Our friends at Mulberry Market helped us to these Tawny Matte wedding invitations for Patricia and Christoper. Their June wedding held at St. Agnes Cathedral required an invitation with traditional elements to match. They decided to keep their script font in foil with the rest of the elements in our Prussian Blue letterpress ink. The reply card as well as the reception card followed suit in terms of color palette. To mimic the envelope liner, the details card used a vintage print backdrop with Prussian Blue letterpress ink overtop. Finally, a belly-band kept all the insert cards together with a monogram tag added with a final foil touch.
We spotted Kelly and Drew’s classic monogrammed wedding invitations on Martha Stewart Weddings and we’re excited to share a peek into their day. The couple worked with our friend Heidi at Engraved Images who made their vision of a traditional yet personalized suite come to fruition. From the engagement ring to the envelope liner Kelly imagined and designer Chelsea Culmann brought to life – the couple effortlessly tied their families together in more ways than one. The envelope liner highlighted each state they have roots in, a symbol of the Pentagon where the couple first met, and a Celtic knot to feature their Irish backgrounds. Both the invitation suite and their wedding reflected what it means to bring families together in paper and in person. Be sure to check out even more on Martha Stewart Weddings!

Thanks to the help of our friends at Magnificent Milestones, Sarah and Stephen’s vision for timeless foil stamped wedding invitations came to life beautifully. The wedding was held at the University Club of Chicago, a classic venue which called for an equally classic invitation such as this reflecting an elegant affair to come. The couple chose a design reminiscent of Maeve and it was printed in Gold Matte foil with Bella Blue paper used as the backdrop. Their reply card was kept on the simpler side and printed in Navy letterpress to coordinate with the invitation. Guests will be pleasantly surprised to find the initials of the bride and groom intertwined as they open their envelope to reveal a gold leaf metallic envelope liner.

Amanda is a freelance graphic designer and art-director based in Chicago. She is the co-creator and founding designer of Kinfolk Magazine. Amanda’s favorite projects to design are books, cookbooks and periodicals, but she also does company branding and web design. Read on to learn more about her path to design!
My mom is a photographer so I’d work as her assistant during the summers. That started my path to the arts. The stress of photographing weddings lead me to study something that was a little more laid back, and that’s why I chose design. I studied at Brigham Young University and then interned at a couple places before joining a design firm after graduation. Two years after working full-time, I jumped ship and started my freelance career. It was terrifying, but it was also one of the best decisions I could have ever made.
I like to think I have a classic / modern mix. I think I lean toward the masculine side of design – and often go with the mantra less is more.
I generally work from home. I’m a newish mom and for me, it’s the perfect situation. I get to be with my daughter during the day and get my work done in the morning, evenings and nap time.
When it comes to finding inspiration, I have a ton of design books – old and new – that I love to flip through. When I’m in a design rut, I’ll put on a new album or go for a walk. Fresh air always seems to fix a brain block.
What I think is great the longer I’m in the design industry is how more and more – it’s ok to break the rules. In college studying design, I was always worried I was “breaking the rules” of design. But really, some of the best stuff out there doesn’t follow any rules.

Our friends at Cambridge Street Papers worked with Christina and Stephen on their art deco inspired wedding invitations, customizing our Oberon design for their November wedding. We used the pattern that is subtly printed on the original Oberon design to create a bold border that was foil stamped in tawny matte foil. The couple’s font-inspired duogram was printed at the top of their invitation as well as on their metallic white gold envelope liner, further personalizing their elegant suite.
