Newport, Rhode Island Save the Date

We printed these beautiful sea-inspired Save the Date cards for Valery and Chris for their summer wedding in Newport, Rhode Island. They opted for a bright, nautical blue paired with charcoal ink and a great wave illustration. They had the great idea to include an enclosure card to encourage guests to book their rooms early. These cards can be especially helpful for a wedding taking place in a popular location, like Newport in the summer.

Blind Embossing

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.

Destination Wedding in Mexico

The winter blues are real, so we're thinking of sunny days in Mexico to pass the time. Last year, we designed these invitations for a lovely couple having a destination wedding. They wanted to incorporate the symbol of a zia sun into the design, as well as a nod to the beach with a wave illustration. We created a custom monogram featuring the sun and their initials. We letterpress printed the suite in gold and a subtle tint, including a custom envelope liner. Overall, it had an elegant, but laid back vibe, much like a destination wedding in Mexico!

Reception stationery

Once a couple have received their printed invitations, it's often time to start thinking about reception stationery. It's really nice for us to continue working with clients on their wedding programs, escort cards, menus and other pieces. We can draw out themes from the invitation to use across these items.

Our Under the Sea design with its vivid octopus motif works really well on these menus, table cards and escort cards:

We like how the wave illustration adds a slightly different look to the set.

At the other end of the spectrum, our subtle Pale Florals set allows for some really pretty additional pieces that feature blind embossing on the menu and escort card envelope:

Thinking about your reception stationery alongside your invitations is a great way to create a unified look across your whole wedding: from the anticipation of the event to the big day itself!

Modern Beach Inspired Wedding

After a busy Spring with invitation printing, the Stationery Show and general studio printing, we are finally catching our breath and working on the website and blog again. Our friend Denise Fasanello does the most beautiful floral displays I have ever seen. She has been designing a series of modern table settings for Brooklyn Bride. We were excited to have our new imprintable stationery featured in the Modern Beach Theme shoot along with our anchor coasters.
