Submitted to us by our good friend, Elle at Petite & Sweet in Toronto, Canada these letterpressed Hekla baptism invitations are downright swank! I mean talk about being up-to-the-minute! These invitations showcase our royale and inkless blind deboss inks – and the end result makes for some of the most chic invitations we’ve had the joy of printing in quite some time. The envelope liner adds another nice modernistic touch to this anything but simplistic set! We think these invitations are the perfect prelude to such a memorable occasion – and helped achieve the vision the proud parents were hoping for. We look forward to many more unique and current customizations from Petite & Sweet!

This vintage inspired customization of our Chasseral design was submitted to us by our great friends at LS Amster Company in Scarsdale, New York. We think our eggplant and saffron inks were the perfect pairing for an autumn wedding. The rich colors of the season are seen throughout- so much that it’s easy to see the leaves changing color! The iznik pattern envelope lining in saffron gives off the perfect amount of charm! Complete with direction cards printed on both front and back- these cards tell guests everything they need to know about getting to the celebration! The couple also chose letterpress thank you cards and we cannot think of a better way to show all of your guests your gratitude for being such an important part of your special day. Vintage inspired + autumn color palette = ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING!

With a pairing of our navy and azalea inks we have a real beauty on our hands! These lovely letterpress save the dates were submitted to us by our great friends at By Invitation Only in Little Rock, Arkansas. The couple chose our willoughby pattern for the top and bottom of their save the dates – which we think adds a real elegant factor. We can’t get enough of this stunning color combination because it’s not overly feminine and has just a touch of boyish charm – within the navy ink. And we’re all about couples sending their save the dates early – it’s customary to mail save the dates six months to a year before the big day. This allows your guests enough time to book their accommodations, save enough spending money and request time off work. Mailing your save the dates early also allows your guests to count down the days til the “I Do’s”.

We love hand bordering! Bringing metallic gold to the front of this rehearsal card was a great way for Rugg Road in Boston, MA to accentuate the silver font and shell-colored liner. I think Cristina did a fantastic job this one. It’s simple and elegant and we were very impressed.

It’s time to say thanks to the fantastic editors who have featured Smock’s letterpress wedding invitations, greeting cards, gift-wrap, and more in their magazines and on their blogs over the past few months. Our first feature is from Brides magazine, which showed our Palmer letterpress wedding invitations in their White Hot! section of their November edition — they were digging the die-cut shape and the fact that our invitations are eco-friendly!
Eco Beautiful Weddings, an online magazine, recently featured Smock wedding invitations in their winter 2012 edition in “Green Is” — a section that helps brides track down eco-friendly goods for their weddings, and MODBlog also featured a variety of Smock wedding invitations this fall!

Our wonderful friend Cheryl at Paper Studio in Ontario, Canada submitted this remarkable custom invitation suite to us for printing. It’s easy to get lost in the splendor of this simplistic set because it has the coolest customizations! The couple chose our elegant rousseau pattern for offset backing on their invitation, reply cards-and coordinated this with an envelope liner to match! The gold and taupe inks are perfect for a wedding celebration in the middle of the any season! We also printed what we think are the most adorable and whimsical double sided information cards we’ve seen in quite some time. Choosing a text-based invitation is an excellent way to keep your set looking classy!

Sneak a peek at this beyond beautiful letterpress Rhon invitation suite submitted to us by our friend Casie at Francis~Orr Corona del Mar in Corona del Mar, California. The color combination of verbena and taupe transforms the look of this set into something almost vintage! And everyone knows yellow represents sunshine and joy! We can’t help but feel this yellow hue helps radiant happiness about the couple’s big day. Our rhon pattern in verbena on the pocketfold’s exterior adds the most elegant touch to this sensational suite! We always enjoy working with Francis~Orr because they submit some of the most creative invitation sets!
