Floral Hamptons Wedding

Congratulations to Brooke and Paulo on their Hamptons wedding this past weekend! We loved working on their design so much, that it inspired us to create a new template based on it. The tinted floral pattern on the invitation is subtle and allows the text to read clearly. The Information card and Welcome Cocktails card both featured Hamptons inspired illustrations in complementary colors. It is a beautiful and unique invitation suite.

Blossoms Day Of Stationery

We printed these beautiful pieces for a wedding reception in the Catskills. They match our Blossoms design with the sweet floral wreaths on the place cards and table numbers. Robyn Wylde, a calligrapher that we often work with did a wonderful job lettering the names and numbers onto these pieces. We love the continuity of these cards that match the invitations at a reception.

Blossoms Invitations for a Catskills Wedding

This Blossoms wedding invitation set is one of our favorites this summer! The color palette is beautiful and perfectly captures the calm of a wedding in the mountains of upstate New York. We used a vintage map of the Catskills area as a liner, inside some deep green envelopes. 

Congratulations to Nell and Ryan on their wedding! They were a joy to collaborate with on their gorgeous invitations.

Floral Mackinac Island Wedding

We used our Roses design for these gorgeous invitations for a wedding at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. The all script design in Bickham looks romantic with the subtle rose floral design. One of our favorite cards to design are schedule cards because they always utilize fun icons for the planned events. They're a great addition to a wedding welcome bag. Our congratulations go out to Beth and Ray!

Tinted Embossing

We're often asked about printing "blind", which means printing without any ink, so you just see the impression of an image or text. While the subtlety of a blind emboss is nice, we prefer to print a tinted emboss. These photos illustrate the soft quality of an illustration printed with transparent ink, sized with  a touch of gray ink. This small amount of ink helps to create a bit of a shadow on the paper, so that the image reads a little better, but doesn't interfere with the text.

Blue Rose Wedding Invitations

Congratulations to Toni & Yuri, who were just married this October! We designed and printed the beautiful invitations for their fall wedding at The Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm. They liked a couple of our wedding designs so much that we ended up combining the elements. We used the pale rose illustrations, and paired them with the layout of our Downtown design. The deep blue ink, paired with the modern font choice made the design feel brand new.

Summer Sage Wedding at Blue Hill at Stone Barns

We are so excited to see one of our favorite couple's wedding featured on Carats and Cake site this week! Claire and Tom were a dream to collaborate with! Their save the date announcements featured a cow letterpress printed in a pale tint of soft blue, a nod to the wedding venue, Blue Hill at Stone Barns. They chose a soft sage colored floral design for their invitations to match the gorgeous flowers that would surround them on their wedding day. We worked closely with them for a year and it is great to see the pictures of this special couple on their wedding day!

Floral Save the Date Postcard

Here's a peek into the process of printing some floral save the dates for a fall wedding. These save the dates were printed as postcards, with a beautiful large floral image on the front and the necessary information on the back. We printed the text in a wine red as, and a warm tint of gray for the large flower. It feels like the perfect color comination for an end of summer wedding at a vineyard.

Spring Wreath Stationery

We're debuting these beautiful new note cards on our website this summer. The Branches stationery set features a pretty floral wreath with a custom monogram printed inside. We love the bright green ink on these cards, contrasted with the brilliant white paper. It creates such a lovely, and summery feeling. These note cards would be a wonderful gift for a new bride, celebrating her shower or even anyone with a summer birthday! For more photos and information, check them out on our website here.

Wildflowers - New Wedding Design!

We've added a few new designs to our wedding collection this year, and we're so excited about them! Wildflowers is a letterpress invitation set inspired by a lush flower garden, full of all sorts of floral beauties. The invitation card has a gorgeous floral border that we printed in black ink, so you can really see all of the details. The text is printed in a pale pink for a nice contrast and to soften the look.

We added a really pretty rose to the envelope liner, and printed it in a tint of pink on some pale pink paper. Its such a nice surprise when you open the envelope! Another detail is the belly band, adorned with daisies and the wedding website information. These pieces really complete the set for a luxe invitation experience.

Pale Green Spring Wedding

We designed and printed these pale green wedding invitations for a sweet couple getting married at Blue Hill at Stone Barns this Spring. The invitation set is based on our Pale Floral design, but with a minty green twist. Each card features a different floral arrangement in green with charcoal gray text which looks lovely on a soft white paper. These letterpress invitations feel like a breath of fresh, spring air and are helping us get through the winter blues.

Pale Floral and Gold Wedding

Here are some great detail shots of a wedding suite we designed for an upcoming wedding here in New York City. The bride and groom loved our Pale Floral set and Vintage NYC set, so we merged the two for a bespoke letterpress suite. The rose illustration looks wonderful and soft when printed in just a tint of gray ink. The text is all printed in matte gold ink and we think the combination is both classic and modern.

Valentine Bouquets

Valentine's Day is almost upon us once again! This year, we gathered a few of our favorite floral greeting cards and are selling them as a set. You'll receive 8 cards (2 of each design) as well as blank envelopes. Its a unique take on that Valentine's Day floral bouquet - and one that is great gift for your letter writing sweetheart.

French Countryside Wedding

Last year, we worked with a wonderful couple who was planning a romantic wedding in the French countryside. What a dream! Ven and Adrian came to us with some lovely floral illustrations, so we designed the text around them and letterpress printed Save the Date cards and invitations. Eventually they hand painted elements of the floral drawings, so each card was truly unique. The couple's wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty and we are swooning over the beautiful details and scenery. You can read more and check out a gallery of their gorgeous wedding here.
