Commodore- our nautical inspired letterpress wedding invitations!

We are absolutely smitten with these Commodore (by Lindsy Aragona) letterpress wedding invitations that our friends from Gus & Ruby in Portsmouth, New Hampshire submitted for us to print!  Shown with a pairing of our navy and stunning antique gold inks-this invitation has just a touch of elegance. A perfect antique gold envelope liner makes us think of a sandy shore just off of the harbor.  We see this used for an nautical New England wedding!
