PROCESS

design

Although we specialize in designing originals for each occasion, any of the pieces shown in the Gallery can be altered through color, paper choice, typestyle and a selection of fine ribbons to reflect the essence of your event and personal style. We recommend you look through all areas of the Gallery. You may find a moving announcement that’s just the style you want for that baby shower you’re throwing.

printing methods

We offer letterpress printing, flat print and thermography in over 700 colors.

Letterpress is a traditional printing technique that embeds the artwork into the paper. The press operator hand inks the plates that are used to imprint the designs and lettering onto the paper. The letterpress works to sink the image into the surface of the paper, creating a textured, 3-dimensional design. The process of letterpress printing is a tedious labor-intensive craft that requires the utmost attention to detail and results in a beautiful work of art.

For flat print, we use traditional offset printing, digital, and high-resolution photo quality ink-jet printing. We reserve the right to decide which method of flat printing is best suited for your job based on the quantity and design.

Thermography produces raised printing similiar in appearance to engraving but using a different process. In thermography, a special powder is added to the ink printed on the paper. The printed piece is heated and the powder and ink mixture dries to form a raised effect on the paper.

All inks are archival quality and we use acid-free papers, ensuring your announcement or invitation can be a keepsake admired for years to come.

At this time we are unable to offer engraved invitations.


assembly

Each invitation and announcement is hand-crafted with the utmost care. In the assembly stage, we personally tie each bow and stuff each envelope, (and even add postage occasionally, too) ensuring that each piece is just as beautiful as the next.
