We know what a challenge address printing can be. Calligraphy isn’t right for every design, budget or timeline. And printing envelopes on the average home/office printer can be a real struggle. That’s why we made it a priority to invest in equipment that would give you a high-quality and reliable option for guest addressing.
Our new address printer can print full-color artwork on most light-colored envelopes with any flap shape. You can choose square flap, traditional pointed flap, or deep “Euro” flap envelopes.
The return address can be printed with letterpress printing, foil stamping or digitally-printed along with the guest’s addresses.
It’s a great machine that prints with excellent detail and crisp lines, but it also prints soft details like watercolor artwork nicely. We used it to print the example image above as a test to show you the capabilities. Please contact us and we will be glad to mail you a real printed sample to review.
For maximum control over the appearance of the guest addresses, you can design each address on its own page of an Illustrator or Indesign document. This way, you can make sure long names and short names are correctly sized for the envelope.
We can also print from a guest list spreadsheet. This would be good if you wanted a simple straightforward address format that leaves plenty of room for long and short names alike.
This is a great way to simplify the addressing and take one more thing off your plate. It’s a great solution for white envelopes and light colors. Sadly, it’s not a good option for dark-colored envelopes like our favorite deep navy colors. We definitely want to invest in a white ink addressing printer as soon as we can.
If you have any questions about this process, we would be glad to help. Please call, e-mail, or fill out the inquiry form on our contact or quote request page.
