Designing invitation cards for your special day is not an easy task. There are so many thing that you should need to consider while designing it like size, color, type of ink and so that should be used on cards. Below are a few types of printings that are used on invitations:
1. Flat printing
It is also known as digital printing and is used for invitation printing purposes. It is the easiest and simplest method of printing. These printing machines are similar to laser printers but use different toners and inks for different invitations. This type of printing is most commonly used as it is less expensive and can easily be afforded by any person.
In this kind of printing process metal stencils are used to make designs on invitations. It is suggested to use pliable and thin paper for letter press printing. In this way metal stencils are effective for printing and paper does not get damaged easily.
Before digital printing was introduced all kinds of invitations including wedding invitations were printed through the engraving process. Similar to letterpress printing in engraving process a metal plate is created. Then this metal plate is inked and used to print design on invitation. Nowadays engraving services are not as common as they used to be. The main reason is the initial set-up of engraving printing is very expensive when compared to other types of printing.
These are some commonly used types of invitation printing.
