Although I'm all for getting creative and making my own homemade invitations, when it comes to something as important as your wedding, it's best to let the professionals handle it. The ideal situation is to work with an invitation maker to design a personalized invite. Elegant letterpress invitations are very in right now and if you are planning a wedding or hosting a large event that calls for professional invitations, you should consider using letterpress. Letterpress is a five centuries old printing process that now combines old-school printing techniques with digital layouts for a traditional yet modern result. Designs are created on the computer and then turned into pressing plates.
All the type and images are raised up on the plate and form the printed image. The ink is applied to these raised places, and then the plate is pressed onto the paper much like a rubber stamp. Letterpress printing imparts an unmistakable impression in the paper, giving a vivid, three-dimensional appearance that is incredible chic, stylish, and sophisticated. If you are interested in working with a letterpress design team to produce your ideal invite, I recommend Dauphine Press or Bella Figura.
