Mercurio brothers is the cheapest you’ll get. http://mercuriobrothers.com/

The only other cheaper alternative is pressing them yourself at a letterpress studio that rents their presses, or an L-letterpress.

I used The Aerialist Press – they were very inexpensive, and I have gotten SO many compliments on it. They created a custom map for me for just $50, and it turned out perfectly!

The cheapest!  My uncle has printing company and is taking care of our invites.  Just found out he can do letterpress.  Very excited.

I was looking at this company up in Napa before changing to thermography. They run a special, 100 invites with envelopes and 100 enclosure cards for $559. http://invitationsbyajalon.com/specials.html

Try Reaves Engraving. A North Carolina based company. Unfortunately I heard about them after I ordered thermography from somewhere else, but it turned out they had the design I had picked! And I love love love me some letterpress. Le sigh.

I got amazingly cheap letterpress (cheaper than Mercurio brothers–it was $340 for 200 invites and another $150 for reception cards, all on Holyoke 140lb. cotton paper which looked and felt soooo much more expensive than Crane’s 110lb. stuff), and the guy was wonderful to work with. Definitely recommend him–his name is Matthew Kelsey (www.mkprinter.com).

I also used Aerialist Press–I can’t say enough good things about them.  Beautiful invitations, excellent communication and timely delivery.  There was a snafu with the delivering and Aerialist was very quick and responsive and fixed the error extremely graciously.  Overall I am so, so pleased!

I also used Aerialist Press. Custom design, beautiful two color invitations, and they were still a fraction of the price quotes I’d seen from other letterpress companies. Alexandra has great communication and everything comes packaged beautifully. I got so many compliments on them!

I second Reaves Engraving. I ordered their engarved invitations but their letterpress is even cheaper. I spent about $385 for 100 invitations, reception cards and info cards. Very high quality.

@UK Bride: According to their website, 200 invitations are $430 not $340. Were you getting a discount?

Twin Ravens are fantastic. We used them. 🙂

@Mommalita: That higher price includes envelopes that have a return address letterpressed on the flap. I got the $340 price because I opted out of having him do my envelopes (got them and the liners at envelopperinc.com).
