Majestic Plume Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Totally regal and totally gorgeous this wildly customized rendition of our Plume design (by Amy Graham Stigler) was sent over to us for printing by our BFFs at Judy Paulen Designs in NYC.  It features the Spencerian style hand calligraphy accents of the ever-amazing Debi Zeinert as well as crest artwork that was submitted by the bride for inclusion in the set.  Cap that off with our 2-ply paper, two color printing in Cream and Tea Rose, edge painting, and digitally printed belly bands to hold it all together, and you’ve got what you see here – one SICK letterpress invite set.

Garden Simplicity – Soleil Letterpress Wedding Invitations

A recent favorite is a clean customization to our Soleil (by Beth Ann Seal) letterpress wedding invitations. The simplicity of our sea mist and taupe inks on white paper, combined with our Luster Roman font creates a natural quality that is perfect for a garden themed wedding. A matching sea mist envelope liner balances the understated letterpress set.

Real Wedding – An elegant celebration in Santa Barbara

We were absolutely thrilled to see this real wedding on Style Me Pretty recently – a stunning white affair that took place in beautiful Santa Barbara. The couple’s Majorca wedding invitations set the tone for their intimate celebration, and romantic hints of blush were found throughout the decor. The bridesmaids wore stunning, custom-made dresses by Lauren Bradley, and the bride wore an incredible pair of bright blue Christian Loubouton peep toe shoes, a gift given to her by the groom while they were dating.  We love their coordinating day-of pieces, too – gorgeous table cards and menus are the perfect way to tie everything together.

Bali-eve It or Not – Custom Letterpress Wedding Booklets

Letterpress booklets are hands down one of the coolest things we get to work on around here.  I mean come on, a personalized letterpress booklet just for your wedding – what could be more awesome than that?  Submitted for your approval, is by far one of the nicest ones we’ve been able to work on.

To welcome their guests to a destination wedding in Bali, this couple had us custom design and print ceremony programs and welcome booklets loaded with all kinds of amazing touches.  The programs are composed of two double-sided pages (one fits inside the other) with a score line in the middle and hole drilling so that they can be assembled together with ribbon.  The 7 page welcome booklets are bound together with brass grommets and include a subtly patterned one piece cover that wraps around the spine of the booklet.  What’s inside the booklet you ask?  Pretty much a condensed Lonely Planet!  They included all the details their guests might have possibly needed for a wedding in this island paradise, right down to a primer in basic Indonesian and a list of all the local hot spots.   The entire set is printed on our white paper in a combination of Cream ink and a custom mix of Pantone 618 ink.

Handdrawn letterpress wedding invitation for the modern minimalist

We are completely infatuated with these Handdrawn (by Erin Jang) letterpress invitations that our friends at Judy Paulen Designs in New York, NY submitted to us for printing.  We adore the overall ultramodern feel.  The reply card features multiple events options that are showcased on the weekend events card. Looks like the party will stretch on for days!

Real Wedding – Sophistication in Sydney

Last fall, we had the pleasure of designing and printing these gorgeous invitations for Vanessa & David’s November wedding at the iconic Sydney Opera House. The invitations were a custom design, featuring elements from our ever-popular Deveril design and an intricate custom pattern. The pattern was printed in black on extra-wide belly bands that we created to keep everything packaged neatly together, and was also printed in blind deboss on the back of each card to create an ultra-chic look. We loved seeing all of the amazing photographs of the big day on Style Me Pretty – dreamy white peonies, a stunning 5-tier cake, and soft, romantic candlelight added so much elegance to this black tie affair. An indulgent dinner reception at Guillaume at Bennelong was followed by homemade limoncello (created by the bride’s father) – a delicious treat and a nod to the bride’s Italian heritage.

Vendage Letterpress – Umber + Chartreuse

Umber and Chartreuse inks laid down on our ivory paper lend this lovely letterpress wedding invitation set a distinctly earthy and organic look, while at the same time showing off some very sophisticated style.  The bride and grooms names have been written out in Maura style hand calligraphy by Kelle McCarter, which gives a gorgeous dash of individuality to the Vendage design (by Kamal).  To coordinate with their invitations, this couple also decided to print matching menus and program covers for their wedding.  Homemade pies and cookies you say?  YES PLEASE!
