Write on Sarasota helped us bring these tawny foil save the dates with a vellum overlay to life. The couple married at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Florida this past May. A venue surrounded by palm trees and Floridian flair. Their tawny foil save the dates matched the vibe of their venue with palms placed throughout. A small foil palm tree motif kept the save the date clean yet still appropriate. The vellum overlay added design interest giving a peek inside to the save the date. With the gold grommet at the top, this save the date became interactive for the guest receiving it. They opted for our Capri digital ink on the vellum overlay which added a pop of tropical color to the Tawny foil. Finally, the envelope liner also features a similar palm pattern in Capri as a nod to the vellum overlay.
Ryan and Dan wanted a striking save the date to set the tone for their Boston wedding. In addition, they had important information about their wedding weekend and website to share with their guests. By choosing our Lumos wedding invitation design and customizing a 2-piece grommeted save the date card, they were able to incorporate their wedding details on a swing away card underneath the modern, industrial inspired save the date. Pewter letterpress and silver shine foil on our 2-ply Bella Cotton paper made for an edgy, monochromatic ensemble.

What could be cooler than a two page letterpress save the date booklet that’s grommeted together in the corner so it swivels open and shut? I don’t have a followup for that intro, but personally I think these are pretty rad. It’s a great way to include additional details and to make the whole card interactive and fun. This set is a customization of one of Amy Graham Stigler‘s designs, Gramercy, and besides the grommeted save the date it also features letterpress invitations with a pocketfold and a design-coordinated envelope liner. We owe the privilege of printing this beautiful set to the lovely bunch at Union Street Papery.

In a really cool twist (literally!) on Ben Whitla‘s original Avant design, this letterpress invitation booklet includes a cover page, an invite page, and an RSVP page that have all been grommeted together into a tidy little package. The grommet allows the individual pages to swivel open and close and a perforated tear-out RSVP postcard on the last page lets guests reply without having to worry about envelopes. Great stuff!

Letterpress booklets are hands down one of the coolest things we get to work on around here. I mean come on, a personalized letterpress booklet just for your wedding – what could be more awesome than that? Submitted for your approval, is by far one of the nicest ones we’ve been able to work on.
To welcome their guests to a destination wedding in Bali, this couple had us custom design and print ceremony programs and welcome booklets loaded with all kinds of amazing touches. The programs are composed of two double-sided pages (one fits inside the other) with a score line in the middle and hole drilling so that they can be assembled together with ribbon. The 7 page welcome booklets are bound together with brass grommets and include a subtly patterned one piece cover that wraps around the spine of the booklet. What’s inside the booklet you ask? Pretty much a condensed Lonely Planet! They included all the details their guests might have possibly needed for a wedding in this island paradise, right down to a primer in basic Indonesian and a list of all the local hot spots. The entire set is printed on our white paper in a combination of Cream ink and a custom mix of Pantone 618 ink.

To coordinate with their booklet letterpress invitations, we worked with Jennifer and Aret to create special letterpress pieces for their wedding weekend. A welcome booklet detailed weekend events and details and we also printed tea length letterpress dinner menus and table number cards. Oversized letterpress thank you cards (which will later hold a wedding photo) were the perfect finishing touch. Everything was printed in clover and blind deboss on our white cotton paper for a chic and completely sophisticated look.
There is something really fun about working with couples to print letterpress save the dates for their upcoming weddings – they’re often newly engaged and completely excited as they delve into wedding planning. So, when we recently had the opportunity to print these awesome save the dates, we were beyond thrilled. In our Majorca design, printed in cream and garden inks, these save the dates actually feature two cards in our reply card size that are then fastened together with a grommet, a simple yet completely unique feature that we love!
The first card features basic save the date information including the wedding date and location – the date is emphasized in large serif type for a look that is clean and modern.
The second card features detailed lodging and travel information for guests traveling from out of town. Providing such details can prove immensely useful for guests as they prepare to join you for your celebration.
This kind of truly customized letterpress save the date is our favorite to print – we love seeing couples take our designs and play with font and sizes and colors to totally reinvent something that is perfect for their unique event.
