Lately, I've fallen in love with letterpress wedding invitations. If you're not familiar with the technique, it's a manner of printing onto a thick paperstock; inked metal type means that each letter creates an impression in the paper which you can feel by running your finger along it. There's something old-fashioned and luxurious about it, yet it remains hip and quirky at the same time. I had been searching through word-of-mouth, recommendations from blogs, and clips in magazines. But I just discovered this convenient website which has a long list of letterpress printers.
I've already spent hours browsing through the different shops and getting new ideas.
I also found Mercurio Brothers,
a shop that has been doing letterpress since 1946! There's not as much unique design on their site, but they offer their printing at a fraction of the cost of others, partially because they use a different system of letterpressing. So if you've dreamed of this unique style of printing but weren't sure how to afford it, Mercurio Brothers could be your answer.
