Due to some snafus (I won’t bore you), we are now behind the eight-ball in terms of our invitations. Our wedding is NYE, and we originally hoped to send the invites out at the beginning of November (we did send STD cards in July, so people know the date).
I am in love with letterpress, and I”m still hoping we can do that for the invitations. The prices are high, though, so we don’t want to pay an extravagant rush fee.
Did you get your letterpress invitations printed on a tight time line? Any advice or recommendations for presses to look at/avoid would be very welcome.
Thanks, as always!

@octonaut: Mercurio Bros does a fantastic job & their costs are very reasonable.

@octonaut: i went through jeronimo’s lithocrafts in santa clara california. they’ll ship out of the state and work with out of state brides. they charge 150ish for one color letterpress. prices were the best around and they’ve won many awards. good luck! 🙂

we used Ajalon-a printing company that will do letterpress. We even custom designed ours and the whole process from us sending in the initial design to them arriving in the mail took about 2 weeks. They were FANTASTIC quality and SO great to work with! Five stars, seriously….

i went with Bella Figura. they were extremely prompt. i chose my invitations and sent the text through on 9/18. i received the first proof within 24 hours. i made 3 rounds of changes, and with each revision they had a new proof for me to view the very next day. i safely received them in Australia within 14 days of starting the entire process! i could not have been happier with their creativity and ability to interpret my rambling design requests, the superb quality of the finished invitations and their extremely fast turnaround 🙂
