Letterpress Bridal Shower Invitations

The term bridal shower may have come from a party thrown during the Victorian age, where a hostess filled a parasol with gifts, and opened it over the bride's head "showering" her with presents. If true, we can only hope that those gifts were small and lightweight!

Now we like to use the opportunity to shower the couple with love, advice for married life, and gifts to start their new home together. We love when friends or family come to us to design a unique letterpress invitation. Its such a thoughtful thing to do and sets a nice tone for the event.

This bridal shower brunch was thrown by the sister of the bride in her home. She loved this image of a stately home, and wanted to keep things simple with rich, black ink. We added a bit of color with a soft, sage green as an accent on the house and the bride's name.

Wine tasting at a bridal shower sounds like such a treat! This invitation marries bright colors with a classic, somewhat formal design. The fluorescent pink ink looks so pretty when paired with silver.

We used our Forest Grove wedding invitation design as the basis for this couples shower invite, printing it in silver and bright coral ink. They held their event at a beautiful, outdoor club, so the trees were the perfect motif. It was fun to design a shower invitation for both the bride and groom to be, and we thought the additional card honoring all the hosts was very sweet.

Eye Love You!

We're debuting a couple new greeting cards this year, in celebration of Valentine's Day! We love this playful card with a striking blue and gray eye. The message is simple and sweet. eye_love_valentine_card_sesame_letterpress

Nothing says I love you like a sweet, hand-written note and a really good box of chocolates. We've designed these red and gray cards with that thought in mind. The inspiration for this card, the Whitman's Sampler box, has been a Valentine's Day staple since 1912.
