The Importance of High-Quality Paper in Letterpress Printing

Elevating Your Wedding with Letterpress Invitations and High-Quality Paper

At Deciduous Press, we understand that the choice of paper is vital in creating stunning letterpress prints, particularly for wedding stationery. Letterpress printing, an art form admired for its tactile and visual appeal, relies heavily on high-quality paper to enhance the final product's look and feel. The right paper not only showcases the intricate details of the design but also adds a luxurious touch that leaves a lasting impression.

Different Types of Paper Used in Letterpress

We specialise in using 100% cotton paper, available in pure White and Soft White, and in two weights: 300gsm and 600gsm. This paper is perfect for achieving the deep impressions that letterpress printing is known for, providing a tactile and visual elegance.

Cotton paper is ideal for letterpress printing due to its exceptional softness and durability, which allow for deep, crisp impressions that highlight the tactile nature of the print. Its high-quality, luxurious feel enhances the visual and physical appeal of the printed pieces, making it perfect for special occasions like wedding stationery. Additionally, cotton paper is more environmentally friendly and sustainable compared to wood-pulp paper, aligning with eco-conscious values.

How Paper Quality Affects the Overall Look and Feel

High-quality paper not only enhances the visual appeal but also improves the tactile experience. The thickness and softness of cotton paper ensure a smooth, deep impression, making your designs stand out. The weight of the paper adds to the durability and premium feel, ensuring your stationery looks and feels exceptional.

Tips for Selecting the Right Paper for Your Wedding Stationery

Consider the Impression Depth

For a deeper impression, our 600gsm paper is ideal, offering a pronounced and luxurious texture.

Choose the Right Shade

Depending on your wedding theme, select between our pure White for a bright, clean look or Soft White for a warmer tone.

Mix and Match Weights

Use 600gsm for the main invitation and 300gsm for supplementary pieces like RSVP cards, balancing elegance and practicality.
