What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
All custom print jobs have custom costs. To determine these, we need to know how many invitations you'll need, whether you'll need response cards and envelopes, your deadline or mailing, and your budget.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
As I studied Printmaking, I fell in love particularly with letterpress. The hands-on process of registering and printing on a Vandercook makes my heart happy. After designing and printing my own wedding invitations, I realized I wanted to provide that experience for other couples.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
One of our most recent invitation suites was created for a couple who are the #1 and #2 biggest fans of the Warriors. With a basketball-themed wedding and full reign over the design concept, we had our work cut out for us! The result? Vintage basketball tickets for each guest, housed in a ticket folder for each household. The tickets were complete with perforated "ticket stubs" for the RSVPs.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Letterpress is a very specialized printing method. It's important that our clients understand that the process involves costly materials and a lot of manual labor. That being said, we at Press 65, are proud to work with the budget of our clients.
