Congrats to Meg & Michael on their wedding this weekend in Nantucket! For their formal affair, they chose a classic design in navy ink, with elements perfect for a Cape Cod wedding - waves and a vintage map of the island. We printed a full suite for them, including Save the Date cards, a weekend itinerary, Rehearsal Dinner invites and a menu for the day of.
Congratulations to Sarah & Adam on their wedding in NYC this past weekend! We’ve collaborated with them over the past few months to create their a suite of wedding cards based on our Cities design. We began with a Save the Date card, featuring a tinted image of a vintage NYC map in the background, and used this map on envelope liners for the invitations and thank you notes as well. All of their pieces (including table numbers, escort cards, programs and menus!) were printed in Navy ink and were inspired by New York’s iconic landmarks.
Sometimes the "Day-of" stationery gets lost in the shuffle with wedding planning but a full suite of menus, programs and welcome cards is a great way to carry the style of the invitations through to the actual wedding day celebration.
Congratulations to Carla and Joseph for their recent wedding! Their nuptials were a couple of weeks ago in sunny Florida. The emerald green palm tree is stunning (and fitting) above the formal black script. A family member drew a beautiful and fun illustrated map as part of the information card, showing all the important places for the weekend and welcoming their guests to Tampa. We lined the envelopes in a beautiful emerald green, to match the palm tree. Its a gorgeous set of letterpress invitations that we truly enjoyed creating.
We recently designed a letterpress wedding suite for a couple getting married in Southern California. They had a beautiful color theme of dusty rose with gold accents, and loved the vintage heart locket illustration in our collection. A custom script monogram sets off their simply classic wedding invitations.
One thing that everyone looks forward to at a wedding is the delicious dinner that's being prepared for them. As stationers, we really appreciate all the extra handmade touches on the day of the wedding, so we love when we get to design and print dinner menus. Sometimes, the best part of the process is drooling over all the courses that will be served!
We often print table numbers and escort cards, as well. It's a fun way to pull an design element from your invitations or an illustration that reflects your venue.
What better place to get married in New York City, than in beautiful Central Park? We love that Christina and Jeremy chose this iconic New York landmark for their big day. They had a semi-formal affair, so they picked our Hanging Lanterns design for their letterpress invitations and reception stationery. Although the design is highlighted by an ornamental border and a flourished script font, they kept it simple by printing in one color: sea blue ink, which looks striking on bright white paper.
Along with their invitations, we designed and printed menus and programs for their reception. We also did a nice card with a thank you note and some details about the events of the day.
The bride had the idea to print a little "Advice for the Newlyweds" card to hand out at the reception. We thought that was a sweet touch, and a fun thing to do while resting your feet after dancing. Adding unique things to your wedding suite makes your event more memorable for all.
Once a couple have received their printed invitations, it's often time to start thinking about reception stationery. It's really nice for us to continue working with clients on their wedding programs, escort cards, menus and other pieces. We can draw out themes from the invitation to use across these items.
Our Under the Sea design with its vivid octopus motif works really well on these menus, table cards and escort cards:
We like how the wave illustration adds a slightly different look to the set.
At the other end of the spectrum, our subtle Pale Florals set allows for some really pretty additional pieces that feature blind embossing on the menu and escort card envelope:
Thinking about your reception stationery alongside your invitations is a great way to create a unified look across your whole wedding: from the anticipation of the event to the big day itself!
