Commissioned Invitations Q & A


Am I the right match to work with Ladyfingers Letterpress?

Are you one of us? Did you plan a wedding just so you could send out invitations? Is finding a stationer the first order of business in your wedding planning? Do you like to sniff the ink of a new book, or find yourself running your fingers over the impressions in soft cotton paper like you're in a scene from Amélie? Would you like your guests to recall your wedding by saying things like, "It was so beautiful! They are perfect for each other! AND CAN YOU BELIEVE THOSE INVITATIONS?!”

We are not like other wedding stationers. You’ll see from our line of greeting cards and our social media that we’re activists and makers, dreamers and doers. We fell into this line of work in 2010 when we were planning our own wedding and suffered through both the aesthetic and LGBTQ+ injustices at the time. We came here to make things better and more beautiful. We came here to do the things no one had ever done before. And we came here to make it look fucking fabulous.

We are a small and intimate operation. We are not an invitation factory. (Those exist, and it’s not us). Our talents are limited only by the number of hours in the day, and for that reason it is important that we match with the right kinds of clients. Our services begin at $5,000 no matter the amount of invitations, with the majority of our projects falling between $10,000 and $20,000.

So if you’re the kind of person who wants the invitation on Pinterest that everyone else tries to copy, or wants to work with a team of affirming stationers who won’t assume pronouns or that you’re a cis hetero couple, we might be the right match for you.



How long does it take?

Normally, jobs can take around 3 months, but be sure to contact us in advance since our availability is limited. We offer expedited timelines for dates that are soon approaching for a rush fee, so contact us immediately to secure your spot on our calendar. Reserve your time in our calendar by contacting us today.



I saw an invitation that you designed that I would love for my own wedding. Is this possible?

Ladyfingers Letterpress only creates one-of-a-kind invitations that suit our clients' individual tastes. Each commissioned suite is an opportunity to get to know our clients better and create something that truly speaks to the unique nature of their love. Our promise to our clients is that the invitation suite that we make for you will never be used for anyone else, and we uphold this promise as we continue our work with other clients. If you are interested in a suite that we have made, we encourage you to get in touch with us so that we can begin our personalized service to create something just as awe-inspiring and one-of-a-kind as the work you see in our galleries.



Do you work with clients who live outside the US?

Yes! It is no problem at all to work with non-US clients. We've worked with people from all over the globe; from Germany to China to Australia to the Philippines. Sure, shipping may cost a little more, but we are happy to work with anyone who appreciates our work. 


Ready to begin the process?

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
