I meet with the owner of a local printing company yesterday. It looks as if they are going to be able to help me with some of my printing needs. However, they no longer offer letterpress and thermography, which are the two printing options I am looking to provide. The majority of their printing is done on a high quality digital printer, which will be great for flat printing and invitations with photos. The owner was nice enough to give me a tour of the printing press room. He showed me how all of the mass production printers work, including his old letterpress machine. I had no idea how complicated printing letterpress is (no wonder it’s so expensive). Basically the text for the invitation is mounted letter by letter onto a die and then the machine presses the die against the paper with extreme force, thus the name “Letterpress”. I will most likely use him for all my flat printing; he said he would give me a deal if I continue to use him for the long run. No matter what business you are in, it is essential to build and foster relationships with people that you are doing business with. It not only helps you to cut costs but it leads to other business opportunities and much needed resources.
“Designer Invitations for Your Fashionable Life”What's in a Name? Papier (pronounced "Pap - Ear") is German for "Paper" and represents my maternal family roots. I approach the creation of my invitations in the same manner that a fashion designer designs a couture dress. Fashion designers produce their work in a fashion house; I'm an invitationeer and my custom creations are designed in the House of Papier. Welcome to my blog, ~Missy
