Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

How do I place an order?

Visit the collection page for the stationery item you’re interested in ordering (wedding invitations, note cards, business cards...).

From there you'll view our collections' designs, learn about our ordering process and can review our pricing.

Can I stop by to pick out a design or look at samples?

We’d love to meet you but because we work on antique machines in a small Brooklyn studio, we can’t safely invite guests to stop by when the presses are running. To make the ordering process convenient for everyone, we’ve moved our designs online and have crafted a system to walk you through the process of ordering your custom stationery. If you’re local, you’re welcome to stop by to pick up your order when it’s finished.

If I place an order online, will I see a sample before you print it?

Once we receive your order, we will lay out your design and email you a pdf to review. You will have the opportunity to make changes or ask questions before we finalize the design and move on to letterpress printing. Because the press set up process is lengthy on our old machines, we don't offer letterpress printed proofs. If we get to the end of our design process and you're uneasy or unsure of how the finished prints will look, we encourage you to give us a call so we can talk through any questions you may have.

What’s the turnaround time if I place an order?

The turn around time for orders (excluding wedding invitations) is generally 2-3 weeks.
If you have a particularly tight deadline, let us know in advance so we can confirm whether we can meet it. 

Wedding stationery design and printing takes longer and we encourage people to reach out 6-8 weeks before they plan to mail their wedding invitations.

Do you do rush orders?

We can occasionally turn around a note card order in a week (we can’t print any quicker than that) but you should reach out to us in advance before placing an order online if your deadline is less than 3 weeks.

Can I send you a design to print?

Yes, we love having the opportunity to print other designers’ work! You can visit our Print Your Own Design page for pricing and details on how this process works.

Do you only print letterpress?

Yes. We only have the machines to print letterpress. We do not do any foil printing. We do not do digital printing.

I have an idea for a project. How do I get a quote?

The quickest way to get pricing is to review it on our website. If your project fits into one of our collection categories (wedding, note cards, business cards, print your own design), you can visit those pages to view the pricing. If the project is something else, you can contact us with the details for a quote.
