SEMI-BESPOKE DESIGN SERVICE
Our semi-bespoke service takes invitations from our Delirium Collection and tweaks them to make them perfect for you.
You can change the colour scheme and choose a different printing method to personalise the invitation suite you choose even further. As with our Delirium Collection, you can also choose to include extra finishes including bellybands, ribbon & twine, wax seals, metal leaf and vellum wrap. To find out more about these let me know what you would like to add when you contact me. An overview of the process can be seen here.
If you would like to see samples of the different Delirium Collection ranges before ordering then you can order them here. Once you have found the suite for you, please use our order form to get the ball rolling!
Letterpress (or embossed) printing is a technique of relief printing using a printing press, a process by which an impression is created in the paper by depressing an inked surface onto paper. This printing method is luxurious and can be costly as individual metal plates need to be created for each colour and design.
Hot Foil Printing
Hot foil printing is another form of relief printing and involves ‘stamping’ foil into paper using high temperatures and a metal plate with foil. A number of colours are available including metallic, neons, holographic that can be used. This is also a more costly printing method as metal plates are required. However, smaller details can be hot foiled along with digital print to keep costs lower.
Thermographic printing is a post print process that is achieved using thermography machines. Thermographic/embossing powder is applied to wet ink and a radiant oven exposes the powder to high heat. This method of printing results in a raised effect.
Embossed printing is the opposite of letterpress (or debased printing). A metal plate is applied to the back of the paper to form a raised effect. This can be done using inks or done ‘blind’.
