Thermography is the print method used for this wedding invitation. As opposed to letterpress printing where the characters are pressed into soft paper, thermography uses resin and heat to produce characters that are raised from the paper.
In order to create gold print that has a metallic shine to it, it is recommended to use thermography as the print method as opposed to letterpress. Letterpress inks do not have metallics. However, the gold ink that is used for thermography does contain metallic and thus, a shimmering gold print can be produced.
The type of paper that is used for thermography is also different than the type of paper that is used for letterpress. Smooth card stock creates the perfect canvas for raised ink.
This wedding invitation features bold, beautiful, black thermography and a clean white card stock. The names are beautifully enhanced with shiny foil! The black liner adds the perfect finishing touch!
This suite is shown with a vellum belly band and black wax seal.
