We at D & J drink coffee - lots and LOTS of coffee. And we got to thinking, why not give something back to our local coffee joint? As we started thinking about expanding into new materials, we did a test run of coffee koozies for our the nearby Round Table Coffee Works. Now the locally-roasted fresh brew looks as good as it tastes :) Keep a lookout for us - we might be around your favorite coffee cup, next!
Dick and Jane Letterpress offers the nations most affordable letterpress printing. Our up-front, no-hassle pricing offers brides a quick and easy browsing/shopping experience. Select your favorite design, view our prices, get a quote... it's that simple! Here are a few general rules of thumb when considering all the different sizes.
1. An A7 is the most common size for Wedding Invitations. 2. An A1 is the most common size for your rsvp. 3. While an RSVP postcard is definitely super cool - it can often be more expensive than a standard A1 and envelope because a postcard usually requires printing on both sides. 4. Can you switch up sizes for something more outside the norm... ABSOLUTELY. Just be sure to consider envelope size restrictions. 5. Accompanying cards can come in any size you want. It all depends on how much info you want to fit.
Dick and Jane Letterpress wishes you all a great wedding day!
The perfect addition to the letterpress blog. These letterpress wedding invitations are one of our favorites of the year! The design and printing were commissioned by Bill and Moira for their February wedding. They had a birch and snow idea in mind. As it so happened, one of our designers had just been in the process of sketching up a birch tree design! We made a few revisions and incorporated a flurry of snow using the couples wedding colors. Custom designed by Dick and Jane Letterpress, these invitations turned out completely out of the world. Have a look!
"Ecru Paper" is starting to emerge as a recent customer favorite!?!? Time and again, customers choose the Pearl Lettra paper for their letterpress invitations but as of late, we've had nearly a half dozen couples choosing the Ecru route. Perhaps is has something to do with early bird fall weddings? Then again, maybe it's something else? Maybe the Ecru paper offers that classic antique look that many traditional (and sometimes non-traditional) invitations need to put the design over the top? In any case, here's a quick snapshot taken from my iPhone of a recent invitation job featuring the use of Ecru paper and #10 policy envelopes.
Much love and appreciation goes out to Jon and Michelle. Have a great wedding day!.

- "...we were really able to express ourselves creatively with the two owners, who listened to us, offered their input, and made some really beautiful cards."
- "The invitation cards were perfect. My favorite part would be the save the date cards, which was a picture of a calendar. It was something unique and original that I just hadn’t seen before, and really loved. They really have so much to choose from, so much originality, that I think every bride should make them their first stop."
