letterpress printed hand calligraphy wedding invitations

When looking for traditional invitations that will reflect the elegance and formality of your wedding, look no further than calligrapher Sarah Hanna. Joanne and William worked with our friends at Fete Collection to customized Sarah’s Napa design for their recent Massachusetts wedding and the end result is a picture of stationery perfection. Their hand calligraphy wedding invitations were letterpress printed in prussian blue on our ultra thick ivory smooth cotton paper and paired with a solid gold liner and bella blue reply envelopes for a touch of modern flair.

For their recent East Hampton wedding, Claire and Justin worked with our friends at LS Amster to customize our Ophelia design to reflect their seaside venue and intimate celebration.

Pastel letterpress Bat Mitzvah invitations

Our friends at Written and Wrapped helped Hannah and her family customize our Harvest design for her spring Bat Mitzvah celebration. Their sweet and ladylike take on the design feels young and fresh and very different from the rustic elegance of the original. They played up their pastel palette of gray and pink throughout the suite, from the polka dot envelope liner to the subtle hint of pink edging the invitation.

Introducing Arundel: coastal inspired wedding invitations

Just in time for the upcoming summer holiday, we’re introducing you to Racheal Bumbolo‘s latest design, Arundel. “My main source of inspiration came from the Maine coast,” says Racheal. “My family has vacationed near Arundel for the past few summers and I love everything – the shops and small towns and of course the beaches, wharfs, ports, and hiking trails. For this design I imagined a sophisticated coastal soirée in shades of blue and neutral sandy colors reminiscent of the beach. Keeping the typography simple and minimal adds flexibility for this design to fit any venue or occasion.”

Culver reimagined: wedding invitation inspiration from Los Angeles’ arts district

“My main source of inspiration for this customization of Culver was the venue itself and the surrounding arts district of Los Angeles. Cool vibes, art, creativity and innovation abound,” says designer Racheal Bumbolo. A clean slate along with minimalist font treatment sent this one home for me. I feel most comfortable with designs like this; there is just something about quintessential, modern design that puts me in the zone!”
