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.
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 designed and printed these modern invitations for a wedding at the Brooklyn Winery this summer. Annelise and Michael chose our Hudson design, and wanted to add a a touch of bright green for the divider lines, which was perfect for a June event. We love using this design because we feel that it fits a lot of our clients - classic but modern. Congratulations to Annelise and Michael! We hope you had a fantastic wedding!
Congratulations Alicia and Jonathan! We worked with them to customize our Hudson design by adding a tinted silhouette of the Statue of Liberty to the background and a sky blue border. The result is subtle and cool - a perfect reflection of their personality.
Our congratulations go out to Nicole and Eric for their wedding this weekend! Their invitations are just gorgeous, with subtle hints of blush pink. We worked with them to customize our Hudson design, adding a tinted city skyline silhouette to the invitation and rsvp card.
All of the suites in our collection are designed to be customized to complement each couple's wedding style. Our Hudson suite has a minimal, sophisticated style that is particularly nice for a wedding in the city. Here are examples of how two couples personalized this design for their weddings this summer.
Congratulations Christa and Brett! We loved working with this couple on a beautiful set that combined our Hudson design with some subtle cherry blossom imagery. Their save the date featured a tinted vintage map of New York, which looks classic with black text.
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 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!
Our letterpress Hudson template has gotten a lot of love this summer! We recently used it for Bryn and Matthew's black tie wedding in Portland. They love all things Portland, even the carpet at the PDX airport, so we made a custom logo based on that carpet design. It adds a cool, personal touch to their patterned envelope liner. The letterpress suite was printed in gold and black ink, with gold foil painted edges to set the invitation card apart.
We added their wedding logo to the label of the champagne bottle illustration on their Rehearsal Dinner and Welcome Drinks cards.
Kate & Michael were great to work with on their modern black tie wedding invitations. Their wedding reception was held at the Museum of Natural History in NYC, so they wanted to add a touch of fun that related to the venue, hence the dinosaur and elephant. Our Hudson template was a great design to start with, as it is a mix of classic and modern. We updated it with some bright colors in green and blue ink, with green edge painting on the invitation card.
The letterpress envelope liner for this set is so unique! Kate & Michael wanted to reference the planetarium at the museum, so we printed a vintage illustration of mapped out constellations. It's such a fun surprise when guests open these invitations.
Fairly often, we have an engaged couple take a look at our work and fall in love with two wedding suites. In this case, Jenny & Michael picked our Hudson and Vintage NYC designs, and we found a way to merge the two. They loved the modern type choices of one, and the New York city details of another. In the end, the design looked perfect for their NYC wedding - classy, but fun!
We always love mixing the formal and the fun in our designs, as is the case with these letterpress wedding invitations. The type is classic and clean, printed in a rich black - beautiful on its own, but throw in a little fluorescent green and the whole design changes. A lovely, vintage floral illustration with an acid green accent tops the card. Can't decide on a formal or modern invitation? This design is the best of both worlds!
