What better way to make sure your guests don’t let your wedding date *ahem* coast by, than with some letterpress save the date coasters? We printed these Carte de Visite (by Ben Whitla) letterpress save the dates and matching coasters in Taupe, Papaya, and Sand inks, and we’ve got to say – we’re really into this color combo.
To make everything in this set as cohesive as possible we also custom designed and letterpress printed an envelope liner that coordinates with the cards and coasters. Between this letterpress envelope liner and the bright Papaya edge painting on the save the date, this set really has some amazing presence when you open the flap (even before you take the pieces out!).
