Ink Fancy Letterpress
I LOVED our invitations. We got so many compliments on the quality and look of them.
We found Ink Fancy at the Seattle Urban Unveiled at the Benaroya Hall. I wasn't really planning on doing letterpress until I saw a sample she had at her display with the brookyln bridge. I had no clue what I wanted - but when I saw this, I immedietly knew it's what I wanted. I emailed Tere (owner) after the show asking if we could use the seattle skyline instead of the Brooklyn Bridge. Since it was an already existing template and she did not need to design a whole need template, I did now have to pay extra if it were created from sratch.
The quality of the paper she used was outstanding. The texture and feel of the envelopes and invitation made it look like i spent way more than I actually did.
Tere made suggestions when needed and was so kind to give me the template after the invitations were done for any scrapbooking needs.
Her responsiveness was a bit delayed but she WAS moving at the time. I was not worried when she didn't respond promptly.
Letterpress is not cheap by any means, so do not expect to pay a cheap amount. If you value the art of all things letterpress I see go with...
We had our wedding invitations made by Tere from Inkfancy. Not only was she a peasure to work with, but she met our tight schedule, and she showed me how to make part of the invitation myself, saving me money. She showed me how to add a peacock feather embellishment that gave a final touch of elegance & created the "wow" factor. Many of my guests commented that our invitations were the most beautiful, stunning inviations they have ever received. My mother in law said they were a work of art! If you want a unique and memorable inviation, and you love classy & elegant paper, I highly recommend Inkfancy.
Although the final product was marvelous, it was a very stressful endeavor. Tere was friendly and accommodating, but she was fairly inexperienced. I found myself consulting Crane's stationery etiquette book more than I needed to when dealing with a stationery "professional". I admit, I didn't have much of an idea of how I wanted the invites to look like, but that was her job as the professional. I felt like I had to tell her what I wanted, instead of her leading me as in all of my other vendors. She picked her designs from graphics books instead of designing her own. Although she got back to me quickly, except for the initial inquiry, it was all over email which is incredibly confusing. I finally took the lead to ask to meet in person which saved hours and hours of frustration. I'm pretty laid-back, but I felt like I was bridezilla with her, which is not a word that others would label me as.... and she also did not include a second envelope saying that the norm now is to not have an inside envelope, even though my wedding theme was vintage-themed and nothing modern about it. But now that I look at the invite, it is absolutely beautiful and ties in the entire wedding perfectly.....so...if you wanna do a little grunt work, Ink Fancy is great but if you are not experienced in wedding stationery and etiquette go elsewhere. I don't think I would recommend her to others unfortunately as much as I loved the final product.
Wow! I love my invites! I had Tere custom make our Letter Press Invites for our special day! She is extremely well priced and carries out beautiful work. I would recommend her to anyone needing anything from Invitations to stationary.
My wedding was back in September and I needed my Invites in a hurry, but did not want to sacrifice quality, style or elegance. I looked at a lot of he major companies, and didn’t like all of the options I was finding. I found Ink Fancy Letterpress through project wedding and have to say that Tere exceeded all of my expectations. We received compliments from every one of the 100 invitations we sent out.One of my girlfriends works at a high end stationer in SanFrancisco and could not believe what we paid, and how much of a deal we got for the quality of invitation we received. I ended up requiring a rush job and she was so accommodating and held my throughout the entire design and ordering process. The customer service was unparalleled. I ordered and paid for one of the pre-made designs, which was really felt like a custom job just for us that set the tone for our entire wedding . I would recommend Tere to absolutely everyone and will 100% be using her for the birth announcements of all our future children (as she does these too). I cannot say enough wonderful things about her or the level of product she provides!
We had searched high and low for the perfect invitations for our wedding and were about to give up when we stumbled across Inkfancy. We were looking for letterpress invitations that had an awesome design that didn't cost as much as a mortgage payment. Not only did the invitation suite we found (Chloe & Peter) meet those requirements, Tere at Inkfancy was amazing to work with.
Everything for the invitations was done via email (I live in Madison WI and she is located in Seattle WA), and Tere answered the one million+1 questions I had, was completely accommodating to all of my requests, and the overall turnaround time was lightning quick. She even custom mixed the ink colors to the ribbon samples I sent!
I could not be any happier with the final product, and can honestly say that there is not a single thing that I would have changed about the entire process.
I don't recall the steps on how I stumbled on inkfancy's webpage, but I am so glad I did. Initially I sent an inquiry and then received a sample suite and was really impressed with the paper quality, the deep impression of the letter press, and the fun designs. I also found the price really reasonable for custom design letterpress. Tere took our ideas and designed a few mockups. She really tied in everything I was looking for into our design and I loved it. We then went back and forth until we refined everything. I must say that I was in love with everything and Tere was so patient with me and a pleasure to work with. Also, all of our communication was via email, which worked out so conveniently for me. I highly recommend Tere!
