Ordering Letterpress Wedding Invitations Online

Does it seem scary to buy letterpress printed wedding invitations online? Are you worried about the quality of the printing, types of paper used, or just feeling overwhelmed with options?

Whoever you choose to work with for printing your wedding invitations, we recommend ordering a sample pack of papers and previous invitation samples. If the business you are considering using has enough work and experience "under their belt" they will be happy to send you samples. If you let them know what more about your wedding inspiration, they should also be happy to include samples that may fit your style.

You can order a sample pack from us for $20. Email us today to request one!

P.S. It's also important to think ahead when ordering letterpress wedding invitations. Letterpress printing is an art form, and printers will always have a number of jobs to do. Most companies will print letterpress invitations in approximately three weeks. If they are designing for you too, you have to allow at least a week for this process.

How to Only Invite Specific Guests to Your Wedding

rsvp_#_guests.JPGrsvpwordingexamples

 

Our customers often ask us the best way to invite specific guests to their wedding, in other words….how do you only invite certain guests and make this clear to them on the wedding invitation?

The most traditional way to do this is to include inner envelopes with the guests’ names. But only a small percentage of our customers choose to address their customers this way.

Instead, most couples use wording such as this on the RSVP card:

1)       A line for ____ seats have been reserved in your honor

2)      ____ of _____ will be attending

Either way looks nice on the rsvp card, and is a polite way to tell your guests to only bring who is invited.
