Flourish Letterpress Wedding Invitations in Espresso + Wisteria

Some times things work best just the way they are.  That seems to be the case with the Flourish design (by Jamie Lea Bertsch).  Brenda Himmel Stationery had the foresight to simply infuse a little bit of espresso and wisteria inks and the result speaks for itself.

Letterpress Directions + Accommodations Cards

We thought we’d share a fun round up of some of the awesome letterpress directions and accommodations cards we’ve printed in recent months. Some of them include maps and other details and some of them simply refer guests to a website with lots of extra information to make their travel easier. Accommodations cards are especially helpful if you’ve negotiated group rates at local hotels so guests know where to book their room. Check out these ideas for tons of great letterpress inspiration!

This pretty letterpress wedding invitation is our Flourish design printed in persimmon and atlantic inks.

Fabulous Letterpress Ceremony Programs

Recently we’ve had the pleasure of printing a whole bunch of really great letterpress ceremony programs. In different shapes and sizes and featuring a whole array of different designs, each one is personalized with the colors, fonts and designs perfect for each individual couple and their event.

These double-sided programs are in our Suyra design, printed in deep blue and butter yellow inks. They were a full F8 size, the same as our larger-sized invitations, to allow the couple to really maximize the amount of information they could include. In this case, the back of the program featured details on the members of their wedding party.

Decidedly modern in our Flourish design printed in persimmon, these 1-color double-sided ceremony programs are a true reflection of the event this couple was planning. They are fun and whimsical while still perfectly appropriate for their traditional church ceremony.

Perfect for a more formal event, these letterpress programs in our Plume design feature deep blue and antique gold inks and the undeniable flair of hand calligraphy accents. Like the Flourish letterpress programs above, these were double-sided letterpress on our tea length size. We love the elegance a lovely letterpress ceremony program can add to a wedding and look forward to printing many many more.
