That is ridiculous.  Does your friend have a design?  I had a great experience with Jeronimo’s Lithocraft, but others have suggested MK Printers, Mercurio Brothers and Studio on Fire.  I had mine letterpressed and gold foiled stamped and they were less than $900 for 250 invites.  I provided the envelopes, but I don’t think it would be that much more expensive.

Does she already have it designed or is that $5800 for the design and printing?

I found that the best thing to do is order envelopes separately. I ordered mine online from paperpresentation.com and saved a ton. The letterpress vendor I was talking to originally was charging $2-3 just for a blank envelope (no liner, no printing).

Adding more than one color also drives the price up because you need a separate plate for each color.

We designed our own and had them letterpressed by Mercurio Brothers. They were very reasonable and they came out great.

If you do not have a design, then that is where the huge mark up comes in. Designers are charging for their time as well.

Also, I saved money by having my envelopes done in offset printing.  You can’t really tell letterpress on envelopes, so it is definitely worth the savings.

@lovebird:  Hey – someone else posted on these boards about Groupon having a super great deal on letterpress invites through Delphine.  It looks like you can get more than 50% off. 

Google “Groupon” and “wedding deals” or try: http://www.groupon.com/deals/dc-wed-delphine-amarillo?c=all&p=6

Have your friend check out Delphine – http://delphinepress.com/p-2480-affordable-wedding-invitations-main.html

If she likes them, this Groupon is an awesome deal!  (It’s only good for another 8 hours…)

We used a local vendor in Providence RI, but you could always work with him by mail/email.  We paid only $750 total for 100 invitations, RSVPS, Accomodations Cards and both sets of envelopes.  We used 2 colors (ink and blind emboss) as well.  We did design them ourselves, not sure if he’d charge more for design work.  His company is DWRI Letterpress, you should definately check them out.

I DIYed mine (about the same amount of paper – 600 sheets, double color).  

Cost breakdown:

L-lettrpress $75

Ink $20

Papers and envelopes $300

Plate $150


She could DIY if she has the patience. 

If not, I’ve heard good things about Mercurio Bros.
