We love printing in bright colors, like we did for Slaine and Ben’s wedding invitations! The fluorescent red ink stands out so well against bright white paper, and with charcoal ink for the text. They even opted for a fluorescent painted edge on the card to make their invitations that much more memorable. What a fun wedding invite to receive!
We designed this sweet bridal shower invitation for a bride on the sunny West Coast. We love printing in bright and happy colors, especially neon pink. A bright pink invitation like this sets the mood for a really fun shower. And doesn't that calla lily look feminine and beautiful?
We always love mixing the formal and the fun in our designs, as is the case with these letterpress wedding invitations. The type is classic and clean, printed in a rich black - beautiful on its own, but throw in a little fluorescent green and the whole design changes. A lovely, vintage floral illustration with an acid green accent tops the card. Can't decide on a formal or modern invitation? This design is the best of both worlds!
We designed these letterpress wedding invitations for a photoshoot, and just love them. The confetti dots are printed in a sort of ikat pattern, in complementary colors and a modern type treatment. We can't decide if we like the design in shades of blue, or neon pink and peach more. Both versions are a fun and modern take on a wedding invitation, perfect for a couple having a casual summer event.
We love these new bright, letterpress coasters featuring fun bug patterns! Insect patterns can easily seem creepy crawly, but the neon colors and little floral elements make these designs unique. These coasters, especially the black beetle, would be perfect for a Halloween party or just to brighten up your coffee table. Imagine sipping morning coffee with a beautiful yellow bee next to your mug. These coasters are available in sets of 8 with 2 of each design on our website shop.
A few months ago, Joyce and Ben came to us to design and print their wedding invitations. We knew it was going to be a fun job, when their dog popped up to say hello during our meeting! Their wedding was held at a beautiful inn in upstate New York on the Hudson River called Buttermilk Falls.
They wanted a pop of bright color, so we paired a fluorescent blue with a more subdued charcoal ink. The colors contrast each other well, and break up the design in an interesting way. We also printed a custom envelope liner for them, featuring a road map of upstate New York, with their location resting just at the fold.
Joyce and Ben wanted to mix some fun illustrations of their beloved dog, Penny with a classic design, and we think the result is wonderful. They commissioned an artist to illustrate some scenes of Penny from one of their trips to Buttermilk Falls. We love the drawings of Penny, nose to nose with a llama, and hanging out with some chickens. It's fun, personal touches like these that make custom invitations worthwhile.
We don't know about you, but here in Brooklyn we're ready for spring. The thrill of historic snowstorms has come and gone and all we're left with are icy sidewalks and bitterly cold temperatures. Here are a few bright projects that we've printed recently that have us thinking of the blue skies and sunny days ahead.
Hopefully these bright images bring a little sunshine to your day or at least a smile to your face!
