At Hartford Prints!, we specialize in urban, clean, minimal, and modern letterpress wedding invitations.
Hartford Prints! is an urban goods brand that is all about handmade and homegrown love. Addy (Older Sister), Callie (Middle Sister), and Rory (Younger Sister) joined forces in 2012 to create letterpress stationery that is modern and fun. Very quickly, our printing prowess, killer style, and graphic genius grew our family. Today, at Hartford Prints! you can shop for stunning wedding invitations, offbeat greeting cards, urban streetwear, and one-of-a-kind gifts. And with the opening of our flagship store in downtown Hartford in 2013, Hartford Prints! embraces the idea that a company can both make and do good things. We strive to be an active space, using the power of our press to create positive vibes about our local community. Come visit us, we think you’ll want to be part of the fam too!
At Hartford Prints! our designs are always a collaboration over many iced coffees and multiple Pinterest boards. We use the humor that our mom gave us and our dad’s attention to detail to bring our stationery and designs to life, blending illustration, hand-lettering, and modern graphics. We print everything by hand in our studio on our trusty Vandercook 4T and spend countless hours lining envelopes, and telling stories!
Our process is more “hands on” than ordering invitations from a stationer or online, since we are a letterpress company and everything we do is custom designed by us. Letterpress is an old-fashioned form of relief printing all done by hand, so our work is truly a labor of love. Since we create truly unique designs, we work with all of our clients to understand your style, the look and feel of your wedding and then customize our designs to fit your needs.
After sitting down for an initial consultation over coffee or wine, phone or Skype, we will put together a budget estimate. At the time of your approval of the estimate, we will send you a contract, an invoice for a 50% non-refundable deposit, and a design timeline. We will work with your schedule to get the first digital (PDF) proofs of your fabulous designs to you in a timely fashion, to be agreed upon by you, the client, and us. There are then up to three rounds of free edits included in the estimate. Once we have your final approval, we will begin printing and assembling your order. All of our clients are encouraged to come by the studio during the printing process to watch, learn, laugh, dance, snap some photos, and have an awesome time!
