On etsy there’s a seller called letterpress light I think?  Does amazing work from pics and it’s almost identical to letterpress invites!

MUCH more cost effective!

I have to say, Mr. Burgundy was also obsessed with letterpress this instant I showed them to him. I highly suggest you check out Bella Figura because they have the most amazing beautiful invitations ever…I like them better than Hello, Lucky! It’s really hard to find letterpress invites priced cheaply, most of them average $600-$700 from what I’ve seen, but I’m ordering samples from Bella Figura this week and I just might bite the bullet and do it. Good luck!

bree72- Their pricing indicates that for 50 it’s just under $500 (in one color) and each addtl set is $3.79. How did you get 100 invites for under $500?

I would use one of letterpress vendors on Etsy. Their prices are great, you’re supporting a small{er} business and you can really get get one on one service. My personal favorite is Suann from Simple Song Design. She did calling cards and stationary for me for Christmas gifts this year  and they are great. She has a blog {simplesong.typepad.com} and a website {simplesongdesign.com} which shows her recent work. Email her, you won’t be sorry. She’s a gem and such a sweet person to work with.

I’ll give another shout out for  Mercurio Brothers.  They did our invites and they were fabulous.

Reaves Engraving —  http://www.reavesengraving.com — also  does wonderful work and they have comparable prices to Mercurio Brothers.  They print on Cranes lettra — so soft!

@ Miss Burgandy – I purchased mine in  Sept. last year and then immediatly put his info on Weddingbee beacuse it was such a great deal. I had so many responses from the ladies that he must have been able to up his prices because of demand! At the time he was even offering that price for 2 colors! He must have realized he was underbidding himself, so sorry about the mis-information. It must have changed just recently.

@bree72- thanks for the response. Affordability and design quality are going to be key factors in whether or not I purchase letterpress, and the current prices at glidewellpress are pretty much on par with most of the other letterpress vendors I have checked out at this point…

I emailed twinravenspress, they had some really pretty invites on that blog! 🙂 Checking out other Etsy designers as well…
