When it comes to weddings, everything has to be perfect. That includes the wedding invitation.

A wedding invitation card might be something small, but it is really important as it can give people the impression of your whole event.

There are so many ways you can make a wedding invitation card printing look good. One of the best and easiest way to do it is by putting extra effort into deciding on a suitable printing style for the text or the content of the wedding invitation.

Here are some of them that you can choose:

1. Digital or Flat

This is the most basic printing style that is cheapest and easiest to get. It is popular, simple, as well as cost-effective. Many people choose this printing style because, despite its low cost, it still looks good and beautiful. The result is quite similar to the printing result that the common laser printer can produce, however with a wider range of colors. Digital printing is also faster and the result is a lot smoother as well. Also, it is suitable for many types of papers.

2. Letterpress

To get a letterpress printing style, ink is pressed onto the surface of the paper by using metal plates. These metal plates leave a textured impression on the paper, making it look unique. Due to this process, letterpress requires paper that is thick and pliable so that it can endure the pressing process. A lot of people choose to use cotton paper, which is a type of paper that is softer than the common pulp paper yet more durable. Letterpress processing costs more than digital printing since each wedding invitation card requires one metal plate. It needs to be renewed every one. So, if you want to save up more money, yet make your wedding invitation look more interesting, you can combine this printing style with digital or flat printing.

3. Foil Stamping

The process of foil stamping is quite similar to letterpress. Metal plates are pressed down on paper to leave an impression of foil onto the paper. As a result, the pressed or stamped part of the wedding invitation will look shiny and glossy as well as smooth, giving it an expensive impression.

4. Spot Color

Spot color uses twelve primary colors compared to the basic digital printing that only uses four of cyan, magenta, black, and yellow. Because there are more primary colors involved, you can get a wider range of colors, including colors that are really vibrant, even neon and other colors out there that are difficult to obtain using the four color processing.

5. Laser Cut

You can try to make it even more interesting even without using inks. Laser cutting allows you to trim off any part of the wedding invitation that you want, and you can be really creative with it. For example, you can carve off the name of the bride and groom so that it has a unique look that can’t be obtained with any kind of ink or printing.
