Photo Adhering 
Our announcements are letterpress printed, with a photo mounted/adhered to the card. We would be happy to print and cut the photos for you, to any custom size. If you prefer to have the photo digitally printed instead, that's no problem.

At this time, we are not offering photo-adhering services. However, we will share some tips & tricks to make it easy, as we find most customers prefer to do it themselves.

Any paper glue will work, but this is one of our favorites. You can also find it on Amazon, or any local craft store. One bottle is all you need, and just a few drops will do the trick. You can quickly adjust as necessary to line it up perfectly before it is fully dry.

 

Paper Options
1ply is 110# weight, standard cardstock - same as our personal stationery. 2ply is 220#, double the weight, giving you a very nice, substantial card. You do not need extra postage for 2ply cards as long as they are A6 (4.5"x 6.25"). Please keep in mind square-shaped cards do require extra postage. 

If you would like a digital photo printed on the back of a letterpress printed card with 110# weight, we will press carefully, to avoid the impression showing through on the back.

 

How long will my order take?
We require a proof be approved before we order your letterpress plates and begin printing. We typically have an initial proof within five (5) business days. Printing will take approximately three (3) weeks after proof approval.

 

Please keep in mind we love adding personal touches, and the customization options are endless!
