A true deckle edge vs. a torn edge?
The delicate look of a deckle edge is so easy to love. But did you know it’s not just a torn edge on the paper? A true deckle edge is formed in the paper-making process, when the paper pulp squeezes out between between the screen holding the wet pulp and the deckle (the frame that defines the sheet size). Creating the perfect deckle is an art unmatched by a simple edge tear.⠀


What do I need to know about hand cancelling my postage?

There’s a great post here that I think will be helpful.

Can we handle a tight deadline?
We can do our best to accommodate your timeline. But sometimes there just isn’t time for the custom design process. That’s why we’ve got some beautiful semi-custom designs that are quicker and more cost-effective.


Where are we?
We’re in Yorba Linda, in north Orange County, California. We can do local in-person consultations as well as long distance over Skype, Face Time, email or the old fashioned telephone. Most of our contact is via email, so distance never ends up being an issue.


How much does it cost?
There are so many variables, from quantity, paper and number of ink colors, to type of printing process and other add-ons. It’s best to fill out the semi-custom or custom inquiry form and let us provide you with a quote.


What’s different about semi custom and custom invitations?

Semi custom designs can be seen on the semi-custom page and produced using the elements listed on the customization page. It’s a faster and more simplified option. They’re pre-designed and more budget friendly. Semi-custom includes a single proof for your feedback. If you’d like other paper or ink options with the semi custom designs, just ask! We’re happy to discuss any ideas you may have.

In contrast, the custom design process begins with a conversation about your wedding dreams, from which we create a package uniquely for you. The sky’s the limit, using any paper option or printing techniques available—custom crests or wax seals, hand illustrated venues or wreaths, custom watercolors. Three rounds of emailed proofs are included with the custom process. Just fill out the custom design inquiry form to get started.


I’ve designed my invitations, can you just print them?

Sure. We’ll need to see your art to see what format it’s in and if it will work with the printing process(es) you’re hoping to use. We can provide a quote once we see it. Please know you are 100% responsible for content and size specs when you opt to supply your own design files. Make sure you are supplying a file that has been proofed and proofed again—both for typos and print size. Several pairs of eyes are better than one. We are not responsible for errors arising from client supplied files.

Does The Bridal Press print acrylic invitations?

Acrylic invitations are a popular item, however I choose not to provide them. Aside from my personal preference, I can’t in good conscience contribute to the mountains of non-biodegrade waste. Acrylic resin is a group 7 plastic and not readily collected for recycling. I strive to be a good steward for the planet so acrylic is not on my list of provided mediums.
