Looking for more ways you can make your wedding card look more elegant and interesting? Consider these wedding card invitation printing styles:
1. Digital Printing
One of the cheapest and most well known printing styles for wedding card printing is digital printing. Even though it is cheap, the result it produces is elegant as long as you know how to design it well. Using digital printing is the best way to go if you are on a tight budget but want to put a little bit of extra effort to make your wedding card look better. Digital printing has no restriction on colors and patterns, meaning that you can be really creative with it. But unfortunately, this type of printing style can’t produce texture in the printing.
What this type of printing style does is utilize heat to produce letters or images on the paper stock that you have chosen for the wedding card printing. Thermography is still quite affordable especially considering the elegant and expensive look it produces. In contrary to digital printing, with thermography, you can get a slightly elevated look on the surface of the paper as a result of the heat process printing. The text or image that is made with thermography appears glossy, but the colors cannot overlap. If you want to get an engraved look at a lower price, then thermography is the option that you should go for.
3. UV Printing
UV printing is not much different compared to thermography which also offers a raised texture, but better because it can produce a seamless blend. It is not a very expensive option as well. The downside of UV printing is that it can not be used for too intricate design.
Another alternative that you can choose if you want a raised look on the paper of your wedding card. Letterpress offers an indented look that appears elegant. This option is quite expensive and can only be used for certain types of papers, usually thick ones due to the process of letterpress. The downside of this option is that it has a limited color option.
Engraving creates a raised surface and indentation on the back of the paper. It costs about the same as letterpress but produces a better texture that is more appealing. Unfortunately, this type of printing style has a very limited customization option compared to the others.
6. Foil Stamping
To get a luxurious look for your wedding card, you can try foil stamping. With foil stamping, the words or texts on the wedding card will have an extra shine to it. Unfortunately, this printing option costs quite a lot and has only limited colors to choose from.
Since each printing style has its advantages and disadvantages as well as different costs, you have to know which is the best for you especially based on the funds that you have for the production. Don’t push yourself for an expensive printing style if your budget does not allow.
