The Goosefish Press is a small letterpress and book arts studio located in South Boston. A privately owned, independent studio that specializes in designing and printing creatively conceived, carefully crafted and fully customized wedding invitations as well as producing handmade books and boxes, Goosefish Press can provide you with ideas and options for invitations and wedding stationery that you cannot find anywhere else.

The very nature of letterpress makes it totally distinctive from other forms of printing. It creates a tangible and physical difference in the paper. It is especially beautiful when used with heavyweight, textured papers. We work with you to develop a completely customized look, tailored to your tastes. Tell us the look you want and we do the rest. Goosefish Press can also collaborate with designers to expertly print their work. Read less

We used Goosefish Press for our save the dates, invitation suite (invitation, reply card, information insert, invitation envelope, reply card envelope), and design work for items to print elsewhere (thank you cards, menus, programs, welcome bag tags, signage). If you can get down to his shop in the South End, I highly recommend seeing his work in person and feeling the buttery paper (and his adorable shop dog Beetle certainly makes the trip worth it!).

From the get go, Rob is super easy to work with – even though I lived close by, most of my work with Rob was via email. I provided him with a ton of things that I liked, he took the time to understand what I was looking for, and then delivered a stunning design that we used throughout. He is responsive to emails be it design tweaks, wording adjustments, or whatever. Letterpress is not cheap, though the final bill ended up being way less than I expected (and friends thought we had spent twice what we did). But he also provides custom design work with yields truly unique invitations. He was also willing to do design work for things that we would get printed at a copy shop, which kept a consistent look throughout.

I very much recommend looking into letterpress with Goosefish Press – the product is a work of art.

Goosefish Press did an excellent job on our invitations. They came out beautiful, earlier than planned, and were under budget. We couldn't be happier! Rob's work is amazing and he was so helpful every step of the way. Highly recommend!

Rob at Goosefish Press was amazing to work with. He is professional, attentive and produces amazing work.

Before we started working with Rob, he offered to have a phone call with me since I live out of town to walk me through the invitation process at Goosefish and prices. He was very meticulous and wanted to ensure I had all the details that I needed. He was this way throughout the whole process. He made it very easy.

I gave Rob some design thoughts I had and he would come back with in 48 hours with multiple options. If I had any comments, he would tweak them within 24 hours. He was extremely responsive and never complained if I had a question or a comment. He was always willing to make any other edits that I wanted.

When we received our wedding invitations we were astounded. We had seen the designs through the whole process but were beyond amazed to see the final product in person. His attention to detail is impeccable and it shows in the final product.

After being so happy with our invitations, Rob designed our programs and menus and treated them just as he did the invitation. We received multiple comments on our invitations, menus and programs. Guests loved seeing all of these unique pieces come together since they were custom designs that he had created just for us.

Goosefish Press comes highly recommended from us. You will not be disappointed if you use them!

What's in an invitation? Everything! It sets the tone for the event of a lifetime. What sets Goosefish Press apart is quality, professionalism and customer service. I planned my Boston wedding from New York and in very little time. From the second my fiance and I walked into this shop we were impressed by the quality of each individualized invitation. Having a unique Bostonian invitation meant everything to me. Many reply cards came with comments on on how beautiful and classy they were and one friend said they were "so" me. Rob couldn't be faster in his turnaround either nor could he be a nicer person to deal with. I could not rave more about this special place or the service!

Rob has been, hands down, the best vendor I have worked with thus far to plan my wedding. I picked up my invites a few weeks ago and could not be happier. Not only does he do beautiful work - he does this work in a prompt and reliable fashion. He is extremely prompt over email - answering every question I had throughout the process. He is the best!

We wanted really simple elegant invitations but I really wanted to use pictures of animals for the meals on the RSVP cards and Rob at Goosefish Press was amazing at making our wedding invitation suite beautiful. It was simple, but the letterpress made that simplicity so gorgeous. I got exactly what I wanted, and it was roughly the same cost as non-letterpress on minted or a similar site.

The design work Rob did was also wonderful. He carried our fonts and themes through and designed our table numbers, ceremony programs, and escort cards. Absolutely fantastic!

Rob always responded to my emails quickly and professionally. Even when he wasn't able to get to my project right away he let me know how long the delay would be, which I really appreciated. And when we had some spelling issues (my fault not his) at the last minute, he fixed them right away, despite it being a holiday weekend.
I couldn't be happier with this vendor, if I need letter press in the future I would absolutely use him again! Thanks Rob for everything!

Rob at Goosefish Press is an amazing vendor to work with. If I could give him 10 stars in every category I would. He responds to emails within minutes with full details and more. His turn around time was impeccable, having designed, finalized and printed our invitations in less than two weeks. The best part about Goosefish Press is the price, very reasonable for the high quality of work you receive.

If you are looking for letterpress wedding invitations or any sort of custom design work, look no further. Rob is your man. I cannot say enough wonderful things about how professional, responsive, and flexible Rob is. I did an extensive search in the Boston area for wedding invitation sand I truly think that I found the best in Rob.

I like to think that I'm a "creative" person, however I lack the artistic talent needed to make my vision come to life. That's where Rob stepped in. He listened to what I wanted my Save the Date to look like, and he was able take my little drawings and turn them into a postcard that was such a huge hit with our guests. Also, Rob did a custom drawing of a lighthouse that is close to the site of our wedding, and this lighthouse became the theme of our entire wedding.

Again, when it came to the invitations, Rob was able to harness my vision and make it come to life in invitation set that I was literally obsessed with. Rob was incredibly efficient with regard to sending proofs to me and then making minor adjustments. He also offered small bits of advice to make the invitation very "user friendly." You get to keep the letterpress plates, which is an extra bonus!

When it came to designing the ceremony programs and thank you cards, there was no question about who we would turn to. Rob designed both in record time, and incorporated the custom lighthouse drawing again, which the guests loved to see!

In planning a wedding, you end up working with so many vendors. Rob at Goosefish Press is a vendor that I will be working with beyond our wedding.

We used Goosefish Press for our wedding invitations and seating cards for the wedding reception. We met Rob at a local wedding expo, and we were immediately impressed with his work. When we met with Rob to discuss our invitations, he was receptive to our ideas, even though we were fairly vague at first. Rob took our initial idea and produced several concepts for our invitations. He had no issue with repeated minor changes and tweaks to our design, even when he was abroad in Japan. We really wanted the color of the invitation to match the Save the Dates we had already sent out. This wasn't a problem, because each batch of ink is mixed by hand and can be matched to almost any color. The invitations were incredible, the letterpress look and feel is unrivaled in its beauty and we received numerous compliments on the invitations.

We again used Rob to design our seating cards for the reception. He incorporated design elements from our invitations to tie the imagery together. Because each seating card was different and therefore cost prohibitive to do letterpress printing, he sent us the digital image and recommended local digital printers to print for us. These also came out beautifully.

We cannot express enough how incredible Rob and Goosefish Press were throughout the planning and design phases, and most importantly how beautiful the final products were. I recommend Goosefish Press to everyone.

I cannot speak highly enough about Rob Charlton and Goosefish Press. We are absolutely thrilled with our invitations--like beyond thrilled. Rob is responsive and caring. He worked with us (even with my crazy nitpicking!) to make beautiful custom invitations with a drawing of our venue on them! We don't live in Boston so everything was done by email and Rob is really quick to respond and offer different designs and color schemes. He even overnighted three different pinks to us so that we could choose the right one! Of all the prices quotes that we got, it's absolutely amazing that Rob was the best value! We were able to get double ply, two color letterpress CUSTOM invitations for half what we were quoted from a lot of other presses!!! It's INCREDIBLE! We really could not be more thrilled with how our invitations turned out and we cannot wait for friends and family to see them and ooh and ahh! Would DEFINITELY go with Goosefish for our invites if we had to do it again and we will be using him for any stationery needs in the future too!
