Pleasantdale Chateau Wedding

Our best wishes go out to Alexandra and Gabriel on their wedding day! We created a beautiful set of invitations based on our Roses design. We never get tired of seeing those gorgeous roses in print, especially when they are in a subtle tint, giving the design a bit of texture. This set was printed in charcoal ink on warm white paper. How cute is that stack of pancakes with syrup on the event card?

Basilica Hudson Wedding

Congratulations to Emily & Mike for their wedding this weekend! Basilica Hudson is such a cool venue, and we love designing invitations for weddings there. We used our Downtown design, and customized it, with the addition of an image of the Basilica Hudson building in a tinted embossed ink. The save the date card was printed with a brick wall pattern, to play on the structure of the building. Holding the cards together was a custom website tag, printed with the same brick pattern. The whole design was enveloped in a lined gray envelope featuring a vintage map of the Hudson Valley and upstate New York.

Hamptons Farm Wedding

We want to wish congratulations to Brooke & Warren for their wedding in the Hamptons this weekend! We are in love with these invitations! The tinted embossed chamomile bunch on the invite is soft and delicate, in contrast to the black and forest green ink. It feels perfect for a wedding reception at Fairview Farm.

Lilac Wildflower Wedding

Congrats to Cara and Andrew on their wedding in Staten Island! They liked our Pale Florals design, but wanted to add a touch of color to accent the suite. We printed the invitations with a tinted embossed floral border and charcoal ink. The reception card and envelope liner were printed in a pretty lavender that gives the flower illustrations a bit more definition and a lot of charm. The envelope liner features a custom monogram for another personal touch.

Northern California Rose Wedding

Congratulations to Adrienne and Casey for their wedding this weekend! We love seeing our Roses design in print, with its subtle detailed flower illustrations. While the invitation followed our traditional design, we created a more playful design for the Welcome Dinner card. The combination of rich black ink and tinted embossing is beautiful, as always.

Gray & Blush Roses

Congratulations to Kristiana & Marlon for their romantic wedding in the Rose Garden at Lyndhurst Mansion. What could be more perfect than our Roses design for this outdoor wedding? Dark charcoal ink and a tinted embossing of flowers look beautiful together on warm white invitations. The Rehearsal Dinner and website cards have roses printed in a blush pink tint, that blends well behind the charcoal ink.

Greek Destination Wedding

Congrats to a lovely couple, Nicole & John, who were married in Greece this weekend! Their invitations featured olive branches fit for a destination wedding on the Greek seaside. The cards were all printed in dark gray and gold ink, on warm white paper. For a bit of contrast, we used pewter gray envelopes with an olive branch adorning the flap. The thank you cards fit the theme, with olive branches bordering the card and their name in a beautiful script on top.

Romantic Roses in the Catskills Wedding

Another wedding in the works during our month of florals! Congratulations to Mary and Ryan for their wedding in the Catskills today. They chose our Roses design, but customized it with a unique placement of the floral illustration. The rose is centered on their invitation card, but printed in a tint of gray for a subtle background effect.

Getting Maui'd!

Congratulations to Brittany & Brad for their wedding in Maui this weekend! We would have loved to jet off to a tropical destination after this rainy May. We love how fun and bright these cards are, with Hawaiian accents of flowers, palms, pineapples, and an adorable hula dancer.

Ferns and Fronds Wedding

Congratulations to Laura and Daniel on their wedding this beautiful, spring weekend! So often we use beautiful floral illustrations on wedding invitations, but this couple wanted something a little different. These ferns and fronds, printed in a mix of black ink and a blind emboss, are a nice alternative for an early Spring wedding.

Brooklyn Bridge Invitations

A big congratulations to a Melissa and Kevin, who were recently married in Brooklyn! Their invitations are classic, with a subtle nod to Brooklyn. We printed their invitations in a combination of dusty blue, charcoal and a pale tint for the image of the Brooklyn Bridge. The overall effect is romantic and formal, perfectly fitting their winter wedding.

Floral Hamptons Wedding

Congratulations to Brooke and Paulo on their Hamptons wedding this past weekend! We loved working on their design so much, that it inspired us to create a new template based on it. The tinted floral pattern on the invitation is subtle and allows the text to read clearly. The Information card and Welcome Cocktails card both featured Hamptons inspired illustrations in complementary colors. It is a beautiful and unique invitation suite.

Floral Mackinac Island Wedding

We used our Roses design for these gorgeous invitations for a wedding at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. The all script design in Bickham looks romantic with the subtle rose floral design. One of our favorite cards to design are schedule cards because they always utilize fun icons for the planned events. They're a great addition to a wedding welcome bag. Our congratulations go out to Beth and Ray!

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.

Tinted Embossing

We're often asked about printing "blind", which means printing without any ink, so you just see the impression of an image or text. While the subtlety of a blind emboss is nice, we prefer to print a tinted emboss. These photos illustrate the soft quality of an illustration printed with transparent ink, sized with  a touch of gray ink. This small amount of ink helps to create a bit of a shadow on the paper, so that the image reads a little better, but doesn't interfere with the text.
