Archive for the ‘modern save the dates’ tag
Take a peek at these vibrant and high spirited save the dates! We have Melanie at Salutations in Charlotte, North Carolina to thank for these beauties! We were even able to get a bit of a back story to find out where the inspiration came to create a design so eye catching and brilliant. The bride loved the bold pattern of our Evans design and wanted to use our robin’s egg ink color to truly make a statement. We love to see couples choosing more modern and chic designs for their save the dates, even when they’re planning on sending a super formal invitation suite like these guys are planning. The happy couple said that their save the dates totally matched their fun and bubbly personalities — and we couldn’t agree more! Thanks so much to Salutations for sending us such a fun save the date set — we can’t wait to see the invitations!

This design won an honorable mention in our Smock design competition for the first half of 2012. This twice-a-year competition recognizes outstanding and inspired designs submitted by our beloved dealers.
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”.

Save the dates should help generate excitement for your special day and these contemporary custom offset save the dates are spot on! The custom artwork for these was submitted to us from our good friends at Papery & Cakery in Boca Raton, Florida these fun save the dates are perfectly personalized. We’re absolutely smitten with the ultramodern and trendy feel of this set. The dark pewter ink helps the spring ink stand out and this color pairing is absolutely enchanting! We love seeing save the dates that express style and these certainly do the trick.

We printed these cool save the dates in our Nass design for our friends at Gus & Ruby Letterpress. They are letterpress printed in pewter and a custom lime ink for a fresh, modern look. We love the mix of colors and great typography – big thanks to Gus & Ruby for working with us on this fabulous design!
Another custom design, these letterpress save the dates from Union Street Papery in San Francisco feature a cute penguin motif that the couple is incorporating throughout their celebration. We printed these in grass and midnight inks – they were then corner rounded and edge painted in grass. For the perfect finishing touch, the envelope was lined in our modsee pattern, also in grass. From the colors to the embellishments to the cute little penguins, everything about this save the date design is fun, personalized, and a unique reflection of this couple’s upcoming Southampton wedding.
