With this year’s highly-anticipated Royal Wedding only a matter of months away, Antalis has given its expert prediction on what the regal invitations will look like – while taking the opportunity to remind printers of the latest innovations in luxury paper and the opportunity it presents.

In one of the most eagerly awaited events of all time, 19th May 2018 will see Prince Harry marry American actress, Meghan Markle at the St George’s Chapel, London. And with a rumoured 800 high profile guests expected to attend the lavish affair, it is likely that the royal invitations will soon be sent – with Antalis predicting a concept based around stunning simplicity.

Emma Oliver, creative papers product manager at Antalis, comments: “When it comes to wedding stationery, the paper you use carries an important message about the type of couple you are and the type of event you are trying to create. As such, we’d expect Harry and Meghan to keep it classic with a premium substrate, such as our Conqueror Connoisseur, which is simple in design but offers a luxurious, tissue-like tactility; resulting in a stunningly simple appeal.”

The Conqueror Connoisseur paper range from Antalis is the ideal choice for all types of premium applications, including wedding stationery, corporate communications and luxury recreational uses, and the like. The refined paper is composed of 100% cotton fibres, offering a tissue-like touch, high opacity, and even has a choice of complementary silk-lined envelopes for the ultimate luxury finish.

Emma adds: “Following in age-old tradition, all royal correspondence are formally issued in the name of the Queen, therefore we’d expect the paper will be embossed in gold with the St. Edwards crown above the royal cypher stamp. Also, with the soon-to-be princess having previously worked as a freelance calligrapher, we might even expect some typography to produce a stunning inscription.

“Of course, this is all speculation and we look forward to seeing that the final design as details of the Royal Wedding continue to emerge over the coming months. In the meantime, we’d urge all printers to take stock of all the latest premium paper ranges now available, providing a perfect upsell opportunity in wedding stationery, business stationery and other luxury applications.”
