Splendid Letterpress Bridal Shower Invitations

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.

Romantic Letterpress Suite in Black + Mulberry Inks

If you’re looking for a traditional wedding invitation suite – then look no further!  We’re head over heels for this simple and sweet letterpressed set submitted to us by our friends at The Dandelion Patch in Reston, Virginia.  Letterpressed in black ink with gorgeous mulberry edge paint that acts as the perfect accent to this one color set – we can’t help but swoon!  After looking at photos of the The Ritz Carlton in McLean Virginia, where the fabulous wedding was held – we see what a fanciful and lavish venue the couple chose for their special day.  Of course we believe tossing our mulberry ink into the mix helps keep this set looking romantic, but this set also encourages the feeling of the winter months.  The three letter monogram on both the invitation and letterpress belly band adds another touch of elegance to this striking set!

Modern + Traditional Bilingual letterpress wedding invitations!

Traditional wedding meets modern design in this wedding suite from our friends at Union Street Papery.  They put together this beautiful suite using our Talmossen design, which uses a traditional feel font and pairs it with modern design accents. This suite was done on our white Bamboo paper in Taupe ink. This was a wedding that brought together two cultures with invitations done in both English and Spanish version. All the pieces were finished off with metallic silver edge painting and the inner envelope was paired with a custom offset liner (our Fleming Design in Espresso) to give it that modern look.

inks: taupe + espresso (offset) | fonts: harrison calligraphy font | paper: 2-ply white + 1-ply white  | printing: letterpress + offset | envelope liner: fleming in espresso (offset) | edge paint: metallic silver

Beautiful Letterpress Invitations in Lime & Black inks!

What a wonderful suite we received from our friends at Landis Gifts & Stationery. This Ossa design was customized beautifully on our white bamboo paper, and letterpressed in Lime and Black inks. The invitation and reply card were edge painted in Orchid. The invitation is adhered to an awesome folio, offset printed in our Ashwell pattern in Black on the outside and in our Sherbrooke pattern in Lime on the inside. The final touch of brilliance is the envelope liner, offset printed in our Sherbrooke pattern in Lime to match. This one was a very personal suite as it was printed for the store owner’s daughter. We are so happy to be able to be included in such a special day.
