General Printing FAQs

How long does envelope printing take?

We have two different service levels for our envelope printing. With our standard service, you will receive PDF Proofs within 1 business day of placing your order and submitting your guest list. Once you have gone through the proofing process, and we have received your approval, we will put your order into our print queue. Most orders are printed and shipped within 2 business days of approval.

Can I get rush service?

In a time crunch? You’ll be happy to know we do offer rush printing services, placing your printed order ahead of all of the others so we can get it to you a.s.a.p. To place a rush order, all you have to do is click ‘Rush My Order’ after adding the product to your cart or clicking the same button at any time from within the cart. Our speedy print department is able to keep up with your tight deadlines and expedited production, most jobs shipping the same day as approval!

Printing and shipment of rush orders is pending proof approval. Unverified orders will not be printed and shipped, regardless of rush.

What colors can you print envelopes in?

Because we are using a digital printer, we are able to print nearly any CMYK color. This being said, any card other than white will cause colors to become distorted because there is a certain opacity to the toner. Below you will find the colors that we offer on all of the printing pages. These are the most popular colors that have been requested over the years.

LCI Printing Colors

Does LCI offer raised printing (thermography) or letterpress?

At this time we offer flat printing only, printing cards and envelopes on a high end digital press.

Can you print on heavily textured papers?

Although we are able to achieve sharp, crisp printing results on subtly textured papers (such as linen), at this time we can not print on heavily textured/embossed papers (such as wood grain). Since we are not 100% satisfied with the printing results we get on textured papers, we will certainly not pass them on to you!

Can you print white on envelopes?

Yes, we can print sharp, white text on dark envelopes such as black, navy, eggplant, and more.

Can you print metallics on papers, cards, and envelopes?

We do not have the ability to print metallic, or light reflecting text/images on our papers, cards, and envelopes.

Do you send out samples of printed products?

If you wish to see a specific product imprinted with your information, we would consider this a printed proof. In order to place an order for this, please give our customer service team a call.
