How much do custom invitations cost?
There are so many variables to consider when pricing invitations: quantity desired, number of enclosure cards, paper, printing method, envelopes, liners, addressing etc. At the very basic level, 100 flat printed invitations with reply card, + matching envelopes and large envelope liner start at $8.50/set. Letterpress Suites start at $11/set, respectively. Custom work begins at $1500. More information + package options can be found on our Services page.
When should we get started?
For wedding invitations, the design process should begin a minimum of 4 months before your event date. Smaller projects can fit into a shorter timeline. It's best to get in touch to see if we can accommodate your timing.
Do you offer rush service?
Yes. Depending on our schedule, there may be an applicable rush fee.
What types of printing methods are available?
We specialize in letterpress printing. We also offer flat printing for a more budget friendly option. On occasion, we dabble in screen printing on paper- although we do most of our screen printing on wood. Learn more about our printing methods here.
We're on a budget, can you still help us?
Yes. If you have a particular budget in mind, we can do our best to curate an invitation suite to accommodate. Fill out our client questionnaire here to get started.
What is edge painting?
For letterpress printed orders that are upgraded to our 220lb stock, edge painting is an add-on option. The edges of the stock are literally painted to accent the suite design. Edge painting gives a little unexpected pop of color- or glimmer (when metallic) to your guests when opening and handling your invitations.
What else can you do?
Just about anything paper related you could need for any fantastic event- including, but not limited to: programs, menus, escort cards + favor tags (we also do wooden event signage and other screen printed projects)
Any other hot tips?
Always! Be sure to check the weather forecast before mailing your invitations. In the case of a predicted torrential downpour- your invitations can wait a day or two.
When sealing your envelopes- it's best not to over-do it. The back of our euro flap envelopes come to a point. We always suggest to moisten only about an inch on either side of the point. This avoids your envelopes (and liners) being destroyed in the effort to open them.
During assembly- it's best to avoid wearing nail poilsh. It can transfer to beautiful paper easily.
