Flat or digital printing, which it is often referred to as, is ink that is transferred onto the paper via a digital printing press. It is a completely flat ink and can be reproduced in an unlimited amount of colors. Due to this, digital printing is ideal for printing floral, watercolor, or other colorful patterns, guest addresses and escort cards. It is also the most affordable printing method which is great for those with smaller invitation budgets.
Digital printing can also be combined with our other printing methods like letterpress and foil printing. This allows for printing a colorful floral design or pattern on your invitation while still having your names or wedding details letterpressed or foiled. The most popular option is to have your invitation card details digitally printed and then just your names and monogram foiled or letterpressed. The response set and information cards would be then digitally printed as well.
Letterpress printing is a type of printing that dates back to the 15th century which uses a raised printing surface (printing plate or die) and pressure from an antique press. The printing plate is inked and repeated pressure from the press creates an impression of the design in the paper. Each color of the design requires a separate printing plate as well as a separate run through the press.
Similar to letterpress printing, foil printing also uses printing plates and pressure to adhere the foil to the paper. Foil printing however uses metal plates that are heated and then stamped with enough pressure to adhere a thin layer of foil to the paper. Foil printing can be used to create a bright shiny surface or even an opaque white which is great for darker papers.
All of our designs can be customized with the vast selection of colors below. Please keep in mind that letterpress and digital printing will have slight variations in color due to the nature of the different types of processes used. Letterpress printed products will also have inherent differences in inking and may have slight variations in color. The colors shown on digital proofs are approximations and each computer monitor may have color variations. If you are concerned about color, please contact us for swatches.
Our digital and letterpress designs use #118 Savoy Cotton stock in either brilliant white or natural white. This cotton stock is "tree free" and is great for absorbing a luxurious impression.
Our foil designs can also be printed on the Savoy cotton stock or on a smoother stock - 130# Classic Crest which is available in Solar White or Natural White.
