Paper and Printing Options
All Seventh and Anderson invitations and corresponding day-of paper goods are professionally printed on your choice of paper using a high quality digital press that results in saturated color and crisp text. If you would like letterpress or foil stamping, please contact me for a personalized quote.
Digital printing is a modern printing process that delivers high resolution color and is the perfect choice for bolder, more colorful designs. This is the most common printing method.
In digital printing, the ink lies flat on top of the surface of the paper, creating a smooth matte finish. This style of printing is less expensive than letterpress and still achieves a beautiful, elegant result, making it a popular printing choice for the bride who doesn’t want to sacrifice style for price.
All digitally printed invitation suites are printed on your choice of 130-lb. standard paper in white or natural or 137-lb. pearl shimmer. Paper upgrades to 100% cotton paper in white, pearl or ecru are also available upon request.
Letterpress dates back to the 15th century and is the oldest, and most luxurious, form of printing. A reversed, raised surface is inked and then pressed into paper, creating an impression you can see and feel. Letterpress gives a one-of-a-kind, tactile result that no other printing method can replicate.
Letterpress plates are created for each color that is imprinted, so pricing is based on the number of colors used. Letterpress is available in 250+ colors and printed on 110-lb. cotton paper in your choice of white, pearl or ecru. Upgrades to 220-lb. double-thick paper are available upon request.
Letterpress is luxurious, stunning and is sure to leave a lasting impression for years to come.
Similar to letterpress, foil stamping is a specialty printing process that uses heat, pressure, metal dies and foil film. If you want a shiny, metallic gold or silver for example, foil press is the way to go! Metallic foils have a shiny, lustrous, sparkly finish.
Foil is available in silver, gold, rose gold or black. All foil stamped invitation suites are printed on luxurious, 110-lb, 100% cotton paper in your choice of white, pearl or ecru. Additional paper colors available upon request. Upgrades to 220-lb double-thick paper is also available upon request.
Foil stamping is gorgeous, glamorous and the perfect technique for creating truly stunning wedding invitations.
All invitations and corresponding day-of paper goods are printed on your choice of luxurious 130-lb. standard paper in white or natural, or 137-lb. pearl shimmer. Paper upgrades to 100% cotton paper in white, pearl or ecru are also available upon request.
Many of my clients choose to mix and match between letterpress/foil stamping and digital print – I.e. print just the invitation in letterpress/foil stamping and the rest of the items (reply card, insert cards, etc) in digital print. This is a great way to keep costs down but still have all of the stationery pieces you’d like.
Letterpress and foil stamping are available on any of the studio collection wedding suites or a custom design. If you are wanting a studio collection suite with either of these printing methods, please contact me for a personalized quote.
