On the other hand, if your unique wedding invitations are of a particularly unusual design, chosen to reflect your own personal style as well as the style of your wedding, your guests may know they can expect something nontraditional.
Thermography. Thermographed wedding invitations are an affordable alternative to an engraved invitation. Thermography creates the illusion of raised text (like engraving) through a printing process that heats the ink and resin chemical in a combination causing the printed text to appear raised while the paper beneath it looks smooth. The end result has a very elegant look and works very well for semi_formal weddings. Note: Plan on ordering these invitations at least six weeks in advance.
