design guide

Our design guide will lead you through all the amazing options you have when designing and choosing your wedding stationery. If you have any questions, please get in touch!

colour print

Colour ink is digitally printed using a high-quality laser printer. A wide range of font colours are available. Digital colour printing allows for personalisation of guest names on your stationery. This print method has the quick turnaround
and is the most economical option.

Digital Metallics

A cost-effective option if you’re after a little shimmer! Available in gold and silver, digital metallics print well on smooth stocks (not available on textured stocks). Digital metallic printing allows for personalisation
of guest names on your stationery.

Hot Foil

A luxurious print method if you’re after something a little fancier. Metallic foil is pressed onto the card stock using metal plates, leaving a slight impression. Foil is available in a wide range of colours, the most popular being rose gold, gold and silver. This print method has a longer turnaround time, but well worth the investment for a bit of pizazz! Personalisation of guest names is not available with hot foil.

Blind emboss

Ultra-modern, ultra-chic.  Blind embossing is where text is pushed upward and above the surface of the card, without using ink. This leaves a tactile, raised impression on the card. We recommend blind embossing for your names and/or monograms only, with the rest of the text printed in colour/white ink. Personalisation of guest names is not available with blind embossing. Please note, depending on the card thickness, the impression may show on the reverse side of the card.

letterpress

The ultimate luxe, traditional print method.
Coloured ink is stamped into the card with metal plates, leaving a gorgeous deep impression in the card that you can see and feel. We absolutely love letterpress on pillowy cotton card stocks.

Letterpress can also be done without ink
(blind letterpress), which is perfect for florals illustrations, patterns or monograms.

Personalisation of guest names is not
available with letterpress.

white ink

White ink is also digitally printed and is perfect for dark coloured card stocks or transparent vellum.  White ink also allows for personalisation of guest names on your stationery. Another budget friendly option that is bound to impress.
