New 2014 Postage Rates

2014 Postage Rate Increase via DelphineThe USPS just raised rates for 2014! Here’s a quick guide to new 2014 Postage rates as they apply to most wedding invitations:

  • Letter, Save the date, Reply Envelope (with single reply card inside), Single card/invitation: 49 cents
  • Invitation set (invitation, reply card, reply envelope, and another card or two, up to 2 oz.): 70 cents
  • Postcard (size 6in x 4.25in or smaller): 34 cents
  • Any letter/card or invitation set (up to 2 oz.) to all international destinations: $1.15

Keep in mind: square envelopes/postcards, non-bendable envelopes, and extra thick envelopes don’t fit through the USPS machines, so there is an additional fee for being non-machinable — check with local post office for rates or use the usps’s handy postage price calculator. There are also additional fees for postage weighing over 2 ounces.

Besides buying stamps at your local post office, you can buy official USPS stamps online at USPS.com. There are lots of pretty ones to choose from. If you’re looking for something a bit more custom, check out Delphine’s Zazzle shop with stamps to match most of our invitation designs. If you don’t see what you’d like, or need the colors/monogram switched out just let us know and we’ll whip something up for you.

Turquoise and Black Edge Painted Letterpress Business Cards

black edge painted letterpress business cards for chloe aftel photographer by delphineEvery time Chloe Aftel calls I know the project is going to be special. This time around she asked us for a “pop of kick ass color” to go with her “rad new logo.” (Yes, she’s from LA). We delivered with shocking electric turquoise edge painted business cards.

chloe aftel photographer letterpress turquoise edge painted business cards by delphineI think the new branding is a spot on match to her photography style: powerful and slightly dreamy. The image at right is one of my personal favorites. It was part of a stellar collection commissioned by Levis. Please note: the crappy photos in this post are by me, not the super talented lady we’re discussing here. 

turquoise edge painted letterpress business cards for chloe aftel photographer by delphineThese letterpress cards are killer, right?! We printed them with our super super dark blackest black ink for a sharp, crisp impression; Reich Paper’s ultra thick SAVOY paper in brilliant white; tight edge painting on every.single.card; and lots and lots of clean white space.

I’d like to pause for a shout out to all our photographer clients for understanding the power of white space. We looooove youuuuu! 

Now go grab a bottle of wine and dive into Chloe’s portfolio and blog. Down, down the rabbit hole you go … enjoy!

Seagrams Wedding Invitations | Haute Off the Press

Seagrams Wedding Invitations via DelphineWe love this bold approach to wedding invitations with our Seagrams design. This design was inspired by the mid century modern Seagrams building in Manhattan, where Erika’s godmother worked for decades. It’s shown here flat printed here in red and gris. Right away guests will know that this isn’t going to be a traditional wedding. Fun and modern are the adjectives that come to mind … it’s killing me to know what the Seagrams bride has in store for her special, stand-out day!
