All my invitation pieces are created from either customers artwork supplied or a customer brief where I create the artwork in-house. There is no extra charge for the artwork creation. Proofing is by PDF file on email. I do not use templates but prefer to create each invitaton design from scratch to make them unique.

 

Printing by letterpess can be in any colour. (Inks are mixed using the pantone matching system which makes available hundreds of colours). For the hotfoil elements of invitations I have a sample swatch of house shades. These are gold and silver shades in satin, matt or gloss. I also have a standard white foil for text on dark material and a clear gloss foil to add impact to debossed areas. 

 

Card material is supplied by GF SMITH in the main. Their colorplan material is available in many weights and shades. It is uncoated and slightly textured which gives excellent results with both hotfoil and letterpress. Envelopes and be supplied in a matching shade. For an extra luxury feel I use cranes cotton, also from GF Smith, more textured, also uncoated with a silky feel. This is available in white and pearl white (off white) in a chunky 600gsm.

 

Please get in touch via the contact page if you would like to see a sample pack with foil and letterpress examples.

All supplied on a range of material in weights ranging from 350gsm to 700gsm. My standard paper types are Colourplan or Cranes cotton. The most popular weights for invitations seem to be in my experience 540gsm for colourplan and 600gsm for the cranes cotton.

Main stock material colours available for colourplan are pristine white, bright white(off white) and natural (light cream) although many more colours are available. Cranes cotton is available in either white or pearl white.
