Beware: Overpriced Silk Invitation Boxes

Beware high prices in the internet!
A view traders in the US and from Thailand offer wedding invitation boxes covered with 100% Thai silk or dupioni silk for extraordinary high prices.

Please beware ordering wedding invitation boxes covered with real 100% Thai silk or dupioni silk sold for over 30.00 USD 
Many vendors claim the unit price would be much higher because their product is made of 100% Thai silk, 100% dupioni silk... In fact the fabric price Thai silk versus faux silk is around x6 per yard, however unit price should not be extraordinary high.

We offer 100% Thai silk invitation boxes starting from around USD 4.00-USD 8.00 depending on the embellishment, size and style. When you order from us simply tell us that you prefer to order the product made with 100% Thai silk or 100% dupioni silk cover and we will quote you the unit cost and check on delivery charges.

Aditionally if a product is sold too cheap you must consider the product is manufactured with faux silk and often with very low quality craftsmanship and materials. We believe there are still manufacturers in Thailand using glues that are toxic and harmful and everything but not suitable for the use of manufacturing a quality Thai silk box.

If you would like to learn more about silk and it's origin you can read also our Thai silk article here.

Wedding Pouches & Silk Envelopes

Some customers are looking for very light weight options for their invitation designs. 

A silk envelope is a product very suitable for such kind of requirement. NANGFA is able to customize all wedding pouches and silk envelopes. 

One example is the fabric, here clients can choose from a variety of materials including 100% Thai silk, 100% dupioni silk, fine cotton (for example if the invite is for the birthday party of a boy), and last but not least faux silk (as used for the silk envelope on this picture here). 

Depending on the client our factory can add standard padding or extra thick padding, add embroideries or screens. Very common ordered is initial embroideries and logo embroideries. To give each silk pouch an extra touch of elegance we recommend customers to use one of various crystal buttons instead of a fabric covered button or standard button.

The size can be adjusted to clients needs. Some frequently ordered measurements for this design is 7x5 inches and also 7x7 inches.

Quality & Price
NANGFA has been always the most competitive factory for silk related products. 
We advise: If the price of another vendor is low, better consider ordering samples and compare the quality with ours before. You might get into deep trouble as what you see online is sadly to often not what you get.
We found that several website claim to offer 100% Thai silk invitation boxes but use instead 100% polyester silk for your order. Additionally customers must know that there are several glues used by manufacturers which are not suitable for high end finishing.
