Best Letterpress Printer

  • Foxy & Winston

    392 Van Brunt St., Red Hook; 718-928-4855

    Everyone who cares about design seems to want wedding invitations made with letterpress printing—the old-style craft printing that shows the bite of type into thick paper. And every happy couple discovers the same thing: It costs a fortune, easily topping $2,000 for a set of even basic invitations.

One-color letterpress save-the-date cards are $525 for 100; two-color letterpress invitations are $660 for 100.
