Now that the wedding has passed, we are able to show you the amazing suite she designed, and we couldn’t be happier to share these with everyone! The suite was letterpress printed in our Pewter ink on our beautiful white bamboo 2-ply paper. All of the pieces were fitted with an offset border in pewter and die-cut in our new Chesapeake design. Each piece has a decorative offset backing and is finished with perfect edge painting in Pewter. The invitation, reply cards, and events card are tucked nicely into a custom offset sleeve.

Our fabulous friends at By Invitation Only in Little Rock, Arkansas submitted these custom save the dates to us for printing! We were completely blown away when we saw the end result — we knew these had to be a part of our annual design contest. These save the dates were actually printed for Paige – one of the lovely ladies at By Invitation Only. It was our pleasure to work on save the dates that just overflow with sweetness.
Choosing our smaller card size (S5) is a wonderful way to help keep costs down and with this set, the smaller card really worked – since the back of the card reads small card, big party - and with letterpress on both the front and back these save the dates are so beautifully textured and without a doubt, one of a kind!

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.
You need these letterpress invitations now. We’re serious. Our 14 brand new letterpress wedding invitation designs just launched on our web site and they’re available in stores right now, too. Some of our favorites include the chevron-crazy Hekla, the preppy formal Breton, and the romantic flutter of Aneto. We didn’t feel like stopping after 14 designs, though — the new album features a customization of each design, so we’ve doubled the amount of pretty you can choose from. We only spent, oh, about 9 months on this release. But it was worth it.
Planning a Bar or Bat Mitzvah? Wedding? Birthday Party? Rehearsal Dinner? Baby shower?? These new designs are perfect for special occasions, and they’re all completely customizable, so go crazy & make one your own. We think you’ll love the die-cuts (or perhaps some hand bordering?), and the new gift wrap liners are pretty cool, too. We even have coordinating postage stamps to go with each new design.

If a fabulous letterpress thank you card is the perfect way to thank guests for celebrating with you, than undeniably the perfect way to kick off the festivities is with a show-stopping letterpress save the date. We love this recent Haddington save the date, printed for a fall wedding in Philly. Dreamed up by our friends at Judy Paulen Designs, featuring our Smock Spencerian calligraphy font in eggplant ink, its beauty lies in its elegant simplicity. It’s perfectly sweet and charming, printed on our smaller reply card size, making it both more affordable and more eco-friendly as it uses less paper. The motif is from our rousseau pattern, making it a truly custom design that we adore.
This is the Haddington letterpress save the date printed in a vibrant raspberry ink. We often print the Haddington design in dark inks — blacks, grays — but wow, it’s so pretty and cool in raspberry. We also love the mixture of fonts (the serif Inigo font + our Smock Spencerian font). And we love that it’s a double-sided save the date too, with accommodation information on the reverse side of the card. We can easily make any of our letterpress pieces double-sided — a nice option which saves paper and saves money too, when compared with the price of two separate cards. This save the date was sent to us by our friends at Events in Houston.
