Will you check my file and make sure it’s set up to letterpress beautifully?

Yes, we most certainly will!  This is one of the things we are most critical about.  We will be in touch if we find any “red flags” that may compromise quality, otherwise, it’s up to you to check spelling and make sure your contact info is correct.

Does Piggyback letterpress in ink colors other than black, different paper, other than 2 x 3.5, painted edges, etc?

In the spirit of  “simplicity,” Piggyback letterpresses exclusively in black ink ONLY, our signature Cranes, 100% cotton paper ONLY, single-sided / double-sided ONLY and 2 x 3.5″ ONLY.  These are the specifications that enable us to take advantage of “economies of scale” passing along a HUGE discount to Piggybackers.

Do you letterpress anything other than business cards?

Piggyback specializes in single & double-sided business cards ONLY.  If you have a custom project please let us know.  We’ll either accommodate you depending on our production schedule or refer you to a collaborator we trust.

What is your turnaround time?

We ship within 7-14 business days.  If you require a faster turnaround time please let us know and we’ll do our best to meet your deadline.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we most certainly do!  We ship via FedEx or UPS.

What format do you take the design in?

We accept PDF’s created in either “In-Design” or “Illustrator.”

Do you offer assistance with design?

We have a trusted list of designers who specialize in designing specifically for letterpress.  Please contact us for more info at info@piggybackletterpress.com

Can you ship me samples?

Yes, samples are free.  We ask you to simply cover USPS shipping charges of $5.00 within the U.S and $15.00 internationally.  Please see our shop page for more details.

Do you print less than 250 cards?

Piggyback letterpresses in minimum quantities of 250 cards.

Since almost 80% of what goes into the cost of letter-pressing are set “set-up” costs, it’s basically the same price to print 250 cards as it is to print 100.  The only difference is a little bit more paper & trimming, which is minimal.
