Printing Methods

SWEET | feeding platen press from 1893

We offer our wedding invitations with both letterpress and digital printing. Letterpress is a relief printing technique in which a raised plate is inked and then pressed into the paper for a deep tactile impression. We print our invitations one at a time on an antique press, feeding each piece of paper through the press for every color applied. We also mix our ink colors by hand. Letterpress is a labor of love and the end result is a dramatic and beautiful look unmatched by any other printing method.

 

Digital (or "flat") printing is a modern technique in which the ink lies flat on the paper. We offer digital as an alternative to letterpress that can be produced quickly and affordably.  If you love letterpress but are on a tight budget, check out our "mix & match" package which features a letterpress invitation with flat printed enclosures.

Our invitations arrived today and they are absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for your patience with me. I really appreciate all of your guidance throughout the whole process. The outcome has been so so worth it and we are so excited to get them in the post and start inviting everyone. Thanks a million.
