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!

Gray & Blush Roses

Congratulations to Kristiana & Marlon for their romantic wedding in the Rose Garden at Lyndhurst Mansion. What could be more perfect than our Roses design for this outdoor wedding? Dark charcoal ink and a tinted embossing of flowers look beautiful together on warm white invitations. The Rehearsal Dinner and website cards have roses printed in a blush pink tint, that blends well behind the charcoal ink.

Roses in Blue

We want to wish a big congratulations to Alexa and Adam! They were married in Williamsburg with gorgeous views of Manhattan from this weekend. They chose our Roses design, but wanted to modernize the typography a bit to fit in with their cool Brooklyn vibe. A pale blue colored envelope sets off the blue type and tinted embossed floral pattern.

Romantic Roses in the Catskills Wedding

Another wedding in the works during our month of florals! Congratulations to Mary and Ryan for their wedding in the Catskills today. They chose our Roses design, but customized it with a unique placement of the floral illustration. The rose is centered on their invitation card, but printed in a tint of gray for a subtle background effect.

Tinted Embossing

We're often asked about printing "blind", which means printing without any ink, so you just see the impression of an image or text. While the subtlety of a blind emboss is nice, we prefer to print a tinted emboss. These photos illustrate the soft quality of an illustration printed with transparent ink, sized with  a touch of gray ink. This small amount of ink helps to create a bit of a shadow on the paper, so that the image reads a little better, but doesn't interfere with the text.
