personalized stationery - Page 2

post #16 of 29
I've never ordered personal stationary myself, so I can't comment on quality but... .my friend started a website http://www.walkuppress.com. Since I'm pimping her work, I'm going to buy some cards and let you know how it works out.

Stern: engraved, $2500; thermographed, $1400
Smythson's: engraved, $1600
Crane's: engraved, $1200; thermographed, $600
All-State Legal: engraved, $500 (minimum quantities much greater so the comparable price is lower)

What did you end up choosing?

I'm also surprised Smythson's can in below so much Stern's.

Solid info - I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Crane's kind of guy, but that's just inherited preference.

jeez how much are one of those antique letterpresses anyway? you'd think you could save money if you just bought one hired someone to make a pattern or whatever it's called and just churn out your own statio.

buy quality paper, and have a seal professionally made for you. Apply this seal to your stationary as needed. If you can't afford English bespoke seal makers, then go on etsy and get something made from rubber, and it works just as well. Pre-made stationery seems kind of pointless from company like Smythson, Pineider, or even Colonel Litteton when modern technology allows you to print very quality headings on your paper of choice. There was a company in Paris which coat a silk fabric to your custom order stationery and only use pure gold leaves for heat-stamped monogram but I haven't heard from them since. Something like that is probably worth it but everything else is just blah!

Hi,

I live in Hong Kong too - where did you go to get your personalized stationary printed?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you!
