Engraving is the most exquisite form of printing.
If you drive German, wear French, travel Italian, and bank Swiss, you want to choose engraving for your stationery and event invitations.
Engraving, also referred to as die-stamping, involves the carving of your design into a metal die (or plate). Your ink color is then applied to the die, which is mounted to the engraving press. The press exerts great pressure in the stamping of the paper which is hand-fed one at a time. The result is raised ink on the front of the paper and the inimitable “bruise” of the press die on the back of the paper.
Running one’s fingers over ink and feeling a texture does not ensure it was engraved. Turn the paper over to see the “bruise” of engraving.
