How It Works
There is nothing mass-produced about our carefully crafted invitations. We work closely with you to develop a one-of-a-kind design. That design is then put in the hands of our experienced letterpress partners, who use vintage Heidelberg printing presses to achieve the best impressions possible on the best paper out there.
This process can be summarized in 3 parts:
• Discuss desired suite items, design, printing method, ink colors, foils, upgrades, etc.
• Receive a quote
• Initial deposit due (50% of the estimated total)
• Receive design proofs; wording and design tweaks are made until you love it
• Upon digital PDF approval and final payment, your design is sent to print!
On average, your invites will arrive on your doorstep 6 weeks after your initial consultation. This accounts for an average of 10 business days to receive, revise, and approve your suite design + up to 10 business days to print + up to 6 business days for shipping via UPS ground. The turnaround time may be shorter than 6 weeks, but we recommend ordering early to ensure you have your invites when you need them.
Our ever-growing sample design selection is a general starting point from which to create your own design. If you don't see what you're looking for, we'll start from scratch.
We sifted through hundreds of letterpress inks to find our favorite shades of every color. Let us know if you don't see what you're looking for - more colors are available.
Foil stamping instantly adds glamour and elegance. Our primary selection is neutrals; colors are also available, please inquire if you're interested in fuschia/navy/etc. foil.
We use 100% pure cotton paper made with reclaimed textile fibers right here in the USA. Carefully curated and chosen for their luxurious quality, you'll love the way your invitations look and feel. Our house paper is Crane's Lettra #220 ("ultrathick") and Crane's Lettra #110. Developed explicitly for letterpress, Crane's paper is soft, springy, rich, and world-renowned.
