UNDERSTANDING OUR PRINT TYPES
Trust us, we know you just want beautiful invitations that are unique, created by a real designer with style and expertise, all with a seamless customer experience right? Well we can deliver on all that in a heartbeat, but we also want you to be well informed of all our print options before you make your decision.
You see, each print type has it’s own benefits but also restrictions with what we can do with your design.
We’ve outlined exactly what’s what with every print style we have on offer in easy to understand terminology below and to cement your thoughts.
Here are some of the most common printing categories:
The most cost-effective, and simplest printing method available is the turnaround print option.
It has a great turn-around time and its one of the more affordable options to choose from. This technique of printing allows you to obtain good detail and colour.
A relatively new-comer to the digital print block, white ink printing is now available as a premium option. We are able to offer white ink and full ink printing on colored paper, acrylic signs and invitations as well as printing on wood.
It cost a little more than regular digital printing, but creates a beautiful effect.
Foil printing really is having a moment right now. It’s supremely elegant and exudes a feeling of class and style.
Similarly to letterpress printing, foil printing requires plates to be made for each piece. However, instead of ink, sheets of foil are pressed into the paper. Foil also comes in a wide variety of colours!
Laser cutting is truly unique in it’s own right and evidently has the WOW factor. This technique is extremely beautiful and eye-catching.
A myriad of materials can be used, from paper, to wood and even perspex (just to name a few). The possibilities are truly endless with this magnificently modern finishing technique.
The most traditional printing method out there.
Letterpress is luxurious at it’s best. It is our most premium of print styles and unfortunately has a price tag to match.
It uses metal plates to press the ink onto the paper. The process leaves an impression behind, giving anything printed with letterpress a cool imprinted texture. Plus, letterpress printing requires thicker paper than normal digital printing. Cotton paper is the primary choice among letterpress printers.
Just remember you can only use one or two colours. Each colour requires its own plate which makes this a pricey option
