Letterpress Printed Wedding Invitations
Letterpress Printed Wedding Invitations
If you really want to turn heads when you choose your letterpress printed invitations, then here are a few things to consider. You can do a couple of things with the design. You can go all out and have the busiest design every seen and hope it works or you can get a design that is simple and makes a bold statement.  For one, if you are a bride that is concerned about the environment then look no further than letterpress printing. Many letterpress presses are either run by small electric motors or even older models are still powered by a treadle or foot pumping motion that spins the press. A few letterpress printers have enabled battery power through the use of solar power that constantly recharges the batteries and therefore not relying on coal based power from the utility. This means using letterpress wedding invitations or any letterpress stationery virtually guarantees no carbon footprint from printing your stationery items.

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.

Invitations that are engraved are very elegant and more traditional. The art of engraving has been around for years and is very intricate and detailed oriented. A die is created, usually made of copper like a oyster shell and the paper is and ink is pressed between. The result is a raised feel for the text of the invitation or embossed look and feel. You want t o make sure you always follow proper etiquette when you get these done. Your local stationery store or online vendor can provide this information for you.

Guttenberg got it right when he invented letterpress printing and before long everyone was using letterpress envelopes and stationery. It is by far becoming one of the most popular and artistic mediums out there today. It inspires printers to salvage old presses waiting for the junk yard and brides to be to use for their wedding stationery. It is also more environmentally friendly as some companies are actually using these presses on solar power and making the plates to use from recyclable plastics and metals with a eco friendly water based wash out system. Regardless of all this the end result is what matters and it is the most elegant wedding invitation out there today.

If you are on a wedding budget you definitely want to be sure to include room for either letterpress or engraved invitations. Don't cut yourself short and go for thermography or digital printing. You will always wish you had gone for the better option. Remember this is your wedding and you want to make it sizzle so get what you want and don't worry about the cost.

There are so many choices that it may delay making this important decision about which invitation to use and what designer or company to work with. Just remember that the paper and designer time are the most expensive elements in your invitation. Some of the eco friendly papers are 100% cotton but the are acid free archival quality and will last for generations to come. So be sure not to sacrifice quality in this regard. Look at samples of some of the work and modern wedding invitations you will be purchasing as well to help make your decision. I suggest calling a few companies and get a feel for their designs via samples they can send. This way you will be sure to make the right decision and get it right the first time.
