Invitation Card Printing
Invitation cards are often the most underrated part of any event because most people are pre-occupied with planning the actual event. However, be it a wedding event or a birthday celebration, invitation cards are the first glimpse into what to expect on the actual day itself and first impressions always matter.
But not to fret, leave the worrying for your invitation card printing to us. Simply 1) look through the card catalogue below, 2) let us know your needs and your event and 3) we’ll deliver.
Invitation Card Printing Methods
Hot stamping is a premium stamping method that produces prints with a signature shine to it.
So how does it work?
From the picture above, the metal die is heated and acts as an engraver where it permanently etches the design into the material. A foil is placed between the metal die and the material and it is what produces that signature shine. This printing method is extremely hardy, which explains why large brands like Louis Vuitton offers such printing methods for their goods.
Since every design requires a custom metal die, it means that this printing method is costly and is only available for quantities > 500.
Notice how the paper goes through 4 rounds of printing? This explains why Offset Printing is able to print a highly detailed and vivid design.
The cylinder above is called the plate cylinder and has the design etched into it. The cylinder below is the blanket cylinder and can be understood as a roller. The paper is passed between both the cylinders at each stage until all 4 rounds of printing is done. Custom made inks can be mixed with reference to specific Pantone colours, increasing the accuracy of printing. However, because of the number of rounds of printing, this process can also be expensive and hence, is only available for quantities >500.
This is the most economical form of printing. For one, you only need a regular colour printer with the necessary toners and your cards as bases and you’re good to go. This means that the set up cost is lower and is suitable for lower quantities. Unfortunately, this method cannot exactly replicate the intended colour as what is seen on screen and what is eventually printed can slightly differ.
However, remember this signature shiny print from the Hot Stamping method above? Digital printing is also capable of producing such a luxe effect. Simply let us know that this is the effect you’re going for and we’ll print it!
