If you're looking for a subtle image to accent your custom stationery, we recommend printing in a blind emboss like these images illustrate. Generally, we use a touch of pigment in a clear ink to help give the image a bit of shadow on the paper. The result is a beautiful bit of texture that allows your text to stand out, while giving the design a bit more depth. We don't recommend doing a blind or tinted emboss for text, as it is not reliably legible.
We've added a few new designs to our wedding collection this year, and we're so excited about them! Wildflowers is a letterpress invitation set inspired by a lush flower garden, full of all sorts of floral beauties. The invitation card has a gorgeous floral border that we printed in black ink, so you can really see all of the details. The text is printed in a pale pink for a nice contrast and to soften the look.
We added a really pretty rose to the envelope liner, and printed it in a tint of pink on some pale pink paper. Its such a nice surprise when you open the envelope! Another detail is the belly band, adorned with daisies and the wedding website information. These pieces really complete the set for a luxe invitation experience.
Karen from Smashing the Glass featured the gorgeous wedding of Natalie & Alex recently. We worked with them on their wedding invitations and just loved the whole suite! Its so nice to get a glimpse of the wedding, after working with a couple and we were so excited to see some of their beautiful photos. It was such a romantic wedding, and the bride and groom looked so wonderfully happy!

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.
