I won my office Holiday Party raffle and am considering using my “big” (ok. $300) to obtain a dream of mine to have letterpress invitations. I have been looking around and while I certainly cannot get anything done at the big press houses, some of the smaller ones are within my budget for printing the invitations (I figure that I can DIY my RSVP and other enclosures if necessary.) With my paltry budget it may seem a silly splurge, but I have had to give up so many things since my parents decided to bail on helping me with the wedding that I thought this one little thing may be what I need to feel positive about the wedding.
Anyway, enough emotial hooblyhoo. Does anyone have any suggestions on low priced presses? I thought this thread could be a good resource of all the different places.
I’m looking for 40-50 invites, one color. Having RSVPs done too would be nice, but aren’t necessary.
Let me know your favorites.

The Aerialist Press is pretty affordable and the owner, Alex, is really nice and accommodating – I’ve emailed her before.

We used the Aerialist Press too. They were awesome and affordable!

I used her for my letterpress invitations and I know she can work with your budget. She makes beautiful designs. I was very happy with them.

Thanks guys. I had looked at the Aerialist press, but none of their designs really worked for our wedding (FH wants really classic and I like quirky). But Ma Joie Press I am excited about. I had seen the listing for their Gatsby invitation but was turned off by the $650 price. From their website, though, it looks like to could possibly, maybe be attainable!

I designed our invites myself and am having Mercurio Brothers print them… they have good reviews and I haven’t found lower prices anywhere else. For what you want (50 invites, 1 color), they would charge around $200 plus shipping. If you’re able to do your own design, it might be a good option.
Good luck! It’s great that you found some extra money to do something special. Sometimes it’s those little things that make a huge difference.
