I didn’t realize how expensive wedding invitations could be. I will need 90 invitations and my budget is $300. Envelopes I’m not worried about because I plan on doing my own calligraphy. But does anyone know where I could find affordable letter press invitations? I thought maybe RSVP I could do on my own and use a different kind of paper.. any suggestions?? Please help.
Does anyone know someone who I could work with? Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thank You!! 🙂

Letterpress can be VERY expensive. When FI and I were looking into invites, it was the biggest expense we had on our invites (over 1000 for printing alone.. and we are only having 50 invites). We decided to look at alternitives and came across the L letterpress. If you are DIY savy you might want to look into one. I plan on selling mine after I am done with it, but I don’t think that will be in time for you to do your invites. Paper-source.com has it.

I’ve used Paper Monkey Press to create 250 2×6″ bookmarks with 1 ink & blind emboss and that cost me around $300, which was the cheapest I could find! The quality was great and the lady I worked with, Rori, was so incredibly nice and helpful. Here’s the site: http://www.papermonkeypress.com/

Reavesengraving.com has VERY affordable letterpress. You have to design it yourself and the papers are all ivory or white, though.

I used Ajalon Printing and Design (http://invitationsbyajalon.com). You can get 100 invites for around $375 there, but that doesn’t include enclosures or envelopes (although you can do both of those very inexpensively by purchasing materials from office supply stores). So your budget might be a little on the low-end for letterpress, but I am sure you can find something in the $400 range if your budget has any stretch in it.
