When it comes to inviting friends and family to parties and celebrations, you want the invitation to be a beautiful representation of your event. One way to do that is by choosing a custom invitation.

If you are considering a custom design, it is important to work out the budget for the project. It is also important to consider the cost of paper, ink and any embellishments you might be considering.

A few popular printing options include foil stamping and embossing. Foil stamping involves pressing a thin layer of metallic material onto the paper, which adds a luxurious touch and is particularly stunning on dark or colored papers. Embossing is the process of etching the invitation into the surface of the paper, leaving an impression that looks like raised lettering. Embossing can be done on the whole invitation or in just a small section.

Digital printing (also known as flat printing) allows for an incredible amount of flexibility design-wise, and is perfect for watercolors, photographs, typography and more. This method of printing is also the most economical option, as there are no limits to how many colors can be printed. If you have a more complex design in mind, however, that is going to require a lot of work on the designer’s part, it will certainly increase the overall price. Etemply
