AN INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL PRINTING
Digital printing is our most universal and cost-effective printing option. It can be combined with other types of press printing or live on its own to create a variety of stunning patterns, illustrations, graphics and font/calligraphy designs. With digital printing, the available ink colors are endless and we can create almost any color combination.
LETTERPRESS, FOIL STAMPING, EMBOSSING
Press printing includes any “relief” printing that uses a plate (like a stamp) to directly transfer text/image onto paper. We offer the following press printing options: Letterpress, Hot Foil Press, Embossing/Debossing. These are enhanced finishes and can be added to an semi-custom or custom wedding invitation order by emailing email@example.com.
Our standard paper is a premium, 100% cotton card stock manufactured by Gmund. This 111# card stock is soft to the touch and looks beautiful whether your invites are digitally printed or relief printed. It is acid free, lignin free, PH neutral, ECF/PCF, FSC certified and has archival properties, so the color will never fade.
Our semi-opaque vellum comes in both white and ivory shades and is best used for digital printing and metallic foil press finishes.
