  • Rob Charlton is a true professional and a pleasure to work with. He has a structured approach to helping you design the invitation you want, and will work patiently with you, ensuring quick responses until you get It just right. The quality of his letterpress work is extraordinary, and on time. He was also willing to do design layouts for our wedding map, menu and weekend event cards that could be printed more economically, but still had the flair and detail of the invitation. Rob is a gem.

  • If you are looking for letterpress wedding invitations or any sort of custom design work, look no further. Rob is your man. I cannot say enough wonderful things about how professional, responsive, and flexible Rob is. I did an extensive search in the Boston area for wedding invitation sand I truly think that I found the best in Rob. I like to think that I'm a "creative" person, however I lack the artistic talent needed to make my vision come to life. That's where Rob stepped in. He listened to what I wanted my Save the Date to look like, and he was able take my little drawings and turn them into a postcard that was such a huge hit with our guests. Also, Rob did a custom drawing of a lighthouse that is close to the site of our wedding, and this lighthouse became the theme of our entire wedding. Again, when it came to the invitations, Rob was able to harness my vision and make it come to life in invitation set that I was literally obsessed with. Rob was incredibly efficient with ...

  • We used Goosefish Press for our wedding invitations and seating cards for the wedding reception. We met Rob at a local wedding expo, and we were immediately impressed with his work. When we met with Rob to discuss our invitations, he was receptive to our ideas, even though we were fairly vague at first. Rob took our initial idea and produced several concepts for our invitations. He had no issue with repeated minor changes and tweaks to our design, even when he was abroad in Japan. We really wanted the color of the invitation to match the Save the Dates we had already sent out. This wasn't a problem, because each batch of ink is mixed by hand and can be matched to almost any color. The invitations were incredible, the letterpress look and feel is unrivaled in its beauty and we received numerous compliments on the invitations. We again used Rob to design our seating cards for the reception. He incorporated design elements from our invitations to tie the imagery together. Because each... Read more

  • I cannot speak highly enough about Rob Charlton and Goosefish Press. We are absolutely thrilled with our invitations--like beyond thrilled. Rob is responsive and caring. He worked with us (even with my crazy nitpicking!) to make beautiful custom invitations with a drawing of our venue on them! We don't live in Boston so everything was done by email and Rob is really quick to respond and offer different designs and color schemes. He even overnighted three different pinks to us so that we could choose the right one! Of all the prices quotes that we got, it's absolutely amazing that Rob was the best value! We were able to get double ply, two color letterpress CUSTOM invitations for half what we were quoted from a lot of other presses!!! It's INCREDIBLE! We really could not be more thrilled with how our invitations turned out and we cannot wait for friends and family to see them and ooh and ahh! Would DEFINITELY go with Goosefish for our invites if we had to do it again and we wi... Read more

  • Never have I ever been so satisfied and happy with a service. Of all the vendors I've worked with for my wedding, Rob at Goosefish is hands down one of the most responsive, knowledgeable and most important skilled professional of them all. He worked with me through multiple rounds of proofs and never showed any impatience. He responded within minutes to any email I sent him and always addressed every question I asked. If you're looking for excellence, attention to detail and beautiful wedding invitations, Goosefish is THE place to go. I literally almost cried when I saw and felt my invitations for the first time because they came out so wonderful. 5 stars all around. You will not be disappointed.

  • I hired Rob to create all of my paper products for my June wedding. Rob's responsiveness, creativity, patience and attention to detail exceeded my expectations. It was so easy to work with Rob, share ideas and come up with a finished product that was truly so beautifully executed! Rob always made me feel like I was his most important client - and knowing he is such high demand, I know I was not his only client during our time together. My family and friends, still, cannot stop talking about the beauty, class, and sophistication of the products he created for my black tie affair. While I used letterpress for my save-the-dates and wedding invitations, Rob encouraged me to use digital press for my escort cards, welcome letter and wedding programs to save money - Rob designed the work and then provided the file for me to send to the printer - so easy and so pretty!! I highly recommend Rob and Goosefish!

  • My fiance and I just picked up our invitations from Goosefish Press for our June 2012 wedding and everything came out wonderfully, we can't wait to send them out to our guests! Rob was extremely responsive and helpful during the entire process; from design, to proof, to final product, Rob was very easy to work with and we are extremely happy with how our personalized Save-the-Dates and Wedding Invitations turned out. Rob was available over email or over the phone and made the whole process very easy. He did a great job with designing a map for our wedding location and was able to recommend some ways to save on costs for printing some of our other paper goods. I would absolutely recommend Goosefish Press and Rob to anyone looking for special letterpress invitations!

  • Rob at Goosefish Press was great to work with. He does custom design letterpress and is very talented. I brought in some photos of the design I wanted to capture and he was able to give me multiple options based on the inspiration I provided him. His work is beautiful and I felt his letterpress was a good value. I recommend Rob to all my family and friends who are recently engaged!

  • Rob Charlton of Goosefish Press was such a pleasure to work with in designing our wedding invitations. It's no wonder he has so many positive reviews on WeddingWire! Rob and I began discussing what sort of design I was interested in several months out, and my ideas evolved a lot over the months we worked together. Rob was flexible and responsive the entire time - every time I made a slight edit, or changed my mind completely, he turned around a proof and sent it my way very quickly. His pricing was straightforward, and, for the beautiful quality of letterpress printing he does, it was also very reasonable. We absolutely loved the final result, and received so many compliments on our invitations/ceremony programs/reception dinner menus/thank you notes. I hope I'll have another occasion to work with Rob again!

  • My husband and I had our wedding the past September. We had The Goosefish Press design our wedding invitations and they were truly the most unique and elegant invitations. Rob (the owner) custom designed our invitations to include a sculpture that was at our wedding venue. I sent him a picture and he designed everything through email. It was a truly easy process and Rob was always so prompt with his responses and works efficiently and was honest about how much time a design would take. He ensured that we didn’t overspend by requesting a difficult design. Also, he really went out of his way to accommodate our schedule when we wanted to visit the shop since we were living in SC at the time. He even gives the letter press dies when he is finished printing which are an awesome keepsake after the wedding. I would recommend The Goosefish Press for anyone looking for elegant and unique wedding invitations with a personal touch.

  • Rob Charlton created absolutely beautiful, unique, personalized invitation suites for us while rendering unparalleled prompt, patient and congenial personal service. The Goosefish Press is simply the best and I cannot recommend Rob highly enough. Rob patiently collaborated with me for days on end in designing a stunning invitation suite that elegantly captured the essence of icons that were symbolic of the setting for our wedding. Our guests raved about them. Rob’s responsiveness was amazing and the cost was extremely reasonable when compared to the cost of high quality invitation suites from leading stationery companies. He rendered the same expert and responsive service at a low hourly rate in adapting his invitation suite designs to create and typeset our beautiful wedding program, signs and favor tags, and in drawing custom designs for each table sign. He also generously advised me to save money by using a high quality copy shop to produce them.

  • Goosefish Press provides excellent design services as well as letterpress printing. I found it helpful to work with one shop rather than find a designer, then a printer, etc.

  • Rob Charlton's Goosefish Press was amazing. The experience of picking invitations and stationary is extremely overwhelming. From the moment we walked into the press we immediately felt comfortable and less stressed. Rob has a way of listening to your vision and executing it in a flawless fashion. My husband and I got married in Boston but live in New York. Rob took our personal story and created a series of amazing cards for every aspect of our wedding from the Save the Date to the reply card each design was unique and reflected our personalities. He allowed us the opportunity to have our invitations be more than just paper but another part of our special day. We were thrilled with Goosefish Press and would highly recommend Rob not only for his extreme professionalism, artistic ability and design work but also for his keen sense of knowing his clients on a more personal level.

  • I did an incredibly comprehensive search for my wedding invitations. I knew I wanted letterpress and I knew I wanted something original, but I had a really difficult time finding the perfect match of quality and price... until I found Rob at Goosefish Press. Since I lived overseas at the time I was ordering my invitations, Rob immediately offered to work with me via e-mail or with the help of my local friends in Boston. He proved to be extremely flexible, responsive and creative. He generated ideas, solved problems, offered suggestions, and did beautiful design work. The most impressive aspect was how quickly he responded to all of my requests and suggestions. Every time I sent an e-mail or asked for a change on the invitation design, he immediately and professionally responded with an answer or a new design. Among all of my wedding vendors, Rob was far and away the most responsive, helpful and patient. The finished product was absolutely beautiful. I was delighted by the d... Read more
