Wedding Invitation Ordering & Prices

To order wedding invitations please let us know the pieces you will need, the estimated quantity, design preferences, and the date of your wedding. Once you are ready to proceed, we will create proofs via PDF for your review and approval. Upon approval of the proofs, the normal turnaround time to produce invitations is two weeks, plus delivery time. (Faster turnaround may be possible, please ask.) We also work with designers to print their designs by letterpress, and we collobarate with couples who wish to do some or all of their own design.

We offer a variety of paper choices, but our favorite is Crane Lettra 100% cotton paper, which is a heavy-weight card (300 gsm, 110 lb. cover) with a handsome texture, with matching envelopes. Crane Lettra is available in bright white, pearl white, and ecru. The most common size for invitations is 5 x 7", but many other sizes are available. Prices for 5 x 7" invitations are as follows, printed in one color on Crane Lettra, with the design using one of the exclusive designs we offer.
