There are several factors that set letterpress wedding invitations apart from other styles, all originating with the process of how they are made.

This age-old printing process starts with the creation of a special metal die that is used to make letterpress imprints when the die strikes the paper with enough force to create a depression on the paper instead of raised printing which is created by thermography.

You will also notice that the pricing of letterpress wedding invitations tends to be higher because of the specially created die and the fact they are hand fed through the printer instead of automatically fed into the machine.  Also to be noted is that a thicker paper has to be used to handle the letterpress method.
