- Design your invite. We used Adobe Illustrator to create the design and exported it as a PDF before uploading it to the Custom Printing Plate Program.
- Receive your plate and cut it up into the individual pieces. Our bride wanted 4 separate cards: the actual invite, dinner invite, ceremony invite, and registry card. When you receive the plate, cut up the pieces accordingly.
- Start setting up for print. The actual invite requires 2 colors, which means that we have to roll the invite through the Epic 6 two times, one for the pink flags and one for the grey wording.
- During this time, you should have roll out your ink onto the ink base. Give it time to sit and get tackier if possible. If you want a look like we have here, use less ink.
