Impressed with Impress Prints

August 23, 2009

I went to the wedding fair at the NBC Tent today with my parents and fiance to book Shutterbox photobooth (more on this later). Since we had time to kill before dinner, we decided to look around the tent and check out the suppliers for invitations.

Mac and I decided that we didn’t want to spend too much on our invitations. We’ve gone to several wedding fairs already and we’ve balked at the prices for invitations that we decided to do them ourselves. This way, we save on the invites plus the lay out will be personalized. I wasn’t so keen with the labor involved (being both frugal and lazy has its disadvantages) so I was still half-hoping that we’d stumble into a stationery supplier who’s within our budget.

And stumble we did.

We found Impress Prints (by Calliope Printing Services) by chance. We just left QP’s booth (another supplier) and I think Impress was the only other invitation supplier in the fair. I literally stopped when I scanned through their brochure. They had the LOWEST prices I’ve seen for invitations in ALL the wedding fairs I’ve been to.

STANDARD INVITATION PACKAGE – 5.5″x 7.5″ card – Php 5,800.00

LONG SIZE INVITATION PACKAGE – 4″”x 9″ card – Php 4,200.00

Both packages include the following:

100 pcs. Main Card

100 pcs. Entourage Card

100 pcs. RSVP or Thank You card

100 pcs. Mailing Sticker/Envelope Seal

100 pcs. Envelope

The quality of paper was good and their designs aren’t bad either. Here are some of the designs from their multiply site:



The owners were really nice and very straightforward. No bullshit–I liked that. The best part was that when I asked if I can make the lay out for our invitations, they said I’m free to do so WITH NO EXTRA CHARGE!!! Sweet! We still get our personalized invitations at a great price!

So then and there, we paid the reservation fee and booked them.  I mean, did we really need more convincing?
