MissLucky, try Glidewell Press — they have *amazing* prices for letterpress.  http://glidewellpress.com/

You can also do what I did — try posting an ad on Etsy’s Alchemy advertising board.  Be up front about your budget, how many invitations you need, and what kind of printing you’re looking for.  I asked for a printer who could do the invitations in letterpress, but flat print the rest of the set (the envelopes and the RSVP cards) to bring the total cost down.  I kind of figured that the outer envelope gets torn, the RSVP card gets sent back to us, but the guests keep the invitation so that’s what should look fanciest!

miss cherry pie and coconut used twin ravens press and loved them.  they have a shop on etsy and are really affordable compared to most letterpress printers.  there’s also peter kruty editions in brooklyn who did mrs. bluebell, bop, and grasshoppers invites.  and mecurio brothers out of california are also very popular and affordable.

good luck!

Wow, thank you for the tip about Glidewell Press, Melissa!  Has anyone tried Glidewell Press?  I see their gallery has only a few basic designs.  Do they do custom designs?

check out http://www.madewithlovepaperie.com. Amanda has just recently started her studio and does letter press for a reasonable price as well. She’s based in the Chicago area, so I’m not sure if she does orders from other states, but she’s great with phone and  e-mail communication. Definitely worth checking her out.
