Our friends at Salutations in Charlotte, North Carolina sent along these adorable letterpress invitations for printing. The couple submitted their own custom artwork to be printed on each piece in their suite. The pairing of our cherry and azure inks also makes a bold statement – and we definitely think their creativity shines through.

Our friend JoEllen at Bennett Schneider, Inc. in Stilwell, Kansas submitted these gorgeously grommeted save the dates for printing. Offset printed in our ocean and glacier inks, the save the date swivels so guests can read up on lodging and travel information. We think you’ll agree that a cool color palette and our babine pattern is what makes these particularly charming.

Here at Smock our Odin design is one of the invitations in particular that we get really excited about seeing customized and personalized. And we feel that our friend, Cheryl at Paper Studio in Ontario, Canada did a fabulous job dreaming up this Odin suite. Letterpressed in taupe and eggplant inks this bilingual set includes an English language invitation and a French language invitation. The back of each card is offset printed in our willoughby pattern in taupe, adding even more personality to this lively suite. The envelopes are lined in metallic camel providing a picture perfect contrast against their wedding colors.

Can we have a drum roll please? Why, you ask? Because we are over the moon excited for the launch of foil stamping at Smock! These custom letterpress invitations feature silver matte foil for the bride and groom’s name, adding just a touch of shimmer to this traditional wedding set. Foil stamping allows us to incorporate the very look of metallics onto custom printing. So now there is truly a way to make your own wedding invitations outshine the rest. Classic black paired with silver matte foil looks impeccable and clean cut on these. We’d like to thank our friends at The Write Image in Rockville, Maryland for sending us this amazing suite.

We’re always excited to see the creative and unique invitation orders from Michelle at Paperkiss in Balmain, Australia. This beyond beautiful custom invitation is letterpressed in our glacier ink which adds even more to the nautical design. Such a soft color palette makes this invitation even more charming! We also feel the soft hue helps set a romantic atmosphere for the upcoming nuptials. We’ve heard that starfish represent a love that cannot be measured – and this makes this invitation all the more sweet!

We are always amazed at the gorgeous letterpress invitations we get to print for Smock retailer The Wedding Company, but it’s not very often that we get to see an actual event that they put on. The Wedding Company is a full service wedding planning boutique based in Hong Kong, and recently they put on an incredible bridal showcase, complete with romantic décor, elaborate cakes, gorgeous tables and a sweet candy buffet. They even had time to put together an incredible Smock display, and created paper flowers and pinwheels with our double-sided, eco friendly gift wrap for the occasion! We were blown away by the end result — take a look!
Nole Garey, editor and publisher of Oh So Beautiful Paper, gave this fantastic invitation set first place in our design contest! Nole loved the texture and the playful yet elegant mix of patterns for this wedding invitation set, and we couldn’t agree more – it’s simply stunning!
Danielle from Creative Touch Party Design in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida always sends us gorgeous designs, and this set is no exception. Much of the inspiration for this design was pulled from Smock’s Dawson suite, sleeve and all. Layers of dynamically designed pieces in this suite really bring it to life, and the colors of pewter and merlot give the playful patterns a little sophistication.
Danielle gave us the scoop on the inspiration behind these invitations. “The wedding colors are shades of wine and berry with silver. The wine color comes from her Lulu Kate bridesmaid dresses, which are just beautiful. These were the inspiration for the border color. The gray picks up the silver throughout the wedding decor. And the men are wearing gray tuxedos, which is reflective in the pocket she chose. The linens are a modern lace pattern which is reminiscent of the quilting in the invitation itself.”
We loved this set — congratulations, Danielle! And a huge thanks to Nole for judging the contest!
