Grafton Wedding Invitations


This intricate design, with your initials in an elaborate frame, is letterpress printed in a plum ink colour onto a thick textured 700gsm white card and finished with tissue lined envelopes. 


The slight depression in the card brought about by the application of pressure during the letterpress printing technique provides a tactile quality to your Grafton wedding invitation that draws many admirers to the process. 


Colorplan boards are known for their bulk and softly textured loose surface which makes the Colorplan Pristine white card that we have used here a perfect partner for both letterpress and the gentle shade of plum ink used in this design. With a stylised floral ornament filling all four corners of the card there is enough room for not just your text but also a cartouche containing your intertwined initials so that all the elements in this design combine to create a gently romantic card with a slightly vintage feel to it.

Letterpress Print processes: 

In short, this printing process is similar to lithography in that films are used to transfer the graphics onto a block or plate. This plate is then pressed into the sheet as opposed to rolled. During the transfer of the ink into the sheet a slightly debossed impression will be created. The harder one presses the more the debossed area will be pronounced but pressure varies from one printer to another.
