New Calligraphy Designs from Printable Press!


Plus a one-day-only chance to win your wedding invitations!

by Maddie Eisenhart, Chief Revenue Officer

When Printable Press releases new items or comes out with new designs, the only appropriate response is to go, “Finally!” Because chances are, it’s something you’ve been secretly wishing existed since forever. If you’re new around here, Printable Press is the stationery company that believes good design and affordable design should not be mutually exclusive. That’s why, a little over five years ago, they were one of the first invitation companies to offer digital PDFs of invitations (for just $79) that you can print however you want, in whatever quantities you want—at home, at a copy shop, with a professional print shop, you name it. Nowadays you can also order printed invitations directly from Printable Press, on thick, lovely paper with a cotton-like finish, in gorgeous vibrant colors, at about $213 for a hundred invitations and envelopes. And the designs? Oh man, the designs. Kimi’s aesthetic is so on point that every person on your APW staff with our very diverse tastes can all agree it’s the best.

With all that said, today I’m really excited to introduce a whole bunch of brand new invitations from Printable Press, featuring amazing, non-cheesy calligraphy designs. And I’m even more excited to tell you that Printable Press is going to be giving away a hundred free invitations to celebrate the new designs. But more on that in a minute.

Most predesigned wedding calligraphy is… stuffy. To say the least. But Kimi’s signature aesthetic makes calligraphy feel whimsical and cool. She explained:

We are introducing new designs that are all about calligraphy, swooping curly fun calligraphy. These invitations are a mix of elegant and boisterous—they are full of personality and individuality, while hinting at the classic all-text wedding invitations.

In addition to the new calligraphy designs, Printable Press is also adding address stamps (in both rubber stamps and printable designs) so that you don’t have to bother with the particular nuisance of having to have good handwriting when you want to mail a check. Or your wedding invitations. The calligraphy invites and address stamps only add to Printable Press’s existing roster of beautifully designed invitations, save the dates, wedding logos, accessories, and more. (I’m particularly fond of the botanical and birds and beasts collections.)

If it seems like Printable Press answers your questions before you even think of them, that’s probably because Printable Press has was born on APW, and therefore has a direct line to the inside of your brains (in a way that’s less terrifying than I just made it sound). Kimi says:

APW couples are the best couples ever—you guys know that marriage is splendiferous, difficult, personal, magical, and know how you feel. Which means you know you want your wedding to be deeply “you.” And those are the people we love most.

My focus has always been on bringing high design to those with any budget—I want everyone to be able to find something beautiful that speaks to their hearts and their personality. Some couples print our designs in letterpress, some at a good copy shop and cut them out themselves. Everyone has a different story, and I truly want to give something to everyone.

So if you’re one of those people who has champagne taste on a beer budget, let me tell you this: Printable Press is sort of like stumbling on the five cent wine sale at BevMo. It’s all your favorite stuff, except you can actually buy as many as you think you need. And as if all that wasn’t reason enough to run out and order your Printable Press design right now, Kimi is even throwing in one hundred free invites to one lucky APW reader today. So go, browse the Printable Press designs, then come back here and tell us which one is your favorite. We won’t even blame you if you lose a few hours to ogling in between.
