First off the Press

MyWeddingz is soon to launch a Letterpress stationery range. Using this almost extinct method gives you a fantastic vintage debossed effect, each item is truly unique.

The first letterpress was invented by Johanes Gutenberg in the 1400's. From the mid-15th century until the 19th century, letterpress was the normal method of printing posters and books. It remained in wide use until the second half of the 20th century.

This is the pilot Save the Date card. It is made from 100% recycled cotton rag paper, hemp twine and printed with gold. It comes with a coordinating envelope pressed with 'Good News'
