers on staff.

Weigh the complete invitation.

Before you put all those invitations in the mail, have the post office weigh a complete invite that includes everything so you know exactly how much postage each one will require. This step is a little tedious, but the alternative usually mean invitations returned for insufficient postage, which will throw your entire event planning timeline for a loop. Enclosures will increase your postage, so keep that in mind when you are deciding on extras like maps or souvenir cards.
