PRINT METHODS & INK/FOIL OPTIONS

DIGITAL ($-$$) —

The lowest-costing among the three print methods I offer. The sky’s the limit for colours in digital printing and your stationery can be printed on heavy card stock or handmade paper. For bespoke invitations, if you'd like to incorporate watercolour on your stationery, I would highly recommend this type of printing. A monochromatic design digitally-printed on handmade paper is one of my favourites, but this method is lovely as well on cotton or textured paper.

LETTERPRESS ($$-$$$) —

We are proud to offer letterpress services in-house with our 110-year-young cast iron Chandler and Price beauty named Luna. This method is a lovely touch (pun intended!) and is one of the more popular print methods for wedding invites. Nobody can resist the texture and depth of letterpressed stationery. Because a plate must be created for each layer of colour needed for elements on a stationery item, this process usually costs 30-40% more than digital printing and might add 2-3 weeks more to the timeline. This print method is highly recommended for those wanting a more traditional and elegant feel for their wedding. Letterpress looks amazing on beautiful heavy cotton stock, textured paper, or handmade paper.

These colours are merely recommendations, but if you have something else in mind, please inquire prior to placing an order. We’d love to make it as personalized as possible for you!

*Off-White Ink is only available in Letterpress

 

FOIL ($$$-$$$$) —

This print method is one for those who have high appreciation for statement stationery. This has an elegant and regal feel, and although it's one of the more traditional methods for wedding stationery, it has never gone out of style. It can cost 40-60% more than digital printing and, like letterpress, each plate is to be created for each colour used and might add 2-3 weeks more to the production timeline. Foil printing is recommended on thick cotton stock, dark-coloured paper, or handmade paper.
