Whether you’re planning an elegant wedding or a unique shower, you want your invitations to match your event and personality. Adding a personal touch can add an element of fun and make your guests feel special. However, it’s important to remember that these details can also impact the overall cost of your invitations.
There are many different printing methods and upgrades available to choose from, which will all affect your final price. The most common upgrades include die cutting and hand-tied ribbons, and some of our designs offer more than one color option to keep the costs down.
One of our favorite printing processes, letterpress is a historic technique that leaves an impression on your paper with inked metal or polymer plates. It’s a great choice for detailed illustrations, photos, and typography. It can be used with any paper type and is especially beautiful on handmade or duplexed paper. Letterpress can be more expensive than digital printing, but it’s typically the least expensive way to print multiple colors in a design.
This traditional finishing option is a beautiful addition to any invitation suite. It’s achieved by printing a design that goes all the way to the edge of the paper, which is called “bleeding” in the industry. This creates a finished, polished look that is sure to impress your guests. We recommend choosing a design that is slightly larger than the final cut size to ensure a clean trim. Etemply
