PRINTING METHODS

We offer four different printing methods: Digital Printing, Thermography, Foil Stamping, and Letterpress.

 

Digital Printing

Digital Printing is in most cases the most affordable of all the printing processes, as it does not require custom plate making as files can be sent directly from the file to print.  Digital printing is flat and can print multiple colors at the same time. Any design can be digitally printed, and you can combine digital printing with foil stamping or thermography for a truly personalized piece.

Thermography / Raised Printing
Thermographic printing or Raised Printing is a printing process that causes text or graphics to be raised slightly. The resulting visual effect looks both formal and stylish, hence why it's a process commonly used for wedding invitations.  Thermography produces the look and feel of a higher-end engraved product, but at a fraction of the price.

Foil Stamping

Foil stamping is a special kind of printing procedure where heat, metal plates, die, pressure, an antique press, and metallic paper (foil material) is used to create various shiny designs and graphics onto papers. First a metal plate/die (like a stamp) is engraved with your design. The metal plate/die is then heated and pressed firmly onto your selected card with a sheet of colored foil, sandwiched between the two. As a result, the card is branded with a beautiful metallic finish giving you a luxurious look and feel.

Letterpress

This oldest form of printing will certainly make an impact. Letterpress is when the design/text is made into a plate, which is then inked and pressed into the frontside of soft card. Features of this process when printed on its traditional 100% cotton paper stock, creates a debossed effect in the ink/image areas resulting in a beautiful hand crafted, luxurious, organic and old world feel.
