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.
