Cheap Letterpress Invitation
Source: Bellafigura Letterpress
So... I was going to find an invitation person in Indonesia that I can use to produce a cheap invitation for my Los Angeles wedding... I found a vendor who quoted me about $3+ for a deboss/embossed wedding invitation and possibly an RSVP card. It's pretty nice, it includes lining on the envelopes, two colors, print on each side of the invitations, prints on the front of the envelopes and the designs.. It's a strong contender... However... I was perusing the weddingbee site and I found this post.
and I'm like... HEERMM.....
Check out Mercurio Brothers
I maybe able to afford this letterpress... It's coming up to be around $520 before tax and shipping for:
- 160 invitations letterpress 2 colors
- 170 regular envelopes
- 160 digitally print information cards
So it'll probably about $4+ /invitation for this
And i'm not doing RSVP card because I've had two weddings recently who are directing people to the RSVP website so I'm following on these footsteps, I'm being green and I'm getting my letterpress invitation :)
The only downside is that I don't really like any of their designs, I've emailed them and have not heard back (BOO....) but I did call them and they seemed fine... and all these people I've reached out to to see if they can custom make an invitation for me will charge $500-$1000.... or there are some options to use ready made invitation and changing things for about $100.. none of the designs I like..
Time to outsource things to Indonesia again.
i also found another cheap/affordable letterpress too, the Aerialist Press.
