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

Surya and Sailboat Letterpress Save the Dates

Rounding out our posts of fun letterpress save the dates for the week, these are two cool customizations we printed for weddings this past summer. The first is our Surya design printed in rich amethyst and pool inks. We love this pairing of pretty jewel tones and suspect this will be a continuing trend in the months to come.

This letterpress save the date is a really fun customization of our Sailboat design in garden and navy inks. It’s really the perfect save the date for this couple’s wedding, which took place in the beautiful Thousand Islands region of Upstate NY, not too far from our studio in Syracuse.
