Sweetly Said Press

Sweetly Said Press designs and prints wedding and event stationery as well as everyday paper goods. We specialize in hand crafted, one-of-a-kind designs created just for your event. We offer letterpress, flat printing, and hot foil stamping for all your paper needs.

We print in-house on an antique Heidelberg Windmill. Our environmentally friendly practices include recycling and reusing cut paper waste or packaging materials as well as the use of non-toxic cleaners. Our most commonly used paper is 100% cotton, meaning it is a renewable, tree-free paper. We also offer a variety of green paper products upon request.

Additional policies and FAQs
Due to the nature of letterpress printing, slight variations and irregularities are to be expected. Sweetly Said Press hand-mixes ink that may vary from different print runs. We try to match your letterpress ink as closely as we can to any requested colors, swatches, photos, or Pantone numbers. Since ink colors can vary from each print run, we recommend ordering coordinating items together, for example, invitations, programs, and menus. Due to monitor display, the ink colors in the digital proofs or Etsy listing, may appear differently in person.

Envelopes will be addressed EXACTLY how you provide the address. Do not include any information you do not want on the envelope. We will only use one complied list for the addresses. If you have changes to your list, please resubmit your list given we have not printed your addresses. We cannot provide single or small batches of addressed envelopes after your order is complete and shipped without an additional charge and shipping fee.


PAYMENT is required upfront for all custom printed items. Once you purchase a listing, we will start your digital proofs. We do not provide custom digital proofs prior to payment.

SAMPLES Due to the nature of custom letterpress, Sweetly Said Press does not offer printed samples of your customized stationery; however, we can send samples of previous work. Please contact us to request samples and paper swatches.

EXPEDITING is available starting at $100. Please contact Sweetly Said Press for details on expediting an order or shipping.

TIMING estimates are provided on each listing. The timing varies based on the complexity of the design as well as added elements that may increase production time. The timing also varies by your response to drafts and revisions via email. If we foresee a longer production time, we will notify you upon purchase or prior to purchase, if applicable. We recommend ordering wedding invitations early so it doesn't come down to the wire.

MINIMUM ORDER The minimum quantity for most custom letterpress invitations, announcements, and holiday cards is 50. We understand there are many of inquiries for showers and parties invitations in which less than 50 invitations are needed. We are thrilled you love the designs, however, the initial cost of set up for a custom print prohibits charging less than a quantity of 50. The starting price provided on each listing. Please inquire about flat printing for quantities less than 50.

REPRINTS There is a set up fee of $25 per letterpress color for reprints plus the cost of the stationery. We recommend allowing for extras in your initial order.

DESIGNS We understand some clients see stationery elsewhere that they would like to share when describing what they like. We can use the photos for inspiration only as we cannot copy another designer's work. This also applies to artwork such as Disney characters, Paddington Bear, green tractors with yellow wheels, etc, which are copyrighted. Although, we can use ideas to convey the theme or style. If you have seen stock artwork that you would like to use, we can purchase the art with the applicable license. If you have original artwork that you would like us to print, we can use it if the artist has agreed. You can always ask us about your specific project prior to purchase.

POSTAGE We ALWAYS recommend that you take your sealed cards or invitations to the Post Office to inquire about the postage rate. If an envelope is non-machinable, it will require a surcharge. This can be due to size of envelope, square envelope, reflective foil, ribbons, tags, wax seals, calligraphy, slanted addressing, transparent envelopes, and so on. We do provide custom stamps, however, we are not responsible for the incorrect postage at time of mailing. You should still inquire that it is correct postage at time of mailing.

NOTE We may use a photo of finished stationery on our website, Etsy, and Instagram. We will remove or hide addresses and website passwords. Please let us know if you prefer that your card is not shared online.
