Wedding Paper Guide

There are a lot of options when it comes to wedding paper. If you are feeling overwhelmed or don't know where to being, take a peek at some of the option breakdowns below and schedule a call with me. I'm happy to walk through everything with you!

In the meantime, if you are curious about paper, ink and printing method choices, check out some helpful information below. 
 

PRINTING METHODS

DIGITAL PRINTING

Sometimes referred to as Flat Printing, Digital prints smoothly to the paper, with no raised or indented impression. If you run your fingers over it, you'll only feel the slight texture of the paper.

Production Time: 3 Weeks

THERMOGRAPHY
PRINTING

A printing method where ink is printed on the paper then dipped in a powder. After powder is administered to paper, it is run through a high heated machine to create a raised ink. When you run your fingers over thermography printed invitations, you will feel raised lettering.

Production Time: 5 Weeks

LETTERPRESS

A plate of your design is inked with rich matte ink, then pressed into cotton paper, leaving a beautiful, touchable impression. When touched, you can feel the indentation.

This print method is done in house with our own letterpress machine built in 1842.

PAPER COLOR

Piper and Finch offers White and Ivory paper choices. Our ivory is a true ivory color - it is not yellow. Both are exceptional choices. There is no difference when it comes to how the ink or foil will hold onto different paper colors.

Double ply paper is an excellent choice for any print method and is especially beautiful on letterpress invitations. 

Double ply paper is not offered for thermography print types or suite No. 11's Gate invitation.
