Letterpress can be VERY expensive. When Fiance and I were looking into invites, it was the biggest expense we had on our invites (over 1000 for printing alone.. and we are only having 50 invites). We decided to look at alternitives and came across the L letterpress. If you are DIY savy you might want to look into one. I plan on selling mine after I am done with it, but I don’t think that will be in time for you to do your invites. Paper-source.com has it.

I’ve used Paper Monkey Press to create 250 2×6″ bookmarks with 1 ink & blind emboss and that cost me around $300, which was the cheapest I could find!  The quality was great and the lady I worked with, Rori, was so incredibly nice and helpful.  Here’s the site: http://www.papermonkeypress.com/

Unfortunately I know that your budget porbably won’t lot for letterpress 🙁 (I tried to do letterpress too 🙁 )

but you could still get some beautiful custom design work from like an etsy seller!

Good luck!

Reavesengraving.com has VERY affordable letterpress. You have to design it yourself and the papers are all ivory or white, though.

I used Ajalon Printing and Design (http://invitationsbyajalon.com). You can get 100 invites for around $375 there, but that doesn’t include enclosures or envelopes (although you can do both of those very inexpensively by purchasing materials from office supply stores). So your budget might be a little on the low-end for letterpress, but I am sure you can find something in the $400 range if your budget has any stretch in it.
