In a dream world I would have letterpress invitations with a beautiful pattern punched into crisp cotton paper. However it's not going to work in my budget. For the girl who loves the look of letterpress, here is a great middle option: thermography. The script is raised and looks almost as nice and it's 50% less expensive than letterpress. It's still more than flat printing but not out of range. Lots of companies online like Blush Paperie offer this option.
