Nautical Portsmouth Wedding

Happy first wedding anniversary to Andrea & James! We can’t believe it has already been a year since printing these beautiful blue save the dates and invitations. They were married at a country club on the coast in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The vintage map of the NH coastline looks gorgeous printed in a tint of slate blue ink on the save the dates. Their invitation set took a more formal tone, with all navy printing and a double border. We kept with the nautical theme by creating a “monogram” using two maritime flags, that was used on the invitations and thank you notes.

Cape Cod Maritime Wedding

Congrats to Caitlin to Teddy on their wedding in charming Chatham, Massachusetts this weekend! We have a love for Cape Cod, so this seaside wedding seems like a dream. They chose our Maritime design, complete with flying seagulls and a vintage map envelope liner. Their invitations were printed in navy and slate blue ink on warm white paper, and feel perfectly suited to a Cape Cod wedding.

Chatham, Cape Cod Wedding

Congratulations to Amy & Jimmy on their Cape Cod wedding! The Cape has a special place in our hearts, so we always love designing invitations for weddings here. Allison & Jimmy chose our Hudson design, which we printed in a slate and navy blue combination. They requested an event card, to illustrate their weekend of events, complete with a Karaoke After-Party! Each event was detailed with a vintage illustration.

We also printed their Save the Date cards prior to the invitations. We printed a tinted embossed map of Cape Cod in the background, with navy ink on top. We never tire of printing these map cards!

Romantic Rose Hudson

A big congratulations to Maeve and Matthew for their wedding in Vermont his weekend! They wanted to use a combine a few elements from some different designs, so we came up with this customized, romantic version of our Hudson design. The envelopes were lined in a pale blush paper with a pink rose printed on them, to match the floral icon on the invitation card.

Nautical Nantucket Wedding

Congrats to Meg & Michael on their wedding this weekend in Nantucket! For their formal affair, they chose a classic design in navy ink, with elements perfect for a Cape Cod wedding - waves and a vintage map of the island. We printed a full suite for them, including Save the Date cards, a weekend itinerary, Rehearsal Dinner invites and a menu for the day of.

Cape Cod Farm Wedding

Congratulations to Cara & Brendan for their wedding this past weekend on Cape Cod! We used a variation on our Pictorial design, printing all the cards in navy ink. On the invitation card, we used a hand-drawn image of a barn from, that they provided. Its always a nice touch to have a custom image included in your suite. On the rsvp card, we added a space for song requests, which is a fun way to have your guests include a handwritten note on their response.

Green Laurel Wreath

Here are some pictures of a beautiful set of wedding invitations we designed last year for Hilary and Chris. They chose the Laurel Wreath design in a bright summer green with their monogram as the main imagery. Its hard to believe their wedding was last summer!

Newport, Rhode Island Save the Date

We printed these beautiful sea-inspired Save the Date cards for Valery and Chris for their summer wedding in Newport, Rhode Island. They opted for a bright, nautical blue paired with charcoal ink and a great wave illustration. They had the great idea to include an enclosure card to encourage guests to book their rooms early. These cards can be especially helpful for a wedding taking place in a popular location, like Newport in the summer.

Martha's Vineyard Wedding

Congratulations to Sarah and Dan on their wedding this weekend! We loved working with them on their simple and sweet invitation set. They wanted to add illustrations to each of their cards to show off the theme of the event, like the lobster on the welcome dinner card and coffee on a farewell breakfast card. What a perfect weekend!

Elegant Nantucket Wedding

Congratulations to Nina and Andrew for their Nantucket wedding this weekend! We really enjoyed working with them to come up with this beautifully soft design. The elegant calligraphy for the names and other lines of text was done by Megan Fahy. We then scanned this and added it to our design. The wave and seagulls were printed in a very pale tint of ink to keep the focus on the soft blue text.

Nautical Newport Save the Date

Here's a great close up of a save the date we printed recently for a summertime wedding in Rhode Island. We love the little website card with a ship in a bottle image printed in striking blue ink. The save the date features a detailed wave illustration that fits the card perfectly.

Hamptons Vineyard Wedding

We shared a sneak peek of this design earlier, but wanted to congratulate Tara & Adam on their recent wedding! Here are some more detail shots of the beautiful invitation set for their Hamptons Vineyard nuptials. We love the illustrated grapevine, paired with a fun script for their names. This was such a fun project for us because we got to work on so many different pieces, like a custom map of the Hamptons, a fun itinerary card, favor tags, and even coasters!

The custom map is a really sweet addition, highlighting the locations for the Welcome Drinks, Wedding and Sunday Brunch, as well as Sag Harbor Bay, Bridgehampton and East Hampton.

We printed these cute little favor tags for the mini bottles of Wolffer Estate wine that the guests would receive. They were tied onto the bottles with this exquisite orange ribbon from Studio Carta. The letterpress coasters were also a customthat highlights the date, along with a memorable toast. These were such a nice treat to take home from the weekend!

Cape Cod Wedding

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! 

Letterpress Printing in Shades of Blue Ink

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.

Cape Cod Wedding Set

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. 

Cape Cod Map Save the Date

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.

Nautical Bookmark Save the Date

We are in love with Save the Dates that double as bookmarks. Not only are they a unique design, but they're useful, too! If you're planning on a more formal invitation, the Save the Date is a great opportunity to have a little fun. Show off your personality with brighter colors, or a fun image that reflects the feeling of the venue.

We love these bookmark Save the Dates for a summertime wedding in Maine. The bright red and navy blue along with the vintage ship illustration ink feel perfectly nautical. The rope knot on the bottom is such a sweet detail, too.
