PRINTING METHODS

Digital printing

A classic and most economical printing method where ink is used to print your design directly onto cardstock/paper resulting in crisp and sharp images. Digital printing is available with both 350gsm cardstock and handmade cotton paper. However, please note that due to the imperfect nature of handmade paper, you will need to expect small areas where the ink will not fully adhere. This adds to the organic character of handmade paper and does not mean it is of any less quality.

Letterpress

A beautiful old method of printing where metal plates are engraved with a design, then inked up and pressed onto card or thick paper. This results in debossed impressions on the card that is beautiful to the touch. Letterpress is available with both 350gsm cardstock and handmade paper.

 

INK COLOURS

The following colours work beautifully with both printing methods. 

 
 

 

ENVELOPE COLOURS

Eggwhite and Natural: These colours both have slight surface texture that exudes an elegant, classic feel

Ebony: Digital printing on this is possible but only in white ink

Other colours: Smooth finish
