classic black letterpress wedding invitations for New York City wedding

Colleen and Matthew worked with our friends at Ipanema Press to create these classic black letterpress wedding invitations for their New York City wedding. They started with our ever-popular Deveril design but opted for a vertical layout on ivory paper for an ultra formal feel. They added a blind debossed border and an elegant flourish in tawny foil. Together with black envelopes and a black and tawny foil stamped liner, these simple additions exuded sophistication and understated elegance.

Introducing Everly: elegant and ethereal garden wedding invitation inspiration

Designer Jessica Downs drew inspiration from an elegant and ethereal garden wedding when creating her Everly design. “I imagined a wedding filled with natural greenery, golden candlesticks with illuminating candles, and soft textures of linen and silk in lovely shades of ivory and white,” says Jessica. Those delicate textures inspired a design of classic typography printed in a neutral shade of gray with a custom ivy monogram and a coordinating envelope liner in soft shades of green.

copper foil and gray letterpress rehearsal dinner invitations

Jessica and Tyler celebrated with family and friends on the eve of their wedding with cocktails and jazz at Bevolo Gas & Electric Lights Museum and Showroom in the heart of the French Quarter. With the help of our friends at Mrs. Post Fine Stationery & Gifts we customized our Heathcliff design with a copper lantern and a palette of copper and gray that mimicked the warmth of their unique venue. An enclosure card invited guests to coffee the morning after the wedding, and an industrial inspired pattern was used to tie in the digital and foil stamped envelope liner in the same vintage palette.

Sampson reimagined: marble inspired wedding invitations

Designer Racheal Bumbolo was drawn to Atlanta’s Swan House when concepting her Sampson design. “My main sources of inspiration were marble tiles, golden accents, and the grace of elegant mansions. Swan House was made with entertainment in mind with its carefully thought out architecture and design – a place to easily be inspired by. The mansion, constructed at the end of the Jazz Age, inspired me to bring in a touch of vintage via the marble pattern and the storybook-like wording. Pairing that with a modern layout brings a fresh look to the design.”

Introducing Rosette: secret garden inspired wedding invitations

Our Rosette design is a secret garden come to life, complete with romantic roses, gold highlights, and vintage inspired typography.

“When creating Rosette I was inspired by old world castles and secret gardens,” says designer Lindsy Talarico. “Think dimly lit rooms filled with fresh roses and hidden passageways leading to an overgrown garden blanketed with fog.”
