About

We are a husband & wife team who have a true passion for art, design, paper, printing, and all things letterpress

A&P Designs is an art and paper company. We are a husband & wife team who have a true passion for art, design, paper, printing and all things letterpress.

A&P Designs started with an idea and a dream and has evolved into a letterpress print shop and custom invitation design studio.

We love bringing art to life through paper. Whether it is a hand drawn element or watercolor design, each invitation is artfully hand pressed in our antique printing press one color at a time, one piece at a time.

We strive to combine clean designs with luxe cotton paper to create a one-of-a-kind invitation or paper good. We have a wide array of both flat and letterpress-worthy design options to meet every client’s needs and budget located in our design bar.

We love to tell stories with our work – your vision & personality is our inspiration. Whether you have a solid idea of what you want, or you’ve got a few random thoughts, we’ll bring it to life using handcrafted designs to make it uniquely you.

Refunds and Exchanges
CHANGES AND CANCELLATION
Changes to your order can be made any time before final proof approval. Orders that have been finally proofed and approved with payment cannot be canceled for any reason. Orders may be canceled at any time prior to completing payment and final proof approval. However, the $100 deposit for your invitations suite is non-refundable once your proofs have been designed.

RETURNS
We create the highest quality invitations and stationery custom-printed for you and to your specifications. Because each piece is unique and approved by you before going to press, we cannot accept general returns for any reason.

In the event of an A&P Designs error, rest assured that we will do everything possible to remedy the problem, up to and inclusive of reprinting with the quickest shipping possible. Refunds are not available on design services and customized invitations for any reason.

Please note that we cannot accept returns due to customer input errors (e.g. typos), and that in approving your final proof you accept responsibility for any errors. If errors are discovered after proof approval, we are required to charge in full for a reprint.
As a reminder, letterpress printing is an artisanal craft and slight variations and irregularities are to be expected. We also use the finest hand-mixed inks that may vary slightly from batch to batch.
Additional policies and FAQs
PROOFING / PRODUCTION:
For designs in the letterpress collection and studio collection we offer unlimited proofs to ensure you love every bit of your suite. We will send pdf digital versions of your invitation suite by email for your review. We are happy to make any changes you send us, though it is always helpful if you are able to consolidate them into one email per proof.

Once we have a final approved proof we will process payment and begin printing. It is important to take care when approving a final version of your suite. Proofs are extremely important because an approved proof is sent directly to our digital press. For letterpress, the proof is used directly to generate the printing plates from which we letterpress print your invitations and stationery. These plates cannot be altered once they have been cast. By approving a final proof you agree that all text and design will appear exactly as shown with no further changes necessary.

PLEASE PROOFREAD SLOWLY AND VERY CAREFULLY: WE PRINT DIRECTLY FROM THE FINAL, APPROVED PROOFS. ONCE YOU APPROVE THE PROOFS, THERE WILL BE NO FURTHER REVIEW OF YOUR ORDER FOR SPELLING, PUNCTUATION OR CONTENT.

Production time varies based on quantity of order and various assembly needed for your suite.
Once approved, I will provide an accurate time frame. Typically, printing for stationery items takes 5-7 business days. Printing for letterpress wedding suites takes 10 - 15 business days. Printing for digitally printed wedding suites takes 8 – 10 business days. All estimates depend on the complexity of assembly.

INK COLORS
Because computer monitors and web browsers vary, the ink colors used in the digital proofs of your invitations may appear differently in person, once they have been letterpress printed. To get a better idea of how a color will look once it has been printed; we encourage you to purchase a sample or meet up with us so that we can show you some of our work. Seeing our work in person is the best way to ensure the color you see on our website is the color you would like to use for your suite.
For letterpress, please note that colors can vary slightly between different press runs (within the same print method), we recommend ordering all of your customized pieces together (invitations, menu, thank you, etc.) whenever possible. Colors will also look different letterpress printed than when printed digitally.
If you would like to print half of your order in letterpress and the other digital print, please note there might be a slight variation in ink color because of the two print methods. We will try to match your letterpress ink as closely as we can to the digital print.
If you would like a color that is not on our color chart there is a $20 fee for custom color formulation.
