Foil and Letterpress Gramercy Invitations

Decked out with some of Debi Zeinert‘s gorgeous Spencerian calligraphy accents, this is a great spin on Amy Graham Stigler‘s original Gramercy design. Not only did our friends at Magnificent Milestones send us this customization but they dreamed it up for one of their very own! Now if you’re lucky enough to get one of these in the mail you’ve just got to ask yourself one question: am I a cow person, or a carrot person?

Gramercy Letterpress Save the Date Booklets and Invitations

What could be cooler than a two page letterpress save the date booklet that’s grommeted together in the corner so it swivels open and shut?  I don’t have a followup for that intro, but personally I think these are pretty rad.  It’s a great way to include additional details and to make the whole card interactive and fun.  This set is a customization of one of Amy Graham Stigler‘s designs, Gramercy, and besides the grommeted save the date it also features letterpress invitations with a pocketfold and a design-coordinated envelope liner.  We owe the privilege of printing this beautiful set to the lovely bunch at Union Street Papery.
