Cape Cod Farm Wedding

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.

English Country House Wedding

Congratulations to Lorien & John for their wedding across the pond this week! This lovely couple chose to use our Pictorial design with imagery to match their wedding at a beautiful country home. The soft blue-green and gray colors of this design have us dreaming of the English countryside in the spring.

Bespoke Letterpress Stationery

Here's a whole slew of custom letterpress notecards we've printed recently. All this stationery is making us want to sit down and pen some nice notes. Each of these notecards features a couple names or initials and some illustration that complements them. The New York themed notecards are especially fun, since they feature landmarks of our fair city.

Greenpoint Wedding at The Glasserie

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.

Green Bouquet Wedding

We love the blending of modern fonts and vintage illustrations in this floral wedding invitation. Designed for a wedding in Brooklyn at the beautiful Wythe Hotel, these invites are gorgeous and cool. The oversized cards feature vintage floral bouquet, printed in a summery green. The couple's names are emphasized in that same green and a more formal font. For the envelope liner, we created a monogram, enveloped by flowers.

Warby Parker

We recently printed some letterpress greeting cards for one of our favorite companies, Warby Parker. We love their eyeglasses and sunglasses, so we were excited to collaborate with them on some note cards for their new Brooklyn location. Each set has 4 different designs, which feature really cute illustrations of New Yorkers with great eyewear by Joana Avillez. They're a really lovely set for anyone who enjoys sending and receiving snail mail.

Upstate Wedding at Buttermilk Falls

A few months ago, Joyce and Ben came to us to design and print their wedding invitations. We knew it was going to be a fun job, when their dog popped up to say hello during our meeting! Their wedding was held at a beautiful inn in upstate New York on the Hudson River called Buttermilk Falls.

They wanted a pop of bright color, so we paired a fluorescent blue with a more subdued charcoal ink. The colors contrast each other well, and break up the design in an interesting way. We also printed a custom envelope liner for them, featuring a road map of upstate New York, with their location resting just at the fold.

Joyce and Ben wanted to mix some fun illustrations of their beloved dog, Penny with a classic design, and we think the result is wonderful. They commissioned an artist to illustrate some scenes of Penny from one of their trips to Buttermilk Falls. We love the drawings of Penny, nose to nose with a llama, and hanging out with some chickens. It's fun, personal touches like these that make custom invitations worthwhile.

Pale Blue Heart Letterpress Wedding Invitations

We always enjoy letterpress printing wedding invitations designed by our clients or their friends. We're constantly trying out new techniques and printing from other designers' artwork, gives us the opportunity to try something we may not have thought of. This sweet invitation set is a perfect example of that. It was designed by Leah Kim for Hyunbin Park and Lucas Soto. The design was perfect for letterpress and we were so happy to be able to work with this nice couple to print these.

Meadow-themed wedding invitations

Lauren and Tyler approached us with a really beautiful layout that they had designed themselves. It features a freeform border consisting of all sorts of seasonal flowers and herbs. meadow-blue-floral-letterpress-wedding-invite

The simplicity of the font allows the fine illustrations to really shine through. We also adore the subtle ampersand behind the couple's names.

When it came to laying out the RSVP card, they replicated a single element of the design and used the same fonts and pale blue ink to create a unified look. Just so pretty!

Red, White and Blue wedding invitations

Admittedly, this wedding didn't take place on July 4th. But the color scheme certainly seems appropriate for this holiday weekend! We printed this set for a May wedding last year and we adore the mix of elegance and informality.

The invitation itself maintains a more traditional look with the triple border and monogram. Meanwhile, the other pieces are a little more whimsical and feature some really lovely illustrations. We especially like how the motifs on the information card correspond to the RSVP card.

Hand illustrated social stationery

Sometimes clients ask us to include an illustration that they provide on their printed materials. As long as the design is suitable for letterpress, we are happy to do this. It's always great for us to see the work of other artists and craftspeople. We printed these pretty notecards which feature a hand drawn illustration of the client's home. These look really smart in cool gray ink and they're extremely personal and bespoke.

Matte Gold Wedding Suite

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!
