I was wondering if this is a must for the invites, does the letters have to raised up in some type or form for it to look nice. Has anyone printed their invites on paper or is everyong doing some type of embossing or engraving to the invites?

We printed on vellum from our own printer.

Nope, it’s completely unnecessary and optional! Invitations come in MANY forms–engraved, letter pressed, digitally printed–and there’s no right or wrong way, just what’s right for YOU! There are tons of flat printed invitations that are GORGEOUS.

Many people choose to go with flat printing for their invitations. Embossing/engraving/letterpress/thermography is definitely more of a luxury than a necessity. I was dead-set on a raised-letter feel for our invitations just because I’m a very sensory, aesthetic person and I love the feeling of really FEELING an invitation, so we went with thermography. It’s a lot cheaper than letterpress but you still get the raised letter, which was important to me – I just really wanted them to feel like something special. If you want to do flat printing, go for it.

Nope. Printing them ourselves. I’ve thrown most wedding invites in the trash so I am keeping that thought in my head. I don’t want to waste money on things that go into the trash.
