Do the World a Favor, and We’ll do you one back – Free Letterpress Favor Cards

Not to toot our own horn, but this little free favor card promotion of ours has been phenomenally successfully – more so than we could have dreamt!  Some of the letterpress favor cards we printed even wound up on the Today Show!  To see so many generous people helping out worthwhile non-profit organizations instead of giving out little bags of Jordan almonds at their wedding (not that we have anything against those delicious treats) is just amazing to see.  It’s so inspiring to see such genuine goodness in people!  But of course, we never had any doubts that our clients are just those kind of thoughtful, big-hearted people to make a promotion like this a wild success.

Admittedly though, with there being such a rich abundance of amazing charities to consider, it can be little tough to decide just which one you would like to donate to in your guest’s honor.  To get your generosity muscles flexing though, here’s a tiny sampling of just a couple of the organizations we’ve printed cards for so far: The American Cancer Society, The World Wildlife Fund, Kiva, Faith in Place, The Human Rights Campaign, PETA, Donors Choose, Tiyatien Health, The St. Judes Childrens Hospital, Between Friends Club, The ALS Association, The Survivor Fund, The Wounded Warrior Project, Susan G Komen for the Cure, The American Heart Association, The Starship Children’s Hospital and Foundation, The American Lung Association, Ag47, and The Center For Addiction and Mental Health. And this really is just the tip of the iceberg, amazingly enough.

Having trouble selecting just the right charity?  You might want to consider making smaller donations to several different organizations, so that way the love’s spread around even more.  Another really cool way to get your guests involved is to let them vote for the one they prefer at the wedding.  You can list the possible nonprofits you’re thinking about on the favor cards and then let them vote by either writing on the card and handing them back, or by putting them into one of several boxes (one for each charity).  Then just tally up the votes, and you’re all set!

So if you’re planning on working with us for your letterpress wedding invitations and think you might like to make a donation to a nonprofit in lieu of favors at your wedding, please let us know – we would absolutely love to print them for you!  Please do take a moment to look over the details on our promotion page. And just a tidbit more fine print for this: this promotion is for letterpress favor cards only, and does not include foil stamped favor cards (sorry!).  If you would like hand calligraphy accents, edge painting, or corner rounding included on these cards we’ll be happy to include those things as well, but we do charge extra for those kinds of optional embellishments.

    I’m getting married soon and would like to donate on behalf of my guests to the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. I read somewhere you are kind enough to provide the letterpress favor cards. Is that true? Would it be possible to get 200 of these made? Are there any additional costs I need to be aware of?

    Kind regards

    Hi Caroline!
    Thanks for your comment and congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Yes, as long as you place an order with us that is at least a $500 order, we’d be more than happy to print complimentary letterpress favor cards for your wedding as part of this promotion. The order doesn’t necessarily have to be for wedding invitations – it could also be for stationery for your wedding day like programs, menus, thank you cards, place cards, or anything like that. The full details of this ongoing promotion can be found here on our website:

    If you have any other questions please just let us know. We can be reached any time at

    Good evening,

    If we were to need 180 of these made, what additional costs would we be in to?

    One of my bridesmaids is battling lymphoma and will reach the important milestone of “day 100 after her bone marrow transplant” just four days before my wedding. I would like to surprise her with a donation to LLS in lieu of favors. Your help in making this announcement happen with these cards would be just wonderful. Please email me with details and next steps. I am fully on board!

    I am getting married at the end of July, in 2015. I was wondering if you are still giving away free letterpress donation cards? If possible, I would need 125 cards. We are going to make a donation to The Wounded Warrier Project. Thank you for your help!

  20. erica.henriksen says:

    Hi Courtney! Yes, this promotion is still on – we’ll be in touch today with more information!

  21. Olivia says:

    Re gifts for the wedding, is it OK to incorporate in the invitation the preference of ‘money gift’ over having a wedding registry? Any suggestion of wordings in a way that it is not offensive and doesn’t make it sound that invitees are paying for their plate.

    Thank you.

  22. tiffany says:

    Hi, Olivia! According to the most traditional rules of etiquette there should be no mention of gifts or your registry on your wedding invitation or enclosure cards. It’s preferable to pass this information on via word of mouth or your wedding website. Hope that helps!
