Everyone loves the aesthetic quality and charming allure of** letterpress printing**. The deep impressions and understated elegance of **letterpress **wedding invitations are so unique that it cannot be produced by any other printing method. However, as is the case with many high quality products, there is a belief that letterpress printing costs a great deal more. But this does not always have to be the case.

4 DIY...

Instead of ordering envelope liners or pre-addressed envelopes, consider **doing this yourself **and spending your savings on something else.

5 Cut the Guest List...

Cut the Guest List...Something that will save you money at every level of your wedding, cutting the number of guests you invite can also greatly reduce your overall letterpress wedding invitation costs. While you might like the idea of inviting every great uncle and third cousin twice removed, cutting even a couple people will help ease the costs of your entire wedding celebration.

6 Mix and Match...

Mix and Match...Mixing offset printing, a traditionally less expensive printing method with letterpress printing is a brilliant way to save money. Consider printing your wedding invitations with letterpress and the less important items like the RSVP postcard or envelopes with offset printing. You can use the same colors, styles and fonts throughout, and the savings will add up.

7 Black & White is Beautiful...

Black & White is Beautiful...The mark of classical letterpress wedding invitation designs,** black ink** with white paper is much simpler and less expensive than an invitation set with multiple colors. If you want to enjoy the beauty of letterpress printing but are trying to cut back on costs, instead of multiple colors consider a black and white sincere yet sophisticated letterpress wedding invitation design.
