Congratulations to Hilary and Jonathon on their wedding this weekend! Their invitations were inspired by ornamental building accents with that beautiful green corrosion of copper called verdigris.
Congratulations to Shannon & Sean who were married at the Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack, NY this weekend! We started working with this family nearly a year ago to design Save the Date announcements for their wedding. The cards featured a vintage map of Long Island with a heart marking the celebration location. The invitations focused on the vineyard theme and we brought back the map as an envelope liner to tie in the save the date card design.
We especially love the illustrated Wedding Weekend card with the bonfire image. This is always a great way to outline the activities planned for wedding guests!
We love when a couple decides to punch things up a notch with brightly colored edgepainting. The peach colored edges look amazing with this simple and modern wedding invitation. The combination of persimmon and gray ink with peach is striking, yet soft.
Andrea and Julio chose a beautiful, wildflower patterned from Rifle Paper Co. to line their envelopes. With such a simple wedding invitation, it's nice to add fun elements like this floral liner, without being overwhelming. We love designing clean, uncomplicated wedding suites, as it allows the letterpress printing to really shine.
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.
Our friends over at Martha Stewart Weddings recently asked if we could send pictures of our note card printing process for their blog The Brides Guide. It was fun to photograph the process and we thought we'd post the pictures here so visitors can see how we produce our stationery.
