Watercolor Wedding Invitation Suite

In 2013 we released digital printing and boy do we love it! This letterpress set submitted by Judy Paulen Designs was for a local Syracuse wedding.  A custom submitted pattern was digitally printed on all of the pieces creating a pretty purple & pink watercolor wedding invitation suite.

Altar in Pewter and Gossamer

Featuring offset back patterning, letterpress printing in pewter and gossamer, and an offset printed belly band to tie it all together, this Altar invitation suite turned out really lovely.  Belly bands are a great way to keep insert pieces neatly organized inside the envelope, and they also help tie things together visually as well.  Many thanks to Nota Bene for submitting this order for us to print!

Dawson Design – Letterpressed in Dove + Pewter

Dawson has always been one of our dealers very favorites – and we adore this customization submitted to us by By Invitation Only in Arkansas.  Opting for our largest square size, the invitation looks even more modern and ever so chic.  The softer color palette carried throughout and a distinguish looking envelope lining maintains sophistication on these.

Bubbly Letterpress Rehearsal Dinner Invitations

Inscriptions on the Boulevard in Fort Worth, Texas submitted these cheery rehearsal dinner invitations. Our pearl pattern was used on the invitation and the exterior of the folio, and gives off a fun, confetti-like look. The bubbly feel continued onto each insert card in the suite, and we love the way this stellar set came together!

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.

Design Contest First Place Winner: Custom Dawson Wedding Invitations from Creative Touch!

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!
