What it looks like: A wide array of fine decorations and subtle enhancements, which enrich the beauty and precision of an invitation.

How it's done: Hand finishing often involves envelope gluing and inlays lining, ribbon tying, assembling of pockets and belly bands, ordering of inserts and attachment of embellishments and lace.

Paper pointers: Hand finishing means that design is crafted by hand, so each piece varies slightly from one to the other. 

Ink tips: Hand finishing gives your invitations a very personal, tactile feel and can help reflect your style and personality. It separates them from any mass produced printed products. 

Turnaround time: Hand finishing itself generally takes up to three weeks depending on the finishing type and complexity. You might want to avoid design that requires additional hand works if you have a short timeline.
