We send our congrats out to Elaine and Phillip for their wedding this weekend! They chose our Downtown design for their NYC wedding and we printed it in rich black ink. Their save the date cards are in the same style of design as the wedding suite for a complete look. We love printing this simply cool design for city weddings.
Congratulations Maura & Glenn, who were recently married in our fair city! We love the classic feeling invitations, with some of NYC’s finest landmarks printed on them. The invitations feature the Chrysler Building on top of the card, surrounded by a simple border. All the cards were printed in black ink on warm white paper.
A belated congrats to Leah and Michael on their wedding in Brooklyn this summer. They chose an awesome venue and wanted their invitations to reflect the city, with a silhouette of the NYC skyline. Their response cards feature a cute silhouette of a taxi cab on top. These invitations were printed in rich black ink on warm white paper.
We worked with Arielle & Michael to design invitations for their Gramercy Park Hotel wedding last year, using our Downtown design. They customized the design with fun illustrative touches like the L Train on the invitations, and a cocktail set for the Welcome Party card. The envelopes were lined with a vintage NYC map, featuring a cool monogram. And they topped it off with thank you cards, in the same style, for post-wedding note writing.
We are still thinking about these amazing invitations for a laid-back wedding at a pizzeria in Brooklyn. Ariane & Daniel had fun with their design, and wanted to highlight the venue, Roberta’s, with a cool pizza patterned envelope liner. The salmon pink color is beautiful on warm white paper, and was a fun color to mix up for our presses.
A big congratulations to Jamie & Bobby on their Bowery Hotel wedding this weekend! The Bowery Hotel is such a romantic setting for an NYC wedding, and we think the invitations set the tone. Jamie & Bobby used our Elegant Monogram design, minus the monogram, making it a classic design with a double border. The navy ink with navy envelope liners is very striking on warm white paper. And we always love printing custom thank you notes for after the wedding. These are so sweet, with a vintage illustration of a writing hand.
Congrats to Jensen and Andrew on their recent wedding! We used our Art Deco inspired Gatsby design for their invitations in navy and light gray ink on warm white paper. For a fun element, we printed vintage NYC maps for custom envelope liners. We love the little detail of the clinking champagne glasses on the bottom of the invitation, to note the wedding attire.
Congratulations to Susan and Matt on their wedding this weekend! These two were not afraid of color, which makes this a very fun design. They chose a beautiful paper from Rifle Paper Co. to use as an envelope liner, for another layer of color for their invitations.
We want to wish a big congratulations to Alexa and Adam! They were married in Williamsburg with gorgeous views of Manhattan from this weekend. They chose our Roses design, but wanted to modernize the typography a bit to fit in with their cool Brooklyn vibe. A pale blue colored envelope sets off the blue type and tinted embossed floral pattern.
Congratulations to Sarah & Adam on their wedding in NYC this past weekend! We’ve collaborated with them over the past few months to create their a suite of wedding cards based on our Cities design. We began with a Save the Date card, featuring a tinted image of a vintage NYC map in the background, and used this map on envelope liners for the invitations and thank you notes as well. All of their pieces (including table numbers, escort cards, programs and menus!) were printed in Navy ink and were inspired by New York’s iconic landmarks.
Congrats to Stephanie & Stefan for their wedding in Brooklyn this week! They were married at Liberty Warehouse, which has views of the iconic Statue of Liberty, which inspired their invitation design. They chose our Vintage NYC template and we created a monogram using the Statue of Liberty, to be used on the invite and thank you notes. A vintage map of Brooklyn lined the envelope for a deluxe look.
Congrats to Courtney and Nicholas for their wedding this weekend! They our Vintage NYC design for their lovely city wedding, featuring some city icons and a vintage map for the envelope liner. Black and gold ink were the perfect combination for a black tie wedding.
The exhibition “Made In New York: The Business Of Folk Art,” curated by Elizabeth V. Warren, currently on view at the American Folk Art Museum in New York dives into the rich history of folk art in New York City. With works ranging from portraiture to shop signs, this exhibition highlights the fact that folk art was not just happening in small rural areas, but that there was a flourishing community of painters, printers, potters, and other artisans working in the five boroughs of New York. Many of these artists were self-taught or learn their trade through traditional apprenticeships or family businesses. The exhibition includes works created from 1760 to 1915 including a beautiful Optician’s trade sign from the E.G. Washburne & Co., a painting of the Flushing, a paddle wheeler, by James Bard, and a variety of embroidery samplers, among many other amazing objects. Laura Beach in her review of the exhibition for Antiques and the Arts Weekly states, “its true beauty lies in its meticulous reconstruction of a place and its people.” The exhibitions runs through July 28, 2019.

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.
We printed these beautiful invitations for a New York City wedding last year. The cards were all a classic design, printed in rich, black ink, and then we added a surprise element in the form of a bold envelope liner. The NYC skyline printed on the liner was the perfect imagery for this rooftop wedding!
Congratulations to Liz and Thomas on their wedding this weekend! We love these classic and romantic invitations with a custom monogrammed wreath. They wanted to embrace the festive spirit of NYC during the holiday season, so the additional elements like the taxi carrying a Christmas tree are just right. The details in the schedule of events and map were fun to design and added a nice, personal touch.
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.
We’re excited to announce our collaboration this fall with the Hoxton Hotel in Williamsburg. To celebrate the new location, the Hoxton invited a selection of Brooklyn artists to create a limited edition product inspired by and made in the neighborhood. The collection, “Best of Brooklyn” celebrates the creative spirit and makers in our borough.
We love collaborations as they’re an opportunity to push ourselves creatively. We decided to print sets of note cards highlighting some our favorite spots in the neighborhood for drinks, music, sightseeing. Traditional hotel stationery was used by guests while staying in hotel rooms. We’ve designed our set to match the colors of the hotel’s interior but function like a scavenger hunt, sending guests outside. Each card features an image cross-streets in the surrounding area, encouraging people to walk around to discover each site. We hope people will find their own favorite Williamsburg spots in the process!
We’re really honored to be included in this collection and definitely recommend visiting the hotel for a drink or dinner and to pick up a couple special, locally-made products, especially with the holidays on the horizon! You can also visit the Hoxton’s site to shop the collection and learn more about the other makers.
Our Downtown design has been a popular one for us this year! We love the more casual style, especially for a wedding in NYC. Valerie and Sean found the design to be most fitting for their wedding their wedding at the Norwood in Chelsea.
Congrats to Ashley and Lindsey on their recent wedding! We really enjoyed working on their invitations, which were a combination of our Vintage NYC and Downtown designs. They were inspired by their venue, Houston Hall, and wanted an old New York feeling. The wine red and black ink, with a black envelope makes a really striking set. We also designed a Save the Date coaster, in the same style as the invitations to make a complete set.
