Mrs. Cupcake’s engraved invitations lead me into doing a lot of researching on letterpress…I decided not to print them myself (due to time and cost for now) but I did want to design them.
There’s something to be said about using a 19th century craft!

love them, they look great… Tacky questions- but about how much does that cost? And for how many? Thinking about doing something similar but curious what the cost would be…. thanks.

Kseniya Thomas of Thomas Printers printed these out for me…I don’t want to disclose the exact cost but her cost was even better than Aerialist Press and Mercurio Brothers who already have really great pricing for letterpress. I believe just about any letterpress printer will work with you to use your own design.
What’s I think is awesome about letterpress it’s not just made by a machine…someone has to place each piece of paper into the press and ink them. And that it’s a 15-19th century craft that people have turned into small businesses.
