An unexpected pairing of polish and panache: Deveril letterpress wedding invitations

Our Deveril wedding invitation design is classic defined – its timeless, traditional and perfect for any formal event. But even a design this refined deserves to have a little fun. Kay and Joshua added our Classic Chevron pattern in blind deboss (an impression without ink) to the front of the invitation while keeping the sophisticated styling of the Deveril design. This unexpected pairing of polish and panache expertly showcases the beauty of letterpress printing on our luxurious cotton paper.

Indian inspiration: A Bientot letterpress wedding invitations

Symbolizing wisdom, loyalty, longevity and good fortune, this little elephant brings a dash of the unexpected to this colorful rendition of our A Bientot wedding invitation design. Kanan and Arif were inspired by the save the date from the A Bientot suite, showing just how versatile our 325+ designs can be.

Classic + Formal A Bientot Wedding Invitations

Theresa and Eric went for a more classic, less Parisian feel on their customization of our A Bientot wedding invitation design. The sweet stripes and floral motif were removed and the frame was altered to allow for a more formal, traditional layout. The Augustine Damask envelope liner pattern ups the romance and pairs perfectly with the motif.

Romantic A Bientot in Rose Gold foil

Even without the pretty pink stripes, this customization of our A Bientot wedding invitation design is romantic and sweet thanks to the Rose Gold foil and pretty type with coordinating monogram. The couple didn’t lose the stripes entirely – they just moved them to their design-inspired envelope liner, where the monogram makes another appearance.

Save the Dates for every budget

Save the dates are a helpful resource for your guests and a great way to set the tone for your upcoming wedding. With 325+ designs (and counting!) we have something for everyone – and if you don’t see something that is perfect for your wedding, we can work with you until you’ve found it. With hundreds of designs and limitless combinations of ink colors and embellishments, we thought it might be helpful to show some ideas and options fit for any budget – from conservative to wildly extravagant.

We can’t get enough of the dazzle and flash of foil stamping – but truth be told, the look and feel of letterpress printing on our luxurious cotton paper is hands down our favorite. Just one color – dark or light, pale or bright – can be perfect for your save the dates. In addition to being more budget friendly than multiple ink colors and foil stamping, choosing one letterpress ink gives you a bit more flexibility if you haven’t settled on a color palette for the wedding.

To further personalize your save the dates and make them truly unique to you, consider adding hand calligraphy from one of our insanely talented calligraphers. We have lots of styles available from the traditional to the whimsical to every style in between. Contact them to address your envelopes in the coordinating calligraphy style for the ultimate presentation.

With over 60 letterpress inks and nearly 20 metallic foil colors, the options to customize your save the dates in your wedding colors are virtually endless. Print in two letterpress colors, two foil colors, or opt for one of each – our letterpress inks and foil colors pair perfectly together.

Love letterpress printing and/or foil stamping but having trouble working it into your budget? Try downsizing your save the date to our petite A5 size (the size of a standard reply card). What it lacks in size it more than makes up for in sheer sweetness. There are no rules when it comes to save the dates, so don’t let the smaller size fool you – these can be just as formal and just as traditional as their larger counterparts.

For the ultimate splurge in save the dates, you can’t go wrong with foil stamping, letterpress printing and diecut shapes. Combining two or more of our printing options and embellishments will wow your guests and set the tone for your ultra modern or over the top, glamorous wedding.
