This charmingly handsome bespoke, hand drawn monogram was created by Mrs. Collins and then engraved by her fantastic engraving team. The paper, a great American alpha cellulose workhorse staple of the engraved stationery industry is brought up a notch with the addition of hand marbled paper envelope lining! The monogram is engraved in metallic gold. Gold engraving ink gets an extra “bump” to make it glisten. Sometimes, the first strike goes through the press again without ink and the force of the die or plate hitting it again at two-tons or pressure per square inch burnishes the metallic bits floating around in the ink’s medium.
