A time-honored tradition, every invitation is made by hand using a plate and ink in which an impression is pressed into cotton paper.

Foil Printing

A process similar to letterpress, but instead of ink, sheets of metallic foil are used. The result is truly glamorous, adding another dimension to your invitations.

No. 2 | Paper Types

110lb 100% Cotton Paper
White or ivory
Made from 100% cotton, this lovely iconic paper provides strength and elegance for letterpress, foil and embossing.

220 lb 100% Cotton Paper

Same paper as 110lb, and impressively thick. Ideal for the pillowy impression that only letterpress can achieve. Luxurious in foil.
