FAQ

DESIGN QUESTIONS

 

Do you do designs other than weddings?

Absolutely. Little Peach welcomes anyone in need of a little stationery love. Baby showers, bridal showers, baby announcements, birthday parties, swing tags - you name it, we can do it. In fact, have you seen our first range of greeting cards?

 

Do you do custom designs?

Yes, of course. It’s our specialty! We love to meet one-on-one and discuss your preferred aesthetics and messaging. Please feel free to take a look at our online galleries or pinterest boards to spark some inspiration.

 

How about business cards?

Yes – we’re actually seeing a huge demand for beautiful hand-crafted business cards. They’re turning into some of our favourite jobs. 

 

I need help wording my invitation. Can you help?

It would be our pleasure. Our years of experience can help you put together a traditional-and-formal or fun-and-quirky invitation that’s the perfect fit for you!

 

I’ve already perfected my design. Can you just print it?

Yes – we love helping designers create the beautiful letterpress pieces they’ve envisioned. Pop on over to the For Designers page to learn more about format requirements and guidelines.

 

PRINTING QUESTIONS

 

What is letterpress?

We’re obsessed with letterpress printing, and love sharing the tradition to keep it alive. To start, have you seen our letterpress video? As illustrated in the video, it is a traditional printing method where lead plates are inked with hand-mixed ink and pressed into a sheet of thick fluffy paper to create a unique three-dimensional deep impression.

 

What do letterpress pieces feel like?

If you’d like to know what letterpress pieces feel like in your hands, you can easily order a sample booklet (only $8) from our online store. Or – visit our storefront in Woolloongabba, QLD to see a bunch of examples up close and personal.

 

What’s the difference between one and two colour printing?

Essentially, it’s just how it sounds. One colour printing (view example) presses one colour into the paper, while two colour printing (view example) is put through the press twice to apply multiple inks. As you can imagine, additional colours mean additional cost, but it’s all a labor of love that creates an exquisite finished product.

 

Can you do double-sided printing?

Yes. We simply feed the paper through the machine twice.

 

What kind of ink do you use?

We use rubber-based ink and hand-mix all colours directly in our pressroom. It’s a smelly, but spectacular part of the letterpress process.

 

What happens if I have a last minute guest to invite?

We recommend you print 10-20 extra invitations. We know you’ll want one for the scrapbooks anyhow!

 

Can you send a mock-up to see if I like it?

Due to the time-intensive and laborious nature of designing and letterpress printing, we are currently unable to provide mock-ups. We will, however, make every effort to ensure you are pleased with the design and final print product. After the 50% deposit, we begin designing and create a first draft for your review. We are happy to make adjustments at that point.

 

LOGISTICS QUESTIONS

 

I don’t have much time, can I get my invitations quickly?

We will definitely give it a try. Call our studio and we will shake our tail feathers for you!

 

How long will my job take?

We pride ourselves on a 4-6 week turnaround for custom designs and 2-3 weeks for provided designs, but some jobs can take a little more tender love and care. We’d love to talk about your project in depth to give a clear idea about timeframe.

 

How much will my job cost?

While we have general pricing lists and special packages, we prefer to do custom quotes for each client. Please send us an enquiry about what you’re looking for, and we can go from there.

 

Do you have a minimum number to order?

Nope! All our work is created uniquely for each client, so no matter how big or small your order is, we can make it work.

 

What forms of payment will you accept?

Our preferred method of payment is direct deposit. We can process Visa, Mastercard, and EFTPOS on request. A 50% deposit is required to start your order, with the final balance due once your design is approved and prior to going to press.

 

Can we visit your studio?

We happily welcome visitors. That’s one of the unique abilities of our Woolloongabba storefront. Please feel free to pop in for a coffee and a chat. And you know Bertha (our letterpress) always loves to show off!
