These custom letterpress wedding invitations were designed and printed for a couple from Hong Kong. We worked together via email to design the invitations according to their vision, and the couple happened to be travelling to Vancouver earlier this year and picked them up in person. It was fun to meet clients from overseas after working with them remotely - with most of our overseas clients we never get this opportunity.
I think the couple actually mailed their invitations out from Canada while they were visiting because the postage was cheaper from here to many of their guests living in the United States.
These invitations were printed on 110 lb. Crane Lettra Pearl with a robin's egg blue ink. A separate invitation was also printed in yellow ink for the reception only. RSVP was by email and this information was included on the invite itself, rather than having a separate RSVP card.
For more price lists and more information on custom letterpress wedding invitations, please contact the studio.
A few photos of some recently printed custom letterpress business cards for a variety of clients. The top two were designed by Sunlit Letterpress, the bottom two by the clients themselves.
The card at the top was printed on 220 lb. Crane Lettra - and the photo shows the increased thickness and depth of impression that comes with a thicker stock. The bottom card is printed on 80 lb. kraft stock - it is a lighter stock than the Crane Lettra, but it is a bit more rigid and still offers a nice finish for letterpress printing.
For more information on custom letterpress business card printing - designed by us or by you - please contact the studio. We look forward to working with you!
Above is a photo of some recent cards that we printed for Taryn - using a design from our Ready-to-Wear Letterpress line.
Cards from the RTW line are pre-designed and sold in set quantities and ink colors that minimize costs. Please download our Ordering Guide (PDF) to view available designs, finishing options, and pricing.
