A nice embossing of a monogram or other design element can add a luxurious and elegant touch to a wedding invitation. A few ideas to consider would be to get a get blind embossing which means no finishing is applied to the embossed area – creating a minimalist design. Then there is also foil printing – this is when a glossy, metallic (gold, silver, etc), or matte foil layer is applied to the embossed area. Below are a few other ideas to consider when printing your wedding invitations.

The Benefits of Going The DIY Homemade Route
Something that you could do is to have a hand crank embosser made up with a monogram, calla lily flowers, seashells, damask designs, or other graphics. You can then have the wedding invitations printed out at a printer and save money by embossing them at home. But it doesn’t have to stop there – this embosser can also be used to create personalized, handmade, and cheap embossed wedding napkins, paper stationary, place settings, thank you cards, or anything else really.

The Opposite: Debossing
Debossing is an alternative printing method. Instead of having a raised image when you get embossing done, debossing indents the image into the card:
