Learn About Our Process
We know that the process of designing and ordering for letterpress invitations and stationery can be overwhelming. That’s why we are here to help guide you through it. We strive to make the entire experience stress-free and comfortable, from the first time that you reach out to us to the moment you have the finished prints in your hands.
The easiest and fastest way to get started is to send us an email or a quote inquiry. One of our friendly and helpful project coordinators will get back to you quickly to ask questions about your project. We’re happy to answer questions about the best way to design artwork for letterpress printing, printing options or anything else you may need to know. This phase is all about discovering information, for both us and for you, the client. We truly believe that there can never be too much detail in our communications!
After we collect information and view your artwork, we will then build and send you a custom quote. We know that one of the biggest concerns when moving into the production stage of a project is the budget. Using our years of expertise in the field, we strive to create and adapt ideas and strategies to work within any budget, so we consider this to be yet another collaborative stage of the process.
After receipt of payment, our in-house design specialist will create a personalized proof for you to review within two business days (but usually faster). We send a PDF proof to ensure every detail is perfect and ready for print. Once you give your approval, we move into the most exciting phase of all: production of your custom printing project!
Using vintage printing presses and the highest quality papers, our experienced craftspeople will skillfully print your project. Finishing techniques such as edge painting and die-cutting are done in house, allowing us to keep the highest standards during production. We meticulously sort through projects after printing, ensuring that every print you receive is beautiful and usable.
Even our packaging creates a special moment for you when they arrive at your door. We carefully and meticulously pack your project to prevent any bruising during the shipping process. Additionally, each package is wrapped neatly like a present, creating an additional experience for each client when they receive their prints in the mail. From start to finish, we hope to create a memorable experience that you won’t forget.
