Coastal wedding Save the Dates

We are big fans of nautical and maritime imagery and it features on so many of our printed items. From our octopus coasters to our deluxe anchor notecard sets, we love finding ways to reference the sea in our work. So obviously, we adore working with couples to incorporate their vision of the coast into their printed stationery. We've recently worked with two lovely couples on their Save the Date cards.

Meaghan and Andre fell for our ship in a bottle illustration and it just looks so pretty at the top of their card:

We're always happy to include a small motif above the return address on the envelope too. Continuing the seaside theme, Meaghan and Andre opted for a little clam shell:

We love how this Save the Date looks and we can't wait to share photos of their actual wedding invitations!

Erin and Owen also used a dark blue ink for their design (does anything signify the ocean more than a nice, rich, saturated blue?). But they decided to create a truly bespoke card with hand drawn illustrations and handwritten lettering. They also included pops of vivid red:

The little seagull perched on the map in the lower left corner just makes us feel so happy! Here's a close up of part of the map to show the intricacy of the illustrations and the letterpress impression:

We're so excited to hear all about both of these weddings!
