Both brands offer a rainbow of color inks for you to choose.  Birchcraft prints with soy based inks, except for metallic colors, for all of their wedding invitations.  So going green is as easy as placing your order.

Most of the wedding invitations from Carlson Craft and Birchcraft are printed using thermography.  Thermography is a printing style where a resin powder is added to wet ink and then heated to create a raised finish.  This process is less expensive then using embossing to print your invitations.  The finished product looks beautiful and has a raised feel.
