If you want your guests to feel like they’re invited to a special event (or party) rather than just another day of their lives, consider the value of custom invitations. Not only are they a visual representation of the event’s theme, but they communicate important information to your guests about what to expect. For example, a color palette that calls to mind the ambiance of your venue can clue your guests in on how casual or formal the celebration will be. A design that includes a fun saying can hint at an upbeat tone, and even something as small as the envelope liner can convey the tone of your big day.
Customization and creativity give your invitations a personalized feel that can’t be replicated with store bought designs. This translates to a more intimate feel for your guests that makes them excited about attending your event.
When it comes to printing, the options are endless, from a simple digital print to an intricate letterpress process. Choosing the right one for you will depend on your vision and budget.
Digital printing is an incredibly versatile option and works well for most designs, including watercolors, photographs, typography, and detailed illustrations. The cost of digital printing is also lower than other printing methods since only the design gets printed, not large swatches of ink and paper.
Letterpress is a historical printing technique that uses inked metal or polymer plates to leave an impression on the paper, which can add to the charm of your invites. These types of invitations are typically more expensive than digital prints due to the amount of labor that goes into creating them. Etemply
