Unfortunately, most letterpress printed invitations are very expensive and many available designs can be too busy for some tastes.
With these invitations I've taken it in different direction. By keeping the designs simple and hand setting the type I can offer clean, elegant invitations at a low price (convo me if you need more or less).
This set of invitations includes 100 5x7 invitations, matching 4-bar (3-1/2" x 4-7/8") reply cards, and envelopes for both. I'll letterpress print your return address on the large envelope flap (you can chose a pointed or square flap for the invitation envelope) and your reply address on the small envelope front.
Here's how it works: You choose the typeface(s) (see photos for options), color, large envelope flap shape, and how you want the text oriented (centered, left, or right), include the text you want in the "comments to seller" or a convo, and I'll hand print your invitations. That's all. Easy!
If you're looking for something more customized, convo me to discuss the particulars. Need to see it in person first? Convo me about samples.
To sum up:
* Pick a typeface/font (You may chose multiple typefaces! Use a different typeface for your names or emphasize something else. Get creative!)
* Pick a color.
* Pick a flap shape for the large envelope.
* Decide how you want the text positioned.
* Place your order and tell me all of the above in the "notes to seller".
* Wait for your letterpress printed invitations to arrive and start sending them out!
