I love letterpress. Love, love love it. I love the look of colored images impressed into a thick, yummy piece of paper. Is this description grossing you out? Are you thinking, “its just paper and ink, its just an invitation?”
Look at these samples I’ve found in a quick online search. See how rich and luxurious they look. I fear I must have letterpress inviations… and I hope against home that the GTB doesn’t come chasing after me with his wallet and a stack of other wedding bills.
I mean, I’d like to do it myself… rent studio time at the Minnesota Center For Book Arts, but I must say that I am scared of screwing up… majorly.
What do you think? Letterpress or printed? Hire someone or do it myself? Do you have any tips? Suggestions? Send ’em my way!
