A Printable Press

I love wedding invitations! A wedding invitation sets the tone of a couple’s wedding and allows guests to envision the big day. And what better way to do so, then with affordable, unique and high-end designs from our sponsor A Printable Press .

A Printable Press was created as an alternative to expensive stationery, but also as an alternative to the totally-from-scratch, do-it-yourself approach. Along with offering affordable printed cards on thick eco-friendly paper, they also offer customized print-ready files. These files can be taken anywhere—a copy shop, at home, with a professional printer, online, and some can even be letterpressed. Professional invitations designed to suit any budget and bride!

A Printable Press’s motto is “everyone deserves good design” and as such, they want to share with two Once Wed readers  $250 worth of wedding stationary! To enter to win, leave a comment at the end of the post. Make sure you check our their site to see all their design goodies.
