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!

San Francisco City Bus Wedding Invitations

Congratulations to our Britt and Tony on their wedding a couple weeks ago! We worked with them on a variety of letterpress stationery for their San Francisco wedding, including these announcements and bookmarks. They have a really sweet story about meeting on a city bus, and wanted to incorporate that into the design of their stationery. The image of the bus became a fun recurring element, as well as the map of San Francisco's transit system.

As a thank you to their guests, we made these custom bookmarks with the map and bus design. At the bottom it reads, "Always thank you bus driver" as a nod to their meet-cute. (And its definitely a cute one!)

Kraft Invitations for an NYC Park Wedding

Congratulations to Jill and Joe on their wedding last weekend at Linden Terrace at Fort Tryon Park, here in New York City!

We’ve had the pleasure of working with these guys over the course of a year to design and letterpress print their save the date announcements, invitation suites and the day-of menus. They selected our Hudson design and personalized it with nature inspired imagery and mixing in a warm brown kraft paper.

Jill and Joe's save the dates were simple and modern, with the paper choice adding a nice warmth. The rich, black ink on brown kraft paper truly shows off the details of our letterpress printing.

The information card and welcome party card in their set both featured different natural elements. The information card on kraft paper has some beautiful illustrations of greenery, while the welcome party is topped with a vintage, flying bird. These seem to be the perfect elements for a wedding in the lush Fort Tryon Park!

In the Studio

We share a lot of photos of the stationery we're printing so for a change, we've decided to step back and show some pictures of our studio and printing presses.

We do all of our own letterpress printing here in the Brooklyn studio. Doing this ourselves allows us to really pay attention to each piece that passes through the press and be certain that it matches the design we've created. It is important to us that our stationery is perfect as it has to represent the people who will be writing on and sending it. Having control in the printing helps us ensure this.

Plus, we like making things and it’s immensely satisfying to start the day with stacks of blank paper and finish it with stacks of beautiful stationery!

Summer Sage Wedding at Blue Hill at Stone Barns

We are so excited to see one of our favorite couple's wedding featured on Carats and Cake site this week! Claire and Tom were a dream to collaborate with! Their save the date announcements featured a cow letterpress printed in a pale tint of soft blue, a nod to the wedding venue, Blue Hill at Stone Barns. They chose a soft sage colored floral design for their invitations to match the gorgeous flowers that would surround them on their wedding day. We worked closely with them for a year and it is great to see the pictures of this special couple on their wedding day!

Floral Save the Date Postcard

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.

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! 

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. 

Spring Wreath Stationery

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.

New Cards for Summer

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!

Elegant Long Island Wedding

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.
