WEDDING STATIONERY PRINT OPTIONS

Luxury wedding stationery comes in all shapes and sizes! If you’re looking for personalised wedding stationery then you’re in the right place! LouPaper is a small creative studio specialising in designing custom wedding stationery, using modern calligraphy to suit different styles and colour palettes. I’m proud to work with some wonderful printers across the UK who bring my designs to life at the highest quality and who offer multiple different print finishes.


There’s a curated collection of designs on my website which can be fully customised to fit your style including the printing method, the ink colours, the paper type and colours, envelope colours and the wording. All of the designs are available in hot foil, digital foil and digital printing too! So that’s a great place to start to seek inspiration for your own wedding stationery. Time to explain a bit more around the different wedding stationery print options and paper options…


Print Options

Digital printing is perfect for designs with full colours because it ensures sharp, crisp and vibrant colour. There’s also a range of different card stocks available to suit the look you are going for. Here’s The Jenni wedding invitation which also includes a watercolour foliage design as an example.

If you prefer the look of providing a contrast against a coloured background then white ink looks wonderful paired with premium card stock. I love the grey and white paring in The Emilie Stationery Collection.

Paper Types

All printing is on 350gsm uncoated card as standard. As more and more couples require a sustainable approach to their big day, I’m proud to work with print suppliers who offer responsibly sourced and 100% recycled paper. One supplier has paper made out of by- products from citrus fruits and other raw materials saved from landfill.


I also offer handmade paper as an option. Handmade paper wedding invitations are crafted from recycled or reused raw materials such as plant fibres, corn, flax and coffee. This paper is more environmentally friendly as no trees are cut, energy wasted or toxic chemicals used in its manufacture. It also gives a wonderful rustic, tactile finish to each invitation as every sheet of paper is truly unique.


The Deckle Stationery Collection is all about natural materials, printed on handmade paper with hand torn deckled edges for a natural, honest aesthetic. This design also includes a hand drawn floral illustration.

Foil Wedding Invitations

Digital foil provides a gorgeous mirror finish, perfect for adding metallic elements to your stationery. A popular choice for designs using my hand lettered modern calligraphy, foil is available in a range of colours including gold, silver, rose gold and copper. A laminate can also be added on top for a super soft finish.


Foiling doesn’t just have to be for your wedding invitations. It can be incorporated across your full wedding stationery such as Save The Date cards, wedding menus, table signs and place names.


The copper foil in The Ella Stationery Collection looks so gorgeous paired with the dark green hand painted watercolour background.

Silver foil is a fab option because it so versatile and therefore can be combined with so many other colours. The Rachael wedding invitation uses silver foil for a sophisticated and chic look paired with grey and crisp white.

Hot Foil Wedding Invitations

Hot foil adds a level of luxury and shine to your stationery, by leaving an embossed impression on the card. So not only do you get the gorgeous metallic finish but a dreamy embossed effect.

As shown here on The Eloise Stationery Collection which uses rose gold foil. The hot foil technique also allows for thicker card to be used, so think duplexed boards for an additional luxe finish.

Gold Leaf Wedding Invitations

Gold Leaf is a stunning addition to wedding stationery. This design was created for a styled shoot where the stationery worked seamlessly with muted autumnal florals. More on that shoot here! Gold leaf accents were added to the hand made paper alongside hand drawn modern calligraphy in gold.

Letterpress Wedding Invitations

A technique that involves literally pressing your design into a thick card stock, letterpress gives a luxurious, pillowy, embossed effect. As shown on The Olive Stationery Collection, I love the effect it has combined with handmade paper and hand torn deckle edges too!

Vellum Wedding Invitations

Vellum is another option to consider for your wedding stationery. The beautiful translucent stock gives a delicate, soft feel to your wedding invitations. Foil can be printed on vellum instead of card or laid over coloured, painted or textured card backgrounds for an elegant, layered finish. As seen here on The Ali Stationery Collection, layered over a pale green watercolour background and with gold foil modern calligraphy.
