All of our designs are custom to each order, combining hand-drawing and digital design to create a look that is unique to our shop. After creating an initial proof, we offer up to three revisions to finalize the design. We want to help you get your wedding day just right, and are always happy to hop on the phone or chat via e-mail to ensure this.
These maps are hand printed, one by one, on a Chandler & Price Press. Due to the nature of hand printing, the color may vary slightly from print to print. Hand printing is the way to go for those who want to ensure their wedding day is as unique as possible.
Our preference is to use a heavy-weight Cranes Lettra (110 pound) cotton paper in a soft white or ecru color. This type of paper allows for a deep impression for letterpress and a nice, substantial feel. Other paper options are available upon request. Our standard save the date is 4.5 x 6.25 inches (A6).
The most common envelopes we use are Cranes, Neenah, and French Paper envelopes. Depending on the color and weight you would like, this may vary. We also offer the options to have hand-lined envelopes and return address printing on envelopes at an additional cost.
Due to the type of letterpress we use, and because we are a small operation, we do have a few limitations when it comes to printing. Unfortunately, we cannot offer the items noted below:
- Die Cutting
- Iridescent Inks (other than gold or silver)
- Flat/Digital Printing
- Foil Stamping
A deposit is required to start the design process via an Etsy listing. The balance can be paid directly through PayPal or by check. Balances paid through Etsy will cost an additional $20 to cover fees. Full payment must be received prior to the order going to print.
We ship with UPS Ground within the US. International and/or expedited shipping can be added for an additional fee if needed.
The timeline may vary depending on how quickly the design is approved for print. Once a design is approved, you can expect to receive your order within 4 weeks.
