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.
