Printing Methods

We believe in that printing is an art. The Wedding Collection uses the following printing methods. Each piece in the Wedding Collection is designed with a specific printing method in mind (indicated in the collection overview). Customization is available upon request, but may not be recommended for all designs.

 

Perfect for illustrations or designs with multiple colors, digital printing uses computer printers to transfer an ink image onto paper. We recommend smooth-finish paper for digital printing to ensure a crisp, clean image.

Letterpress uses an inked plate to imprint a design onto paper which creates a tactile indentation of the design. Each color of a design is pressed using a separate plate. Both smooth- and cotton-finish papers are suitable for letterpress.

Like letterpress, foil stamping uses a plate to imprint a design. However, instead of ink the plate transfers the design from a foil sheet. Foil sheets have a metallic sheen. We recommend smooth-finish paper for foil stamping to ensure a clean imprint.
