A Showcase of Letterpress Invitations for Inspiration

By / May 14, 2010 / Inspiration

Letterpress printing has been around since the 1400’s, but we’ve seen a revival and renewed interest in the art form in recent years. People have fallen in love with the added texture and depth that letterpress can give to a printed piece. Here on WDL, we’ve showcased letterpress business cards, but letterpress also works well for other types of printed material, such as invitations. Invitations need to look great in order to entice the recipient to attend an event, so the rich quality of letterpress printing is a great way to make a big impression. Here I’ve put together a showcase of letterpress invitations for inspiration.

    Beautiful work. I’ve bookmarked it for inspiration on some of my letterpress projects. I am curious where these people find the nice thick paper that leaves the deep impression. I haven’t been able to find any in Canada.

    Lovely, none of the printers around here offer smashing paper like that. Anyone know an online printer that offers something similar?

    These are all beautiful! I recently printed some invites too, and couldn’t find a good local source of that cotton paper. Anyone know where I could find it in Canada?
