Picking the perfect card for your invites starts here.

Below is an explanation of the common cardstocks we use here at Be My Guest. There’s photos too, but please be aware that it’s pretty hard to represent colour accurately over a computer. That’s because colour appearance will vary from computer to computer depending on colour, contrast, and brightness settings on each computer, and surrounding lighting conditions.

Your very best option is to order a Sample Pack and we will send you some swatches of our luxe cardstocks.

Our versatile standard semi-gloss option is 300gsm. It’s a satin surface perfect for printing a full flood colour or photographs onto.  

It is an environmentally responsible paper, produced using Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) Third Party certified pulp from Responsible Sources, and manufactured under the strict ISO14001 Environmental Management System.

Our matte card option is 300gsm. It’s an uncoated surface perfect for soft, romantic florals and a cheaper alternative to our deluxe eggshell cardstock.

It is also an environmentally responsible paper, produced using Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) pulp, sourced from Sustainable & Legally Harvested Farmed Trees, and manufactured under the strict ISO14001 Environmental Management System.

This 270gsm card has a lightly textured surface (aka ‘eggshell’) and a matte finish. 

It is an environmentally responsible paper, produced using Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF), Third Party certified pulp from Responsible Sources, and manufactured under a mill specific management system using non-polluting, wind generated electricity through the purchase of Green-e certified Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from windpower projects.

This 270gsm card has a textured surface and a matte finish. It comes in White and Cream. One of my absolute favourites, this stock is absolutely beautiful paired with watercolour imagery.

This is also Acid Free, manufactured under a Mill Specific Environmental Management System, and carries the internationally recognised Green Seal eco-label.

This stunning 285gsm metallic card gives a beautiful shimmer finish to any invitation. The Quartz is a delicious soft, off-white, not-quite-cream metallic option.

This translucent paper is a lighter weight, at 113gsm, but what it lacks in heft it makes up for in impact.

The vellum is an environmentally responsible paper, produced using Elemental Chlorine Free Third Party certified pulp from Responsible Sources, and manufactured under a strict Mill Specific Environmental Management System.

This 225gsm brown, organic look kraft card is a popular choice.

Our standard kraft card is an environmentally responsible paper, produced using Third Party Certified pulp from Responsible Sources.

Printing on Textured Card

When printing onto textured card, we often find the printing doesn’t quite get into the bottom of that beautiful texture, leading to unexpected results.  Include a Printed Proof with your order if you have any concerns.

SUSTAINABLE, ETHICAL AND HIGH QUALITY

We take pride in offering you the highest quality products for your special day. One of the ways we ensure this is by exclusively using FSC-Certified cardstocks. We believe that this choice brings numerous advantages that contribute to both the beauty of your invitations and the well-being of our planet.

First and foremost, by using FSC Certified cardstocks, we prioritise sustainable forestry practices. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an internationally recognised organisation that promotes responsible management of forests. When we select FSC Certified cardstocks, we support the preservation of forests worldwide. This means that the materials used come from responsibly managed and harvested forests, ensuring the long-term health and biodiversity of these vital ecosystems.

Furthermore, FSC Certification guarantees that our cardstocks meet rigorous environmental and social standards. By choosing FSC Certified materials, we can assure you and your guests that no illegal logging or habitat destruction was involved in the production process. This certification also ensures that the rights of indigenous communities and workers are respected throughout the supply chain.

In addition to the environmental and ethical benefits, FSC Certified cardstocks offer exceptional quality. These cardstocks are carefully selected for their durability, texture, and appearance, meeting strict criteria for thickness, colour consistency, and printability.
