We take the greatest pride in our printing processes. Nowhere else will you find this range
of capabilities and quality of master craftsmanship. It’s the ultimate pairing of artistry and execution.
Originally used for book printing dating back to the 15th century, this method, where ink is pressed into the paper, has seen a recent rise in popularity. We push our printers to achieve as deep of an indentation as possible resulting in a visible impression considered to be a mark of high quality coveted around the world by many.
Foils, which are typically metallic, are pressed into paper stock via heated copper plates. Foil stamping adds shiny accents to a design, but can also be used to add matte colors, like white, to darker, colored papers. This technique is wildly popular adding the ultimate luxurious touch to your designs.
The laser-cutting technology uses a high-powered laser directed through optics to cut materials like paper, wood, metal and acrylic. This technique adds intricately cut details to an invitation, sleeve or bellyband, for example.
Engraving, which was first used by silversmiths to proof intricate designs, is achieved by etching designs onto a copper plate, then transferring from plate to paper resulting in a detailed, raised design on the surface of the paper. Because of the intense pressure on press, engraving causes bruising on the backside of the paper, which is viewed as a sign of authenticity and prestige.

Hand finishing often involves the individual gluing of envelopes, invitations being hand-mounted to a separate piece for added design, and assembling of laser cut or printed bands around a set of cards. These are the final steps of many printing processes involving careful, quality handwork to complete and finalize a piece up to our Ceci standards.

Die-cutting is the cutting by machine of paper and other materials into shapes with sharp steel knives. We love to create unique, custom die shapes for our invitations, business cards, envelopes, and anything really!
