Invitation Printing Processes

When choosing your wedding invitations, another feature you will want to decide on is the printing process. There are four main types; flat, thermography, letterpress, and engraved.


Flat printing is where the letters are printed to create a smooth and flat design.


Thermography is a printing process in which the letters are raised.


Letterpress creates a deep impression into the paper, producing an appealing texture, which is the opposite of engraving, which creates a raised texture.


Engraving is the most expensive form, and considered to be the most elegant. The paper is pressed against a metal plate, causing the printing press to raise the letters on the paper.
