TULALOO: affordable letterpress
Letterpress is lovely. It is textural and soft and adds a touch of subtly luxury to wedding stationery. Letterpress printing is an art form, and the cost is reflective of that. If
your budget allows, letterpress wedding invitations are worth every penny. But, let's be real here - not every wedding budget is going to include letterpressed stationery. Flat printing is a perfectly acceptable altrnative, and can be perfect for formal events if you and your stationer work together to choose the right papers, colors and designs (a specialty of ours here at Tulaloo - we are great on a budget!). But if you really, really LOVE letterpress, but can't afford to have your entire invitation suite printed this way, consider having just part of your invitation letterpressed!By having just the invitation letterpressed, with the remaining pieces such as the reply card and envelopes flat printed, you will save quite a bit of money. Tulaloo recently created an invitation suite this way for Angela and Robin. Their ivory and blue, garden themed wedding begged for a letterpress invitation, and by flat printing the coordinating elements we were able to create this at a price point that fit their budget.
Almost all of the designs in our Wedding Collection are available in letterpress. If you are interested in this option please contact us for a quote!
Congratulations to Angela and Robin who were married on Friday!
