Yes, thermography is raised! It will have a slightly glossy feel.

Thermography and engraving will both achieve a raised font, with thermography being the more affordable option. FWIW, I’ve ordered from WPD 3 times (photo rehearsal dinner invites, photo thank you cards, and photo new years cards) and have been very satisfied with the final product and service I received.

I love the WPD thermography! I just took some pics of my samples for another thread, and I’m not sure if you can actually see the raised font there, but it looks really elegant. I think the pricing is reasonable. You can order 5 samples for free from WPD so try them out! I’d be happy to send you one of my samples if you’d like too, but WPD was quick at shipping the samples!

Personally, I would look into a printer that does gold foil stamping.  I had my wedding invitations letterpressed and gold foil stamped by Jeronimo’s Lithocraft.  The lettering is so shiny and delicate looking.  This style of printing is indented like letterpressed, not raised like thermography.  The cost of getting them gold foil stamped was pretty reasonable.

@Cadence:  It’s not possible for you to DIY Thermography.  It requires a large professional printer.

Here are some examples of gold foil printing:

Just wanted to say you are not alone in not getting your invitations yet. Theknot.com says to send them out at the three month mark so you have one month to order, address and send them out. That’s not terrible. Not great, but not terrible.
