The most expensive and luxurious style of printing, the letters are raised in the front (and dented at the back). It works by pressing an etched plate at the back of the invite

Here, the text is imprinted onto the page. It has a luxurious, vintage-like feel, but it has a lower price tag as compared to engraving.

This printed method looks formal, and also resembles the effect from engraving. The only difference? This method will have your text and images look slightly shinier. Themography also costs less than engraving.

These are the processes of creating either raised (embossing) or dented (debossing) images and designs.

Digital printing
If you’re having a casual wedding, or aren’t fussed about how your invites look like, digital printing, where you use laser or inkjet printers, is perfect.

Foil stamping
A sheet of metallic paper is placed on top and stamped or embossed.

Screen printing
If you want the hand painted effect without paying a high price for it, screen printing, where ink is printed through a screen mesh, is an alternative.
