paper and printing
All our invitations are printed on professional printers. Our prices are based on
digital offset printing processes. Digital offset printing is an affordable way of
printing smaller runs. It is a four color printing technique that offers sharp,
crisp lines and a uniformity through each piece. The results are beautiful and
your color choices are virtually unlimited.

If you have room in your budget for special printing process, you may want
to consider letterpress or engraving. Letterpress creates an impression into
the paper, producing an appealing texture. Each piece is pressed individually
creating a unique variation of ink coverage and impression depth. Engraving
is the opposite of letterpress, the result being a raised texture. This is the
traditional printing process for formal invitations. Like letterpress, each piece
is pressed individually. Simply exquisite, letterpress and engraving printing have
a rich, warm feel that one can’t help but appreciate.

The texture, finish and quality of the paper choice is crucial to setting the right
tone for your event. We use quality suppliers and offer many different textures,
colors and specialty papers. Our prices are based on 80# matte, linen and felt papers.
Metallic, patterned papers and heavier stocks are available but will incur an additional
price. We will always let you know if your material choice will effect the price and will
be more than happy to discuss alternate materials to accommodate your desired stationery
suite and your budget.
