Offset printing is a style of flat printing directly onto the surface of the paper, no specialized plates or inking are involved. Text and images are flush with the paper and do not leave an impression.
What makes our offset printing “fine art?” - In short, the caliber of the printers we use and the high quality of the paper we offer. We only use professional machines designed to produce archival quality prints.
Letterpress is a form of relief printing where an inked, raised printing plate makes contact with paper using enough force to leave an impression, creating a soft and pillowy look. When you run your fingertips over the print, you can feel the texture created by the printing.
All letterpress inks are mixed by hand and printed one at a time, individualized plates are made for every order and a real person lines up the design by hand, calibrates the press and oversees every step of the printing process. Letterpress is an artisanal form of printing with a high-end, timeless feel.
Foil stamping is similar to letterpress, but instead of using ink, sheets of shiny foil are pressed into the paper using heat and pressure. There is slightly less impression, but the result is a design that shimmers and shines.
Colours may look different in real life as different screens may alter graphics and colours.
We offer 5 lovely foil options to personalize you design with:
Embossing is when you raise a logo or other image to create a 3D graphic. This raised design is achieved by pushing a metal die into paper, card stock (or other chosen material) from underneath. The raised area can then have ink or foil applied to it for added effect or it can be left unprinted or unfoiled (i.e. known as a blind emboss).
Debossing is the opposite of embossing as you are creating an indent in the material you are using. A metal die is stamped onto the front of the material you are using causing depressions that leave a (debossed) imprint of the image on your paper, card stock (or other chosen material). You can choose to leave the debossing as it is (i.e. known as a blind deboss) or you can fill the indentation with ink.
Vellum, it may be referred to as tracing paper, see-through paper, transparent paper and translucent paper.
