Fine Printing: Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Letterpress wedding invitations are considered one of the most authentic, timeless printing traditions for weddings, sought out for their distinctive, handcrafted look. The high level of craftsmanship and quality of plush cotton paper evident in this specialized printing technique make it the preference for many couples.

letterpress-wedding-invitationWedding Invitation ‘Meadow’ shown letterpress printed in Black.

The Process

Letterpress begins by creating customized polymer plates with the text and graphics of a specific design.

letterpress-printing

letterpress-printing

letterpress-printingPolymer plate used for ‘Brocade Border’ and close-ups of a Heidelberg press.

Once the custom-made polymer plates are ready, paper is hand-fed carefully into the press, and intense pressure rolls ink onto the plates, one color at a time. The resulting image is pressed into the paper, giving text and design elements a visible, tactile impression, which varies depending on the thickness of the paper.

The Look

The authentic, handcrafted look of letterpress is due in part to the subtle uneven characteristic of the ink pressing onto the paper. Letterpress produces vintage-quality color depth and richness, sometimes to dramatic effect, especially on plush, thick cotton papers.

 letterpress-wedding-invitationWedding Invitation ‘Side by Side’ letterpress printed in Salmon and Oatmeal on plush double-play cotton paper.

It performs notably well for printing clear color inks on light color papers for an elegant, tone-on-tone look …

More Inspiration

Other beautiful ways to use letterpress include using it for pattern or in conjunction with another printing technique …

letterpress-wedding-invitationsWedding Invitation ‘Kiss the Bride’ in two-color letterpress, one for all-over pattern the second color for text.

letterpress-response-cardResponse Card from ‘Antoinette’ features both Foil Stamping in Rose Gold and Letterpress in Smoke.

Letterpress is a beautiful printing process to carry throughout your entire wedding invitation suite on other stationery pieces, such as place cards, table number cards, menus, and more.

Choose the Best Printing for Your Wedding Invitations

Depending on your choice of card size and printing process (and paper too!), wedding invitations vary in cost. Working directly with a knowledgeable Kleinfeld Paper retail partner who’s familiar with our extensive selection of print capabilities and embellishments is the best way to create a look you love at a price you can afford!

5 Ideas for Wedding Program Booklets

wedding-programsCouples love the wedding program booklet because it’s a very practical way to have more room to share things above and beyond the typical order of events and wedding party list. With a cover making a style statement all its own and extra inside pages, you can easily personalize with details that matter most to you (and keep guests occupied before your ceremony begins).

Here are some helpful ideas about what to print inside wedding program booklets …

1 || Your Backstory

Tell about how you met and fun facts about the two of you …

2 ||  Personalize with a photo and a thematic touch …

wedding-program-bookletsWedding program insert from the ‘Regatta’ wedding invitation suite.

3 || Express yourselves with a quote …

4 || Memorialize loved ones  …

wedding-ceremony-program-bookletWedding program insert from the ‘Unity’ wedding invitation suite.

5 || Give thanks  …

wedding-program-bookletsWedding program insert from the ‘Fly With Me’ wedding invitation suite.

Other good ideas to consider:

  • Explain special rituals, traditions, or unusual customs that may not be familiar to all guests to provide extra insight about unique moments during your ceremony.
  • Add wedding party bios for a little background about your ceremony participants, including how each is connected to you.

Kleinfeld Paper wedding programs are designed as an integral component of fully-coordinated wedding invitation suites. Booklet-style programs are available exclusively through Kleinfeld Paper retail partners.
