Here’s a walk through the process of printing the letterpress invitation suite for Kate and David’s summer wedding in Paris…
The picture above shows the magnesium plate for the scrollwork. And below is the black-and-white proof I used while setting up the job on the press and checking measurements and alignment.
The invitations go through the press for the first time – scrollwork in soft grey.
Next, the invitation text in mint-green ink. A second magnesium plate, new makeready, and another trip through the press.
While the mint ink was still on the press I set up and printed the green scrollwork for the response cards.
I printed grey text on the response cards…
…and more grey for the outer envelopes. In the picture below, I’m using my trusty AlignMate to make sure the return address is straight.
And in case you forgot what the end product looks like….
The end! Much happiness.
