Deco letterpress Invites for a Prohibition-Style Blowout

Corporate shindigs are one of the top non-wedding uses for our letterpress invites, and here’s a really cool one we did recently based on Elizabeth and David Mandel‘s Deco design.  Lion in the Sun sent this really sweet printing gig our way, along with some custom artwork that we printed on the envelope flaps to coordinate with the set.  Overall it’s a beautiful invite that goes along perfectly with the 1920′s theme of the event.

Icy Fresh Lumos Letterpress Save the Dates

With another Syracuse winter sneaking up on us, this customization of Ben Whitla‘s Lumos design is feeling especially fitting for the season.  A combination of our charcoal and pool inks letterpress printed onto our snowy white 1-ply paper breathes a cool and modern breath into this popular design.  We owe the honor of printing this particular save the date to the ever-awesome gang downstate at Judy Paulen Designs Bloomingdales.

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.
