Custom Couture Letterpress Invitations and Announcements
At Prairie Flower Press, we don't create invitations . . . we create works of art worthy of your special occasion. An invitation is the "opening act" for your special event . . .
announce it with elegant style.
We specialize in fine letterpress couture and custom wedding stationery for the discerning bride and groom. Whether your style is modern chic, traditional elegance, or vintage charm, we will design a wedding invitation ensemble that truly reflects your individual style.
If you have never experienced fine letterpress, it is the perfect union of vintage printing techniques and modern graphic design technology. Your unique design is created using the latest digital software, from which a printing plate is created and mounted on our century-old Chandler and Price printing press. Every piece is hand-fed individually into the press. When the press closes, the text and artwork are embedded or "pressed" into the paper, giving letterpress its luxurious and distinctive dimensional look and feel.
All of our letterpress is printed on thick environmentally friendly 100% cotton or bamboo papers . . . or for a spectacularly luxurious look, we letterpress museum board with beveled and gilded edges. Choose from our extensive library of colored inks, or let us custom match any color in the Pantone color library.
We then embellish these beauties with genuine Swarovski crystals, colorful Midori silk ribbon, or elegant crystal brooches or buckles.
Your luxury wedding invitation can then be enclosed in an envelope lined with colorful Japanese chiyogami paper . . . or a beautiful invitation box covered in elegant Thai silk (but beware, we have over 100 colors of silk to choose from). Alternatively, enclose your invitation in a genuine Envelopments pocketfold or custom made fabric folio book with a custom monogram.
Finally, we can complete your wedding stationery ensemble with custom designed menus, programs, placecards, and thank you notes.
