The metallic gold is shown to maximum advantage by our selection of deep shades of coloured card from the Colorplan range, which together provide a strong contrast and create a striking combination with the burnished gold ink. This is further enhanced by the weight of card that we have chosen, which, at 540gsm, has both good bulk and stiffness as well as a delightful loose texture.
Due in no small part to the bulk of the card, we are able to cut the edges of the card and then gild them to create gilt bevel edges.
The package is completed by a high quality white envelope which although already a substantial 170gsm, which are lined in the same shade of paper as the invitation card.
Engraving uses a traditionally etched copper plate. The paper is then pressed or die stamped into the copper plate thus leaving the ink raised to the touch. Due to the pressing of the ink into the card, you will find that the reverse of the card has an indentation where the ink has been stamped.
The Copper plate can be held with us for future use or we can send it to you with your order.
