Galen and Matthew customized our Astoria design for their Maine wedding, opting for a less formal color palette and more whimsical type treatment. These watercolor wedding invitations were digitally printed in spring green ink with navy letterpress on our Bella Smooth Cotton paper. A coordinating navy envelope liner tied the whole set together.

The idyllic landscape of Cedar Lakes Estate was the backdrop for Rebecca and Brant’s recent summertime wedding. Using our Bradley design as inspiration they chose a palette of atlantic, pansy and british rose inks as the backdrop to our copper shine foil, digitally printing on our Bella Smooth cotton paper. A coordinating enveloper liner was the finishing touch on these watercolor wedding invitations.

We are thrilled to share a recent collaboration that we worked on with Nole Garey from Oh So Beautiful Paper. We foil stamped the birth announcements for her family’s newest addition using Rose Gold Shine foil on our new white Bella Smooth Cotton paper. Rose gold foil stamped envelope liners in our elegant garden pattern lined jute envelopes, which were later calligraphed with beautiful white ink.
After we printed and edge painted Alice’s birth announcements, we shipped them off to Jenna Rainey of Mon Voir calligraphy. Jenna provided the calligraphy for the names on the announcement as well as the envelope addressing, and after we printed everything she hand painted each card with the prettiest pastels. Each piece was subtly unique, with varying color combinations and brush strokes.
Nole included a photo of baby Alice with the announcement, and used Angela Liguori’s gold metallic line cotton ribbon to tie everything together!
Many thanks to Nole for including us on this project! Visit Oh So Beautiful Paper for more details on these beautiful birth announcements.

Inspired by lush florals and vibrant shades of pink and orange, Mariel Mirra began her design process for Blush with a paintbrush. This watercolor wedding invitation suite features hand-painted watercolors that we digitally printed on our new Bella Smooth Cotton paper, with gold matte foil and Holcombe style calligraphy accents adding some glamour. For a Blush inspired wedding, Mariel envisions lots of colorful flowers, festive ribbon streamers and the occasional pop of metallic gold. To see even more of the inspiration behind the design, check out Mariel’s Blush Pinterest board!
