How long does envelope printing take?

Most printed envelope orders ship within 5 business days of proof approval. If you choose one of our standard fonts, a print proof will be automatically generated for your approval and you will be added to the print queue upon placing your order. If you submit custom files, a proof will be emailed to you within 2 business days. After you approve, you will be added to the queue.

How long does card printing take?

Most printed card orders ship within 5 business days of proof approval.

Can I get rush service?

We do offer rush service that places you at the top of the proofing (if applicable) and printing queue. This offers a two business day turnaround.* To place a rush order, click Rush My Printing after adding the product to your cart or clicking the same button at any time from within the cart.

*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 or white. Below is our standard color offering. To order a custom color, select Custom Fonts/Graphics when you place your order.

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 cards and envelopes?

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

Can you print metallics on cards and envelopes?

We do not have the ability to print in metallic inks. The only opaque we offer is white.

Do you send out samples of printed products?

We offer printed samples of envelopes and cards. You can order printed envelope samples right from the website. To order printed card samples, please get in touch with us.
