embellishments duplexing

Traditional, Elegant and Luxe Board duplexing shown on Aquamarine stock

Duplexing is available on any of our colored papers shown on pages 5.8-5.12.1 and we offer three different thicknesses— Traditional, Elegant and Luxe Board. Note that the thickness may vary from paper to paper, which means that the final product may vary slightly depending on paper chosen. For this same reason, we are only able to ply two/three sheets of the same stock. We cannot duplex two different stocks together. We recommend you check with your local post office before purchasing postage. Some of these options may not meet the USPS’s requirements for a letter and may need to be mailed as a package.

Our Elegant duplexing option is made of three sheets of our colored papers, plied together.

l u x e b oa r d du pl e x i ng

Our Luxe Board duplexing option is made of two outer sheets of our colored papers, plied together with a 30 point board in-between them to create a very thick card. We do recommend that you consider painting the edges of the card when selecting our Luxe Board duplexing option. As shown above, the 30 point board in the middle layer will show at the edge of the card.

customization tips duplexing

Duplex colored papers

Make a colored card stock thick and luxurious by adding one of our three duplexing options. Any of our papers that are available as a Backer Card (BC), can be duplexed.

Be bold with opaque inks

Our opaque ink palette is ideal for getting a bold color on duplexed paper. What about Saffron ink on Traditional duplexing of French Roast?

Be subtle with non-opaque inks

Not interested in an opaque ink? Our other inks are transparent and are perfect for getting a beautiful tonal effect if you are feeling adventurous. Try Apricot on Warmed White paper for a soft, romantic look. Please note that for dark papers, we recommend opaque inks or foil.

Add color and shine

Pairing duplexing with foil is an excellent option if you want to add a pop of color or shine to your invite, while maintaining a luxe feel.

Sprinkle in more color

Many of the papers available for duplexing are also available for envelopes or liners. Mix it up and use a colored reply envelope that coordinates with your duplexed invitation paper.

Make an impact at the reception

Why not print your invitation suite on Savoy, and save the duplexing to wow your guests at the event? Duplexing your menus or programs can be a great way to add a pop of color to your big day.

painted edges

Add color with painted edges

Make your card pop by adding edging in one of our 56 available colors! You can edge one card in your suite to make it stand out, or edge all of the cards for a more colorful impact.

Want a custom edging color?

If our edge painting palette doesn’t include the exact shade you are looking for, you can order a custom Pantone color. See page 6.1 in the “Additional Press Charges” section of our embellishment pricing sheet for more details.

Best paper stock for painted edges

When selecting painted edges we suggest that you use our Premium Letterpress Paper in the 236 lb. weight or one of our Duplexed stocks for the biggest impact.

Painted edges take time

Please note that when you select painted edges, your production time is 15 business days from your proof approval.

Multiple colors

Want to edge more than one piece in your suite? Try using different colors on each piece. Keep it tonal by using colors in the same family, like Pool and Seafoam, or use it as a way to incorporate more colors, like Kelly and Shell.

Handle with care

When you order a suite with painted edges we include a custom cut vellum sheet for each edged piece. We suggest that you insert the vellum on top of each edged piece to keep the color from transferring to other pieces in your suite. 30


embellishments

customization tips foil palette

Make it shine

Make your suite shine by adding one of our 16 foil colors! Use one of our existing foil dies as-is, or one of our suggested alternate uses, for no additional foil die fee!

Add color and shine

Pairing duplexing with foil is an excellent option if you want to add a pop of color or shine to your invite, while still getting that luxe feel.

Create a custom foil die

Don’t be limited by the existing foil dies, anything can be foiled! For just $80-$150 per die (depending on size), you can make anything and everything shine!

No overlapping

Please note that foil cannot overlap ink or a score. No need to worry though, our designers are skilled at avoiding this while still achieving your vision.

Print everything in foil

Love foil and want to use it on everything? Most of the suites in our album show foil paired with letterpress, but remember, everything can be customized! See our pricing section for details on suites printed in 100% foil.

Foil takes time

Please note that when you select a suite with foil stamping your production time is 15 business days from proof approval.

die-cut cards & tags

Don’t be a square

Add interest to your suite by using one of our many existing die-cut shapes. Many are sized to fit in standard envelopes, while others make great accessory cards or favor tags.

Create a custom die-cut shape

Don’t be limited by the existing die-cut shapes, we can create a new shape just for you! Since prices vary based on size, please contact us for a quote.

Seal your suite with a die-cut tag

Add one of our small die-cut tags to the outside of your pocket folder or paper wrap. It’s the perfect finishing touch.

web_emb1_072012 (5.2.0 & 5.3.0 of dl)

Skipping the inner envelope?

Why not use one of our small die-cut tags tied around each suite with your guests’ names written on them? It’s a modern twist to the inner envelope.

Don’t forget about your reception

Our die-cut tags make great place cards as well as favor tags. With custom inks and motifs the options are endless!

In a hurry?

Standard rush charges are applicable for any orders that are letterpress printing only and do not include embellishments and upgrades. If you would like to rush an order with embellishments and/or upgrades please contact us to determine timing and feasibility. 31
