Shayna was a pleasure to work with! I found one of her designs on Pinterest and contacted her about it. She customized it to fit exactly what we were looking for. She created a combination of letterpress and digital printing so we could get the look we loved on our budget. (If you have the money to spend, the letterpress is really spectacular.) To top it off, she was so patient while we changed our mind a million times to get the perfect shade of green! They were delivered really quickly, payment was easy, and I have no complaints. The invitations came out great and everyone who has seen them has loved them! I would highly recommend Shayna and Steel Petal Press!

*The only tip I would provide is to double check your names/addresses for envelopes before having them printed, as it is expensive to order a few after the fact if there are mistakes.

Shayna and Steel Petal Press were fabulous and easy to work with for the most part. My invitations were beautiful and Shayna pays attention to detail for sure. They were expensive, but they were worth it in my opinion. When people open your invitations, they will appreciate what a work of art they are! So classic and modern.

I initially chose Shayna because she is in the neighborhood where I live, Pilsen. It seems to me like she does most of her business online though. This made it a little difficult for us to meet up at times, because I preferred to go to her studio and her schedule is varied. The only thing I would suggest to buyers is not buying the rubber stamp, and just paying the extra money to have your envelopes printed as well as your invites (Shayna offers it for 50$ and printing is over twice that I believe). The stamp was difficult for me to use and the stamping is tough to get 'perfect.' The edges of the stamp kept leaving ink marks on the envelopes, even when pressing evenly and lightly. When your already spending alot on invites, keep spending and print your envelopes too.....

Overall, a good experience and very unique and beautiful invites.

I contacted Shayna with Steel Petal Press this past January 2014 to help with our Save the Dates for our upcoming wedding in June. We planned a wedding in Maine, so her cute Lobster Save the Date was a perfect fit! It was an absolute pleasure working with Shayna!! She was quick to respond to my request, offered her advice on the copy for the Save the Date & helped me determine the appropriate quantity to order for our wedding.

The colors on the Save the Date are so vibrant & the quality of the paper is top notch! Even the envelopes include a unique detail, as they have a little lobster emblem by our return address. Everything was just beautiful!

I truly enjoy all things paper, so our Save the Dates & Invites were a top priority for our wedding. On the flip side, I think Steel Petal Press would also appeal to a bride that is looking for a simple Save the Date and/or invite as well. With the ability to customize your order, Steel Petal Press makes the invitation process a breeze while also making the invitations unique for your wedding day!

I would highly recommend Steel Petal Press for your wedding invitations!!

I was lucky enough to go to the Steel Petal Press studio to work with Shayna on the design for my invitations. It was really important to me for the invitations to be special. Shayna created exactly what i was looking for! Each one was like a special work of art that we sent to all of our invited guests. I still get compliments on them. I would recommend Steel Petal Press to anyone who is looking for top of the line quality, hands on service, and most importantly, incredibly beautiful letter press work.

Steel Petal Press did a terrific job with our invitations. For all other aspects of the wedding we tired to do things as cheaply as possible, resulting in basically a rager without a sit-down dinner, but the one area we decided to really do a formal job was with the invitations. I learned somewhere that letterpress printing is the best kind. I saw some of Steel Petal Press' work online, and it looked great. The press is owned and operated by Shayna, a young artisan who got back to me right away and set up a time to meet in person. I didn't really know where to start, so she guided us through all the options and had a bunch of samples in a book for inspiration. Once she helped us decide on a general design, she took it from there. She sent a bunch of proofs by email in PDF so we could see how everything looks in a bunch of different layouts. She was always extremely responsive and professional. The final product looked terrific. There is an absolutely clear difference between good, letterpress printed stuff and cheaply done print jobs. Everyone thought our invitations were awesome, and we got a lot of complements on them.
Letterpress can be expensive, but it is totally worth it. If you want to save money, don't go with a cheaper printer. Instead, do invitations only and save money by not doing printed reply cards and return envelopes. After we got Shayna's initial cost estimate, we actually reduced our order to not have her print envelopes for us, and instead just do the invites and reply cards. It worked out really well and Shayna was totally cool with it and got back to us right away.
In sum, Steel Petal Press is the way to go. I'll definitely use this company again for future work.
