The Bridal Press is a letterpress and wedding invitation and event paper boutique serving clients nationally from Yorba Linda, in Orange County, California. Specializing in custom stationery for those who want something truly unique, The Bridal Press takes your vision of your perfect stationery package and brings it to life. Even if you don’t have a vision, but just a seed of an idea, we can add some magic and bring that to life as well.

I’m Lynn, the owner, chief creative, and invitation designer at The Bridal Press. When you fill out the contact form, I’ll return your email. When you meet with someone to talk about your dreams for the perfect wedding invitation or event package, you’ll talk to me. When someone creates your dream event papeterie, that’ll be me. I’m 100% hands-on and I only accept as many clients as I can take care of myself.

I’m a designosaur from way back. I’ve been in graphic design for a couple of decades. I started my career in corporate marketing. But as the marketing world headed into the digital age and less and less of my work was actual ink on paper, I felt like I was missing something.

vintage letterpressI’m a California girl, born and bred. I love the sunshine and working with my hands. I missed the smell of ink on paper and the feel of pillowy cotton card stock. Wanting to go back to my roots in print design, I bought a 100 year-old refurbished letterpress and learned the art of letterpress printing.

Throughout my corporate design career people asked me to design their wedding invitations, so I knew my new letterpress craft would not go to waste. As more and more of my time was spent on designing and printing invitation packages, I realized this was my calling. I love working with couples on their dream wedding invitations, and creating the perfect package to complement their perfect day.

Caring about my happy couples just starting out on life’s road, being able to offer a way to have a beautiful wedding within a reasonable budget is important to me. So I’m also now offering semi-custom, pre-designed suites for a more budget-friendly option. Packages can be customized by adding special details to give it that added bit of WOW.

So when you contact The Bridal Press, you’ll get me, the hopeless musical theater nerd, mom of two college kids and wife to my supportive hubby/accounting guy.

I look forward to hearing from you.
