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.
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!
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.
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.
These custom note cards were a wonderful gift for a chic lady! We love the simplicity of the monogram printed in rich black ink.
Congratulations to Rachel and Brian on their wedding this weekend. We loved customizing our Vintage NYC design for their wedding at the Liberty Warehouse here in Brooklyn.
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.
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.
We recently updated some of our letterpress stationery designs, to give them a fresh look! These note cards come in a traditional and modern style, for personal note writing or business stationery. We love these bright yellow sunglasses for someone young at heart.
These monogram heart & arrow notecards are a sweet way to thank all your wedding guests for their love and support. A bespoke monogram paired with an image that symbolizes a couple's relationship is a great way to customize letterpress 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We've added a really elegant new design to our collection of wedding invitations. Many couples have been approaching us, asking for something that features a monogram of their initials.
We're always delighted to come up with a new layout so we came up with this design that features a monogram, as well as a simple border.
The choice of quite traditional fonts also adds to the sense of subtle formality without being stuffy!
This summer, we have been printing a range of dual-language invitations. It's a fun challenge for us to lay these out and we have the added benefit of daydreaming about events on Greek islands, Italian hillsides and French chateaus!
This invitation includes text in both English and Greek. We aimed to have both sections of copy arranged similarly so that they mirror each other and there is plenty of space left on the design so that it doesn't look too "text-y".
The bride asked the extremely talented Roanne Adams from RoAndCo to design the custom monogram and we think it is so charming. The subtle olive branches refer to the Greek heritage of the bride and the location of the wedding.
The contrast of deep navy on crisp white cardstock never fails to set our hearts aflutter. It's a classic look that allows the quality of the design and letterpress impression come to the forefront.
This set perfectly illustrates what we mean. It features a single ink color, simple border and repeated monogram and the overall effect is gorgeous.
A personalized monogram is a lovely way to bring some individuality to your invitation set. And you can then repeat the monogram on materials that we print for the ceremony and reception (such as programs, menus etc!)
This invitation suite is charming and classic and we love the recurring wreath motif.
We designed the wreath to incorporate the monogram that features the initials of the couple's first names and it looks so pretty on the different pieces.
Here's the layout of the gift tag that can be affixed to favors:
And we even used the illustration as a pale, tinted blind embossed element on the RSVP cards:
