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.

Soft, subtle hues are what’s in right now! Take a look at these trendsetter custom letterpress wedding invitations. This whimsical set was submitted to us by our great friend, Kappy at Le Village Marche in Arlington, Virginia. We love that our lyon border is featured on the left side of the invitation – adding to the modern feel of this suite. Although this set is more on the contemporary side – choosing a softer color palette helps maintain a timeless and elegant feel for your wedding day. We think these stylish invitations will surely delight their guests!

We have the lovely Jenny from Jenny’s Paper, Ink! to thank for these incredible letterpress Bat Mitzvah invitations that we recently had the pleasure of printing. The invitations have a sweet, youthful look and feature fun fonts and bold colors. Jenny said the inspiration for these Bat Mitzvah invitations began with a custom sleeve – Sari fell in love with the idea of keeping the entire invitation set together without using a typical folio or bellyband. From there, they created a logo that could be used throughout the event by pairing our Louise font with our Dawson cartouche. Next came the patterns and colors — Sari’s favorite color is blue, so robin’s egg was a perfect choice, and adding black as a second ink color gave the invitation a bold look. The Champlain pattern was used in different ways throughout the entire set, and complemented the playful fonts and bold ink combination beautifully. The finished product was amazing and set the tone for a fabulous weekend with family and friends. Congratulations and thank you to Jenny for sending us such a stunning invitation set!

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!

This cool Hekla custom letterpress + offset invitation suite was submitted by our friends at Hitched in Washington DC. The invitation is letterpress printed on our bamboo 2-ply paper in black with a blind deboss ink that makes it pop. The edge painting in spring and an offset back pattern in black add to the uniqueness of this piece. To top it all off, they decided to go with one of our new chesapeake die-cuts. It is accompanied by an outer envelope lined with our ashford pattern in spring. The piece that makes this suite amazing is the custom sleeve – offset with our seneca pattern in black.
