There are four main printing techniques to choose between for your personal stationery;
Engraved print - considered the luxurious option, it is undoubtedtly the best quality and uses a traditional engraved copperplate to create a fine embossed finish.
Letterpress print - the oldest form of professional printing has made a resurgence in recent years and is often used on soft cotton papers and cards to create a debossed (sunken) finish
Thermography - another form of raised print, this is cheaper than engraving and has a slightly glossy finish, laser-proof thermography is also available for those wishing to use their writing paper through a laser printer.
Lithography - Litho printing is the cheapest of the techniques, this is basic flat printing, whilst still excellent quality, this is often used for higher quanities or for correspondence cards.
All writing papers and cards are supplied with high quality diamond flap envelopes in a matching material, we can add a coloured paper or tissue lining into these envelopes as an additional extra, this is really the finishing touch to a lovely range of personal stationery.
We are always happy to meet any special or unusual requirements ranging for example, from an engraved family crest, a foreign language or simply a more flamboyant paper or card.
