Once you have approved the final design, we get these beauties to print. We will have them ready to ship or for a local pickup within 5 -7 weeks of the date you ordered them.  If you added calligraphy or wax seal, please add on 3 more weeks. 


PRINTING OPTIONS

 

Digital

Using offset printing, this method is methodical and precise. It is flat printed, which means the ink is not raised. This is the most cost-effective type of printing, but still offers a beautiful and thoughtful look and feel. Although there are a few select suites that can be offered on the handmade paper, most all digital printing is done on the 90LB cotton paper or card stock. This method works great with colors and whites, but does not print metallic or shiny text. When a client selects digital printing, the envelopes with the return addresses will be digitally printed as well. 

Letterpress

This method is called relief printing, which means the artwork and text are pressed into the paper, giving the blank space on the paper a raised feeling. Much like digital printing, letterpress uses ink as well. Whites or metallics cannot be used for this method, as it does not show up properly. The client can pick between the 90IL paper, 220LB, or the handmade paper. When a client selects letterpress printing, there will be an option to chose digital or letterpress printing for the return address on the envelopes. 

Foil

Very similar to letterpress printing, foil printing uses metallic or pigmented foil and presses it into the paper. Unlike Letterpress, foil printing works great for metallic colors and white. . This method works with the 90IL paper, 220LB, or the handmade paper.  When a client selects letterpress printing, there will be an option to chose digital or letterpress printing for the return address on the envelopes

 


Paper Options

 

110# Cotton

This is a great paper for digital printing. It is smooth, but still has some lovely  texture to it. We carry this paper in eggshell white or bright white

 

220# Cotton

This paper is a cotton paper and is only used for letterpress or foil press.  It is the thickest paper of the paper types, and feels like the upmost quality. This paper comes in an eggshell white finish. 

Handmade

This paper is what paper dreams are made of. Each sheet is handmade, giving it texture and those sought-after deckled edges. Letterpress and Foil press work great with this paper, and two of our suites are offered digitally on the handmade paper. We currently carry two different colors: grey & cream.
