Digital Printing uses a digital printing press to produce a printed piece. This book printing method is great for text but images will not be as sharp as the lithograph press. On the positive side, digital printing is less expensive, is variable, and additional print runs are easy and convenient.

Invitations are used to ask the reader to attend a specified event or activity. There are two methods used in printing custom invitations, as described below:

Thermography uses a printing plate made of a thin flexible metal or plastic sheet.  Not getting into too much detail, three drums cylinders are used to drive out the printed images in mass quantity, such as for birthday or party invitations. It is much less expensive than engraving.

Engraving is a more traditional and formal method and is mostly used for special wedding invitations. This process involves etching the type into heavy cotton paper and is generally more expensive.

Whichever type of printing method you choose, it should match the degree of formality of your event. Engraved invitations are usually sent with small pieces of tissue separating the enclosures to keep slow-drying inks of the time from smudging. Today, tissue inserts remain a lovely tradition that enhances the rich, elegant look of the invitation.
