Also known as flat printing - this method is perfect for watercolor details and can be combined with other processes such as letterpress or foil!

letterpress

A beautiful classic option where ink is pressed into paper using an age-old method and antique machinery...each piece uniquely pressed by hand! Your entire suite can be done in letterpress, or we can combine digitally printed watercolor elements with letterpress type!

embossing

Similar to engraving in that an image is raised by a copper plate, embossing does not use ink. This printing technique is most frequently used for monograms, family coast of arms, and other small details in combination with digital or letterpress type but also makes an amazing statement on it's own without color anywhere in your design!

thermography

Also known as raised ink printing, this method is similar to engraving but requires less investment. This print method creates the feeling of texture as all (or just some!) printed elements feel and appear slightly "raised" from the paper. This method can also be combined with flat printing for the addition of watercolor details!

foil stamping

A luxurious print method where foil sheets are pressed into the paper, providing a true metallic shine to your suite. Available in a range of colors (gold, silver, rose gold, etc...even holographic!), your entire suite can be foil stamped or we can combine watercolor elements with foil type and details.

engraving

The technique of engraving is one of the oldest, finest, and most formal forms of printing, dating back to the 1700’s. The process involves a copper plate that is etched with a design and text then coated with ink and pressed together with two tons of weight against the paper creating a gorgeously raised impression. Due to the labor of engraving, it is traditionally the most expensive printing method available for invitations.
