Part of what makes calligraphy letterpress invitations so amazing is that each one is always going to be a little different from every other one we’ve ever made before. With each design being painstakingly written out by hand before being digitized and eventually turned into a printing plate for letterpress printing, there’s always bound to be subtle (and beautiful) variations. But there’s unique, and then there’s unique.
Take for instance this design here, featuring the lavish hand calligraphy of the super-talented Sarah Hannah. This design most closely resembles Sarah’s Magnolia design, but despite the family resemblance they’re clearly not the same animal. The couple’s names on this invitation are much more elaborately embellished than usual and the ornate flourishes along the edges of the original design have been dropped entirely. This look is exactly what the bride was going for, and it was completely doable since Sarah was able to understand what she was envisioning and translate it into beautiful calligraphy.
