For baby announcements, we offer a free 2-week rush, meaning that the order will be ready to ship in 6-10 business days once the design is finalized and we've received your payment. Assuming our current workload allows, we can add a super-rush for an additional 20% fee (ready in 3-5 business days).
Absolutely. Every order includes up to one hour of custom design work for every $500 spent on printing. That's generally plenty of time to customize one of our gallery styles to suit your occasion.

Take a look at our custom options page to see what sort of options we offer or contact us with specific questions.
Yes. If you own the rights to the image and it's in a format that's letterpress-friendly, there's no charge to incorporate your image. If it's in a not-so-friendly format, we can let you know what options you have for adapting the image.

The best format is a vector-based image. The second best is a high resolution bitmap image (such as TIFF).

If you're not sure, just ask.

Yes we can. Let us know what you're thinking and we'll give an estimate of the number of hours we'll need to spend. We provide up to one hour of free custom design work for every $500 you spend on printing. After that, we bill $90 per hour.

Our custom design process is great -- you can view the design in progress on your own personalized web page and give us feedback. If you're thinking of having an invitation or announcement package designed from scratch, be sure to allow several weeks for the design process.
Yes. Printing on the back of a card is priced as an additional ink run. Thicker paper will help keep the letterpress impressions on the front and back from affecting each other.

If you want to get fancy, we can print a duplexed card. We'd print the front and back on separate sheets, then glue and trim after printing to completely eliminate impression show-through. Contact us for a quote on duplexed cards.
