- Wedding: September 2009 - Harbison Chapel & The Maple Lane Farm
We want to design our own invitations and get them print locally in San Francisco instead of doing something like vista print if we can. Does anyone know a printer that will print our own design in SF?

I designed my own and had them printed at Hodai in SF chinatown. http://www.hotaiprinting.com/
I think you’ll have to go there in person to work with them, because they are not as nice over the phone. However, the end product was great and they are fairly cheap so it was worth it for me.

sorry accidentally posted it twice so I’ll write more here….
I sent them the PSD files and then went to the store to see the actual print out (like draft version). Once I verified everything (no typos, things aligned correctly), they went off and printed them. I think the process took about 1.5 months or so.

I am using dependable letterpress, http://www.dependableletterpress.com
I’ve just started designing so I haven’t seen prices yet (I know, bad) but he’s been SO nice and helpful and excited when I went DIY on it.

Speedway on 4th St. is pretty good for full-color printing. for approximately 89 cents a page, you can have as many colors as you want in your invites.

Another company that does custom printing is Fong Brothers where Mrs. Eggplant got her invitations printed.
Ho Tai printing has a competitor just up the block from them which offers better prices than Ho Tai. My mind is drawing a blank of the name. I will come back when I think of the name. Sorry! Brain FART!
EDIT: It’s called Pacific Printing Company. Two of my friends got their custom invites printed there. The only vice they had with them is a few of the 100s they ordered were a little dirty. You get to see a digital proof with both Ho Tai and Pacific Printing before they set the plates to create your invites.
