Print Methods

A perfect choice for those on a tighter budget, digital (or flat) printing is an economical choice, and you can use multiple colors. All of our digital printing is completed in house.

Digital Printing

Nothing quite compares to the beauty of letterpress. This method uses a plate created of your design, and using an antique press to “indent” the paper with ink.

Blank Handmade Envelopes
Our handmade envelopes are available in any of our handmade paper colors, and a great choice for a more rustic, romantic feel. Due to the thickness, digital printing is not available on these envelopes.



Envelope liners are a great way to thicken your envelope, and really adds a beautiful touch. We offer pattern styles as shown, as well as city maps and solid envelope liners (White, Ivory, Blush, Soho, and Rain).



Vellum Overlays

Perfect for adding more information such as a website, or simply dressing up your stationery, vellum is a thin, sheer overlay slightly smaller than the invitation. If you choose a design without a graphic, you can add any one of our designs to a vellum overlay to create a unique suite!
