Who doesn't love invitations? Here at Skyhawk Press, we absolutely LOVE them. Maybe a little too much. In fact, after designing our own wedding invitations we thought that we might be onto something. Armed with our own set of Chandler & Price presses from the early 1900's, we're ready to print.
So what is Letterpress? According to wisegeek, "Letterpress printing is a printing technique which has been in use in the West since the 15th Century, when it was used by Johannes Gutenberg to manufacture the Gutenberg Bible. There has been some debate over whether letterpress printing was first developed in the East or West, with some suggestions that Chinese texts were printed using a similar method before the Gutenberg Bible. Letterpress printing remained the primary way to print and distribute information until the twentieth century, when offset printing was developed. It was also an extremely important technological innovation, making printed material available to a wider range of classes of people."
Here at Skyhawk Press we deal exclusively with the letterpress style of invitation. We use only the finest Crane Letterpress papers (though at 100% cotton they aren't technically made of 'paper' per se) and custom designs to add a touch of class to any event. Below are some samples that we recently completed for customers. Names have been standardized.
We are also proud to announce that we are listed as a "preferred vendor" by Port Gamble Weddings. Check out their website to plan your next event.
Send us an email with any questions that you may have or to set up an appointment to meet and discuss your upcoming event.
We can do the following types of invitations: Engagements, Weddings, Birthdays, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Christenings, Birth Announcements, Anniversaries, Retirements, Promotions.
