I already have my artwork designed, would you be able to print it for me?
Absolutely! We are more than happy to work with you and your designer and give advice on how to best set up files for letterpress or hot foil stamped wedding invitations.
I'm on a tight budget but I love letterpressed invitations. Do you have any recommendations?
Certainly! We are able to help couples with creative options to fit letterpressed wedding invitation printing into most budgets.
Print 1 color versus 2 color on your invitations.
Pick the more common size of 5 x 7 instead of over-sized wedding invitations and envelopes.
Print on 110# weight paper versus 220# for your enclosure cards.
Omit the separate reception card and include the information on your invitation.
Just contact us and we can help put together custom quotes for letterpressed wedding invitations and foil stamped wedding invitations. We are here to help with combinations that fit your tastes and budget.
How many wedding invitations should I order?
Plan to order one invitation per household (not person). This invitation will cover an individual, couple or family. When you have a final count we STRONGLY advise you to add at least 15 extra invitations. Setup costs to put an order back on the press and any cutting and finishing can make a few more invitations costly. The cost is considerably less to order extra invitations with your original order rather than placing a second order later for a few extras. These will come in handy in case there are any last minute additions to your guest list and you definitely want a few extras for keepsake treasures.
Are extra envelopes included for addressing snafus?
Yes, we are happy to include extra envelopes upon request, free of charge.
Do you offer inner and outer envelope sets?
Yes, we do. They're available in A7 and Windsor sizes as well as several 5.5" and 7" square sizes.
Do you offer envelope liners and belly bands for wedding invitations?
Yes, we do. We're able to offer everything from a hint of shimmer color to creating and printing custom one-of-a-kind envelope liners, belly bands and tags.
How long does it take to design a custom wedding invitation?
This process takes between 1-2 weeks depending on the complexity of the design and number of items being created.
After the initial consultation and collaboration of ideas, the preliminary round of proofs will be emailed for your review and feedback.
We'll refine from there until we have a design that that you love.
How long does letterpress printing and/or hot foil stamping take?
After final approval of custom artwork (or customer supplied press-ready artwork), turn around time is usually 10-12 working days to complete.
When should I start on my wedding programs?
This depends on how you would like your wedding programs printed. If you would like letterpressed wedding programs please allow 10-12 days for printing and any specialty die-cutting or other finishing. Even if you're still waiting on final details it is a good rule of thumb to start the design process at least a month before the wedding. Paper selections and printing methods can be decided and last minute changes are easily accommodated.
Do you offer rush service?
Usually. Just let us know if you need your invitations quicker and we'll check our production schedule. If space is available we can rush your order and have it ready for pickup or for shipping in 7 working days for a 50% rush fee (not including expedited shipping costs).

When is payment due?
A 50% deposit is due prior to any proof preparation. The remaining balance (less deposit) plus shipping costs and taxes (if applicable) is due before we ship or at the time of pickup.
What types of payment do you accept?
We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express as well as personal or corporate checks.
Do I have to pay sales tax?

Can you help me with my other wedding printing needs beyond my Save the Dates and wedding invitations?
Absolutely! We can print any coordinating stationery you might want for your wedding including rehearsal dinner invitations and menus, guest itineraries, welcome basket booklets and tags, labels for treats, wedding programs, escort cards, place cards, menus, table numbers, thank you notes, and anything else you will need. Budget-friendly digital/flat printing is often used for these types of pieces.
Are you fast, affordable and luxurious?
