Here's a peek into the process of printing some floral save the dates for a fall wedding. These save the dates were printed as postcards, with a beautiful large floral image on the front and the necessary information on the back. We printed the text in a wine red as, and a warm tint of gray for the large flower. It feels like the perfect color comination for an end of summer wedding at a vineyard.
Thank you Victoria Magazine for including our Butterfly greeting cards in the July/August issue!
What a great issue to read in the backyard on a Summer Day. Our cards are available on our website shop here: shop
I've fallen in love with the echinacea plants in my garden this summer. The colors are crazy bright and they're always surrounded by butterflies and bees and the occasional bird. I've lost a lot of time this summer just watching. Unfortunately, they're starting to fade but to pay homage to this plant, we've created a new greeting card to add to our garden line. Here's a "behind the scenes" peak into the printing process at our studio.
These monogram heart & arrow notecards are a sweet way to thank all your wedding guests for their love and support. A bespoke monogram paired with an image that symbolizes a couple's relationship is a great way to customize letterpress stationery.
All the invitations in our collection are designed to be customized and we approach the design process as a creative collaboration between our studio and each couple we work with. This Cape Cod invitation was based on our Pictorial design, which is our most flexible design to personalize. We layed out the invitation to feature a vintage drawing of Cape Cod at the top of the card and added Amanda and Daniel's initials to the illustration. They chose a mint blue colored ink and paired it with matte gold. This was not a combination we'd printed in the past but I love the way it turned out and I will definitely be recommending it to other couples in the future!
Thank you New York Magazine Weddings for including our wedding invitation in the Spring/Summer invitation feature "9 Wedding Invitations With a Touch of Wild"!
Here's a sneak peek of some beautiful sea blue wedding invitations we've been working on! Its always so wonderful to see a stack of brightly colored edge painted cards. We love the simple nautical icon, paired with classic type. Its the perfect touch for a seaside wedding in late summer.
Nothing compares to New England in the summertime! Salty air, swimming in the ocean, boats, etc... It’s my favorite place to be this season and I love when we use this inspiration to design stationery for couples getting married along the coast.
We’re sticking with the seaside stationery theme this month and wanted to share some of our favorite nautical save the date announcements from years past.
It's a gorgeous summer day - perfect for chilled rosé and some seaside coasters!
We are in love with these script wedding invitations for a Cape Cod wedding! Eileen and Mustafa wanted a design that was both elegant and touched on tradition, while using a slightly more modern script font. We added touches of nautical flair, in the form of an anchor and a vintage map of Cape Cod. The whole set was letterpress printed in navy ink on bright white paper, for a beautiful contrast.
We're debuting these beautiful new note cards on our website this summer. The Branches stationery set features a pretty floral wreath with a custom monogram printed inside. We love the bright green ink on these cards, contrasted with the brilliant white paper. It creates such a lovely, and summery feeling. These note cards would be a wonderful gift for a new bride, celebrating her shower or even anyone with a summer birthday! For more photos and information, check them out on our website here.
We have some cute new greeting cards this summer! These two small notes are both great thank you cards to send to any party host or even as your post baby or bridal shower notes. The bright pink strawberry and blue ship in a bottle are both hand letterpressed onto bright white paper and come with a matching blank envelope. You can pick them up from our online shop here!
We worked with a wonderful couple to create these elegant invitations for their wedding this summer. The beautiful swashes of the script font, paired with a sweet dotted border is simply beautiful! We found a vintage map of Long Island that worked perfectly as an envelope liner. The whole set was letterpress printed in a lovely dusty blue, custom matched to the bridesmaids' dresses.
We designed and printed a new set of NYC themed stationery to celebrate Earth Day this year. These notecards are bright and cheerful with iconic bits of our fair city as the inspiration. Pink pigeons, blue bikes and a perfectly green Statue of Liberty shine bright on brilliant white paper. Each set comes with one of each five cards and a matching blank envelope. Pick one up in our online shop here!
If you're struggling to find a gift for the dad who has it all, we have you covered! Show your father your appreciation for those driving lessons, pre-interview pep talks and so much more with some custom note cards. We have gift certificates available, so he can pick out his own cards later and you get the credit for giving a gift on time! Letterpress stationery doesn't have to be serious, either! Take a look at these cool dad-friendly cards, with a salmon printed in rich black ink.
We love vintage maps, for their hand drawn detail and classic look, so its no surprise that we're really into these Cape Cod Save the Date cards! The cape is such a beautiful destination for a summertime wedding. These letterpress cards give a nod to the nautical, without going over the top with the theme. The map is printed in a dusty blue, with navy text on top for some interesting layering. A navy heart marks the spot of the nuptials in Harwich, Massachusetts.
With the end of school here, letterpress stationery is a must have for graduates. A cute monogram or a fun illustration is a great way to say thanks with a bit of style. We're loving these yellow sunglasses notecards because they're bright and cheerful, and have us looking forward to some fun in the sun. Nothing cooler than some shades to say thanks!
Blue Hill at Stone Barns is such a beautiful venue outside of New York. Surrounded by a farm and fresh country air, it feels much further than 30 miles from NYC. This lovely couple wanted to reference the farm and barn of the venue in their Save the Dates, so we printed a gorgeous illustration of a dairy cow in the background of their card. We layered a dusty blue ink on top for the text, resulting in a very soft effect. A barn was the perfect accent to the envelope.
We've added a few new designs to our wedding collection this year, and we're so excited about them! Wildflowers is a letterpress invitation set inspired by a lush flower garden, full of all sorts of floral beauties. The invitation card has a gorgeous floral border that we printed in black ink, so you can really see all of the details. The text is printed in a pale pink for a nice contrast and to soften the look.
We added a really pretty rose to the envelope liner, and printed it in a tint of pink on some pale pink paper. Its such a nice surprise when you open the envelope! Another detail is the belly band, adorned with daisies and the wedding website information. These pieces really complete the set for a luxe invitation experience.
