STANDARD PRINTING

FLAT PRINTING (DIGITAL) 4 color process using Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black ink; can handle any number of colors or amount of coverage photo printing; most cost effective and fastest turn-around time. **Pictured Below.
TURN AROUND TIME:
3-5 DAYS without UPGRADES
10-14 DAYS with PREMIUM or DELUXE UPGRADES

UPGRADED PRINTING

THERMOGRAPHY (RAISED INK) Offset process, ink is applied to the page using a plate/roller and a powder is dusted on top of the ink; sent through a high heat “oven” to produce a raised effect. Mimics engraving-ink is somewhat translucent; best used for darker colors (ex. light pink on ivory paper is very hard to see) 1-2 colors is most cost effective. Adds elegance without a high cost. Looks like flat printing but has a raised effect.
TURN AROUND TIME: 10-14 DAYS

HOT/FOIL STAMPING Very similar to letterpress; instead of ink applied to a plate, an opaque “foil” is stamped onto the page; very little impression on the front/back of page; works well for contrasting colors (black paper with white stamping, etc) and tone on tone colors (black paper with black stamping)works very well with metallic colors; can add either elegance or contemporary style depending on design and color combination
**Showcased below with letterpress.
TURN AROUND TIME: 10-14 DAYS

LETTERPRESS (PRESSED) Offset process using metal plates; ink is rubbed on plates and pressed into cotton paper; impression made on the back of the page; excellent for fine details and works best with 100% cotton paper saturation may slightly vary from piece to piece; adding classic elegance or vintage style depending on design.
**Showcased below with foil stamping
TURN AROUND TIME: 21-28 DAYS
