Does it get any cuter than this? Take a look at these absolutely stunning save the dates submitted to us by our wonderful friends at Union Street Papery in San Francisco, California. Hole drilled with beautiful silver grommets attached so as the save the date swivels, you can read up about accommodations for the wedding weekend! Our Robson design looks chic letterpressed in our spring and midnight inks. We know we don’t have to tell you that these days everyone has busy schedules! So this is all the more reason to send save the dates as soon as you’ve set the date! Save the dates are a great way to give your guests advance notice of the wedding date so you can be sure they’ll be in attendance for the big day! We’re over the moon for these because the surprise accommodations card truly allows your guests to begin their own planning. This couple’s wedding is during Memorial Day weekend – which is all the more reason to make sure to catch people before they’ve already made plans of their own!

Our great friend, Toni at The Write Image in Rockville, Maryland submitted these breathtaking Sabion letterpress invitations to us. Our midnight and lavender inks print beautifully on our thick 2-ply bamboo paper. The couple chose to coordinate their set with two cards that were printed with the lavender front patterning and then two cards were printed with only midnight ink – which makes for a peppy look with contrasting pieces! Corner rounding and a beautiful patterned envelope liner in midnight complete this suite.

Because the full order was offset in midnight and peacock inks, she was able to help the client save a bit of money and still get them an eye-catching design.
