Brooklyn inspired letterpress Bar Mitzvah invitations

If you’ve never seen hand calligraphy on a Bar Mitzvah invitation before, you aren’t alone. But why should weddings have all the hand lettered fun? Here our Belle calligraphy adds a touch of graceful whimsy to the clean, modern layout of our Irving invitation design. Our Brooklyn motif makes an appearance on the envelope liner and the thank you card, paying homage to the city William calls home.

Fresh Palmas Letterpress Invitations Featuring Belle Hand Calligraphy

In a unique twist on Beth Ann Seal‘s classic Palmas design, this invitation set features the exquisitely personal Belle hand calligraphy of Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls in place of the design’s original fonts.  The calligraphy adds a distinct mark of human touch, which is reinforced by the deep, tactile impression of the artisan letterpress printing.  Ink-less blind deboss printing for the art-deco inspired border keeps things subtle, while a bright clover envelope liner adds a splash of excitement to this chic and natural looking invitation set.

ink: black + blind deboss | paper: 2-ply ivory | invite size: f8 | liner: classic color in clover | edge painting: chartreuse | client coordinator: chris gannon | in-house designer: sarah walroth
