Thermography. This type of wedding invitation is relatively inexpensive, popular and easy to find. This type of invitation can be used for a casual wedding. Thermography creates the illusion of raised text through a printing process that heats the ink and resin chemical in a combination that causes the printed text to appear raised while the paper beneath it looks smooth. Because of the heating process involved in creating this type of invitation, the proper combination of paper and ink must be used.
Choose invitations that actually look inviting. Thick, high quality paper with bright colors or a unique design that makes the envelope stand out from other mail that may arrive on the same day. Your invitations should excite interest even before they are opened, and if you have chosen your design well, they should evoke reminders of the happy couple as well!
