Letterpress, as we know and love today, is now reserved for the most special of all occasions–may it your wedding, a baby announcement or a special birthday occasion.
At Yesterday Creative we merge traditional letterpress printing with more modern print techniques and creative contemporary designs to make impressive custom wedding invitations and event stationery. We work closely with our clients to make sure that your invitations are truly unique and we have a range of template design styles that you can choose to have customised with your event details.
A custom designed and beautifully printed invitation truly sets the tone for your event—when a guest opens a letterpressed invitation it becomes a tactile and most memorable experience, creating great excitement and anticipation leading up to your special day.
The best feedback that we receive from clients is that the stationery we create for their events are stunning printed pieces that guests find too beautiful to throw away.
We can help make your event planning easy with the following services:

We do have a pricelist however since every event is so different we often put together a customised quote based on your wishlist.

If you are not sure what you like browse our collection of stationery and find something that you like, which we can customise with your event details and some added flair to make it your very own.

Allow up to two weeks for design concepts and final artwork to be completed before it is ready for print. Custom designs or large orders may take a little longer but we will advise you of a more accurate timeline. If you need it quicker, don’t worry, our design team can accommodate even the tightest of deadlines.
Alternatively, if you are handy with Creative Suite or have a friend doing design for you, bring your artwork and we can print it for you! Just let us know and we can give you some guidance on setting up artwork suitable for letterpress.
This is where it all becomes real! Come into the studio on print day and see your stationery being printed. Get hands on and have some fun with Neisha to help mix your own ink and press check to make sure the colour is just perfect, and the detail in your design is beautifully impressed into the paper to your liking.
We allow 3 days for platemaking and up to 7 days for complete production and print finishing, depending on the size of the order. Allow up to 2 weeks where additional services such as lasercutting or edgepainting are required.
Your stationery will be checked for quality to make sure it is perfect and that everything you need to post your invitations will be carefully packed ready for pickup from our Brisbane studio, or delivery to your address. Courier or express post delivery is available at an additional cost and will be quoted additionally depending on your location.
