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?

Cedar Lakes Estate Wedding

A belated congratulations to Carys and David for their wedding last month! They were married at Cedar Lakes Estate, an upscale summer camp, in upstate New York. The venue used to be a summer camp, so a wedding there includes the full camp experience with cabins, games by the lake, meals in a dining hall and a treehouse - what fun! Their invitations were based on our Hudson design, printed in navy and gold ink with fall themed imagery. We created a custom monogram using an apple illustration, which was printed on thank you cards and the weekend guide. One of our favorite pieces was the custom coaster, with an illustration and recipe of their signature cocktail, Winnie’s Bootlegger.

Cape Cod Farm Wedding

Congratulations to Cara & Brendan for their wedding this past weekend on Cape Cod! We used a variation on our Pictorial design, printing all the cards in navy ink. On the invitation card, we used a hand-drawn image of a barn from, that they provided. Its always a nice touch to have a custom image included in your suite. On the rsvp card, we added a space for song requests, which is a fun way to have your guests include a handwritten note on their response.

Liberty Monogram Wedding

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.

Black Wildflowers

Congratulations to Jungjoo and Jarrett for their recent wedding in upstate New York! We love that they chose a bold design, using a variation of our Wildflowers template. The black floral frame is striking and modern, with pale pink elements, like the envelope liner and belly band to soften the invitation set.

Response Cards with Event Information

These cards are an example of a way to convey the wedding weekend details to your guests and help them easily indicate which events they will attend. The info card is an information source for guests and the response card is the information source for the family handling the planning. If you have many events for your wedding weekend, it may be most helpful to you to have your guests rsvp for each event, as exemplified on this response card. It will make counting heads for each event much easier!

Formal Holiday 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.

Black Tie Winter Wedding

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!

New Design! Tropical Destination Wedding

In anticipation of summer, we were itching to design something new for our wedding collection. We were inspired by some beautiful illustrations of green palm trees and leaves. This letterpress suite is perfect for a destination wedding on a lush island (even better if you're lucky enough to live somewhere tropical!) The envelopes are a lined with giant green palm printed liners, and we added a pink flamingo belly band for a bright contrast of color. Its a fun design that also works well for a formal wedding. Take a look below to see a bit of the letterpress printing process.

Check out more of our new wedding designs on our website!

Pineapple Wedding Invitations

We love the classic look of these letterpress wedding invitations. There's nothing finer than rich, black ink on soft white paper. Throw in a pineapple and you've knocked it out of the park! The vintage pineapple illustration is fitting, since they symbolize a warmth, friendship and good hospitality - exactly what weddings are all about.

Black Tie Wedding in Blue at the Museum of Natural History

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.

Elegant Monogram in Navy Blue

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.

A Birthday to Go Down in History - Part Two

Several months ago, we designed and printed some circus inspired Save the Dates for a birthday party at the American Museum of Natural History. We also worked on the invitations for the party, albeit with a slightly different theme. The inspiration was Out of Africa, a romantic film starring Meryl Streep, set in Kenya. Illustrations of lush foliage, letterpress printed in rich black ink, framed the card. The edges were painted in silver foil, giving the whole set a luxe feel, fitting of a black tie event.
