About me:

twig and linen is a Milwaukee, Wisconsin based design studio specializing in custom wedding invitations. But, I don't stop there. I also offer a wide variety of paper goods including thank you notes, party invitations, greeting cards, and birth announcements.

I, Karissa, am the sole designer, and owner of twig and linen. After a frustrating search for my own wedding invitations, I decided to make them myself in order to stay on budget and have something totally unique.

About me:

twig and linen is a Milwaukee, Wisconsin based design studio specializing in custom wedding invitations. But, I don't stop there. I also offer a wide variety of paper goods including thank you notes, party invitations, greeting cards, and birth announcements.

I, Karissa, am the sole designer, and owner of twig and linen. After a frustrating search for my own wedding invitations, I decided to make them myself in order to stay on budget and have something totally unique. This experience was the catalyst for the creation of kiss + tell- a culmination of artistic training, a desire to create, and the love of making beautiful things out of paper.

And just like with those first invitations, I'm not at it alone...my husband is the source of much support and encouragement, wisdom about all things electronic, and of course, he does all the heavy lifting.

About my work:

I strive to provide beautiful, unique paper goods that help you share your good news with those nearest and dearest. All of twig and linen's products are handmade using premium paper and materials in my smoke-free, pet-free studio. All enclosures are custom designed, cut, scored, and adhered individually. My artwork is a mixture of original digital art and vintage images, and all products are professionally printed on a digital printer. Custom orders are always welcome, please contact me with your ideas!

Printing options:

Our standard, default printing process is professional, digital flat printing. All prices listed are for this type of printing, unless stated otherwise. Beginning in January, 2010, we will be offering high quality letterpress printing as well.

Letterpress pricing is based largely on the number of ink colors in each printed piece. When determining the price to upgrade, pay attention to how many ink colors are used (or how many you will want to use) in both the invitation and reply card. To calculate the price of upgrading to letterpress printing, please add the following prices to the flat printing prices in any invitation listing:

1 ink color invitation:
25 invitations = $274
50 invitations = $293
75 invitations = $312
100 invitations = $330
125 invitations = $349
150 invitations = $368
175 invitations = $386
200 invitations = $405

1 ink color reply card:
25 cards = $205
50 cards = $218
75 cards = $230
100 cards = $243
125 cards - $255
150 cards = $268
175 cards = $280
200 cards = $293

2 ink color invitation:
25 invitations = $418
50 invitations = $443
75 invitations = $468
100 invitations = $493
125 invitations = $518
150 invitations = $543
175 invitations = $568
200 invitations = $593

2 ink color reply card:
25 cards = $311
50 cards = $330
75 cards = $349
100 cards = $368
125 cards = $387
150 cards = $405
175 cards = $424
200 cards = $443

For example: 100 letterpressed honeycomb invitations = $395 (flat printed) + $493 (2 color invitation) + $368 (2 color reply) = $1256 total
