What is Digital Printing?
Digital printing (also known as “flat printing”) uses a high-resolution printer to create a smooth image. Like a print from your home printer, the ink is neither raised nor indented, except in this case we’re using a high-quality printer for crisp, smudge proof text and imagery that you won’t get with an ordinary desktop printer.
Digitally printed invitations and stationery can contain an unlimited amount of colors, so this process is great for vintage florals and ombre backgrounds. It’s the most cost-effective of our printing processes, making it a popular choice for weddings and casual events alike.
• Smooth ink, not raised or indented
• Can be printed on a smooth or lightly textured, matte or metallic paper
It’s great for:
• Casual and whimsical weddings
• Birthdays, bridal showers and other parties
• Photo save the dates
• Designs that incorporate an array of colors
It’s often combined with:
• Layered paper
• Foil stamped details
“Another way to jazz up a digitally printed card is to add backing layers. This route is cost effective without sacrificing style.”
Baby and Bridal Showers
Digital printing is one of our top choices for baby and bridal shower invitations. We had the pleasure of secretly working with Samantha's mom to create the perfect surprise bridal shower invitation… and then a year later, the perfect baby shower invitation!
Photo Save the Dates
Since photos require flat printing, we also use this method to create photo save the dates and thank you notes. If you’re looking for a little more flair, we love combining it with foil like these gorgeous save the dates. The gold foil is even prettier in person!
A Layered Look
Another way to jazz up a digitally printed card is to add backing layers. This will both frame your invitation and add extra weight giving you a more substantial card. This route is cost effective without sacrificing style.
From Sundress to Gown
Okay one more for good measure. How beautiful is this blush rose invitation? We love how the gold foil adds another layer of sophistication to this design. The gold details take it from afternoon garden party to formal evening celebration.
