Wedding Invitation Printing Methods

Digital, foil, letterpress, oh my! Confused about investment differences and which wedding invitation printing method is right for you? Let me lay it all out for you!

Wedding Invitation Printing Foil

Foil Printing

How It’s Made: By far, foil wedding invitation printing is our most popular option – it’s easy to see why! Using a custom-made die of the design, foil is applied to the paper with a combination of heat and pressure. This results in a crisp, slight impression of metallic of matte foil. Foils are available in matte or metallic finishes.

Pricing: Because of the combination of craftsmanship and a custom-made die, foil printing involves the most investment. For a completed three piece suite with each piece printed in foil, our clients investment starts at around $1,300 for 100 suites.

Out of your budget? No worries! Combine foil printing with other wedding invitation printing methods. Or, just use a small accent of foil to bring the investment down.

Wedding Invitation Printing Letterpress

Letterpress Printing

How It’s Made: Using a custom-made die of the design, ink is applied to the paper with a massive force. This results in a crisp, deep impression of filled with ink. See the gray area in the photo? That’s a shadow! Letterpress is an old-school technique for printing and uses vintage machines (often fed and ran by hand!). Like a classic white button down shirt, letterpress printing is never going out of style!

Pricing: Because of the combination of craftsmanship and a custom-made die, wedding invitation printing using letterpress rivals the investment of foil printing. For a completed three piece suite with each piece printed in letterpress, our client investment starts at an average of $1,100 for 100 suites.

Digital (Flat) Printing

How It’s Made: Wedding invitation printing using the digital or flat process is similar to your inkjet printer at home. Our digital prints are performed on a professional grade printer that provides higher color accuracy, resolution and crisp outputs. Digital is great for printing images with multiple colors or printing backgrounds like a watercolor wash.

Pricing: Because using digital or flat processes involves much less human intervention than foil or letterpress, the investment is lower. For a completed three piece suite with each piece printed digitally, our client investment starts at an average of $900 for 100 suites.
