DIGITAL PRINT This is the nerdy stuff, but each print technique gives you a different finish. Choose from traditional to modern and make sure your awesome event reflects your personality. If you’re after something out of the box, something worth a second glance at, then consider what your invitation is printed on if budget permits. It not only sets the tone but it also won’t be put at the bottom of the drawer that’s for sure. print posse Clean & simple For when you like the look of the design but don’t want anything too extreme. It’s the simplest and quickest turnaround which also aids your pocket with costs. We use standard 350gsm cardboard. LETTERPRESS Premium & traditional FOIL STAMPING Hot to trot Letterpress printing uses old school techniques which have become quite popular in the modern age. It brings a 3D touch to your invites which are printed on a soft cotton stock that you can feel the indentation of the text. It’s the added class and elegance to your wedding and comes in a 600gsm heavy weight. Foil stamping uses traditional hot foil stampers and applies pigment to each card resulting in a slight indentation in the paper with a sweet as reflection. Popular colours are gold, silver and rose gold, but there is a range of other colours can also be applied. WHITE INK the new black White ink printing is great if you plan to use coloured card stocks and it's only slightly more expensive than digital printing. Because it is a similar process to digital printing, it can be used for personalisation like super profesh envelopes and menus. BLIND DEBOSS has it sunken in yet BLIND EMBOSS raise the bar A debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the stock and may protrude slightly on the reverse. The term 'blind' just means no ink is used to do this. This also only requires a standard plate to create this effect. On whiter stocks we recommend a clear or light grey foil to make it legible. Embossing is a process that requires a die and a counter die which pushes the stock upwards (instead of downwards like debossing). Embossing leaves a reverse image on the back of the stock but gives a nice impression you can run your finger over. TRANSLUCENT VELLUM i see through you boo Translucent paper, also known as translucent vellum paper is a cellulose stock that comes in paper or thicker stock. It's perfect for extra details, menus and softens elements with its opaque look and vellum smooth touch. Choose to foil or print with white or digital ink. PVC BOARD signed and delivered die cutting cookies anyone? We use pvc boards for our signage that allows for durability in the Aussie environment. We alter between 3-5mm thick depending on how they will be portrayed. If something is outdoors in direct sunlight we opt for a foamboard that handles that environment better. Either choice, we can custom cut them in any shape and use them for table numbers or small table signage. A traditional diecut is like a cookie cutter. It comes down and when it hits the paper it cuts it in the form of the die shape. These days we can now offer 'digital' diecutting which means we can design any shape and it is cut out without a die so is a much more economical approach.
