Simple touches can make big impacts on invitations, that’s why I try to incorporate seals on projects as much as I possibly can.
Why use seals? Along with starting/completing a design, a seal can be used to tie in themes, colors, information, initials (or sayings) and most importantly…close the invitation!
I chose to incorporate a felt duck (great to add texture and depth) and a bright orange ribbon for another pop of color. Since the enclosure is white, adding bold colors made a needed dramatic impression on such a blank canvas. However, keep in mind — because seals are often raised, by adding depth you will also be increasing the cost of postage. If you want to include a seal without the added charge go for a flat sticker and string (tie around multiple times to get a substantial effect) to your invitations instead!
