Paper Types & Printing methods

Standard Paper Options

Cardstock | 120 lb Bright White Cover
This is a smooth, heavyweight cardstock with clean edges. The most inexpensive option, however, it makes for a very crisp print. Not suitable for letterpress.

Cotton | 110 lb Ivory 100% Cotton
While also having straight edges, this paper has a lush, cottony texture and allows for a lovely letterpress impression.

Handmade | 150 GSM Ivory 100% Recycled Cotton
This paper has very tangible texture with “natural” edges. It looks gorgeous when digitally-printed, letterpressed, or foil-stamped, and has an organic feel.

Paper Upgrades*

Double-thick Cotton | 220 lb Ivory 100% Cotton
Most-recommended for a deep letterpress impression. This paper makes a statement as it is ultra-thick and luxurious.

Double-thick Handmade | 320 GSM Ivory 100% Recycled Cotton
Also highly recommended for letterpress. If you are wanting handmade paper + letterpress, the double thick option will show the best impression.

*These paper upgrades are available as add-on items. Must purchase in addition to the suite card of choice.

Printing methods

Digital
Ink is transferred to the paper via a professional laser printer (for cardstock) or inkjet printer (for cotton and handmade).

Letterpress
A timeless, centuries-old printing process where each sheet is hand-fed into press that contains a plate that physically makes an impression into the paper.
This method provides a tangible effect to your invitations- your guests will run their fingers across your invitation and feel the indention in the paper.

Foil-Stamping
Similar to letterpress, foil-stamping uses a press that combines heat and pressure to adhere metallic foiling to your paper.
This process adds a glamorous touch to your stationery, and is recommended to be paired with cotton or handmade paper.

Envelope Color Options

The following envelope color options have been carefully chosen to coordinate with any semi-custom invitation.
Black, Forest, Racing Green, Cobalt, and Burgundy cannot be paired with digitally-printed addressing as there is no ink color that will show up on these dark hues.
Calligraphy addressing and foil-stamped return addressing, however, is recommended for these colors.

Single Wrap
Wrapped once, horizontally, around the invitation set. Can be tied in a bow, knot, or sealed with a wax seal. A clean look and nice way to hold the suite together inside the envelope.

Double Wrap
Wrapped twice, horizontally, around the invitation set. Can be tied in a bow, knot, or sealed with a wax seal. A messier, more organic look.

Assembly Options

Addressing

Digital-Printing
Each envelope is hand fed through a high-end Xante envelope printer. Available in a simple serif font or with greenery flourishes to match the coordinating suite.
This option is cost-effective and has a clean, professional look. Not available on darker envelopes.

Calligraphy
Hand-scripted using an age-old method, using a pointed pen nib and dipped in ink. This method is gorgeously romantic, bringing an old world feel to your suite.

Foil-Stamped
Only available for the return address. Adds such a beautiful impression, with a metallic stamped address on your return flap. Highly recommended for darker envelopes.
