I think the easiest way to accomplish that look would be to get pre-imprinted paper.  You won’t be able to do letterpress without a letterpress, though, you know?

The Cricut Cuddlebug will do embossing like the design on the paper. You have to purchase the embossing plates and I’m not sure of the selection.

As far as the actual text, it looks like it is letterpress and you need a letterpress to do that. You could purchases pre-embossed ones. Paper Source has some and then you print the text with a regular printer.

Sorry for the HUGE picture.

I think it would be really difficult to print on paper that already had been letterpressed in the background. The ink wouldn’t sit/imprint on the debossed areas, and I would worry about the details almost getting squished when you ran it through the printer.

I agree that it will be very difficult to print on paper that has been blind letterpressed.  If you had it done, they would probably charge it as another color, because it’s another run of letterpress.

Its called blind embossing- still imprinting the paper, but without ink.

I had a great experience with Jeronimo’s Lithocraft based on a rec from weddingbee.  His pricing was very reasonable for letterpress and they were super nice to work with.
