Mercurio Brothers has pretty good prices and they have nice paper.

I ended up not doing Letterpress invitations but I have paper samples from Mercurio Brothers if you want to feel the different types of paper they use. I’d be more than happy to give them to you, just let me know.

Wow! My brother has a friend that just started up a letterpress business & I got:

110 2 Color Invitations

110 Envelopes (which were pressed as well)

110 1 Color Maps to the wedding site (about the size of a business card)

110 RSVP cards

for the price of around $800.00. He did an amazing job! I am amazed at the price.

His website is: http://filetterpress.com/

I thought I got a good price!

@MyraG that’s an amazing price. I’d definitely be interested in that information, I sent you a PM! I’m researching back ups because my MOH/Graphic Designer’s computer just died so now I’m back to square one.

If I’m not mistaken, Studio on Fire has a project minimum of $300.

For some reason I thought one of the Bees used Studio On Fire and wasn’t happy with the results…but maybe I’m mistake.

I know that Mrs Cream Puff posted about a negative experience with Mercurio Brothers’ customer service, but I can’t recall any posts on the bee about SoF.

For what it’s worth, I frequent quite a few design blogs and forums and have never heard anything but praise for SoF from the pros.

@studio.ariadne — Maybe that’s who I was thinking of!

Oh looks like I was thinking of Mrs. Bruschetta’s.  But she doesn’t mention who she used in her blog so I have no idea where I got the idea that it was SoF!

I went through a million letterpress printers when I did my invitations. I almost went with SoF but ended up going with Spark Letterpress. They were really great and the cheapest for what I wanted (2-color and thicker paper stock) I also am a designer so I just needed a printer and not the design.

They were super easy to work with and really do great work and are fast.

My concern with Mercurio Brothers was the price of the invites is great, until you add in the price of envelopes, etc…

I’m very happy with the prices and samples from these people on etsy.  They are all around $700 for 100 invites, RSVP’s, and both sets of envelopes:

http://www.etsy.com/shop/majoiepress ($650 one color, $750 for 2, with inner and outer envelopes)

http://www.etsy.com/shop/invitedink (under $700 for simple 2 colors including addresses printed on envelopes, but does go much higher)

http://www.etsy.com/shop/anemoneletterpress ($695 for 100 1 color, $755 for 125, with addresses printed on evelopes)

MyraG was nice enough to send me her stationer’s info, so I’m passing it along here.

The prices are still good, $750 for 100 1-color invites, RSVP’s and printed envelopes, but not the super bargain she was lucky enough to get.  Her samples are also very pretty.
