Print  Types

Everything you needed yo know 

Sometimes when we explain the printing process to customers we see that look come across their faces….What are they on about? With lots of different options we want to properly inform you so that you can come to the best decision about how you want your final stationery design to look and feel.

 

Digital Printing

Digital print is cost effective with a quick turn around. It also allows for lots of flexibility with multiple colours and patterns and also allows for easy personalisation of guest names on each invitation. Over the years we have decided that we do not like the finish of a laser printer and have opted to use a ink jet finish instead as we feel it looks less mass produced like a flyer you would get handed on the street.

We can literally print any colour you wish as part of a bespoke design and have chosen a set of colours we think work best with our collections for the body of text.

White Ink Printing

Although more expensive than digital print white ink can give you that extra Wow factor to your invitation design if you want to have something a little bit different. This effect can be used on a variety of coloured card stock from anything medium tones such as sandy tones to super dark black and navy. White ink printing still offers the same option to personalise with your guests names as digital print invitations and envelopes.

 

Hot foil 

Hot foiling is the most luxurious print we have to offer. Hot foiling is a technique that uses heat and pressure to add mainly metallic or matt designs to materials.

Your design file is fixed and no variable data such as guest names is possible as a metal plate is cast of your design and that is then pressed into your chosen card stock. 

Your design can have a small element of foiling mixed with digital print media or can have full foiling.

Digital Foil Printing

Digital foil printing offers a less expensive option over hot foiling. It’s simple, A digital laser print of your invitation is put though a heating process with foil and the reaction makes the foil stick to the toner on the laser ink. This creates a smooth finish with no indentations but still has a wow factor. 

This option allows you to add guests names to invitations and envelopes but colours are limited.
