Why Letterpress Printing Is Awesome… And Worth the Price
When it comes to planning a wedding, budgets can often go from modest to extreme in no time at all. Many brides and grooms keep an eye on the bottom line, even when it comes to the smallest expense. But it’s important not to become ‘pound foolish and penny wise’ when it comes to prioritizing where to spend your wedding budget. Invitations and wedding stationery can be one area which is often seen as an easy way to save a few pennies – but cutting corners on such a fundamental part of your wedding is short-sighted. Your invitations are not only the first view your guests will receive of your wedding style, but besides your photos are your main keepsake that will need to last you a lifetime.
The Value in Letterpress Invitations
The amount spent on invitations, reply cards and related correspondence or wedding stationery is nothing when compared to how much a wedding party will spend on clothes, drink, decorations, photographs and just about everything else. And while it can be easy to see the value in splashing out a bit more for the best wine or the finest cheesecake, too many wedding parties overlook the role your invitations can play. This is especially true when it comes to springing for letterpress invitations, which do cost more than those printed with laser printers or offset printing methods. But while letterpress may be an older form of printing, more time consuming and expensive than newer technologies, it delivers not only a touch of old world class, but an image of enduring tradition and an instant keepsake for both you and your guests.
An Elegant and Lasting Impression
Letterpress invitations are designed to give an amazing impression – literally. Since they are printed by old world pressing techniques they have indented lettering and a heavier, creamier feel thanks to the ability to print on a wider range of thick cotton and other papers that is not possible with digital printing. The lettering and imagery imprinted on a beautiful and dense paper really stands out and creates an impactful and inspiring message. This makes letterpress invitations a perfect fit for keepsakes in your Wedding Album; it can also give all of your guests the best first impression of your wedding long before the magical day. Letterpress stationery is the little black dress of wedding correspondence – it goes with absolutely everything! No matter if your wedding theme is modern, retro, traditional or bohemian, the high-quality of letterpress stationery complements any style and enhances everything it touches.
The correspondence and stationery you use for your wedding will become a part of your own memories, the memories of your guests and will more than likely become a part of your wedding album. It’s one of the tangible parts of your wedding story – one which includes not only the photographs you’ll take that day, but the keepsakes which become a part of the celebration itself. As one of our clients once remarked, “No-one is throwing this one away!” Using letterpress stationery and invitations will ensure that the memories you make are timeless and will be worth their weight in gold!
