Planning Ahead With 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.

There are so many options when it comes to designs for invitations today. They are almost endless. What I recommend is either letterpress or engraving for your invitations. These are the most elegant and the oldest forms of printing out there. They really provide an such a glamorous and detailed effect that will make your invitation stand out among others. Either way you decide to go, cost will be about the same for each of these medium. There are many pricing options available as well.

If you are familiar with seashells then you can relate to engraving. Basically, the paper is placed inside the shell and the shell is pressed tightly, compressing the paper and ink and raising the text. This gives a unusual feel to the paper and a distinguished look. You also can see the mark on the back of the paper from this technique so don't be surprised when you see the indentation. Traditional wording and wedding invitation etiquette should be used.

If you looking for the oldest method of printing then letterpress printing 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.

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.

If you are still on the fence and making a decision you want to realize that the paper and 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 you will be purchasing as well to help make your decision. All in all I think you will be happier with letterpress wedding invitations.
