There is nothing like the textural beauty of letterpress and, when it takes its ultimate form with an intricate blind deboss impression, the result is stunning. The ornate, floral pattern of Gournay, all in white, is regal with classic hand calligraphy in elegant black.
We love seeing what inspires the designers who help create our collection of letterpress wedding invitations. “Elegance in simplicity. That is the inspiration for Colette. Elegant calligraphy with a pointed pen sweeps across the width of its edges with languid tails and lower case lettering. It embodies the drama and femininity of its namesake – Sidonie Gabrielle Colette, the famous modern French writer whose romantically fervent novels reflected her own impassioned life.”
A befitting setting for Colette includes textural elements extracted from nature. Feathers, nests, branches, and woven textures are a striking juxtaposition to sparkling lights, shiny metallics and gold leaf and make a beautiful artisan presentation.”
