Weber invitation

People often ask us if we can print in languages other than English. The answer is a resounding “YES”, as you can see with this English/Arabic wedding invitation. I love the choice of colour and the lovely artwork on this letterpress invitation. We don’t print many folded wedding announcements any more, but this is a fantastic example of what it can look like.

Printed invitation – Melissa & Richard

Here is an elegant wedding invitation we printed for Melissa and Richard. The calligraphy was created by Allison at Allison R. Banks Designs. If you love the look of calligraphy, a great idea is to hire a calligrapher to design your invitation suite and then convert it to a digital format so it can be printed in whatever method you want. In this case, Melissa wanted calligraphy AND letterpress printing, so we worked with Allison to convert the calligraphy artwork to a letterpress-ready format. The result is the best of  both worlds!

Pete Ryan postcard

This was a fun postcard printed for our illustrator friend Pete Ryan for use as a holiday promo. Pete uses a lot of textures in his illustrations so we weren’t sure how this much halftone would turn out in letterpress, but it turned out great and reflected his style well. If you want to see some very clever illustrations like the one below, you might want to check out his website.

Printed on 300 gsm Lettra, pearl white, 2/0 inks, 4×6″.
