This wedding invitation features scrollwork inspired by the architecturally stunning Chicago Cultural Center in Chicago, Illinois. Built in 1897 as a public library and currently used as cultural center, this beautiful Chicago attraction houses two Tiffany-stained glass rotundas and mother of pearl mosaics throughout.
This listing is for a non-refundable deposit only on the Chicago Cultural Center Letterpress Wedding Invitation. Your deposit will be applied toward your final total. Final payment will be due before printing.
This invitation features a mix of letterpress and flat printing. This option does help to trim costs but please be aware that there may be a very slight difference in color between the letterpress and flat printing. The printing methods and inks used for letterpress and flat printing are very different and should not be expected to look exactly the same.This invitation may also be printed all letterpress instead of mixing printing methods.
Our pricing includes complimentary changes to the fonts and colors and four rounds proofs. Additional rounds of proofs are $25/each and design additions/changes are available for $45 an hour / 1 hour minimum. Please note, letterpress printing prices are affected by the number of colors used but flat printing is not.
