These come complete with a white envelope.
They look great when you use a retro laser background photo of the birthday boy or girl but if you don't have an original from the eighties, or if you're planning to use these invites for an anniversary party, you can purchase a poster print of that famous laser beam backdrop and create a new photo to use.
