Letterpress Wedding Invitations by Ajalon Printing & Design
At Ajalon Printing & Design, we’re a small, but diverse, group that agrees on one thing – we dig letterpress printing! Sure, we’ve done the business cards and brochure thing, but nothing beats creating something special for a bride.
Our shop is nestled in the heart of picturesque Sonoma County wine country, where we have been providing exquisite, artisan printing services for over 50 years.
Our talented and creative staff will guide you through your invitation printing process. Drawing from years of experience, we can provide you with fresh and innovative ideas to make your invitation memorable and a true work of art.

I'm so glad I found this place. I had a definite vision for how I wanted the invitations for our art deco wedding to look. Trish sent us samples and, after our initial phone consultation, sent us more samples so that we could choose the perfect ink color. The invitations turned out perfectly!Sent on 02/15/2017

To say that Trish at Ajalon has good customer service would be an understatement- we ran into a few issues throughout the process and all were handled so incredibly professionally and promptly with great attention to detail. She was a joy to communicate with and always answered my questions or issues promptly. The invitations turned out absolutely beautiful and the options that are given for the invitation styles and writing is really endless. I am so happy with the end product and feel like the invites really give a true glimpse into what kind of wedding I will be putting on and helps to showcase the importance of the big day. I highly recommend working with Trish on all of your invite needs- she has great advice and understands the process from beginning to end.Sent on 08/06/2015

I started looking for invitations in January for an early March wedding. Needless to say, I was super late to the process. Trish at Ajalon SAVED THE DAY. She was so awesome! She got me pricing super fast and then the turnaround for everything was way faster than expected. She even sent out the envelopes early so that I could get a head start on addressing them. I legitimately wanted all the options and all the styles because they're all gorgeous! The colors were so perfect for letterpress and it was way more affordable than most other places. The look and feel of the invites were scrumptious. The quality of the invitations and the customer service was incredible. I was so nervous to buy invitations online but they sent me so many samples, and they answered all of my questions, that the process was easy. Highly recommend!!!Sent on 04/21/2016
