Starshaped Press

Our Wedding Invite Collection

All of the designs here feature many of the incredible antique typefaces we have in the studio, as well as borders, ornaments and illustrations. Below are pdf catalogs of the four aesthetic styles we currently offer, along with pricing info.

We highly recommend samples; our invites aren’t like the other letterpress work out there because we work with 19th century materials and not modern printing plates. Sample packs are available on our etsy site here.

Due to the nature of our old-timey process and our other projects, we are only able to accommodate a certain number of invitations each year. If you can’t live without us (and we’re flattered), please book early…preferably 3-5 months before you need them.

PLEASE NOTE! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR NEW-TIMEY LETTERPRESS WITH DIGITALLY CREATED DESIGNS PRESSED HEAVILY INTO THICK COTTON PAPER, WE ARE NOT THE STUDIO FOR YOU! If you are looking for something more offbeat, quirky or vintage, we just might be a great fit.

City of Big Ornaments

Chicago is our kind of town, but New York might be yours. Or San Francisco. Or Detroit. These architecturally-minded invitations build a city, one ornament at a time, proving God does, indeed, live in the details.

Yes We Can Can

Can you? These invitations feature our typefaces that are so old they may have passed their youth sipping absinthe at the Moulin Rouge. If they weren’t busy advertising it, that is.
