Which is the most cost effective option if my budget doesn’t allow for specialised finishes?

I would recommend a gatefold or z fold invite – it’s one item that can still fit a fair amount of information on and with colour print only this also keeps costs down.

I ask for a 50% deposit to book your design time, then the remainder is due before final artwork is sent to print.
