Send us an email or give us a call.
We’d be happy to answer any of your questions or chat through your ideas to see if our services are a good fit for you. No pressure!
We’re super friendly and love to be helpful.
Here we will chat all about your love story and personalities, share inspiration and ideas, and create a concept for your dream paper!
We love having you visit our studio when possible OR we can exchange ideas digitally, schedule a phone or video chat, and mail physical samples to facilitate the design process.
Our goal is to establish a vision for your stationery and scheme some of the creative and personal elements we can build into your perfect stationery. This will allow us to put together a custom proposal just for you!
Did we mention this is complimentary?
Once you’ve decided that you can't live without letterpress, signed our contract, and paid the 50% retainer for our services, the design process begins!
We ask that you complete a content questionnaire and we get to work creating digital mock-ups of your stationery. The concepts are refined and perfected with your feedback an until it’s so good it hurts!
This process is typically takes 4-8 weeks, but can be done in less time as needed.
Once every last detail is finalized and you have given approval, we'll order the custom printing plates & all of the production materials.
FIRE UP THE PRESSES! Once all of the materials arrive each piece of your stationery is then brought to life in our studio. We are pretty particular about the details and the quality of printing. So, we have built our studio to maximize our production options while retaining quality control that cannot be matched by other who outsource all of their production.
Depending on our volume and complexity of the project, production generally takes 3-4 weeks.
We'll then add all of the finishing touches and get them ready for.....
Once we complete production, we’ll carefully package your suite for pick-up or shipping.
Or, if you have decided to let us handle all of the details, we’ll carefully assemble, handle the postage, and get them in the mail and on their way.
Then you simply wait for the wave of excitement to roll on in… Your friends & family will not know what hit their mailboxes!

What types of paper(s) do you offer?
It might be easier to tell you what types of paper we don't offer! We are unapologetic paper snobs with a love of all things paper and are continually scouring the world in search of new and interesting papers and textures to use in our projects. We also adore tradition and have several "house" cotton paper stocks that have been used in the fine stationery world for generations.
Can I see a physical "proof" of my invitation?
You will see quite a few digital proofs of your project throughout the design process. As the physical process to produce a single piece of stationery involves all of the same materials and time to produce the entire project, it simply isn't feasible to create a proof of a project prior to full production. We do, however, have an abundance of samples demonstrating paper types, color options, and print techniques. So, rest assured that you'll have a pretty good vision of the final product long before we get to production!
Do you offer printing services?
Yes! We are happy to help other designers bring their projects to life. We have a lot of expertise on papers, print & production methods, and love a good paper friendship!
I'm so overwhelmed and don't even know where to start!
While not technically a question, this is something we hear quite a lot. With the almost limitless possibilities out there, the thought of creating your dream stationery from scratch can seem daunting. But, we are pretty darn good at what we do! And our process is designed to find the creative sparks, walk you through all of the steps, help you navigate the often challenging social graces of stationery and, hopefully, have some serious fun along the way!
What is letterpress printing?
One of the oldest forms of printing, it is a relief based method where a raised and inked surface (type) is pressure applied to paper to transfer the image along with an amazing impression (or deboss) into the paper. It has evolved as a unique blend of old meets new where modern design capabilities are blended with the centuries old practices & machinery. The result is a refined and wonderfully tactile piece of statement making stationery!
Do you offer other methods of printing?
We do! We offer foil printing, in-house digital printing for smaller runs, and have commercial relationships for larger ones. Projects that involve techniques beyond our machinery, we have trusted production partners who can offer engraving, laser cutting, and more. Essentially, if we can dream it, we can do it!
Is there a minimum quantity?
Not necessarily. However, keep in mind that the time to design, the fixed cost of the custom printing plates, and press set-up process are the same regardless if you are printing 1 or 1,000 of an item. The investment for letterpress printing generally makes sense beginning at quantities of 50 and going up from there.
What is your pricing?
As almost all of our projects are custom, the price can vary greatly depending on the level of design, materials, production methods used and quantities. Wedding projects typically start at $1800 and go up from there. Please see the pricing tiers on our services page to get a better idea of the range of investment for wedding stationery. We always prepare a custom proposal for you once we have had a chance to chat and mapped out your stationery dreams!
