Customization Options

INK COLOR

no additional cost

When it comes to color choice, we have a little something for everyone! We are happy to customize any of our designs with your choice of ink color from our selection guide below. Looking for a shade you don’t see here? We are happy to custom mix a letterpress color from a paint chip, fabric swatch or Pant one number for a flat fee of $50.

Please keep in mind that all ink colors may differ when letterpress printed and that computer screens or inkjet print do not provide the most accurate representations of our ink colors. Want to be sure of a close match? We are happy to send samples so you can view the color in person before you commit

Envelope Colors

Looking for an added pop of color? We also offer a selection of solid matte envelope colors to give your suite a little extra something. Our colored envelopes are not made by Crane and have a slightly different composition than our standard envelopes. They also only come with European, rather than traditional pointed flaps (see below). Colored envelopes are an additional $30 per set, for a more detailed price breakdown, please visit our pricing page here. For color options, please note the envelope marker in the above color chart indicating a coordinating envelope and ink color. Please note, envelopes may not be an exact match for the ink color and may be a shade lighter or darker. In addition to the above options we also offer light kraft and true kraft colored envelopes for a more natural look.

PAPER COLOR

no additional cost

We are proud to exclusively offer Crane’s Lettra paper stock to our clients. Why do we love Lettra? Well, for starters it was created specifically for letterpress printers. It is soft enough to absorb a deep, luxe impression, but tough enough to feel weighty and substantial in your hand. We also love Lettra because it is tree free and uses only reclaimed cotton fibers- as green as it gets when it comes to paper. Lettra offers three lovely shades to choose from:

PAPER WEIGHT

extra cost to upgrade

Crane’s Lettra comes in two paper weights: our standard 110lb/300gsm stock and an extra thick 220lb/600gsm alternative. We are happy to upgrade any or all of your cards to the 220lb option. The cost is $1 per card for pieces larger than A2 size (4.25 x 5.5) and $.50 per card for all card sizes A2 and smaller. To feel the difference yourself, we are happy to send samples of both paper weights!

PAPER SIZE

extra cost to upgrade

Our standard invitation sizes are A7 (5’’ x 7’’) and Baronial (5.25’’ x 5.25’’). There is no additional cost for choosing one or the other of these sizes, though not all Baronial invitations can be converted to A7 sized invitations. We are happy to increase the invitation paper size for an additional cost. A9 (5.5’’ x 8.5’’) and Marquis (7’’ x 7’’) sizes are $50 more for quantities up to 200. Most of our designs can be modified to fit the larger sized cards, but please inquire about possible exceptions.

WORDING

Personalize any of our invitation suites with wording that makes it your own. We are also happy to share our expertise and make wording recommendations for any of your pieces.

ROUNDED CORNERS

additional cost

Add a little extra something to your invitations with corner-rounding. Almost all of our suites printed on 110lb stock can have rounded corners. The cost is $0.40 per card.

ENVELOPE PRINTING

additional cost

We also offer envelope customization with letterpress return address or digital guest address printing. Choose just one method or both to complete the look of your suite.

LETTERPRESS- With letterpress envelope printing we can include both the return address on the flap of the invitation envelope (or the mailing address on the reply card envelope), as well as a design element/image from your suite. The cost is the same whether we are printing just the address or an embellishing graphic to tie the whole look together. For this print method we charge $1 per envelope. Please note that not all colored envelopes can be printed. Please inquire for any exceptions.

DIGITAL- If you select digital envelope printing we can digitally print your guest addresses on each invitation envelope. We can only digitally print on the invitation envelope, not on the reply card, thank you or save the date envelopes. We are happy to match the fonts and color of the digital envelope printing to your suite. Included with the guest address is the return address printed in the upper left corner of the envelope only. We cannot digitally print the return address on the flap of the envelope. We cannot digitally print any graphics or design elements from your suite, this can only be done with letterpress. For this print method we charge $.75 per envelope. We also require special formatting for your guest addresses. To download our excel template, please click here.

ENVELOPE LINERS

additional cost

We do not offer custom envelope liners at the moment. However, we do offer pre-printed liners from our supplier, PaperMojo.com. Any option over 70gsm from their classic, casual, abstract or designer lines that isn't flocked or marbled can be used. For solid liners please inquire. Liners are always $2 per envelope.

FONT OPTIONS

no additional cost

We are a little type-crazy over here at the Aerialist Press and so we have culled the very best fonts to include in our library for you to choose from. We are happy to use as many or as few font options as you like in your invitation suite! Feel free to choose from our roman, display and script selection to find the perfect fit.
