Pop Up Occasions – Invitations

With the boom of social media, there are more ways of sending out invites. Some people use facebook to create events and invite their friends – paperless and faster. Others send it through text messages or email. However, if you are having a BIG event or are going to invite important people, having a well designed invitation card is imperative. First impressions last and your invites will reflect the kind of event you are hosting.

Now, if you’re looking for unique invitation cards, then I would suggest you checkout Pop Up Occasions! Their pop up cards adds so much more appeal to every invites.

About Pop Up Occasions as told by Karla:

“Our Pop Up Card business started as a hobby since I was a little kid. I had such fascination with pop up books – on how they made it fold flat when closed and then come to life in 3D when opened.

I studied how these mechanisms work and made pop up cards for close friends to cheer them up on special occasions. I did not take it a step further until my very own wedding – October last year. I, together with my now husband, made our own wedding pop invitation (see it here). When we posted it online and distributed to our guests, we were overwhelmed by everyone’s reaction- they loved it! And eventually, some people also wanted it for their own wedding.

I knew this was a great business opportunity since nobody else in the market today makes these special types of invitations. Our business concept is simple – we want to convey a message in a very personalized, unique, and most unforgettable way possible. Sharing feelings through words is not always easy for everyone, but by incorporating several pop-up and mechanical elements, these feelings come to life!

We started off making pop up Christmas cards for friends and relatives in 2011, and now we make pop up invitations for weddings, birthdays, corporate/marketing events and other occasions – both locally and internationally.”

Their portfolios:
90 Degree Fold – The 90-Degree Fold mechanism is a pop up technique, which by virtue of its name, is viewed best when opened 90 degrees which is also sometimes called “L-shaped”, for that matter.

180 Degree fold – The 180 Degree Fold Pop Up mechanism deploys a similar technique with the 90 Degree Fold, however the only difference is that the recipient needs to open the card fully to 180 degrees until both sides of the card are flat in order to appreciate the full message of the pop up invite.

3D – The great thing about paper is you can mold it into almost any figure you wish and the art and challenge in using it as a pop up invite is being able to make the 3D figure fold when the card is closed – just like magic!

Silhouette – The usual and effective foreground paper color is white coupled with a colored background which gives that stunning effect allowing recipients of the pop up invite to see the intricate detail. The detail includes multiple cuts into the paper with varying lengths and levels that give quite a 3-dimensional effect.


Interactive – Interactive cards slide, swing, move sideways. Some would have tabs you can pull to bring out the surprise that would make the card come to life!
