Congratulations to Karina and Alejandro on their wedding this weekend! Their wedding invitations are unique and modern, just like their wedding venue, an industrial artist studio and gallery space in Brooklyn.
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.
These letterpress invitations were for a wedding at the Glasserie, a former glass factory, converted to a rustic-cool venue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Little illustrations, like the Brooklyn Bridge, a taxi cab and a frosty mug of beer topped off each card, a nice counter to the formal script font. Forest green and charcoal gray ink were the perfect choice for this early fall wedding.
We love this Brooklyn Bridge illustration with the heart hovering above, and its such a sweet touch to any wedding invitations in Brooklyn.
We love working with couples from New York on their wedding invitations. It's always fun to see where they'll be holding their event, since we're often familiar with the venues. These letterpress wedding invitations are for a Brooklyn couple, who wanted to keep their design simple and clean. We added the subway car as a nod to their daily commute and a vintage new York map as an envelope liner. All the pieces were printed in a dark charcoal gray for a little twist on classic black.
In honor of spring, we designed and printed a new set of garden inspired letterpress cards. We've been dying to use Reich Paper's soft gray paper and thought this would be the perfect project. We printed vintage etchings of insects in charcoal ink, with a layer of neon color underneath. The result is a set of eye-catching cards with a greeting for every occasion.
We loved the idea of mixed sets so much that we we're now selling some of our old favorites in boxed sets, as well. Our Animal Portrait and Kraft collections each contain 6 assorted cards with matching envelopes, and are tied up in a box with a pretty ribbon.
These letterpress card sets are perfect for anyone who still enjoys sitting down to pen a personal note to family and friends. These and more are available at our online shop.
This invitation suite is one of our favorite styles as it incorporates a rustic theme with an elegant design, befitting a wedding. All the pieces are printed in a charcoal gray which gives the set a formal appearance.
The pine cones on the information card accentuated the rural nature of their winter wedding. The bride and groom wanted their wedding suite to reflect their bucolic venue. The Cork Factory Hotel is in historic downtown Lancaster, PA in a building that once housed a cork and glass company.
We can just imagine relaxing cozily by a fire, in between the ceremony and the reception, with a hot toddy in hand. What a wonderful way to spend a December weekend!
It's been a while since we posted any Save the Date cards. Over the past months we have printed lots of these. Many of our couples really like the banner design. It is simple and light-hearted and perfect for a summer wedding. We especially love how this card came out:
The yellow and gray inks perfectly complement each other and the pop of yellow on the edges adds another dimension to the design.
