This is a 3 part question:
1. Can you print and letterpress an invitation so that they overlap? If so, is this not advisable? etc.
2. How much does it cost to have a plate made for letterpressing?
3. Does anyone know someone who will letterpress for cheap? The invite is already designed, so they dont need to do anything except press the sucker, and font.

1) If you’re asking what I think you’re asking, technically yes, but I don’t think it could be done through like a regular printer. Usually the cardstock that they use is pretty thick (so that you get a nice indentation), so getting it printed with a normal printer might be a little challenging.
2) Not sure. For me, the price included the plate, the paper, and the printing. I just did a quick Google search for it, and I don’t know if distributors would sell a custom plate to someone outside the industry.
3) I did the same thing (designed it myself, sent the design to a printer), and used Vertallee Letterpress. I’ve been really pleased. The price was actually better than Mercurio Brothers (the second cheapest I found, but also a good choice — their samples looked good too).
