PRINTING METHODS

We are proud to work closely with the best Australian printing partners helping our designs come to life at the highest quality. 

We offer 4 different printing methods - Digital Colour, White Ink, Letterpress and Foiling.

Here is a little more info about each one.

1/ digital colour

$
MINIMUM ORDER: 10 PIECES

The most cost effective print option.  The colours are beautifully rich, vibrant and saturated.  Digital printing can be done on any stock thickness.  For full colour designs, we recommend white/ivory coloured stock to provide a nice blank canvas for your colours to stand out. Black ink will suit almost any lighter coloured paper stock.

3/ letterpress

$$$
MINIMUM ORDER: 50 PIECES

Letterpress is a more complex printing method that involves pressing your design into a thick card stock (with or without ink) to give a luxurious, soft, tactile, debossed effect. For the best effect, a thicker stock (600gsm+) is recommended, the thicker the stock the deeper the impression will be. This also looks amazing on lighter coloured stocks. The print process requires a metal template so variable data is not possible.

2/ white ink printing

$-$$
MINIMUM ORDER: 10 PIECES

White ink printing is where we print white ink directly onto coloured card stock.  White ink printing can be done on any stock thickness. This print method suits rich, dark coloured paper like black, grey or Kraft brown to maximise the contrast.

4/ foil press

$$$
MINIMUM ORDER: 50 PIECES

With this print method, your design is pressed into the paper with metallic foil using a hot plate. The result is a glamorous shimmer with a slight impression. Foil looks great on most coloured stock.  Foil colours include gold, matt gold, silver, matt silver, copper and rose gold.
