Retro Whimsy Designs

Paper Weight & Texture

Retro Whimsy Designs takes great pride in all the products we offer, and we stand behind them 100%. We use only high quality, heavy weight papers.

Available Paper Options

Our standard paper is our Premium Matte cardstock.  Available in white or cream.  This is heavyweight cover stock with a smooth appearance and matte finish.

We are delighted to also offer the following specialty papers (at NO additional charge): recycled, linen, felt, and ice pearl.  Recycled cardstock is a smooth paper, and is environmentally friendly.  Please note that because it is recycled, there will be flecks in the paper.  Felt cardstock has traditional felt surface, rich and velvety.  It looks good and feels good to the touch.  Glossy cardstock has a smooth surface and a glossy appearance.  Ice Pearl cardstock is a very unique paper with a pearlescent sheen, and is off white in color. 


There are no flimsy invitations here!
