Recently we had the pleasure of working with a local bride who designed her own letterpress wedding invitations that we then printed. The invitations are a square shape, printed in pewter and papaya inks on our 2-ply paper. To complete the playful design, the bride chose pewter edge painting and a bright pop of color with a fuchsia envelope liner.
Our Vendage letterpress wedding invitation design has become one of 2010′s greatest hits. This customization is printed in pool and umber inks and features a horizontal orientation instead of the square featured in the original design. The envelopes are lined in pool to match the pool edge painting and the set is printed on our luxury 2-ply paper. Classic black ink for the envelope printing makes this set sophisticated, a bit whimsical and cool blend of modern and traditional design.
We love these letterpress wedding invitations, a customization of Vendage, one of our new designs for 2010. We printed these in garden and champagne inks and then edge painted them in papaya. The reply card is a 1-color letterpress design printed in garden ink and all of the pieces are tucked inside an envelope featuring a champagne liner. We just adore this combination of bright summery colors paired with the botanical design and sweet little birds, perfect for a warm summer wedding.
In bright happy colors perfect for spring and summer, this customization features our Anthology design from our 2010 collection printed in fuchsia and persimmon inks. The luxurious 2-ply cotton paper shows off the pop of color from the fuchsia edge painting, which is perfectly coordinated with a persimmon envelope liner. We love this suite – it’s vibrant and festive and the perfect fit for this couple’s upcoming Las Vegas wedding.
Penned exclusively for us by calligrapher Patricia Mumau, our String Calligraphy letterpress wedding invitation design is becoming a fast favorite among our new 2010 designs. Each invitation is lovingly hand written by Patricia and then letterpressed by Bella Figura, making each piece a truly personalized creation. This customization is printed in navy ink and features edge painting in fuchsia for a delightfully modern interpretation of a very traditional craft.
We created these custom letterpress invitations for an event hosted by Nestlé last spring. They are a custom design derived from our Walden design, printed in antique gold and espresso inks with rounded corners and elegant metallic gold edge painting. Nestlé had these invitations printed for a celebration in honor of their first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold Certification, which is a certification bestowed upon buildings which meet or surpass rigorous standards for energy efficient and environmentally sustainable design in the architecture community. Bravo, Nestlé! We love working with businesses striving to do good things for the world.
These modern letterpress save the dates are a customization of our Irving design printed in black and French vanilla inks and edge painted in black. Printed for a chic winter wedding in New York City, these save the dates are perfectly suited to a hip modern event.
When we’re working with couples to create their letterpress wedding invitations, we love seeing just how different they make one of our original designs by playing with personal details. This customization of our Champagne invitation is a perfect example of a couple who truly made a design their own. They opted for a subtle cream ink paired with black ink for all of the type on our thick 2-ply cotton paper, with metallic gold edge painting and a luxurious metallic gold envelope liner. It is sophisticated and completely elegant, perfect for their New York City wedding.
Paired with the fuchsia ink, the letterpress invitations and reply cards feature edge painting in plum and a custom patterned envelope liner printed in plum. We also printed fun double-sided custom letterpress coasters to coordinate, printed in fuchsia, which we featured previously on our blog. This suite was fun, unique, and completely tailored to this couple’s event.
In 2009 our New Calligraphy design has become one of our most popular and we love seeing how couples work with our designers and calligrapher to create something truly special for their event. These customized letterpress save the dates both feature the beautiful hand calligraphy of our New Calligraphy design, but beyond that are very different designs.
Printed in black ink on our white cotton paper, this customization is a true pairing of classic elegance and modern sophistication.
This letterpress save the date switches things up a bit with a vertical orientation. It is printed in tea rose ink on our 2-ply ivory cotton paper with edge painting to match.
