I went to this wonderful workshop this morning, which was put on by Kent Aldrich at the Nomadic Press in Saint Paul, and it showed how to print up text with an old-fashioned letter-press. Letter-press produces documents that have three-dimensional raised ink, all created by hand. The result is very old-fashioned and classy.
Kent has been in business for about 20 years and does absolutely gorgeous work on letter presses (some of which are more than 100 years old!). He’s a really nice guy and very easy to work with. You will need to have your invitations designed before Kent prints them. I suggest working with Kathy Forss at Daisy Mae Design. Kathy does clean, contemporary, beautiful design work and is really friendly and fun.
The possibilities for wedding invitations are amazing! The Nomadic Press doesn’t have a website (isn’t that odd? They’re very old-school), but they’re located at 878 Stryker Ave in St Paul, MN, and their phone number is (651) 291-1454.
Would you please feature them in your blog?
Dear Julie (I mean, YF),
Thank you, my darling, I would love to feature them. I hope my readers like the letterpress invitations as much as you do!
