All of our invitations and stationery at One Bella Design are printed using the following methods.
Most of our wedding invitations are printed using Thermography. This method produces raised printing similar in appearance to engraving. In thermography, a special powder is added to an offset printed piece, heated then the mixture dries to form a raised image.
We use a traditional 2-color “offset” printing press in which a plate makes an inked impression on a cylinder, transferring the image on to the paper. This classic process uses ink from a can, rather than building colors using CMYK (like your printer at home). Offset printing is flat and results in a crisp and pure image. It is a timeless print method, and becomes more cost effective with larger quantities as the costs are fixed.
Digital printing is a more cost-effective method of printing your invitations.
Digital - In-House
One Bella Design prints some of our imprintable invitations and wedding day accessories in-house: menus, place cards, table cards, envelopes, and occasionally programs are printed using this method.
If your invitation is printed using thermography or digital print, we will do our very best to match the color of the invitations. Because our in-house printers are different from the high-end printers we use to print thermography, digital and offset the color will alter slightly.
