Peacock Save the Date

Happy first wedding anniversary to Amanda & Jayme! We printed these gorgeous peacock themed Save the Dates and wedding invitations last year, and smiled when we found them in our archive. These beautiful birds were printed in navy blue and mustard yellow, giving them a vibrant and sophisticated look, which felt perfect for their venue, Fine and Rare in NYC.

Nautical Portsmouth Wedding

Happy first wedding anniversary to Andrea & James! We can’t believe it has already been a year since printing these beautiful blue save the dates and invitations. They were married at a country club on the coast in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The vintage map of the NH coastline looks gorgeous printed in a tint of slate blue ink on the save the dates. Their invitation set took a more formal tone, with all navy printing and a double border. We kept with the nautical theme by creating a “monogram” using two maritime flags, that was used on the invitations and thank you notes.

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.

Chatham, Cape Cod Wedding

Congratulations to Amy & Jimmy on their Cape Cod wedding! The Cape has a special place in our hearts, so we always love designing invitations for weddings here. Allison & Jimmy chose our Hudson design, which we printed in a slate and navy blue combination. They requested an event card, to illustrate their weekend of events, complete with a Karaoke After-Party! Each event was detailed with a vintage illustration.

We also printed their Save the Date cards prior to the invitations. We printed a tinted embossed map of Cape Cod in the background, with navy ink on top. We never tire of printing these map cards!

Bowery Hotel Wedding

A big congratulations to Jamie & Bobby on their Bowery Hotel wedding this weekend! The Bowery Hotel is such a romantic setting for an NYC wedding, and we think the invitations set the tone. Jamie & Bobby used our Elegant Monogram design, minus the monogram, making it a classic design with a double border. The navy ink with navy envelope liners is very striking on warm white paper. And we always love printing custom thank you notes for after the wedding. These are so sweet, with a vintage illustration of a writing hand.

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.

Cape Cod Farm Wedding

Congratulations to Cara & Brendan for their wedding this past weekend on Cape Cod! We used a variation on our Pictorial design, printing all the cards in navy ink. On the invitation card, we used a hand-drawn image of a barn from, that they provided. Its always a nice touch to have a custom image included in your suite. On the rsvp card, we added a space for song requests, which is a fun way to have your guests include a handwritten note on their response.

Vintage NYC Map Wedding

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.

A New York and Italian Affair

Its not often that we get to work with a couple having two weddings. Elettra and Kenneth were lucky enough to have nuptial events in New York City and at a family home in northern Italy. They highlighted each invitation with a nod to an essential landmark - the Chrysler Building for the NYC event, and a mountain range for the Italian. We created a custom map for each event as well, which was a fun project to tackle.

Long Island Save the Date

One of our favorite things to print are vintage maps, and this Save the Date for a Long Island wedding is no exception! We printed a lovely soft blue in the background with navy ink on top. The little heart is a cute detail to mark the spot of the event.

Classic Long Island Wedding

Congratulations to Jen and John, who were married this past weekend! We really enjoyed working with them on their simply classic wedding invitations. They loved the idea of a coaster save the date, and so did we! It's such an unexpected format that guests love to receive in the mail. We used a vintage map of Long Island as the front in gold, with the text on the back in navy ink. Their invites reflected that same classic feeling on warm white paper.

Letterpress Printing in Shades of Blue Ink

Nothing compares to New England in the summertime! Salty air, swimming in the ocean, boats, etc... It’s my favorite place to be this season and I love when we use this inspiration to design stationery for couples getting married along the coast.

 We’re sticking with the seaside stationery theme this month and wanted to share some of our favorite nautical save the date announcements from years past.

Cape Cod Wedding Set

We are in love with these script wedding invitations for a Cape Cod wedding! Eileen and Mustafa wanted a design that was both elegant and touched on tradition, while using a slightly more modern script font. We added touches of nautical flair, in the form of an anchor and a vintage map of Cape Cod. The whole set was letterpress printed in navy ink on bright white paper, for a beautiful contrast. 

Tarrytown, New York Wedding

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.

Double Happiness Wedding

We printed these classic letterpress wedding invitations for a wedding here in New York City this fall. Simple can be beautiful, and that's true in this case. The invitation suite was printed in navy blue ink on a warm white paper. The couple wanted to incorporate a traditional Chinese ornament, so we centered the the design for Double Happiness on top of their rehearsal dinner and information cards. It's such a meaningful nod to the traditions of the groom's family.
