Gray Laurel Wreath

Congratulations to Katie & Richard on their wedding in Villanova, Pennsylvania this past weekend! They loved our Laurel Wreath design, with an added border. The suite was printed in warm gray ink on natural white paper, giving a very sophisticated and classic feeling to the design. We love printing this floral wreath illustration, with its beautiful detail.

Cedar Lakes Estate Wedding

A belated congratulations to Carys and David for their wedding last month! They were married at Cedar Lakes Estate, an upscale summer camp, in upstate New York. The venue used to be a summer camp, so a wedding there includes the full camp experience with cabins, games by the lake, meals in a dining hall and a treehouse - what fun! Their invitations were based on our Hudson design, printed in navy and gold ink with fall themed imagery. We created a custom monogram using an apple illustration, which was printed on thank you cards and the weekend guide. One of our favorite pieces was the custom coaster, with an illustration and recipe of their signature cocktail, Winnie’s Bootlegger.

Lilac Wildflower Wedding

Congrats to Cara and Andrew on their wedding in Staten Island! They liked our Pale Florals design, but wanted to add a touch of color to accent the suite. We printed the invitations with a tinted embossed floral border and charcoal ink. The reception card and envelope liner were printed in a pretty lavender that gives the flower illustrations a bit more definition and a lot of charm. The envelope liner features a custom monogram for another personal touch.

Gramercy Park Hotel Wedding

We worked with Arielle & Michael to design invitations for their Gramercy Park Hotel wedding last year, using our Downtown design. They customized the design with fun illustrative touches like the L Train on the invitations, and a cocktail set for the Welcome Party card. The envelopes were lined with a vintage NYC map, featuring a cool monogram. And they topped it off with thank you cards, in the same style, for post-wedding note writing.

Green Laurel Wreath

Here are some pictures of a beautiful set of wedding invitations we designed last year for Hilary and Chris. They chose the Laurel Wreath design in a bright summer green with their monogram as the main imagery. Its hard to believe their wedding was last summer!

Formal Holiday Wedding

Congratulations to Liz and Thomas on their wedding this weekend! We love these classic and romantic invitations with a custom monogrammed wreath. They wanted to embrace the festive spirit of NYC during the holiday season, so the additional elements like the taxi carrying a Christmas tree are just right. The details in the schedule of events and map were fun to design and added a nice, personal touch.

Blossoms Invitations for a Catskills Wedding

This Blossoms wedding invitation set is one of our favorites this summer! The color palette is beautiful and perfectly captures the calm of a wedding in the mountains of upstate New York. We used a vintage map of the Catskills area as a liner, inside some deep green envelopes. 

Congratulations to Nell and Ryan on their wedding! They were a joy to collaborate with on their gorgeous invitations.

Winter Wedding Invitations

While going through our archives of past weddings, we came across these winter themed invitations. We are still in love with the combination of formal fonts and the vintage illustrations of pinecones and pine trees. The monogram inside the set of antlers has that perfect rustic feeling! We always like printing in charcoal gray ink, as it has a nice softened effect, especially on this natural white paper.

Spring Wreath Stationery

We're debuting these beautiful new note cards on our website this summer. The Branches stationery set features a pretty floral wreath with a custom monogram printed inside. We love the bright green ink on these cards, contrasted with the brilliant white paper. It creates such a lovely, and summery feeling. These note cards would be a wonderful gift for a new bride, celebrating her shower or even anyone with a summer birthday! For more photos and information, check them out on our website here.

Elegant Monogram in Navy Blue

Here's a little look at the process of printing one of letterpress invitation sets for a black tie wedding in Poughkeepsie, New York. Martha & Michael loved the formal look of our Elegant Monogram design and kept it classic with navy blue ink. Lucky for us, their initials looked great together in a monogram.

The champagne glasses were the perfect touch to their reception card. We imagine they will enjoy lots of toasts and cheers on their wedding day.

Rose & Gold Locket Wedding Suite

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.

Brooklyn Wedding Invitations

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.

Charming Navy Invitation Set

One of the really wonderful aspects of running a letterpress printing studio is the variety of requests we receive. One hour, we might get an email from someone asking us to incorporate a silhouette of their favorite pet into a greeting card and then next hour we will hear from someone who wants a really traditional design. We relish all of these challenges! Here's an example of a design that is both classic and extremely charming.

The invitation is further elevated with that beautiful dotted envelope liner. We love how this picks out the dots used alongside the solid line border.

A custom monogram adds to the elegance of the design.
