Write one to your soon-to-be or consider giving these as unique wedding invitations, favors or thank you cards to guests!  I mean really, who wouldn’t love to receive one of these darling treasures?

Here’s how it works:  You write a letter and it is transcribed onto tiny stationary with a magical transcription device.  The letter then goes into a see-through folded coin case and is packaged up with a magnifying glass in a larger glassine envelope, finished off with a wax seal.  It is put in a sturdy mailer for shipping.”Leafcutter Designs

What is letterpress?  “The art of letterpress involves inking raised type and then impressing it directly onto the printing surface. The result is an impression that you can see and feel.” – Denise Johnson 

This gorgeous design can also be printed in the colors curry and brown!   Choose from several different pieces to complete your perfect invitation.  Want to get a feel before you order your invitations?  Get yourself a sample by clicking HERE.

Brides, if you love the look but you’re on a tighter budget, no worries.  Consider the option of printing digital instead!  Digital printing is also a faster option if you’re in a bit more of a hurry.
