Thermography is perhaps the most popular method of printing wedding invitations because it is both affordable and eye-catching. This method involves sprinkling resin on the printed invitation sheet while the ink is still wet, then exposing the sheet to heat. The resin and ink fuse together, raising the lettering above the invitation's surface. The end result of thermography wedding invitations is similar to engraving but not as expensive.

Digital printing results in a look that's similar to flat printing but allows for brilliant, long-lasting colors. Digital printing technology uses high-resolution, digital color to print elaborate designs and images in a timely manner with excellent quality. Since digital printing is a faster process, customers get the designs they want in the quantity they want within a shorter timeframe than expected.

Foil stamping is a printing process that results in stunning designs and wording, which shimmer beautifully on paper due to the bold qualities of metallic and matte foils. The process involves creating a die and pressing it against foil. Heat and pressure are then applied to transfer the foiled design and/or wording onto the sheet of paper. Our DeLuxe Collection of wedding invitations features this uniquely beautiful style of printing.

Letterpress wedding invitations begin as digital designs, which are sent to film as a negative and then exposed to a polymer plate (the modern-day "metal" plate). Individual sheets of paper are fed through the press. The plate is pressed to the paper creating a heavily impressed image, which leaves the design and wording crisp and sharp in appearance. This process results in the highest possible printed quality available at Invitations by Dawn, giving your wedding invitations unmatched beauty and distinct character.
