A shimmering, embossed band slips over your invitation to make it look like it's been trimmed in vintage eyelet. And to make things even sweeter, we include satin ribbon in your choice of color to accent the band! Your names are printed on the bright white invitation card above the laser-cut band and your wording is printed below in the format shown in your choice of colors and fonts. These wedding invitations are printed on 94 lb, bright white paper with 105 lb, white shimmer bands. Invitation includes inner and outer envelopes. Customer assembly is required. Please note: a slight variation of color may occur on the back of this laser cut band due to the unique, laser-cutting process.
Size: 5 1/2" x 7 3/4"
Sample Price: Due to the level of craftsmanship required to create this invitation, a fee of $3.99 is charged per sample. Free sample offers do not apply.
We received invitations - little to my knowledge, we had to assemble them all. Making the bow was nearly impossible, so we stuck with a knot.The invites come in a two envelopes - which means double the postage because of the size/weight of the invitation. Also, our lace bands were burnt.. as if the machine creating them was too hot. Bazaar. I've wrote to InvitationsbyDawn three times now with no response.I would choose a different invitation.
Beautiful but beware of postage!

I picked these invites because they were simple and classic with a touch of femininity. When they arrived, they were very pretty. Assembly was easy but still multi-step so knowing this, I wouldn't buy invites with ANY assembly in the future. I also could not tie pretty bows with the shorter piece of ribbon that accompanied these. Instead, I tied a simple knot and they looked great. However, due to the bow or knot (doesn�t matter which way you go), when mailing in the US, the post office will charge you for a �small package� because of its increased thickness. The thickness will not allow it to go through their typical mail machines so you will pay three times what you would have to if there was not ribbon knotted or bowed. I�m now at a crossroads of what to do � pay more money to buy more inner and outer envelopes so I can scrap the knots, repackage and send OR pay big bucks in postage to mail 83 invites. I�m quite disappointed.

I loved the invites when they are put together. I got the colored inner envelope and I think it makes it that much nicer. I was looking for a classic looking invite for our hotel wedding and I found it! I got tons of compliments! The assembly was tricky because the ribbon, although beautiful were that much too short where it was awkward tying a nice bow. They recommend one glue dot per invite. I used 3 to make it secure. My postage was 66 cents wih an enclosure.
Incorrect Color Swatch on web site!!

We were very disappointed with the choice of ribbon color!!! Brides beware!! If you choose the color swatch on line that is for Sapphire, you will get Teal ribbon! Very upset that no one in the company contacted us about the fact that the Sapphire ribbon was discontinued before printing!!! They completed our order with all the printing and sent the teal ribbon! My daughter who had deliberated long and hard over her choice, upon opening the box, began to cry when finding they had sent the wrong ribbon! What a shock! We even ordered the digital proof at an extra charge but yet it still didn't show the ribbon choices. In an email the customer service said they could send a shorter version but that instead of tying a bow(as pictured on their site), we could tie the ribbon in a knot. Finally, I made the phone call to thee company and spoke with a very nice lady to did what she could do to help. Unfortunately, I can not remember her name, she was able to issue a refund. But, being a little skittish, we decided not to reorder invitations again from Invitations by Dawn.

They sent the wrong outer envelope first, but when I called to tell them this, they took care of it right away. One of the few companies that still has great customer service!

I thought that the invitations were assembled like the sample that I ordered, and they were not. I began to assemble the invitations and was very easy. The invitations ended simply beautiful. I love them.

This is great for a victorian or glam style wedding. Very classy and stylish. Well constructed materials. High quality for a good price. I would have liked better instructions on how to put the inivations together with the glue dots and was hard to tie the bows on the ribbon.
It is perfect!!

After looking for the "just right" invitation and previewing many samples. This was by far the best quality for the cost and was just what my daughter was looking for. Once she saw it she knew this was it!!
Beautiful, Elegant and Vintage

For the Price you will be getting something Beautiful, Elegant and Vintage, I loved this Invitations the paper and the tint is a really good quality, everybody loved them, the only part that I was a little bit sad about was the RSVP are so plain so I had to add something to matched the Invitation, overall if you are handy making Bows this are the Invitations that will rock your wedding.
