Congratulations to Joey & Ben on their wedding on Shelter Island this weekend! We love these invitations and save the dates, with custom illustrations created by an artist for them. All the cards were printed in a dusty blue on warm white paper, perfect for a seaside wedding. The Weekend Guide card is such a fun extra piece and useful in keeping guests aware if the timeline.
A belated congrats to Leah and Michael on their wedding in Brooklyn this summer. They chose an awesome venue and wanted their invitations to reflect the city, with a silhouette of the NYC skyline. Their response cards feature a cute silhouette of a taxi cab on top. These invitations were printed in rich black ink on warm white paper.
Congrats to Kirsten and Dan on their wedding in nearby New Jersey! We love the floral addition they made to our Timeless design. The invitations look so soft and beautiful printed in slate blue on warm white paper.
We designed these invitations for a wedding at the Wolffer Estate Vineyard last year, and they have us dreaming of sipping some rosé in the summer sun. We used our Vineyard invitation template and added some extra details, like green painted leaves on the invitation, and an envelope liner featuring the same vintage map of Long Island that we used on the Save the Dates. The dusty blue and soft green inks look beautiful together on warm white paper.
We designed and printed these modern invitations for a wedding at the Brooklyn Winery this summer. Annelise and Michael chose our Hudson design, and wanted to add a a touch of bright green for the divider lines, which was perfect for a June event. We love using this design because we feel that it fits a lot of our clients - classic but modern. Congratulations to Annelise and Michael! We hope you had a fantastic wedding!
Congratulations Alicia and Jonathan! We worked with them to customize our Hudson design by adding a tinted silhouette of the Statue of Liberty to the background and a sky blue border. The result is subtle and cool - a perfect reflection of their personality.
Congratulations to Nina and Andrew for their Nantucket wedding this weekend! We really enjoyed working with them to come up with this beautifully soft design. The elegant calligraphy for the names and other lines of text was done by Megan Fahy. We then scanned this and added it to our design. The wave and seagulls were printed in a very pale tint of ink to keep the focus on the soft blue text.
Congratulations Christa and Brett! We loved working with this couple on a beautiful set that combined our Hudson design with some subtle cherry blossom imagery. Their save the date featured a tinted vintage map of New York, which looks classic with black text.
Congratulations Kelsey and Mark on their wedding this week! Their elegant invitations are classic with a custom monogram. A pale blush envelope liner softens the design and adds a beautiful secondary color, perfect for a February wedding.
Congratulations to our Britt and Tony on their wedding a couple weeks ago! We worked with them on a variety of letterpress stationery for their San Francisco wedding, including these announcements and bookmarks. They have a really sweet story about meeting on a city bus, and wanted to incorporate that into the design of their stationery. The image of the bus became a fun recurring element, as well as the map of San Francisco's transit system.
As a thank you to their guests, we made these custom bookmarks with the map and bus design. At the bottom it reads, "Always thank you bus driver" as a nod to their meet-cute. (And its definitely a cute one!)
We worked with a lovely couple last year to create letterpress invitations for their wedding at the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, New York. They were drawn to a couple of our wedding designs (Hudson and Vintage NYC), so we combined elements from both to come up with a unique set of invitations. We used a vintage image of the estate on the top of the navy and gold card. The set has a very regal feeling, fitting their beautiful venue.
We designed and printed these Save the Dates for a birthday party at the American Museum of Natural History, here in NYC. The design was inspired by vintage circus posters, complete with a banner carrying elephant. The elephant was letterpress printed in silver, and has a bit of shine that plays well with the bright red of the text. We can just imagine how fun a night at the museum would be - hopefully without any dinosaurs or elephants springing to life.
These letterpress invitations were printed for Tibi for a Spring 2016 runway show. Black and charcoal ink are modern and understated, just like their designs. It's fun to collaborate with creatives in another industry who share the same attention for detail.
Doesn't a nightcap at a rowing club sound like a fun time? The vintage illustration of crossed oars, printed in forest green give this design a classic look. We just love the simplicity and warmth of this letterpress card.
These letterpress birthday invitations were so fun to design and print. Our client, Christine, threw a surprise party for her husband's 40th, and wanted to send out fun and bright invites. We loved her idea of a big bowl of spaghetti and meatballs with a candle sticking out. It's the perfect image for an Italian style birthday dinner.
We designed this fun map, highlighting a few key places for guests of the party. The minimal design fits in perfectly with the invitation and information card. All of the cards were edge painted in bright red, to match the bowl of spaghetti.
Our pale floral wedding invitation is one of our favorite designs as it is simple in color and yet has an intricate embossed background. To print this, we use a clear ink with just a speck of pigment to bring out the depth. Each time we print this design for a couple, we marvel at the result.
Isn't this letterpress baby shower invitation the sweetest? Alyssa's family and friend's threw her a shower this summer and we love the design that they chose. The gentle giraffe looks sweetly down on the text, which is clean and easy to read. Navy blue was the perfect color, as it lends a sophistication to the invitation.
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.
We've added a new New York City invitation to our wedding collection. This set pulls elements from vintage maps, iconic landmarks and every day life in the city. This design proves that even pigeons can be sweet when letterpressed in gold ink. We think the combination of elements, in classic black and gold ink, makes a really lovely NYC themed invitation suite!
Love the design, but live in another city? We can customized these invitations for your location, too. If you're interested, email us the details and we'll find iconic images that reflect your city.
All of the designs in our Wedding Collection are meant to be customized to reflect a couple's style and the tone of their event. We love seeing how different these designs look for different couples. Here is one of our favorite versions of the Floral Wreath design. Black letterpress printing always looks incredibly elegant.
Their simple serif monogram fits perfectly inside the wreath of flowers.
This classic black and white wedding invitation really sets the tone for their elegant event. We hope their big day is a beautiful affair for everyone there!
