THE DESIGN PROCESS

LET'S TALK
We’ll start with a free consultation where we’ll discuss the event, your tastes and ideas (either in person or by phone). You’ll see samples of our work, papers, ink colors, typefaces.

​With no obligation to move forward we'll start an initial design during our in-person consultation, and we will give you an accurate estimate based on our discussion. If you'd like to move forward, we ask for a design deposit and we start designing your full suite. There are limitless revisions and we see the design process as a collaboration/partnership.

Once a final design is achieved and signed off on we’ll get you into our press schedule. It will take us 2 to 3 weeks to print your job, depending on how busy we are. Expedited services available. 

LETTERPRESS
By choosing letterpress, you join a history of more than 500 years of printing. Letterpress is best suited to designs with a limited number of colors (1-3 is typical). Because the design is quite literally pressed into the paper, it has an immediate impact  on the viewer. It is tactile, it has depth, it is clean and bold. It has the sophistication your design deserves, but also keeps itself humble with its handmade qualities. Letterpress is beautiful on it’s own, but also plays well with others.

FLAT/DIGITAL
Unlike letterpress, there is no limit to the number of colors you can print digitally. If you want to create something with a photograph, digital is for you. Digital is also faster, so if you’re on a tight timeline it may be the way to go. Digital can easily be combined with letterpress to create a design that is truly unique. 

FOIL
With foil stamping, you can add a little bit of bling to your design! Foil is also perfect for opaque light colors on dark paper stocks! Foil can be the star of the show but feel free to combine foil and letterpress for an even more luxurious look and feel.
