Elegant Rhon Letterpress Wedding Invitations in Dove + Black

We’ve really fallen for these elegant Rhon letterpress invitations submitted to us by our friends at Village Invites in New York City.  The cascading vines provide the perfect balance of romance and sophistication to this suite.  Tossing in a metallic platinum envelope liner adds a touch of shimmer and makes this set even more stylish.

Smock in the Press – Fall 2012

Letterpress wedding invitations and greeting cards from Smock have been spotted in some amazing places lately, and today we’re excited to share the features that Smock has been a part of this fall! For their Fall 2012 issue, Inside Weddings magazine included a custom wedding invitation set from Smock that featured a letterpress sleeve and combined two of our most popular designs: our floral Rhon design paired with elements from our more modern Dawson design.

An invitation customization featuring Smock's Rhon and Dawson designs was featured in the fall 2012 issue of Inside Weddings

Brides magazine featured one of our new, foil stamped wedding invitation designs and matching invitation sleeve — our whimsical Tatra customization — as part of their November issue.

Coastal Living included several of our products in their October 2012 issue as part of their “8 Steps to a Stress-Free Work Zone” feature. Our Bicyclette and Chatham scratchpads ($7 each) and our Breakers notebook ($9 each) are perfect reasons to take a break from technology to write down notes the old-fashioned way.

Floral Letterpress Save the Dates in Soft Hues

These letterpressed save the dates were submitted to us by our good friend, Aileen at Aileen Invitations in Miami Beach, Florida.  Our Rhon design looks truly sensational printed in our lavender and pewter inks.  There are certainly times when a softer color palette works best and this is definitely one of those times!  We print save the dates for all sorts of occasions and these save the dates happen to be for an engagement celebration.  We can’t help but feel that the lavender ink represents gracefulness and charm while the pewter ink helps keep this set looking refined.  Purple hues have always been connected to royalty which makes these save the dates all the more classic.  The couple chose our payette pattern in lavender for both the offset back patterning and envelope liner – which ties this whole set together nicely.

Good Vibes Radiated from a Beautiful Letterpressed Suite

Sneak a peek at this beyond beautiful letterpress Rhon invitation suite submitted to us by our friend Casie at Francis~Orr Corona del Mar in Corona del Mar, California.  The color combination of verbena and taupe transforms the look of this set into something almost vintage!  And everyone knows yellow represents sunshine and joy!  We can’t help but feel this yellow hue helps radiant happiness about the couple’s big day.  Our rhon pattern in verbena on the pocketfold’s exterior adds the most elegant touch to this sensational suite!  We always enjoy working with Francis~Orr because they submit some of the most creative invitation sets!

Design Contest Winner: A Perfect Shade of Papaya by Scriptura


One of our greatest reviewed Rhon designs, brought to us by Margaret at Scriptura.  Having struggled to find just the right color combination, Margaret eventually struck gold…or should we say, “struck papaya?”

 

The papaya ink worked very well with the offset shell and lettepressed pewter.  The addition of the program fan was a great way to tie everything together — the full set looks amazing.

Design Contest Winner: An Elegant Combination by Judy Paulen Designs

 

Merging the design elements of Haddington and Rhon, Alyssa from Judy Paulen Designs shows just how to balance a letterpress wedding invitation set.

Smock in Stationery Trends!

In May, with the National Stationery Show fast approaching and just in time for Smock’s first birthday, we were completely excited to see one of our letterpress birthday cards, our Happy Happy Birthday to You card, on the cover of the spring 2009 issue of Stationery Trends! Coincidentally, the magazine was also celebrating their first birthday and wanted to showcase a great birthday card on the cover. We’re sincerely honored that they chose one of ours! Inside that same issue, they also showcased a beautiful customization of one of our letterpress wedding invitation designs, Rhon, which we printed as a letterpress bat mitzvah invitation.
