I have been really exicted about our letterpress invitations. We worked with a young, local, graphic designer whose business is really just starting to take off and got a great price.
The letterpress suite includes the invite (with tiny crystal embellishment), a RSVP postcard (with funny mad lib), a guest information card, a lined envelope, and a belly band. In lieu of an inside envelope, we added the guests’ first names to the belly band. It looks funny here, but once assembled, the first name peeks out of the envelope when you open it. Not visible here but I addressed the envelopes in my own version of free-hand “calligraphy” and a custom return address stamp from Paper-Source. I needed a $0.65 stamp for the outside and a $0.32 stamp for the RSVP postcard (Sept 2012 postage rates).
TODAY I mailed them out after requesting hand canceling, of course 🙂 .
Now it’s starting to feel real!!!
