Eco-friendly wedding announcements

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

We have had so much interest in green printing for weddings that we have decided to devote a section on the website to eco-friendly wedding invitation packages. This section will include pricing for several options of standard wedding announcements and envelopes using high post-consumer waste content recycled papers and soy inks, as well as letterpress invitation options. Our new account manager, Jennifer Brauer, is managing the project, and plans to include links to eco-friendly resources for other aspects of wedding planning, such as catering and flowers. This feature should go live soon, but in the meantime please contact Jennifer for a custom quote.

Eco-friendly wedding invitations

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

You may not know that Raleigh’s original eco-friendly printer offers letterpress printing on recycled paper for wedding announcements and invitations, calling cards and other green printing projects. We use the same soy inks and recycled papers to print small runs of hand-crafted, green printing projects on our mid century Chandler-Price letterpress that we employ on our five-color offset printing press.

Low waste and a low hourly rate combine to make short runs of letterpress printing affordable and eco-friendly, and the nature of the feeder on the letterpress allows for a wider range of papers, including recycled kraft chipboard. The letterpress plate embosses while it prints, producing a wonderful old-school, craftsman-like feel to the printed page. Talk to us about ways to use the letterpress to make your project more unique.
