Our Keswick (by Beth Ann Seal) letterpress wedding invitations are given a modern color twist in this quirky customization. Letterpress printed in garden and clover inks, they are perfectly contrasted with shocking pops of mesa edge paint on all pieces (yes that’s right every card). This couple also benefited from our 10% off promotion (10% off if you purchase 6 printed pieces). See more details and the small print here!

Shocker alert – we’re pretty heavily into environmental conservation over here (big news, right?). Everything from the tree-free cotton papers we print on, to the wind powered electricity we use, to our vegetable based inks and more is intended to minimize our impact on the natural world in every way we can possibly think of. And so with that being the case, how could we not be totally all about this amazing naturally inspired Deveril (by Beth Ann Seal) customization! We owe the pleasure of being able to print this beautiful set to our buds over at Sweet Paper in La Jolla, California. It features espresso ink, our white 2-ply paper, and custom designed wood grain envelope liners inspired by our Adirondack design. There’s also a little secret pocket on the back of the invite to hold the reception card, website card, and reply card neatly in place! The whole set is earthy and organic feeling, but not in a kitschy kind of way because it’s still a very classic and formal looking set. We dig it. Hope you do too!

The invitation features the Clermont style hand calligraphy penned by the absolutely one-of-a-kind Debi Zienert. Hand calligraphy is a beautiful way to add a personal touch to your invitations. We think you’ll agree that the marigold and prussian blue inks contrast beautifully against one another. Paired with a stellar envelope lining adds yet another splash of color! The bride says, “the invitations you helped us select perfectly captured our vision of a bright and colorful, yet elegant wedding.” We couldn’t agree more-this set is sure fire hit!

I don’t think you’ll ever come across a more vintage inspired letterpress wedding invitation! Our Harlow design (by Jessica Tierney) looks especially timeless here with its own touch of flair. We have a weakness for wedding invitations with clean lines that still hold true to that romantic feel. We can never get enough of a vibrant pop of color-and the aubergine edge painting beautifully contrasts with the pewter ink. Paired with the perfect envelope lining -means tossing in another cool customization! These invitations are perfect for a wedding venue so rich in history.

Little-known fact: We can actually letterpress your own press-ready artwork for no additional charge!
