Printing Style
Thermography - (raised printing) a rubberized powder is applied to fresh wet ink, excess powder is dusted off and paper is heated fusing the powder into a raised print.
Flat Printing - ink applied to paper with by a printing plate.
Engraving - lettering is etched into a metal plate and the recesses of the lettering are filled with ink, the paper is then pressed in between the inked plate on the front and a mirror image of this plate from the back. This presses the paper into the inked recesses forming raised ink portions of the paper. Engraved invitations found in Sand Scripts' Online Invitation Catalog are printed on 100% cotton watermarked papers.
Invitations found in Sand Scripts' Online Invitation Catalog will be printed using thermography (raised lettering) on most invitations if not stated otherwise. In most cases, envelopes will be flat printed as sometimes there is residue powder and it concerns people to have a "powder-like" substance on their postal envelopes and also some of that powder and/or heat from the thermography may effect the sealing properties of some envelopes. If flat printing on all or some of the pieces (same charge) is desired, it must be expressed upon ordering. Engraving is available for most invitations for approximately an additional $65.00/100 stationery pieces. Inquire for a quote.

Color Matching
For over 30 years, PANTONE Color Systems have enabled designers and manufacturers worldwide to specify and communicate accurate color. Today, PANTONE is the recognized leader in color communication for the graphic arts, apparel, home furnishings, beauty and industrial design communities. PANTONE provides color trend direction for the vast majority of consumer products ranging from fashion to home. If a PMS or PANTONE number is provided for your order, please be sure to check with a PANTONE swatch book so you are aware of the color that will be printed. Some surfaces will affect the true color of the printing and we will match as closely as possible when a PMS color is designated. Remember monitors/printers will make colors appear different than actual. Sand Scripts is not responsible for color matching or color calibration of how colors may appear to you. Best advise is that you order a sample prior to press and consult with a PANTONE book when color is of utmost importance.
