How we create
Australia’s most established wedding stationery designers
Giant Invitations was born out of an established design agency, boasting prestigious design awards and enviable clientele.
After a decade of servicing the corporate sector and working with Australia’s top brands, the husband and wife design team discovered that they share more than adoration for each other and their two beautiful kids.
It is truly the love of stationery, an affinity for tactile artisan papers and relentless desire to depict love stories on paper that allowed us to pursue our true calling.
We have replaced our boardroom with a cosy showroom studio to live out our dream, to be trusted and be given the special opportunity to enrich the most amazing love stories and encapsulate them through creative design and handcrafted artistic creations.

Having perfected over 1,000 creations in over 20 different print applications, we know a thing or two about invite printing and delivering a print work that meets the highest of expectations.
Our simple ‘love them or leave them’ unconditional quality guarantee speaks for itself.

Planning your nuptials can be overwhelming and stressful enough, without having to worry about how the invitations will turn out.
For us, our brides and grooms are not just clients. They are our friends, and we’re honoured to be invited on their journey and express their personality through art, infused with the best of what local and international wedding invitation printers have to offer.
Laser cutting is a precise science, achieved using high powered laser beams that slice through materials to achieve a preciously defined works of art.
This method is superb in its ability to create beautifully shaped cuts that enhance every detail of your design.
Metallic Foil Stamping
There is no other print element that catches the light and shimmers quite like foil invitations.
Dressed in shades of glossy or low-sheen matte gold foils, rose gold, silver, copper, clear, white or black, the designs can be stand-alone or part of sets enclosed within a laser cut wrap, a velum jacket, or part of a book-style or box encasing.
Letterpress invitations are timeless creations, with an air of simple sophistication and grace. Reborn out of a past era is an ageless printing method which creates deeply engraved ink impression on soft cotton fabrics.
Nothing compares to artful creations of the curvature of stylishly combined fonts impressed into heavyweight plush, lightly tactile cotton fabric. Can be impressive in single colour letterpress or with foil stamping.
Embossing creates a raised pattern or text protrusion and has a visually stunning effect.
By using this effect sparingly and in combination with another print effect such as print or foiling, elements such as names or creative devices can be enhanced in a way that exudes luxury and understated sophistication.
Deboss, the reverse effect of the embossing process can also be applied in the design process.
Gilded/ Foil Edging
For the lovers of distinguished style, gilded or foil edging, as it is also known is a truly luxe finish, one that demands attention and is a perfect finishing touch. Applied on heavyweight stocks in combination with foil stamping or letterpress, the impression will be long lasting.
This highly specialised process of applying metal foil with heat, is a delicate and precise operation, and we are proud to utilise the latest in modern applications to deliver this amazing finishing effect on the budget.
White Ink Printing
Economy printing option that can be applied on coloured paper stocks.
With lightning-fast turnarounds on our overnight invitations range, it’s a perfect solution for coloured stocks or adding personalised details on embellishments, such as velum jackets.
Given its versatility and ease of application its perfect print method for variable data printing, such as addressing dark coloured envelopes.

No Ink (Blind) Letterpress

Wedding invitations are more than just a formal request for someone’s attendance at your wedding; they give your guests a taste of what your special day will be like. Whether you buy wedding invitations online from a wedding cards website, design your own invitations, or get customised wedding invites locally, your invites should exude your chosen motif and theme to provide your guests with a glimpse of how extravagant or simple it will be as well as the type of guests who will be attending. Because these invitations work like teasers, you should take into consideration all the factors that will make them truly enticing and impressive. If you want the most stunning design for your cards, it is ideal to order wedding invitations online or in person from a reputable supplier.
Giant Invitations is one of the best providers of wedding invitations in Australia where you can get wedding cards, place cards, and other wedding stationery needs. We offer top-notch designs and high-end wedding invitation printing you won’t find elsewhere. Our team of professional graphic designers has a combined experience of over thirty years in commercial print and design. You can trust us to deliver only premium-quality personalised invites you and your guests will be stoked about.
If you need some inspiration for wedding invitation designs and don’t know when to start giving out your invites, we have what you’re looking for below. Before that, find out if you can get a design proof when you order wedding invites online first.
Can you request a design proof when ordering wedding invitations online?
If you’re not familiar with ‘design proof’ when it comes to wedding invitations, it’s basically a digital representation of what your final invitation will look like. Before invites are printed in mass quantities, your approval is required, and your decision typically depends on whether or not you like the digital proof. Needless to say, a design proof is crucial in any customised project most especially for wedding cards. If you decide on a wedding invitations order online service, you need to consider whether you can request a design proof or not. Typically, most websites for wedding invitations are willing to provide you with digital proof. Most of these websites, however, only use an online editor for proofing.
At Giant Invitations, we don’t use online editors; our professional designers will craft your digital proofs themselves by laying out the wording based on your desired style, fonts, and other specifications. It takes our team one to two days to complete the proofing process, after which you can view your proofs by logging into our website and accessing the order dashboard. You may request changes on the proofs by leaving comments under them. Once you’re happy with your design proof, you may give your approval to our team to start the production.
Is it traditional to match wedding invitations with the wedding colours?
One of the most common tips when designing your invitations is to match them with your wedding colours. But do the colours really need to match? While no rule states your invites should perfectly match your wedding colours, it is ideal that the colours of your invitations tie into the theme of your big day in some way. A rustic wedding invitation, for example, ideally will feature earth tones and natural hues to match the rustic theme, whereas elegant wedding invitations with neutral colours and shiny embellishments are a great choice for more luxurious themes.
Giant Invitations provides you with an extensive selection of print materials, colours, sizes, and print finishes, so creating quality wedding invites that go well with your chosen colours should be easy. You can consult our talented and passionate designers online via video chat or phone call, or you can also visit our showroom in person at Sydney Road, Brunswick, in Melbourne to get some suggestions on what invite colours will suit your theme best.
How much time in advance should wedding invites be sent out?
A good rule of thumb to follow when planning when to send out your invitations is six to eight weeks. You should give your guests enough time to make the necessary arrangements to be able to attend your wedding, so sending your invites early is ideal. If your wedding venue is set to be out of town or even outside the country, it is best to have your invites delivered to your guests at least three months before your big day. Make sure to leave your RSVP details – your phone number, email, or address – on the invitation so you can get a headcount of those who will be attending as well.
Giant offers one of the fastest turnaround times in Melbourne so you can send out your wedding invitations to your guests as soon as possible. We have our own presses, so we have complete control over the turnaround and quality of your invites. Depending on the design, we can get our invites ready within six to eight days; it may take longer if your design is more complex. For a selected range of foil-stamped, letterpress, embossed, and colour-range invite options, we offer overnight turnaround as well for those running late on sending out their invitations.
