One of the oldest and most elegant processes for printing. Engraving involves etching the text onto a copper plate. During the printing process, the plate is coated with ink and then compressed onto the paper, creating the printed text in a slightly raised impression and leaves a bruise on the back of the paper. With most of our vendors that offer engraving, the plate then belongs to the customer and will serve them for a lifetime of fine stationery usage. Engraved stationery is considered to be the epitome of good taste and elegance. Whenever your event is very formal and you want to convey a sense of elegance and impeccable taste, choose engraving. The process is relatively expensive but well worth the investment.
