Envelopes Lining - Hand-Finishes
Envelope Lining

We can line envelopes with coloured tissue or paper to match your invitation or ink colour. This is done by hand. We can line any type of envelope, although the diamond-flap style lends itself well to lining, as the opening is wide, giving the best visibility of the lining material. We have a wide range of coloured tissue to choose from, including both plain and patterned. Please contact us to discuss in more detail.

Gold Edging

Example of Gold Edging

Strictly speaking, gilding is the addition of gold foil to the side edge of a piece of paper or card. The thicker the stock, the more the gilt edge is noticeable when the sheets are separated. A bevelled edge gives maximum effect. As well as the traditional gold and silver, different colour metallic and non-metallic foils can be used. It really looks absolutely stunning on any invitation or business card.

This is such a wonderful way to finish an invitation. It adds an elegant finishing touch that leaves a lasting impression. It can be done in any Pantone® colour and can either match or contrast the colour of your text. Please contact us for a quotation.

Wax Seals


An increasingly popular finishing touch is using wax seals on your envelopes. Some customers like to create a bespoke stamp and use wax to create each individual seal. Whilst this is looks wonderful it can be rather time-consuming. We have found a company that produces these fantastic self-adhesive wax seals and they look amazing! Their classic styles including English Rose, Laurel Wreath, Heart and Foliage Leaf, are available in silver, gold and rose gold and they can custom make any wax seal in any Pantone® colour.
