Unique Modern Light Letterpress Birthday Invitations

These simple, yet wonderfully unique letterpress birthday invitations sent to us by our friends over at By Invitation Only in Arizona are a real treat!  The set features our Modern Light design (by Ian Koenig) and includes a beautiful invitation to the party as well as a reply card.  Each piece is printed in our espresso ink and has a charming monogram (which show off the initials for the person of honor as well as his birth date) in the top left corner.  Getting these in the mail would be almost as sweet as a slice of the Birthday cake!

Letterpress Avant Invitation Booklets With Tear-out RSVP Postcards

In a really cool twist (literally!) on Ben Whitla‘s original Avant design, this letterpress invitation booklet includes a cover page, an invite page, and an RSVP page that have all been grommeted together into a tidy little package.  The grommet allows the individual pages to swivel open and close and a perforated tear-out RSVP postcard on the last page lets guests reply without having to worry about envelopes.  Great stuff!

Exquisite Surya Letterpress Bar Mitzvah Invitations

This creative Bar Mitzvah invitation was sent to us by our friends over at Lion in the Sun in Brooklyn, New York.  This exquisite set is a wonderful customization for our Surya design (by Tara Hogan).  The choice of our spring green ink and an eye catching custom blue (these colors compliment each other perfectly!) really bring everything together.  Staying true to the overall modern vibe this suite emanates, the client opted for a reply postcard rather than the traditional reply card.  All in all this is one invitation set that really captures the feel of the party to come!

inks: spring green & custom #633| fonts: burgues script + impression | paper: 1-ply white | invite size: SQ-7 | liner: the antique geometrics pattern in custom #633

We recently printed these modern Serenade (by Ian Koenig) letterpress wedding invitations.

From folded thank you notes to website and reply cards this suite simply has it all.
