Save 20% on your letterpress needs!  In my life, letterpress is so beautiful and gorgeous that it is a necessity!  Yeah, I said it! :p
I’ll be giving a 20% discount to anyone who orders letterpress from May 15 thru June 15…a whole month!  And it can be custom orders too, so don’t be shy!  Letterpress is the way to go…here are the different things you can use it for:
1. Wedding invitations (set the mood & give guests a first impression of how your wedding will be)
2. Birthday party invitations / Birthday cards (create a custom look for your own party or create your own personalized set)
3. “I’m Moving to a Great New Place” cards (tell your close friends where your moving to so they can update their address book)
4. Bespoke Stationery (pretty self explanatory)
5. Gift tags (add a little personal touch)
6. Coasters (These are really awesome)
7. Party Favors (either as the party favors, see #6, or part of the party favors, see #7…hahaha!)
8. Challenge me! 
Pretty much, I want to have people who don’t know about letterpress not be so afraid of the costs and the process…They turn out beautifully!  Anyway, I hope my “different things you can use it for” helped letterpress-phobia people to change their minds and order some…even if not from me, go seek it out! This is an art form…ahhhhh!

I used to work at an art gallery and part of my job was to coordinate monthly events.  One such event was to organize a book signing for Peggy Dark of the Kitchen.  She has a catering business in Pasadena, CA and her food is amazing and amazingly beautiful.  The Kitchen collaborated with Mark’s Garden, a celebrity florist, on a book called “Fabulous Parties”.  The images in the book and images from their launch party was amazing! ahhhh…if I did my wedding all over again, this would definitely be my inspiration!
