Absolutely. Every order includes up to one hour of custom design work for every $250 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. The best format is a vector-based file with all fonts outlined. The second best is a high resolution bitmap image (such as TIFF).

If you're a designer or you've hired a designer who's providing completely press-ready artwork, we can usually offer a 15% discount. Take a look at our designers page for more about press-ready art.
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 $250 you spend on printing. After that, we bill $60 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.
There are several things that can help make letterpress invitations more affordable. Here are a few ideas:
  • Print in one ink color on 300g paper. If you're set on two ink colors and/or 600g paper for the invitation, consider cheaper options for the enclosures.
  • Use a reply postcard instead of a reply card and envelope. Or, skip the reply card altogether and include your rsvp info on the invitation.
  • Skip the reception card. It's very common to include reception info on the invitation.
  • Provide your own press-ready artwork. If you can convince your graphic-designer friend to lay out your set in a nice press-ready format, we'll discount your order by 15%. Take a look at our designers page for more about press-ready art.

Yes. Printing on the back of a card is priced as an additional ink run. We suggest using 600g paper for two-sided pieces; however, it's not required.
A blind-pressed run is priced the same as an ink run. We can either use no ink at all, or a lightly tinted white ink.
Probably. Contact us and let us know as many details as you have regarding the paper. There's a good chance we can buy it directly and if not, we'll let you know how much we'd need you to send us.
In general, letterpress inks are transparent, meaning that you can't print light ink on dark paper. Exceptions are metallic ink, which has decent opacity, and foil, which is 100% opaque.

We can also print large color floods on light paper to give a light on dark effect; however, keep in mind that letterpress isn't really designed for this. The result is going to be somewhat uneven and not 100% saturated. If you do opt for a color flood, we recommend 600g paper so that we can press hard without warping the card.
Yes. We can provide calligraphy for individual guest names and addresses (for envelopes and place cards) as well as for letterpress reproduction. Check out our extras page for more details.
Yes. Envelope liners are available for most of our envelopes. Visit our extras page for more details.
Yes. They're available for A7 (5" x 7"), Arturo (6" x 8"), and Large Square (6.75" x 6.75") invitation sets.
We can ship any envelopes early that aren't being printed for just the cost of shipping. If we're printing return addresses for you, we can have your envelopes shipped a week early for a $100 fee.
Yes. We include 10% extra of any envelope that you or your calligrapher will be addressing.
Definitely. We can print just about any sort of letterpress stationery you might want for your wedding including folded notes and cards. And we're happy to work with you in designing them to match your invitations.
We require a $120 deposit to begin laying out your order. We then create a personalized web page where we post drafts of your layouts for you to give feedback on. Once you decide on the final layout, we require payment in full (minus the $120 you've already paid) to begin printing.

We accept checks, all the usual credit cards, and PayPal.
Once the design is finalized and we've received your payment, we'll have the order ready to ship in 3 weeks or less. Assuming our current workload allows, we can rush the order for an additional fee: 20% extra for a two-week rush or 40% extra for a one-week rush.

For orders requiring significant custom design, be sure to allow several weeks for the design process to be finalized.
Yes. We ship all over the world and can do so at pretty reasonable rates.
