Letterpress Wedding Invitations with Blind Impression

Blind Hit Letterpress Printing

Everyone loves the look of letterpress. It is really the deep impressions that people tend to fall in love with. When wording and graphics are impressed into 100% cotton paper, it is hard to resist the urge to upgrade your flat-printed stationery!

We especially love the look of letterpress that doesn’t use ink when making its impressions! This technique is called “blind impression,” and it creates some really stunning effects.

Eva’s geometric columns look amazing printed without ink. Just take a look at the difference between the version with blind impression and the invitation printed with black ink only:

One of our couples used blind impression for their ampersand on their Driftwood wedding invitation, but used ink for their reception card:

Which do you prefer: ink or no ink?
