Connemara letterpress invitations with Arabic Calligraphy

We get to work with amazing people from every corner of this beautiful world on a daily basis, but it’s not everyday we get to ship invitations all the way to Bahrain (and that’s too bad really).  These Connemara (by Beth Ann Seal) letterpress wedding invitations are printed larger than our largest standard invitation sizes.  Measuring in at an impressive 8.25″ x 8.25″ they’re so big in fact that we needed to run them on our larger 13″ x 18″ Heidelberg Windmill press (affectionately nicknamed ‘Hindenburg‘ by our printers because it tends to be a little cranky).  Sea Mist and Navy inks,  Metallic Gold edge painting, rounded corners, and hand calligraphed Arabic text, all come together beautifully here on our 2-ply ivory paper.  We particularly love the way the fluid Arabic calligraphy compliments the repeating floral motif of the background.
