WHAT WE CREATE
Whatever your project – a special birthday, a corporate meeting, a bar mitzvah, your best friend’s baby shower – we’re on it. We can generate ideas, help you choose the right one, brand it, and then design and craft whatever you need to make it a one-of-a-kind experience.
Every piece gets the same level of care. Business cards for your consultancy? Check. T-shirts for your mission trip. Check. Your wedding invites? Check. And RSVP cards? And menus? And place cards? And monogram designs? Check. Check. Check. Check.
We use our luxury go-to printing techniques – letterpress, foil stamping, or engraving – to make all these that much better. They’re the best. But we’re not too snooty to use other printing methods, so don’t be afraid to ask.
And with years of branding experience, we can’t help but think of your project in terms of brand identity (What does it look like?), strategy (What are you promising to be?), and project management (When do you need this by? How can we make it happen?). Our national branding and big-agency experience permeate all our thinking to provide insights about your project that you may not have thought of.
The price of each job varies greatly, due to the custom nature of the design work. It depends on quantity, type of printing, materials used, finishes, and extent of design work needed. We hold ourselves to your budget and aim to get you the best price for your one-of-a-kind design.
Letterpress printing is higher than other types of printing. To get a nice impression on the paper, you need soft, pliable paper. The most beautiful prints can be achieved with 100% premium cotton paper. A custom plate is made for each printed piece and each color for a specific project. The cost of plates and setup of the press is the same if you print five or 500.
And the two-color cards go through the press twice, requiring twice the labor. So how much does it cost? Our bespoke letterpress printing prices:
One-color + front printing only + 110-pound standard weight paper + printed return address:
- 50 note cards start at $451
- 100 business cards start at $572
- 75 holiday cards start at $776
- 50 baby announcements start at $632
- 100 wedding invitations start at $954
The average project takes four weeks to complete. This includes design, proofing process, and printing your order.
Contact us about your project. We’ll set up a complimentary consultation to chat about your project, show samples, and discuss all the details, such as printing techniques and paper options, fonts/calligraphy, custom logos, and your favorite colors.
After our initial meeting, we provide a custom price quote. Once approved, we collect a design deposit (50% of the total estimate) to begin work on ideas and designs.
We get to work on your one-of-a-kind designs. You will receive PDFs of design options for your project.
Review and Revise
You take a look and make sure the design is exactly what you want. During revisions, check your proof to make sure all details are accurate for your information and/or event.
Once the final proof is approved, we custom order your materials and get started printing and making your job.
We tie on gift tags, attach photos, add stamps to envelopes, or complete any details to make your life easy. Once complete, we will coordinate the pickup or shipment of your order.
PLACING AN ORDERYou can start a custom order by calling the studio or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We require a deposit of 50% to begin work, with balance due upon completion.
