Paper Options

Digital Printing

100% Cotton, 118lb cover weight (Savoy)

  • Available in bright white or natural white

This paper has a smooth uncoated texture that is soft and supple. There’s no gloss or sheen with this paper. Looks great with watercolor designs, and is also the classic choice for almost any invitation style.  Also available in double-thick (gorgeous!).

Eggshell, 120lb cover weight

A close match to cotton, although slightly more rigid and smoother.  Has a slightly more pronounced texture on the front side.  Great for full-color designs or photos – produces vibrant colors and sharp images.  Also available in double-thick.

Pearl Shimmer, 105lb cover weight

This paper has a lovely subtle shimmer to it.  Colors are vibrant, and it works well with most designs.  Also available in double-thick.

 

Letterpress Printing

100% Cotton, 110lb cover weight (Crane’s Lettra)

  • Available in bright white or pearl (natural) white

This paper has a smooth uncoated texture that is very soft and supple. There’s no gloss or sheen with this paper. Leave a beautiful letterpress impression, and is the classic choice for almost any invitation style.  Also available in luxurious double-thick.

100% Cotton, 118lb cover weight (Strathmore Impress)

  • Available in Bright White, Light Gray, and Light Pink

This cotton holds full color a bit better than Lettra and is a great option for combining digital and letterpress, or digital and foil printing.  Has a slightly more pronounced texture on the front side.  Also available in double-thick.

Colorplan colors

The widest variety of colors and paper weights is available in Colorplan’s paper line.  The paper is completely smooth and fairly rigid.  I recommend using this option when choosing a dark color paper to pair with foil printing.
