These invitations for a wedding of two University of Virginia grads are timeless! The charcoal ink on natural white paper creates a beautifully soft effect. And the illustrations are a great addition to the simple design.
One of our favorite things to print are vintage maps, and this Save the Date for a Long Island wedding is no exception! We printed a lovely soft blue in the background with navy ink on top. The little heart is a cute detail to mark the spot of the event.
Congratulations to Caroline and Ryan on their March wedding! Although most of the couples we work with select one of the designs in our collection, each invitation suite we print looks unique. This is a twist on our Timeless design. They opted for a different script, Miss leGates, and paired the black ink with a jewel-toned red envelope liner.
How cute are these custom notecards? Its never too early to get your children started with hadn't written thank you notes. We love the bright pink ink paired with adorable imagery of a kitten and girl with a rabbit.
These custom note cards were a wonderful gift for a chic lady! We love the simplicity of the monogram printed in rich black ink.
Each year we find that there are certain ink colors we print over and over. Lately we've been printing a lot of sage ink. We particularly love the way this looks on our Scrolling Frames design. It works really well for this elegant meets rustic wedding!
Congratulations to Karina and Alejandro on their wedding this weekend! Their wedding invitations are unique and modern, just like their wedding venue, an industrial artist studio and gallery space in Brooklyn.
Congratulations to Amanda and Asher on their wedding this week! We've been collaborating with them over the last 9 months to print save the date announcements, invitations and programs. It's been really fun customizing our Downtown design for their wedding (we especially love the carrier pigeon) and we wish them all the best!
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.
If you're looking for a subtle image to accent your custom stationery, we recommend printing in a blind emboss like these images illustrate. Generally, we use a touch of pigment in a clear ink to help give the image a bit of shadow on the paper. The result is a beautiful bit of texture that allows your text to stand out, while giving the design a bit more depth. We don't recommend doing a blind or tinted emboss for text, as it is not reliably legible.
Congratulations to Rachel and Brian on their wedding this weekend. We loved customizing our Vintage NYC design for their wedding at the Liberty Warehouse here in Brooklyn.
Congratulations Kelsey and Mark on their wedding this week! Their elegant invitations are classic with a custom monogram. A pale blush envelope liner softens the design and adds a beautiful secondary color, perfect for a February wedding.
We recently collaborated with the Whitney Museum of Art and tattoo artist, Amanda Wachob to letterpress print these sweetheart prints. Based on Amanda's February residence in the Whitney Shop, this letterpress print depicts every piece of the love poem she tattooed on thirty individuals.
Inspired by the artists Njideka Akunyili Crosby (b. 1983) and Byron Kim (b. 1961), whose work was included in Human Interest: Portraits from the Whitney’s Collection, Wachob conceived of this poem using designs found in the archives of the New England Confectionery Company and text decontextualized from historic expressions used on their iconic Sweetheart candies.
This month, Amanda will be sharing a tattooed love poem with thirty individuals. For more information about the event, visit the Whitney website here:

Congratulations to Lisa and William who were just married this weekend! We loved working on their Gatsby inspired invitations, and all the fun details that were included. The California themed favor tags are so sweet!
We love designing wedding itineraries like this playful one for James and Shequana's destination wedding in the Bahamas. They wanted to give their guests an easy to read schedule for the wedding day events. Its a fun extra piece to include in a welcome bag, and is a great reminder of the itinerary. The palm design from the letterpress wedding invitations was added to this card for continuity.
How cute are these tiny newborn footprints? We love designing baby announcements like these. When your baby's footprints are stamped, they can be scanned and used in our letterpress designs for a beautiful keepsake and announcement. There is really nothing sweeter!
We love seeing getting a glimpse of our clients' weddings! After collaborating with them and discussing many details of their event, it feels really satisfying to see the happiness on their faces on their wedding day. Here are some photos of our invitation design and the gorgeous details from Mackenzie and Mike's destination wedding. Their photographer, Amalie Orrange, truly captured the essence of their playful, but chic wedding. The photos were recently shared on Style Me Pretty and we feel so honored to have helped this couple on their way to the altar!

January can be cold and bleak outside, but this month in the studio we're thinking of spring and summer as we're in the thick of the "Save the Date" printing season.
These cards can be lighthearted and more casual than the formal invitation, printing in brighter colors or creative formats (like bookmarks or coasters) or they can match the design closely so the guests have a sense of the celebration to come.
Regardless of the design, the text for these is usually very minimal. It typically includes the names of the couple, the date, the city of the wedding and often a website address for guests to refer to for details on travel, accommodations, wedding registries etc... For more samples of Save the Date wording, please visit our website where we've added sample text for all the cards in a suite.
Congratulations to Katy and William on their wedding today! We have loved working with this family over the course of a year to design and letterpress print their wedding stationery. This is a perfect example of a traditional invitation design with a bit of humor. The invitation card is very classic in design but the addition of the sweet fox on the save the date card and website card adds a bit of levity to the suite.
We wish them all the best on this happy day!
