Working With Us
Our favorite projects are those which give us the opportunity to pair with clients to create original, custom designs. We would love to take your creative visions and turn them into beautifully printed letterpress pieces. Here’s a little bit about what to expect in working with us.
Our process begins by meeting with you and talking over your ideas and visions for the project, your budget, and your timeline. After this meeting, we’ll outline an estimate for your project, and send you a contract. Once we receive your signed contract and a deposit, we’ll get to work! Our first step is to create sketches of the design ideas we discussed in our meeting, which will show various ways the project could progress. From there, you will choose your favorite and we’ll create an original illustration for your project. Once you have chosen your final design and picked out your paper and ink colors, we'll begin printing your project. Soon after, it will be delivered to your door!
Pricing can vary widely depending on your project, but here are some basic pricing guidelines to give you an idea of what you can expect.
An example of the breakdown of one of our basic custom-designed wedding invitation suites:
An initial meeting to discuss your project (either in person, over the phone, or Skype), custom design with 1 revision, 5x7 invitations, 3.5x5 RSVP cards and envelopes letterpress printed (in the same color as your invitations) with your return address. This package starts at $1400 for 100 sets.
Keep in mind that pricing is somewhat flexible based on what elements of the suite you would like, and how many prints.
Printing the same wedding invitation suite without design begins at $800. Please see below for more information about printing with your own designs.
Business cards start at $200 for 250 cards. Pricing is for printing only. Please contact us for specifics in logo design and layout.
PRINTING WITH YOUR DESIGNS
We can also print from designs that you already have. Files must be received in Adobe Illustrator format (with type outlined), or as a high-quality PDF made from an Illustrator file.
Our base fee for printing is $200. We use photopolymer plates for printing which are wonderful for custom graphic work. The price generally includes the cost of your photopolymer plate and press set-up. There is an additional per-print cost (which varies depending on your project and the size of your prints). Some restrictions and specifics apply, so please contact us for pricing. We would love to chat with you!
Thank you for looking and we look forward to hearing from you!
