Being an event and wedding planner, I’ve developed a serious love affair for letterpress paper. The thick white paper, the care and craftsmanship involved in creating the deep indentations, and the overall effect of a letterpress card or invitation is simply stunning. So when it came time to order business cards, I was dead-set on finding a way to afford beautiful letterpress.
With much searching through Etsy, local paper stores and presses across the country, I weighed my options and inquired about the cost. My estimates ranged everywhere from $165 for 350 business cards to $400 for 100 (!), and I finally settled on working with Kristin from Twin Ravens Press. Having heard good reviews about her work on Wedding Bee as well, I have to chime in and say that working with her was an absolute pleasure. Not only was she one of the most reasonably priced letterpress providers, she had an incredibly quick turnaround time and went above and beyond the call of duty. My new business cards are on their way as I type this, and I am giddy with excitement to see them in person. For now I have the lovely picture above to drool over.
For any brides who have their heart set on beautiful letterpress at a great price, contact Kristin through her Etsy page (tell her I sent ya!). She also does custom designs for those of you who want something personal for your fab fete. You just might be pleasantly surprised to find that letterpress invitations are within your budget after all.
