Congrats to a lovely couple, Nicole & John, who were married in Greece this weekend! Their invitations featured olive branches fit for a destination wedding on the Greek seaside. The cards were all printed in dark gray and gold ink, on warm white paper. For a bit of contrast, we used pewter gray envelopes with an olive branch adorning the flap. The thank you cards fit the theme, with olive branches bordering the card and their name in a beautiful script on top.
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 Zack & Corey on their recent destination wedding in Mexico! We feel that the the design provided great insight into the fun that this wedding promised. They chose to work with our Modern Love design, in charcoal and coral ink, with some vintage illustrations to top the cards. The matador on the Celebration Guide is so sweet! They also wanted to line their envelopes in a fun pattern, so we sourced this parrot patterned paper from Rifle Paper Co. They make the whole design a real standout!
Congratulations Anneke and Patrick on the wedding this weekend! We don't get enough opportunities to print jellyfish on wedding stationery! Destination wedding like this Jamaican celebration are especially fun to work on! We started with our Pictorial design and customized this with the images of coral, jellyfish, starfish and the octopus. The ink colors here are coral and navy and we've added a bright tissue envelope liner for an extra jolt of color.
We love designing wedding itineraries like this playful one for James and Shequana's destination wedding in the Bahamas. They wanted to give their guests an easy to read schedule for the wedding day events. Its a fun extra piece to include in a welcome bag, and is a great reminder of the itinerary. The palm design from the letterpress wedding invitations was added to this card for continuity.
We love seeing getting a glimpse of our clients' weddings! After collaborating with them and discussing many details of their event, it feels really satisfying to see the happiness on their faces on their wedding day. Here are some photos of our invitation design and the gorgeous details from Mackenzie and Mike's destination wedding. Their photographer, Amalie Orrange, truly captured the essence of their playful, but chic wedding. The photos were recently shared on Style Me Pretty and we feel so honored to have helped this couple on their way to the altar!

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.

The winter blues are real, so we're thinking of sunny days in Mexico to pass the time. Last year, we designed these invitations for a lovely couple having a destination wedding. They wanted to incorporate the symbol of a zia sun into the design, as well as a nod to the beach with a wave illustration. We created a custom monogram featuring the sun and their initials. We letterpress printed the suite in gold and a subtle tint, including a custom envelope liner. Overall, it had an elegant, but laid back vibe, much like a destination wedding in Mexico!
We recently had the pleasure of letterpress printing wedding invitations for Joana & Jacob, a couple getting married in Portugal. They brought the inspiration of beautiful, blue and white tile work that is traditional in Portuguese architecture. We loved the idea of hinting at that in the background of the invitation, so we printed a tile design in a pale blue, behind the bright blue text. The result is very beautiful, and one of our favorite designs from our summer wedding projects.
We love when we have the opportunity to letterpress print wedding invitations for creative couples. These wedding invitations were designed by the betrothed couple, Jennifer and James. The result was a very unique design, full of color and fun flourishes.
Jennifer and James fell in love with the South of France when they vacationed there together. From the delicious food to the warmth of the countryside, they knew that this was the perfect destination for their wedding. The event was held at an idyllic castle called Château de Lisse, no doubt the inspiration for many fairy tales. The week long event allowed their guests ample time to explore the South and the breathtaking grounds of the château.
It was a lot of fun to print wedding invitations in such vibrant and playful colors. The bright green and blue ink look were an amazing combination. The background of the invitation was a half-tone moon printed in perfect sky blue, with stars dotting the edges. The decorative frame in vivid green added just the right amount of contrast.
They designed these great matching coasters for the reception, as well. We love that they lined the border with the coordinates of the château and topped it off with a very stylish ampersand.
We are envious of anyone who received these letterpress wedding invitations! We're sure it was the trip of a lifetime.
Just a quick blog post with a close-up of a gorgeous invitation. We really like how this design is both elegant and informal. The Strangelove font used for the couples' names keeps it from looking too stuffy and the blind embossed palm tree motif adds another subtly, tactile layer to the letterpress technique!
We just finished printing this wedding set for a lovely couple who are getting married in Italy. We're jealous: all that wonderful food, gorgeous views and la dolce vita! They decided to have the set printed in our matte gold ink: we love how this hue is the perfect blend of elegant and understated.
They selected a few of illustrations from our image library to give an extra level of customization to their invitation:
We love the little heart lockets and we also really like how the simple heart silhouette looks as a blind-embossed pressed image:
Without ink, it just highlights the quality of the impression.
Congratulations Maegan and Eric!
We worked with a really lovely couple on their Save the Date Cards. So when the time came for them to print their wedding invitations, we were excited to be involved again. Richie and Vilmarie are getting married in the Dominican Republic and Richie designed these gorgeous invitations, which feature a map of the island.
We love how the design creates so many shades and hues, even though it is only printed in one color. The bride and groom actually stamped the little coral hearts onto the pieces, by hand, after they had been printed.
