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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Congratulations to Lisa and William who were just married this weekend! We loved working on their Gatsby inspired invitations, and all the fun details that were included. The California themed favor tags are so sweet!
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!
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.

Here's a sneak peek of a wedding suite we worked on this winter. We're in love with the bright yellow painted edges on the invitation cards! It's such an unique wedding color, that catches your eye right away. Stay tuned for more shots of this Park City letterpress suite...
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.
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.
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.
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.
We love these invitations that we printed for another designer for a wedding in Florida. They have just the right amount of formality and fun, with a unique color combination. The sea glass blue paper with gold ink is such an unexpected choice, but feels perfectly Miami.
We just love Virginia and Greg's San Francisco themed wedding invitations. We started with their letterpress printed Save the Dates in rich black and bright red ink. They wanted to pay homage to an iconic landmark, the Golden Gate Bridge, on top of the card. The combination of colors on warm white paper is striking. We even had a little fun with a cute streetcar on the envelopes!
They loved the design of the Save the Date, so we followed suit for the invitations. The Golden Gate Bridge topped this card in bright red, as well, with the elegant and simple text in black. An envelope liner, printed in silver, was just the right touch for the design. We found a vintage map of San Francisco that looked just right next to the invitation.
We love how Virginia and Greg's invitations turned out and we can't wait to do another city themed letterpress set!
