Smitten Invitations Thermography

I know I've had a lot of big news lately, but I've been a busy bee! Smitten Invitations is now offering our fabulous wedding invitations in thermography printing (in addition to our top-notch letterpress printing).

Thermography printing is an elegant yet inexpensive look for wedding invitations. For our cards, we'll be first using an offset printer (with a result similar to a high-end ink jet printer) for the graphics that will leave bold, solid colors, but no noticeable indent. Then we'll do the text in thermography.

Thermography printing is a modern invention, mimicking the look of engraved stationery. While the ink is still wet, a powder is added to the letters and then set with heat. The result is raised text which you can feel if you run your fingers across the paper. Paired with our thick, velvety paper, our thermography printed invitations are worth getting excited about!
