If you want family and friends to save the date, not dread it, make a great impression with letterpress wedding announcements and invitations. Peter Kruty Editions combines the old-fashioned method of printing with today's technology to produce beautiful, timeless works. Using traditional or contemporary typefaces, the team here can develop a custom design for you—take advantage of its library of historic 19th- and early-20th-century illustrations and metal cuts, mounted on wood—or you can come ready with your own creation. Everything is scanned and rendered to a digital file whose contents are imprinted on a photopolymer plate, the impression of which gives paper its textured feel. Soho Letterpress takes pride in its ability to tailor every detail to a client's needs and its fast turnaround time. Many images of NYC icons, even hand-drawn taxis and buses, are available, should your theme complement your cosmopolitan celebration. And as if modern letterpress cards weren't sophisticated enough, you can increase the fancy factor with the studio's painted-edge invitations and lined envelopes.
