I love these design-your-own letterpress prints from Pistol Ready:

il 430xN.62720619 {pistol ready}

il 430xN.62720450 {pistol ready}

il 430xN.62720661 {pistol ready}

You provide the artwork, or let Pistol Ready illustrate something for you, and then they'll letterpress your postcards or prints in quantities of 25 or 50.  Prints are limited to one color and one side, but can be either 5 x 7 (ahem, perfect wedding invitation size) or 8.5 x 11. 

They also offer greeting cards and letterpress prints in their shop:

il 430xN.62726346 {pistol ready}

il 430xN.64546426 {pistol ready}

il 430xN.62725680 {pistol ready}

il 430xN.62725615 {pistol ready}
