Creating Your Beautiful Letterpress Wedding Invitations
Your letterpress wedding invitations are a primary part of the overall wedding package. The wedding invitation is also the first thing that your guest see prior to the wedding. Some guests may even decide to keep the invitation as a keepsake. In order for them to do this it must be elegant and eye catching to say the least. It really will set the them and look of your wedding from that point forward. Usually a bride and groom will customize their invitation to make it truly person and unique to their taste.

Designers of wedding invitations offer a variety of unique wedding invitation designs and services that provide groom and bride a myriad of choices in finding that invitation that will fit their theme and imagination. From modern to traditional wedding invitations concepts and designs are plentiful as the imagination is the limit. Whether letterpress or engraving, both are timeless, providing the element of elegance and beauty you just can't find in digital products today.

Engraved invitations are very beautiful. A skilled craftsman etches the text of the invitation, backwards, onto a piece of copper metal which is known as the die. The raised print that results from using the die comes from using a press to push the paper into the inked die. When a person looks at the back of the invitation, they will be able to see the indention made in the paper as a result of using this process. These invitations do not have to follow any sort of traditional format, but often use formal language.

Perhaps the most beautiful wedding stationery is produced by letterpress printing. If you looking for the oldest method of printing then letterpress would be the one. This is a very intricate technique but one that has been somewhat revised to accommodate our more environmentally friendly times. These plates used to be made of lead type or magnesium and are now mostly plastic photopolymer which is much more eco friendly. This process is the opposite of engraving as it pushes the plate deep into the paper, creating a unique wedding invitation that has a wonderful dimension and tactile nature that only letterpress printing can offer. Engraving just doesn't have the depth or dimension that letterpress does. Especially when using thicker papers for wedding stationery.

When it comes to choosing between the engraved wedding invitation and the letterpress wedding invitation, both are comparably priced, as they both take a considerable amount of time, effort, and expertise to craft. While thermography is about half the cost of traditional engraving and letterpress wedding invitations, it also results in a lesser quality invitation.

When you are making your final decision be sure to remember the type of paper your unique wedding invitation  will be printed on. This can make a big difference in terms of the impression you get from the letterpress and whether or not it is eco friendly. Inks can also be eco friendly so be sure to ask. One of the most important considerations is getting samples of all the work to be sure you get a clear idea of what you are ordering. Good luck with your final decision.
