There are four primary printing meth- ods that vary in style, feel and price.
• Engraving – In this traditionally ele- gant printing process, text is etched onto a metal plate called a die. The invitation is then pressed into the die, creating a raised image on the
front and a corresponding indenta-
tion on the reverse.
• Letterpress – This style has become
exceptionally popular as it conveys a modern, simple style. Type is pressed into the paper, creating sunken letters.
• Thermography – A form of flat printing, thermography simulates the raised look of engraving for less money. It is easily distinguished from engraving by the shininess of the ink.
• Offset – Flat printing is the least expensive and fastest option. This process is great for brides that choose more elaborate invitations, such as, using unusual paper or an unexpected format where type is not the primary focus.
Whether you plan to exchange vows in a hotel, a place of worship, or on a seclud- ed island beach, show your personal style and create a wedding invitation that truly expresses who you are, your values, and your individuality. It is yet another way to express your distinctively unique style as bride and groom. §
