        That looks amazing!!  You did a professional job on yours.  Perhaps there's another calling for you after your wedding.  Thanks for sharing your process.  Did you come across any problems or kinks with the letterpress?

            Hi Sarah!

             

            Those looks AMAZING!  You mentioned the regular price would have been $1200+, did you end up tallying how much you actually spent by doing it yourself?  Thnx!

            Hi Ali,
            Thank you so much! Letterpress is a relief printing technique using a press which raised the surface of the type. I checked the prices at couple printing shops and 25 sets of invites (4 cards each set) it's going to cost me more then $1200.00. I didn't want to spent that much on the invites so I went DIY way.
            I follow a tutorial from here http://www.boxcarpre...s/blog/2009/11/ and ordered a plate from them by sending in my design.

            I brought the press and inks from amazon  http://www.amazon.co...35498620&sr=8-1


            There's two place I got the rhinestone from:
            http://www.haitrim.com/ ($3.00 each)
            http://www.amazon.co...ils_o00_s00_i00 ($11.99 for 12)

            Papers: http://www.paperpresentation.com
            I hope this help. :)
            Best,
            Sarah
