We’re loving these Moda Contemporary letterpress wedding invitations. Printed in a combination of our pewter and sand inks, the softer color palette is the perfect pairing to the jute colored pocketfold. This particular couple actually chose our smaller square size card (SQ6) to be adhered to the pocketfold, as they liked the idea of the pocketfold creating more of a framed look. We thank our friends over at Urbanic Paper Boutique for sending over these beauties!

Part of what makes calligraphy letterpress invitations so amazing is that each one is always going to be a little different from every other one we’ve ever made before. With each design being painstakingly written out by hand before being digitized and eventually turned into a printing plate for letterpress printing, there’s always bound to be subtle (and beautiful) variations. But there’s unique, and then there’s unique.
Take for instance this design here, featuring the lavish hand calligraphy of the super-talented Sarah Hannah. This design most closely resembles Sarah’s Magnolia design, but despite the family resemblance they’re clearly not the same animal. The couple’s names on this invitation are much more elaborately embellished than usual and the ornate flourishes along the edges of the original design have been dropped entirely. This look is exactly what the bride was going for, and it was completely doable since Sarah was able to understand what she was envisioning and translate it into beautiful calligraphy.

We just adore these recently printed letterpress wedding invitations in our Lumos design (by Ben Whitla). The couple chose to adhere their invitation to a striking black pocketfold. These brilliant pocketfold enclosures hold the couples website card. We love how pronounced the bride and groom’s names look in black ink and the antique gold ink makes for an excellent pairing! Perfect for a black and white wedding theme, these invitations have a spot-on contemporary feel (and check out their save the dates in a previous post)!

These letterpress wedding invitations feature a customization of our Anthology design in rich, fall colors. They were letterpress printed in espresso and antique gold inks with corner rounding, showcased in an espresso pocketfold. A bright cardinal envelope liner is a pretty coordinating touch for these beautiful fall wedding invitations.
Printed in cheerful fuchsia and persimmon inks, this set features our Esperanza letterpress wedding invitation design, new from our 2010 collection. The couple also opted for a bright fuchsia pocketfold and matching envelope liner. In addition to the invitations, we also printed their letterpress programs, escort cards and personalized thank you notes for a complete suite that is vibrant, colorful and perfectly celebratory.
