Printing Techniques & Paper Stocks

As a letterpress studio, all of the designs in our collection are specially designed for letterpress printing and foil press. Our designs can also be flat (digitally) printed.

Letterpress orders are printed on 300gsm cotton paper, 100% tree free. We have ivory (off-white) or bright white available. For an additional cost, you can upgrade to our ultra thick 600gsm stock (also available in either ivory or bright white).

Digital print orders are printed on 270gsm paper with a subtle eggshell texture. This stock is also available in either ivory or bright white shades.

We also carry additional specialty coloured stocks, as shown across our collection. These stocks are:

– Blush (a gorgeous pale pink shade)
– Black
– Kraft board
– Pale grey
– Navy

We use only the finest papers for a beautiful and flawless result each and every time, regardless of the printing technique. As paper lovers, we use the very best stocks that we can get our hands on, and we never skimp on paper quality.

You are more than welcome to mix flat and letterpress printing/foil press within your order (please note that due to the different printing techniques, colours will differ.)

Ink Colours

We have a list of our favourite, most loved ink colours – view our favourite ink colours here

You are not limited to the colours in our chart however – if you have a specific colour in mind, you can send us a fabric or paint swatch or let us know the Pantone number and we will match it as closely as possible.

Letterpress invitations are available in either 1 or 2 ink colours. Flat printed invitations are available in full colour.

Any design in our collection can be printed in any colour palette, to match your wedding colours, for no additional cost.

Font Choices

All of our designs can be fully customised with your choice of fonts. We find it is usually easiest for us to create your proofs using the fonts that we feel best suit the style of invitation you have chosen, the style of wedding you are having, and the layout of your wording etc. However, you are most welcome to request a different font/s at the proofing stage if you would like to see something else.

Wording

You can find our guide to wording here. We also like the following websites for comprehensive info on wedding wording etiquette, dos and don’ts etc:

Order Quantities

Please note we have a minimum order quantity of 30 pieces per stationery item for flat print orders, and a minimum of 50 pieces per stationery item for letterpress and foil press orders (due to the high cost of making the plates and the set-up costs involved with letterpress printing).
