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.
Congratulations to Emily & Mike for their wedding this weekend! Basilica Hudson is such a cool venue, and we love designing invitations for weddings there. We used our Downtown design, and customized it, with the addition of an image of the Basilica Hudson building in a tinted embossed ink. The save the date card was printed with a brick wall pattern, to play on the structure of the building. Holding the cards together was a custom website tag, printed with the same brick pattern. The whole design was enveloped in a lined gray envelope featuring a vintage map of the Hudson Valley and upstate New York.
Congratulations to Susie and Rich for their New Jersey shore wedding this month! This design was based on our Timeless template, with the addition of a sweet, dotted border and a custom envelope liner featuring a vintage map of the New Jersey shore. All the pieces of this set, including the personalized thank you cards, were printed in a deep blue on warm white paper.
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.
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!
Congrats to Jensen and Andrew on their recent wedding! We used our Art Deco inspired Gatsby design for their invitations in navy and light gray ink on warm white paper. For a fun element, we printed vintage NYC maps for custom envelope liners. We love the little detail of the clinking champagne glasses on the bottom of the invitation, to note the wedding attire.
Congratulations to Hilary and Jonathon on their wedding this weekend! Their invitations were inspired by ornamental building accents with that beautiful green corrosion of copper called verdigris.
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.
Congrats to Stephanie & Stefan for their wedding in Brooklyn this week! They were married at Liberty Warehouse, which has views of the iconic Statue of Liberty, which inspired their invitation design. They chose our Vintage NYC template and we created a monogram using the Statue of Liberty, to be used on the invite and thank you notes. A vintage map of Brooklyn lined the envelope for a deluxe look.
Congrats to Courtney and Nicholas for their wedding this weekend! They our Vintage NYC design for their lovely city wedding, featuring some city icons and a vintage map for the envelope liner. Black and gold ink were the perfect combination for a black tie wedding.
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.
Congratulations to Amanda and Asher on their wedding this week! We've been collaborating with them over the last 9 months to print save the date announcements, invitations and programs. It's been really fun customizing our Downtown design for their wedding (we especially love the carrier pigeon) and we wish them all the best!
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.
January can be cold and bleak outside, but this month in the studio we're thinking of spring and summer as we're in the thick of the "Save the Date" printing season.
These cards can be lighthearted and more casual than the formal invitation, printing in brighter colors or creative formats (like bookmarks or coasters) or they can match the design closely so the guests have a sense of the celebration to come.
Regardless of the design, the text for these is usually very minimal. It typically includes the names of the couple, the date, the city of the wedding and often a website address for guests to refer to for details on travel, accommodations, wedding registries etc... For more samples of Save the Date wording, please visit our website where we've added sample text for all the cards in a suite.
We're in the midst of working on many letterpress wedding suites right now, as these summer weddings will be here before we know it! We love the combination of a vintage map and classic script type on this nautical save the date. The map is printed in a pale dusty blue and the information in strong navy blue, with a sweet little heart to mark the location of the wedding. It's a simple design, but we think it's perfect for a summer wedding in the Hamptons!
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.
