We’re loving these Moda Contemporary letterpress wedding invitations. Printed in a combination of our pewter and sand inks, the softer color palette is the perfect pairing to the jute colored pocketfold. This particular couple actually chose our smaller square size card (SQ6) to be adhered to the pocketfold, as they liked the idea of the pocketfold creating more of a framed look. We thank our friends over at Urbanic Paper Boutique for sending over these beauties!

Another beautiful run of Ian Koenig‘s La Salle design we printed recently for our friends over at Urbanic Paper Boutique. Love this design in general, and it works really well as a square (the original design‘s shown as a rectangle). This kind of thing (going from rectangle to square) is just one of many customizations we can make to any design for no extra charge.

They’re printed in a subtle blend of Pewter, Charcoal, and Black inks, and also feature a custom envelope liner that we created in-house based on the original design.

This design contest honoree features not one, but two of our letterpress invitation designs! The couple worked with Elizabeth from Urbanic (one of our amazing West-coast retailers) to create a double-sided invitation that featured our True Vintage design for their wedding ceremony invitation, and on the reverse side used our Byzantine design to invite guests to the party back at home in California! Elizabeth gave us the scoop on this pretty set:
The couple wanted to do a double-sided design because they are having two events — the wedding ceremony & celebration in Sweden, and then a reception back here in California. They knew not everyone would be able to attend both, but still wanted them to know they were included!
Since the wedding is in Sweden, there was no question on the use of blue and yellow, along with the crown motif, to pay homage to the country’s history. For the front side (the formal ceremony) they wanted something classic but not too old-fashioned. When they saw True Vintage they knew it was the one! They came to Urbanic knowing they wanted to include the Byzantine border on the backside to add something a little more fun and “beachy” for the California party. We think the combo came out great!
We couldn’t agree more! We loved the way the designs worked together (both original designs were created by Ellie Snow) and the pairing of our navy and champagne inks created a distinct look with a rich, royal feel. The crown motif was repeated on the information card and on the envelopes, and matched the look of both designs perfectly! Kudos to Urbanic for creating such a fabulous customization, and best wishes to Molly and Aaron for their upcoming wedding!
