I used thermography and the invitations are really beautiful.  I’m getting compliments on them from everyone.

Chela — can you share your process or what company you used? or even photos!?!? 🙂

We are going with thermography because I would like the look and texture of raised lettering without the pricetag that engraving or letterpress brings.  We found some invitations at invitationconsultants.com that use thermography as the printing method, and they are very affordable.

I’m sure if you call around you can find a place in your area that does it.  Good luck!!

I would have to scan them….

I did Checkerboard Bijou invites without the rhinestone  http://www.einvite.com/select/zoom_product_image.asp?EnsembleCode=MOA-TJC-QENS&DisplayPosition=1&Cobrand=OutVite&Site=eInvite&vk=1777211146

Standard invitation envelope (not french flap) with English Garden Liner http://www.invitationlane.com/checkerboard-liners.html

The invitation when placed in the envelope with the inserts there was a lot of white so printed inserts with hotel information on lavendar cardstock that matched the liner. 

Again I will try to scan the invite tomorrow at work.

Thermography is great! It’s a budget-friendly way to save money on printing invitations. They can be beautiful too! The only thing that I would suggest is to shop around for a good thermographer — go in and check out their sample work and ….gently, but discreetly…. scratch over tiny parts of the artwork to see how the quality is. If the ink on the invitation or sample scratches off, go somewhere else!

Thermography and letterpress are both offered by http://www.CraftMasterInvitations.com

My bestfriend had their samples shipped and she showed them to me. Thermograph print had raised wordings while letterpress had wordings embedded. Both were very nice and elegant.
