neutral letterpress wedding invitations with floral accents

We worked with Sue Corral Ink to create these neutral letterpress wedding invitations with floral accents for Amanda and James. They opted for a Desert letterpress ink color which they carried through to the reply set as well. The neutral palette allowed for a pop of color on the invitation as well as the envelope liner. They dressed up the monogram with florals around the perimeter of the cartouche. Lastly, the same floral theme carried onto the envelope liner kept everything consistent and harmonious.

fuchsia and black letterpress bat mitzvah invitations

We worked with Urban Coast who helped us create Sarah’s fuchsia and black letterpress Bat Mitzvah invitations. They used the big apple as their inspiration for this set. A sketchy skyline printed at the bottom of the invitation added playful interest. Sarah’s name in Fuchsia kept the invitation youthful as well as a feminine touch. A donation card with the statue of liberty pictured in the right to keep with the New York theme. We have no doubt everyone started spreading the news about her big day once they received their sets in the mail!

rose gold wedding invitations with navy touches

Ashlee and Kevin envisioned rose gold wedding invitations and that is exactly what Oliver’s Twist helped us bring to life. Inspired by Maeve, the couple made this design their own by adding a border in Rose Gold Shine. They used a flood of Navy ink for the insert card so that the letters popped off the page. The reply set they kept consistent in Navy as well to match the rest of the set. The couple decided to add a belly-band in Marsala to keep everything organized in one place.

tropical gold foil wedding invitations with watercolor accents

We worked with Shindig Paperie to create these tropical gold foil wedding invitations for Courtney and Blake’s big day. With a wedding backdrop of Hawaii, we couldn’t imagine a better fit design-wise than our Palmetto design. The couple customized the design by adding watercolor accents to the reply card as well as the envelope liner. The entire invitation printed in Gold Matte foil kept the design classic yet still contained a nod to Hawaii with the palm motif at the top. Watercolor green palm motifs on the reply card added a touch of color to this otherwise gold set. Finally, the custom envelope liner gave this suite a splash of tropical colors to tie everything together.

calligraphy letterpress wedding invitations in blackberry and deep blue

Each letter within a calligraphed word is completely unique. Molly and Lawrence’s calligraphy letterpress wedding invitations are certainly no exception to that one-of-a-kind nature. The couple worked with our friends at Lee’s Specialty who helped their vision come to life. The future newlyweds decided on a deep purple as well as rich blue color palette. Our Blackberry ink used on the invitation matched that of the reply and brunch cards. Deep Blue used on the welcome dinner and other reply card completed the suite. Additionally, our Opaline marble pattern envelope liner tied this color palette together. As a final wow factor, a matching belly-band in the same marble pattern kept everything in one place.

pink letterpress birthday invitations

A first birthday requires a celebration and an invitation to match! Luciana’s pink letterpress birthday invitations set the tone of her party to come. Her family worked with Magnificent Milestones who helped bring their design to life. The typography printed in Fuchsia letterpress ink kept the design playful as well as light. While a variance of pink hues printed digitally brought different shades to a more monochromatic palette. Finally, a return address digitally printed in Cherry Blossom kept everything harmonious.
