When it comes to wedding invitations, each element plays a crucial role in setting the tone for the celebration of a lifetime. Thermography, often referred to as “raised printing,”  offers the look of engraving for a fraction of the cost, and pairs beautifully with other print processes, like the embossed wreath shown in the invitation below.

What it is: A fine resin powder is evenly distributed over freshly applied ink, and immediately run through a heating chamber, where it melts and fuses with the ink. As the mixture cools, it forms the raised effect characteristic of thermography printing.

What it does: Thermography printing mimics the luxurious look of traditional engraving at a fraction of the cost. Its raised surfaces are also more resistant to smudging and smearing, ensuring that the invitations arrive in pristine condition.

The result: The result is nothing short of spectacular, inviting guests to run their fingers over the beautifully raised surfaces. This tactile experience makes the invitations not just a visual delight but also a sensory one.
