Custom Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Just like each couple, each custom wedding suite is entirely unique and tells its own story. And each job is customizable from design to dimensions. We never work from templates. Your wedding suite will be entirely one of a kind and completely handmade. We will work with you throughout the entire process to ensure your invitation is the perfect introduction to your special day.

Letterpress is a completely handmade process so we can truly get creative with a letterpress wedding invitation. From a flat card, folded card, trifold, accordion fold with a perforated RSVP, custom die cut shape...the possibilities are endless!

All printing is produced on vintage letterpress equipment. Every sheet of paper is hand-fed through our printing presses one at a time, one color at a time. Therefore, prices are determined by quantity and color. Most time and work is dedicated to the set-up, rather than the printing, so we set minimums on orders to make the most of our resources and time. The combination of our labor intensive process and endless customization makes it difficult to offer initial quotes without key information about the design and number of invites. Listed below is the minimum order for a basic style wedding suite. We can always customize and build from there!


Save the Dates

A Save the Date sets the tone for your wedding. It's an opportunity to introduce a theme and present a teaser of the formal invitation that will follow. Creating a cohesive suite starts with the Save the Date. A postcard is the most popular format.

A flat design fee of $150 is applied to all custom Save the Date orders. It is non-refundable in the event your order is canceled before production. This fee goes towards the total cost of design which will increase based on custom illustrations and extensive revisions. Printing costs below indicate the price for a postcard size card (4.25" x 5.5"). Minimum of 50 required for an order. Printing costs are subject to increase due to size. Does not include envelopes. Printed envelopes available for an additional fee.

1 COLOR: $50 for set up + $2.00 per print

2 COLOR: $100 for set up + $3.00 per print

3 COLOR: $150 for set up + $4.50 per print

Formal Invitations

In the formal invitation, we continue the theme established in the Save the Date to compose a collected suite. Our most popular style is a simple one piece flat card that includes all the information your guests may need. We have also created a variety of different suites with multiple pieces, trifold layouts, custom die cut shapes, perforated RSVP cards, and more! However to provide an accurate quote for more elaborate and detailed suites will require a more in depth chat.

A flat design fee of $200 is applied to all custom Formal Invitation orders. It is non-refundable in the event your order is canceled before production. This fee goes towards the total cost of design which will increase based on additional work provided such as custom illustrations, maps, and extensive revisions. Printing costs below indicate the price for a 5" x 7" flat card. Minimum of 50 required for an order. Printing costs are subject to increase due to size and complexity. Does not include envelopes.
