Letterpress Wedding Invitations
Letterpress is the ultimate in wedding stationery! Letterpress invitations are made on thick, luxurious cotton cardstock, with the text stamped deep into the cotton, creating a tactile piece which just emanates class and grandeur.

We’re happy to announce that Fine Invitations now offers this prestigious service. The style of letterpress aligns perfectly with our motto: simple, classic, elegant! You can have a single colour or add interest with a second colour or texture with a “blind” impression (no colour). Just be aware that each different letterpress run is done separately.
If you want a very heavy, thick card, 600gsm is the usual option. Letterpress sinks deep into the card!
A slightly lighter but still very sturdy alternative is 450gsm. Accessory cards can either be the same thickness or 300gsm, which is more lightweight.
One limitation with the thick cardstock used for letterpress invitations is that you can’t print full-colour graphics as well. If you would like coloured graphics too, you’d usually choose 300-350gsm matching card.
In the example on the left you can see a graphic which has first been digitally printed on 300gsm cotton card, then the text has been letterpressed afterwards. The card is thinner but it allows for colour to be introduced.
Letterpress wedding stationery is super-luxurious and really makes a statement. There is nothing else quite like it! Letterpress printing is a specialist process which requires precision and expertise. It takes on average 10 business days longer than our in-house range and (depending on how much you want to spend) is best for orders of at least 60 or 70 letterpress invitations, due to set-up costs.
