 DESIGN GUIDE

bring your vision to life

Our guide has been created to lead you through the design process. If there is a specific feature you love, but isn’t listed here, don’t hesitate to send us through an enquiry and we will do our best to assist you.

Purchasing a sample pack is the ideal place to start, as they include a wide variety of paper and print methods. Experience the textural features first hand, to help guide you with your overall design decisions. 

print methods

Our designs are brought to life with the combination of luxurious papers and the finest printing methods. Each printing technique will deliver a unique finish and style to your design. When selecting a print method, ensure it reflects the overall tone of your day.

Upon design approval, allow 5-6 business days for digital printing and 14-15 business days for letterpress and foil press printing, plus shipping. 

DIGITAL

Digital print is the most basic print method. Our printers will give colours a vibrant outcome with a flat, smooth finish. Digital printing has the quickest turn-around and is the most cost effective.

We recommend medium-dark ink tones on lighter coloured card stocks for best results.

Printed on 300-350gsm cardstock. 

No minimum order

WHITE INK

Using a similar method to digital printing, instead of printing your design in colour, it is printed in all white ink. It is still relatively cost effective.

Medium-dark coloured card stock is recommended for white ink or translucent vellum for a more subtle effect.

Printed on 300-350gsm cardstock.

No minimum order

Letterpress

LETTERPRESS

Letterpress creates a soft, pillowy impression into the paper with matte inks. It is a more complex and lengthy set up therefore more costly than digital printing. 

We recommend using white or light coloured card stocks. Blind letterpress is also available, where the impression is made without ink. 

Printed on 600gsm+ cardstock.

 Minimum order of 50 pieces

FOIL PRESS

Foil press involves using heat and pressure to stamp foil into the paper, leaving a slight impression and a metallic, shiny finish.

Due to foil being completely opaque, it is suitable for both light and dark card stocks as well as translucent vellum. 

Printed on 300gsm+ cardstock.

Minimum order of 20 pieces.

fonts & ink colours

fonts

Fonts will significantly define the overall style of your design. We have a carefully curated font collection we work with for all custom designs. Multiple font options will be provided after the initial consultation once we have a feel for the style you’re looking for. If you have a specific font in mind that you love please let us know at the beginning of the design process. 

Our semi-custom collection has been thoughtfully designed with each font in mind, however we are happy to accomodate minimal font changes to better suit your personal style if necessary. A more extensive change may incur an additional design fee.

INK COLOURS

Ink colours can be matched to any of your chosen paper colours for both digital print and letterpress. We recommend to use medium-dark ink colours on lighter card stocks for best results. 

Gold, rose gold and silver are available for foil printing. Other colours are available upon request.

envelope COLOURS

We offer premium envelopes that have been carefully hand selected in-house. If you are searching for something specific that is not listed below please let us know upon your enquiry and we may have access to something similar.

Wax seals

The perfect finishing touch, or a delicate decorative feature for your pieces.

Our wax seals are pre-stamped using flexible sealing wax (to avoid any breakage in the post) with a strong self-adhesive to peel and stick for convenience. Wax seals are available blank, with an in-house design or your own personalised design.

A range of additional colours are available upon request.

invitation QUANTITY

When calculating your total quantity, keep in mind that each family and household will only need one invitation rather than one for each guest. We always recommend to add an additional 10 to your final count for last-minute invites, your photographer and keepsakes.

All final quantities need to be confirmed before the print and production stage.
