New Letterpress Wedding Invite Giveway & Winner Announcement!

Our next giveaway is perfect for Spring! Our Orleans design, based on the wood inlay on a piece of 18th century French furniture.

First off, a big thank you to everyone who entered our competition! We continue to be thankful for all the support we have gotten as we start out and grow our letterpress business.

Second, to everyone else who entered our contest, don’t despair, WE ARE HAVING ANOTHER GIVEAWAY!!! So, please re-enter. To enter the giveaway please email your name to caroline@pressedinbrooklyn. In fact, we will be having quite a few giveaways as we need to letterpress all of our designs for samples.

Third, we have a winner. Congratulations,  EMMA & MIKE. We look forward to creating beautiful invitations for your special day!

This time round, we are offering our Orleans design. Perfect for Spring, it is named for and inspired by the intricate wood inlay work on a beautiful piece of 18th century French furniture. Same as last time, we will be giving away 20 free letterpress invitations and 20 free letterpress RSVP cards. Envelopes will not be included. However, we will provide you with the dimensions and a link to where you can purchase matching envelopes. We plan to letterpress this invitation on bright white, 118lb Savoy paper. We are not exactly set on color yet, although we think the pink and grey combo is lovely. We are also not completely decided on font yet either, although the ornate script does look very nice. Also, same as before, the invites and RSVP cards are totally FREE, the only cost will be shipping. The only catch? You need to be ok with us photographing the invitations for use on our site. Of course, if you require more than 20 of each item, you can certainly purchase more.

The deadline for entering this giveaway is April 13th and we will announce a winner on April 18th. We will go to press at the end of April, so the winner will receive their invites by early to mid-May.

New Letterpress Wedding Invite Giveway & Winner Announcement From Our Last Wedding Giveaway!

Our Mayfair invitation. The next design we will be giving away to one lucky winner! Pictured here is a flat print version of the design.

First off, a big thank you to everyone who entered our competition! We continue to be thankful for all the support we have gotten as we start out and grow our letterpress business.

Second, to everyone else who entered our contest, don’t despair, WE ARE HAVING ANOTHER GIVEAWAY!!! So, please re-enter. To enter the giveaway please email your name to caroline@pressedinbrooklyn. In fact, we will be having quite a few giveaways as we need to letterpress all of our designs for samples.

Third, we have a winner. Congratulations, VERONICA M. We look forward to creating beautiful invitations for your special day!

This time round, we are offering our Mayfair design. Classic and clean, it is named for and inspired by an upscale neighborhood in London. Same as last time, we will be giving away 20 free letterpress invitations and 20 free letterpress RSVP cards. Envelopes will not be included. However, we will provide you with the dimensions and a link to where you can purchase matching envelopes. We plan to letterpress this invitation on bright white, 118lb Savoy paper, with black ink. The name of the couple and RSVP will be in the ornate script as shown in all the photos. However, we have yet to decide if we will print the small text in the ornate font as shown or in the more modern, sans-serif  AnoHalf font, which can be seen as font Sans 1 in our Wedding Invitation Catalogue for reference. Also, same as before, the invites and RSVP cards are totally FREE, the only cost will be shipping. The only catch? You need to be ok with us photographing the invitations for use on our site. Of course, if you require more than 20 of each item, you can certainly purchase more. Also, we have been experimenting with the use of Swarovski crystals on this design. This giveaway does NOT include the crystals, but if you would like to upgrade and purchase the crystal option, you will certainly have that option.

The deadline for entering this giveaway is March 20th and we will announce a winner on March 23rd. We will go to press at the beginning of April, so the winner will receive their invites by mid-April.

Inspired to make a pie chart fun!

If only all pie charts were this exciting!

For many years I worked at a financial company, designing and editing financial reports, drawing I don’t know how many millions of pie charts, fever charts and bar charts. Over and over, showing profit, loss, amount of product sold…I could go on and on. However, at Pressed, we are free to take the stale, old pie chart and add some excitement to it! You can see the result in these photos. I bet all of you are excited to see what we have in store for the boring, old fever chart 🙂 We hand printed these letter press cards on a Vandercook, which reminds me…we plan to do a print run this Friday, we will post photos of what goes into making these cards. They are all hand-made, printed individually and very much a labor of love.
