Can I order invitations for a Bat Mitzvah, Bridal Shower, Birthday, etc.?

Definitely! Just get in touch with us and let us know what kind of special event you're having!

What is letterpress?

Letterpress is a centuries-old printing method that requires a lot of love - and labor. The inks are hand-mixed, the paper is hand-fed into an antique press, and every impression is executed by an experienced press[wo]man. Someone is literally standing there pressing your custom-created printing plate into each piece of paper. This meticulous process means that each piece is unique and has a tactile beauty unachievable through ordinary (digital) means.

Is it possible to make letterpress more affordable?

Yes! In short, choose less colors and/or thinner paper. For example, a 1-color design on 110lb paper is the most economical production method. Keep in mind that foil colors are more expensive than letterpress inks. Also keep in mind that reducing the quantity of suites in an order does not help as much as you might think; the cost difference between producing 50 invitations vs 75 invitations is not significant.

When should I send out my wedding invitations? How should I word it? Are there rules to this whole thing?

Pretty much anything goes these days - you don't have to do anything you don't want to do and the wording is whatever you want! If you have no wording specifications, we will use our standard wording templates.

If you do want to stick to tradition and formality, I defer to Crane's Formal Etiquette Guide.
