I’ve heard a lot of good things about Mercurio Brothers and they are pretty inexpensive from everything I’ve seen. They also allow you to play around with numbers, colors, etc. to get an idea of how much everything will cost. I ordered samples from them and they looked really nice.

I used The Aerialist Press for my invites…love love love them!

I only got invites (instead of an entire suite) because of how expensive letter press is. I think I paid $435 for 100 invites. But, you pay by the piece and for how many colors. I did 2 colors.

I would def recommend them. They can also do the design for pretty cheap (it was included in mine).

I have also heard people say, just do the invites in letterpress and the rest can be digital or printed to save on $$$.

Good luck!

@riley jane: Those prices don’t look too bad. Unfortuantely, I still won’t be able to afford them 🙁

Yeah, it is still expensive, but the price per invite goes down the more you have. You can get 125  one color letterpress invitations for 240, which isn’t bad at all in the letterpress world. I was going to go without letterpress, but I’ve decided this is one of the things I must have so it is a treat to myself. 🙂 I’m only going to do the invite though. The RSVP etc will be digital.

Yeah, I was worried about paying $1,000s for letterpress which definitely wasnt in my budget. So, when I found The Aerialist Press… I had to do it!

Having letterpress invites was one of the most important things for me too, so I was willing to spend a little extra to get what I wanted.

Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions about the process or anything.

Well we didn’t end up going with them because when we had to cut costs, papergood were the first thing to get reduced, BUT! Take a look at http://www.inkmeetspaper.net/. Allison and Daniel are a husband and wife team that do such an amazing job! I wish we could have gone with them.

they quoted us at $700 for 100 invites and RSVP double-sided postcards, which is an amazing price! You should check them out.

@spoonoutmyheart: I would REALLY love to see how your invitations turned out. I stumbled upon your forum through a google search of “affordable letterpress” and found it so helpful and encouraging that I made an account just so I could reply here haha. You’ve made me want to do my own now and I wanted to know if you would recommend in retrospect or not?
