A Birthday to Go Down in History

We designed and printed these Save the Dates for a birthday party at the American Museum of Natural History, here in NYC. The design was inspired by vintage circus posters, complete with a banner carrying elephant. The elephant was letterpress printed in silver, and has a bit of shine that plays well with the bright red of the text. We can just imagine how fun a night at the museum would be - hopefully without any dinosaurs or elephants springing to life.

Black & Neon Green Floral Wedding

We always love mixing the formal and the fun in our designs, as is the case with these letterpress wedding invitations. The type is classic and clean, printed in a rich black - beautiful on its own, but throw in a little fluorescent green and the whole design changes. A lovely, vintage floral illustration with an acid green accent tops the card. Can't decide on a formal or modern invitation? This design is the best of both worlds!

Custom Coasters for Logan Holland

We printed these custom letterpress coasters for women's wear designer, Logan Holland recently. They have a simple, but striking logo that looks wonderful printed in rich, black ink. Coasters are always fun to print because they show off the beauty of letterpress, by taking a good deal of impression.

We enjoy working with small, local businesses in NYC and Brooklyn, especially when they are in an industry that is as hands-on as ours!

Rose & Gold Locket Wedding Suite

We recently designed a letterpress wedding suite for a couple getting married in Southern California. They had a beautiful color theme of dusty rose with gold accents, and loved the vintage heart locket illustration in our collection. A custom script monogram sets off their simply classic wedding invitations.

Bees, Bees, Bees

We've got bees on the brain! We printed these lovely little bees in black on mini manila tags. They were wrapped up with black and white baker's twine around gifts of honey. A nice extra touch to an already thoughtful gift.

These bee coasters are part of our Butterflies & Bug coaster sets, available on our site. They're such a bright sunny color, you can't help but smile when you see them. The Bee Thank You card is part of our Gray Gardens Card Set, also available online. It comes with 7 other nature inspired letterpress cards, all printed in neon colors.

This custom bee stationery is very sweet, and no image could be more fitting for the name! The little bee looks great printed in red ink.

Marching into Spring

We're finally starting to see little signs of Spring everywhere, and that has us seeing green. We have a lot of green on our online shop, like these letterpress clover and beetle greeting cards and new clover coasters. A beetle is only this cute when its printed on a card in neon green, and not scurrying around your home!

Post Wedding Thank You Notes

After the wedding, once you've returned from your honeymoon sun-kissed and relaxed, there's still one thing left to do for your wedding - send out thank you notes! There's nothing nicer than receiving a handwritten thank you note, especially when it's on custom, letterpress stationery. You can include your monogram, new last name or an image that relates to your invitations, like this New York City note card.

Get started on those thank you notes right away and work on them little by little. Thank anyone who attended or sent a gift, exceptional vendors and most importantly, whoever hosted your wedding. They have been with you through thick and thin, while planning this event - let them know how much you appreciate their help.

Antique Letterpress Bookmarks

We have a line of letterpress bookmarks based on antique personal objects, like a pair of scissors, perfume bottle or glove. We love using these bookmarks and they make really cute gifts for any bookworm. Typically we print them in bright, cheery colors, but we recently did some gold versions for The Metropolitan Museum of Art, here in New York.

We have these bookmarks die cut into the shape of the antique object first, and then we print them one by one on our Golding Jobber in a beautiful, copper gold ink.

These gold bookmarks are sold exclusively at the Metropolitan, although you can find the original, brightly colored ones on our online shop. If you are a bride or groom with a passion for reading, consider using these as favors for your wedding!

Staten Island Wedding

This letterpress wedding suite was custom designed for a couple getting married on Staten Island. Black and matte gold ink is one of our favorite and most popular combinations, and it looks beautiful printed on their set. A gold envelope liner adds a little luxury to the whole design. The vintage illustration of the Staten Island Ferry printed on top of the invite is a fun element, too!

Rabbit Letterpress Bookmark

We printed these sweet letterpress bookmarks celebrating the release of a book by Brooke Dierkhising called Many Ways to See the Sun. The illustrations of the rabbit and feather were originally watercolors, and they look beautiful printed in this cheerful blue.

Here's a close up of the bookmark while on press. The blue ink is so striking on the rollers and the plate, but softens a bit when printed on a warm white paper.

Nautical Save the Date

We're in the midst of working on many letterpress wedding suites right now, as these summer weddings will be here before we know it! We love the combination of a vintage map and classic script type on this nautical save the date. The map is printed in a pale dusty blue and the information in strong navy blue, with a sweet little heart to mark the location of the wedding. It's a simple design, but we think it's perfect for a summer wedding in the Hamptons!

Bright Confetti Dots Wedding Invite

We designed these letterpress wedding invitations for a photoshoot, and just love them. The confetti dots are printed in a sort of ikat pattern, in complementary colors and a modern type treatment. We can't decide if we like the design in shades of blue, or neon pink and peach more. Both versions are a fun and modern take on a wedding invitation, perfect for a couple having a casual summer event.
