Our good friend Joanne at Cambridge Street Papers in Chatham, New Jersey submitted these contemporary letterpress bridal shower invitations to us for printing – and we think these are a real treat! We’re big softies when it comes to inkless blind deboss paired with the perfect ink color – and this set has it all! The bodin motif was printed with inkless blind deboss for a chic, subtle look, and the edges of the invitation were painted in grass – a somewhat unexpected edge paint color, but a fabulous embellishment for this set. The bouts of color do not end there – the back of the invitation was offset printed in our sinclair pattern – and this flood of raspberry makes this set all the more sweet.

If you’re looking for a traditional wedding invitation suite – then look no further! We’re head over heels for this simple and sweet letterpressed set submitted to us by our friends at The Dandelion Patch in Reston, Virginia. Letterpressed in black ink with gorgeous mulberry edge paint that acts as the perfect accent to this one color set – we can’t help but swoon! After looking at photos of the The Ritz Carlton in McLean Virginia, where the fabulous wedding was held – we see what a fanciful and lavish venue the couple chose for their special day. Of course we believe tossing our mulberry ink into the mix helps keep this set looking romantic, but this set also encourages the feeling of the winter months. The three letter monogram on both the invitation and letterpress belly band adds another touch of elegance to this striking set!

These letterpressed save the dates were submitted to us by our good friend, Aileen at Aileen Invitations in Miami Beach, Florida. Our Rhon design looks truly sensational printed in our lavender and pewter inks. There are certainly times when a softer color palette works best and this is definitely one of those times! We print save the dates for all sorts of occasions and these save the dates happen to be for an engagement celebration. We can’t help but feel that the lavender ink represents gracefulness and charm while the pewter ink helps keep this set looking refined. Purple hues have always been connected to royalty which makes these save the dates all the more classic. The couple chose our payette pattern in lavender for both the offset back patterning and envelope liner – which ties this whole set together nicely.
