Getting the Most for Your Money: Wedding Stationery

Affordable Wedding Invites at Gossett Printing offers affordable custom wedding products that maximize your stationery budget. There are many reasons we are able to offer such amazing personal service at a cost much lower than competing brands. If you are browsing the internet for the perfect wedding invitations, programs and accessories, look no further. Gossett Printing offers superior products at the least cost to you.

What is it about Gossett Printing that sets us apart from competing stationery providers? 

Your wedding deserves personal attention. Kelly King provides the same personal assistance to each and every couple, just as though she were planning her own wedding (again). Kelly was a budget bride in 2005, and began her own design process after seeing the skyrocketing prices of formal stationery. As a printer's daughter, she knew there were more affordable methods to create invitations and accessories that only look expensive. It is her aim to make the process as easy as possible for you. 


Here are a few reasons why:

• Family-owned Printing Company
Our company has been in business since 1989, located in southern Illinois. Competing stationers are typically studio-based or home-based businesses that don’t have the space for stocking popular papers and commercial equipment. They order pre-cut cards, which increases the number of impressions needed to complete your order. In contrast, we are a commercial printing company in a large facility. We order our house brand papers in bulk, breaking them down to a per sheet price, which passes significant savings to the customer.

• Personal Assistance
Kelly handles every order, from design to production to packaging. Other online and mega-print companies often outsource to print houses that are a completely separate location from the customer service center. This means that the person you spoke with or emailed about your order will never actually SEE or HANDLE the product you ordered.

• Customization and Personalization
Literally -- ANY design is available for your event at one low cost. Kelly creates 2-3 design options for your event, based on information you provide. Each order is custom designed specifically for you, and every matching item is designed with your input, every step of the way.

Digital printing also allows for variable data services. This means each and every item can be personalized for each individual guest at your event. Printed escort cards or personalized notes to each member of the bridal party are no problem!

• Complete Custom In-House Production
As a commercial printing and publishing company, we have equipment and supplies that make an efficient production process. We offer complete design, printing and bindery services, including digital printing and traditional lithography.

• Efficient Production Process
Not only does our process reduce the impact our products have on the environment, but many of these waste-reduction strategies also result in a lower cost to the client. We print multiple items on the same sheet of stock for your event, which maximizes every dollar spent.

• Postal Experience
We consider your postage costs before beginning your design. We guarantee our basic ensembles will mail for standard postage, unless your choices increase the weight or size of the final product. We let you know how much your postage will cost before you make your final selections.

We also offer RSVP Postcards and Seal and Send products. This saves you the expense of additional envelopes and postage costs.


• Actual Hard Proofs Available
For each and every order, we provide a printed hard proof of your design on your selected paper stock. Competitors only allow you to view your proof online, which can lead to errors and color-matching issues. Can't decide which stock you like best? We can offer any of our in-stock choices as a printed sample for you to choose your papers for a small fee.

• Heavier Paper stocks = Higher Quality Products
Most companies use 80 lb. Cover, a standard that is dependent completely on the capabilities of the digital press being used to create the product. Our equipment allows us to print on 100 lb. and 105 lb. Cover stocks, making our product look and feel more luxurious than other similar products.

• THE BOTTOM LINE: Honest Prices for Digital Printing
Digital printing is the most cost-efficient method for small run orders. Many competing websites offer the digital products for a much higher price, simply because they know the average consumer can’t tell the difference. At Gossett Printing, we want you to get the most for your money, comparing our $195 sets to competitors ranging from $400-700 for the exact same product! YIKES! And – that’s without all the custom options that we offer.
