Your design is printed using a high quality printer, and archival inks. Flat printing allows the most intricate details of your wedding paper artwork to be displayed in rich, vivid color. This process is available on our 130# cardstock and handmade paper. With this printing method, we can only print onto paper and envelopes significantly lighter in color than the ink you choose. For example, we cannot print slate grey ink onto a merlot envelope. If you select slate grey ink and merlot envelopes, your return address and reply address will be left blank. Furthermore, flat inks are non-metallic, and not textured - they lie flush against the surface of your paper.

A process typically reserved for printing on handmade paper or fabric, screen printing is a great way to bring your invitation design to life on a variety of textures. An image of your wedding invitation is created using emulsion on a mesh screen, ink is applied to the screen by hand, forcing the ink through the mesh and onto your wedding paper or fabric. This process is reserved for your handmade paper. Screen printing is beautiful way to bring metallics to handmade paper. With this printing method, we can print light colors onto dark paper.  If you select this printing option, your reply address and/or return address will also be screen printed.
