Homespun Inspired Calligraphy Letterpress Invitations

Patricia Mumau wows us on the regular with her carefree calligraphy and illustrations. On this customization of our Balsam Calligraphy design, Sarah and John chose a mellow color palette paired with homespun touches like a jute envelope and textile inspired liner. They added a pop of color (and a shout-out to summer) with Watermelon colored edge painting.

Nature Inspiration – Balsam Calligraphy Wedding Invitations

These Balsam Calligraphy wedding invitations (by Patricia Mumau) printed in taupe letterpress are looking positively nature inspired. Paired with a jute colored envelope, the rustic look is definitely alive. The couple chose to print all of their reply by details on the front of the reply postcard, with only an oversized branch motif on the reverse. Many thanks to Urbanic Paper Boutique for submitting these for us to print.
