New Letterpress Reply Cards, Postcard Style!

We’ve noticed a lot more clients choosing letterpress reply postcards over the traditional reply card + envelope for their wedding invitations. We’re all for this trend – it’s more eco (less paper!), and also helps keeps budgets down and keeps letterpress more affordable. Reply postcards cost less to letterpress, and you also save a little bit on the postage. We’ve also seen a huge movement to do 2 color letterpress designs as 1 color (see below for some examples) – a great way to keep your costs down as well while keeping letterpress in your budget. While reply postcards are slightly less formal than reply cards + envelopes, it’s still totally appropriate for even high black tie events. Remember, we’re talking about letterpress postcards on a luxurious cotton paper — they’re still really, really lovely, and we know all of your guests will have trouble parting with them!

Here are a few of our favorites, starting with the Boutique letterpress postcard.

The Champagne letterpress reply postcard — this is usually a two color design, but turning it into a 1 color piece helps keep costs down too.

  2. This is a wonderful idea! I was of the opinion that postcards would be less formal, but as you say, the luxurious-ness of the letterpress certainly “ups” the formality of the event. Not to mention that I love, love, love the idea of using less paper. I am also loving that Deveril…

  6. What a wonderful way to adhere to a budget and be environmentally conscious without sacrificing any of the originality and class of the letterpress cards! Even my formal family – who generally don’t love the idea of the postcard reply – find this option elegant and beautiful.

  7. I just received my samples in the mail and I am in awe…and in love with your invitations! The texture and luxury of your product is unmatched. I am still on the fence about the reply postcard. I like the idea of being different and green, yet I am also wondering how the postcards hold up in the mail…? It is certainly nice to have the option though.
    either way, I know I will be happy with the product!
