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.
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.
Here's a little look at the process of printing one of letterpress invitation sets for a black tie wedding in Poughkeepsie, New York. Martha & Michael loved the formal look of our Elegant Monogram design and kept it classic with navy blue ink. Lucky for us, their initials looked great together in a monogram.
The champagne glasses were the perfect touch to their reception card. We imagine they will enjoy lots of toasts and cheers on their wedding day.
One of the really wonderful aspects of running a letterpress printing studio is the variety of requests we receive. One hour, we might get an email from someone asking us to incorporate a silhouette of their favorite pet into a greeting card and then next hour we will hear from someone who wants a really traditional design. We relish all of these challenges! Here's an example of a design that is both classic and extremely charming.
The invitation is further elevated with that beautiful dotted envelope liner. We love how this picks out the dots used alongside the solid line border.
A custom monogram adds to the elegance of the design.
We've added a really elegant new design to our collection of wedding invitations. Many couples have been approaching us, asking for something that features a monogram of their initials.
We're always delighted to come up with a new layout so we came up with this design that features a monogram, as well as a simple border.
The choice of quite traditional fonts also adds to the sense of subtle formality without being stuffy!
The contrast of deep navy on crisp white cardstock never fails to set our hearts aflutter. It's a classic look that allows the quality of the design and letterpress impression come to the forefront.
This set perfectly illustrates what we mean. It features a single ink color, simple border and repeated monogram and the overall effect is gorgeous.
A personalized monogram is a lovely way to bring some individuality to your invitation set. And you can then repeat the monogram on materials that we print for the ceremony and reception (such as programs, menus etc!)
