Q. What printing methods does Linvites offer?
A. Linvites offers four printing options:
Standard printing uses flat ink and multiple custom colors can be used. This method is a cost-effective option and is acceptable for wedding invitations if you are having a modern, non-traditional wedding.
Thermography is raised print that resembles embossing and often used for wedding invitations. Thermography was created for a more cost-effective method that mimics engraving print method and is very common for wedding invitations.
Letterpress is fine craft printing, produced on antique equipment, that is currently surging in popularity. A custom metal plate with your design is pressed into soft cotton stock, one sheet at a time. The result is lovely crisp typography and fine lines that is indented into stock. The time and skill required for letterpress printing makes this a more expensive option than flat printing or thermography. Also, letterpress most commonly prints on cotton stock which more expensive than stock made from trees.
Engraving is also fine craft printing, in which an engraved plate is inked all over, then the ink is wiped off of the surface leaving only ink in the engraved lines. The plate is then put through a high-pressure printing press together with a sheet of paper. The paper picks up the ink from the engraved lines, making a print. The print on engraved invitations is raised off the stock like thermography, but you can distinguish the difference by turning the stock over and if it isn't smooth on the back, it was engraved. We have impressive options for engraved invitations. They are top-notch and tend to be the most expensive of the print methods.
