Wedding Invitation Suites – Budgeting Tip

Tip: There are many ways to help reduce the cost of stationery printing.  With letterpress printing, by keeping the artwork simple with less colour means the less times the cards have to be processed through the press which reduces the set up cost.  You can also reduce cost by using the same printing plate across multiple items.  Ask us about our stationery bundle deals too!
