Letterpress

Nothing is quiet as stunning as letterpress invitations. Although they are generally simple in design, the printing is what makes it beautiful.

Letterpress is a relief printing process, in which a reversed raised surface is inked and pressed into a sheet of paper. Letterpress is a slow and demanding process that requires a high level of skill. Printers approach the process like fine art printing - each print is unique and great care is taken to prepare for each print run.

CARD STOCK & WEIGHT | CARD SHADES | CORNER OPTIONS | SHAPES & SIZES | COLOUR OPTIONS | ENVELOPES

Card Stock & Weights
We use 100% cotton, made from cotton linters – which are a by-product of the cotton industry. This makes the paper not only beautiful, but environmentally friendly as well.
There are two different weights available.
• 300gsm is the paper weight used for most of our items, and it has a lovely surface texture and thickness.
• 600gsm is twice as thick, and as such holds a deeper, more textural impression.
We find that a combination of 600gsm card for invitations and 300gsm card for enclosure pieces always looks great.

 

Card Shades
When you order you can choose from our two different paper shades:
White - which is a pure, bright paper shade
Soft white - which is an ivory, creamier paper shade

 

Corner Options
Smooth, straight lines or gorgeous rounded curves? We offer two corner shapes on all of our sizes.

Shapes & Sizes
We offer portrait of landscape orientation. Some of our collection designs work well with either of these orientations and some are designed specifically with one orientation in mind. There is plenty of time during design to discuss orientation changes you may like once you place your order.
