    Eliza helped us to create BEAUTIFUL wedding invitations, including her gorgeous hand-lettering for addressing. We've received so many compliments. She was very easy to work with and met all of the deadlines to which we agreed from the start. She was also very accessible/quick to respond by email for questions and willing to share samples and work with us to ensure the final design was our vision. She was sensitive to our budget and offered alternatives where possible but was very up front (in a very polite manner) about realistic costs to achieve the high quality she delivers. She was truly a pleasure to work with and I HIGHLY recommend her!

❤ F R E Q U E N T L Y • A S K E D • Q U E S T I O N S ❤

--What is letterpress? What is foil stamping?--
Letterpress is a centuries-old printing method that requires a lot of love - and labor. The inks are hand-mixed, the paper is hand-fed into an antique press, and every impression is executed by an experienced press[wo]man. Foil stamping is similar, with the foil being applied manually and with heavy pressure. Someone is literally standing there pressing your custom-created printing plate into each piece of paper. This meticulous process means that each piece is unique and has a tactile beauty unachievable through ordinary (digital) means.

--Is it possible to make letterpress more affordable?--
Yes! In short, choose less colors and/or thinner paper. For example, a 1-color design on 110lb paper is the most economical production method. Keep in mind that foils are more expensive than letterpress inks. Also keep in mind that reducing the quantity of suites in an order does not help as much as you might think; the cost difference between producing 50 invitations vs 75 invitations is not significant.

--How should I word my wedding invitations? Are there rules to this thing?--
Pretty much anything goes these days - you don't have to do anything you don't want to do and the wording is whatever you want! If you have no wording specifications, we will use our standard wording templates. If you do want to stick to tradition and formality, I defer to Crane's Formal Etiquette Guide.
