    I love letter press and would love a simple letter press invitation. Does anyone have a vendor they recommend? Also, how much should I expect to spend per complete invitation?

      For a good starting point, you can try paper-source. letterpress: custom letterpress wedding & party invitations & announcements - Paper Source
      How much it costs will really depend on how many invites you want.
      Custom Invitations, Letterpress Invitations, Wedding Stationery, and More - Dauphine Press also has lots choices.

        I think they are a few hundred more than non-letterpress. I recommend White Aisle.

          Hi Beth,

          I just started my own custom stationary business. And my printer contact gives me great discounts on letterpress. The price he quotes me depends on a lot of factors such as number of colors, artwork, and bleeds.
          For 100 complete invitations (envelope, 5x7 invite, and response card) would probably cost about $350 for 1-color and $500 for 2-color.

          I love letterpress. I think it is definately worth any extra money. PM me if you are interested. You can also check out my website at Karla Zepeda Designs

              Didn't think of this, but are you a DIY person? If so and you know exactly what you want, you can go directly to a letterpress printer with your design. letterpress wedding invitations letterpress stationery carbonlesss forms ncr - Letterpress Printing . They have about a 4 to 5 week turnaround time once the proofs have been approved.

                Wow, I was not familiar with the terminology ... but I definitely like this style. A little too pricey for me, though. Guess I'll stick to the DIY projects! :-)
