Playful patterned rehearsal dinner & brunch invitations

We love the way these rehearsal dinner and brunch invitations tie several different patterns together. Our Emory frame cartouche is included on all of the cards, but varying patterns surround the frame on the rehearsal dinner invitation, brunch card, and reply card. The airy, tropical color palette of sea mist and papaya helps set the tone for these fun wedding weekend events.

Petite letterpress save the dates

The sweetest little sea mist heart highlighted Liza & Richie’s special day on their Chapman letterpress save the dates. Corner rounding and a custom stamp featuring the same little blue heart were added on as finishing touches.

Design Contest Winner: Be Lucky in Love with these Offset Save the Dates

Cori at Social Graces in Nashville, Tennessee sent us this adorable Odin customization!  These offset printed save the dates are both personalized and creative, and were printed in a very cool color palette of our sea mist + grass inks. When we asked Cori what inspired this design she told us that the bride was drawn to the fun font style and whimsical frame, and loved how these elements balanced the striped background.  The wedding reception will be on her family’s horse farm, so the couple thought it would be appropriate to include a horseshoe.  Here at Smock, we believe these save the dates are lucky!  Common legend is that keeping the ends of a horseshoe point up keeps all of the good luck in. Congrats to the lucky bride and groom, and bravo to Social Graces for such an inspired design!

Pastel Letterpress Wedding Invitations!

You just might say we have a soft side for pastel ink colors letterpressed on our thick 2-ply bamboo paper-and you would be right.  Take a look at these elegant Engadine invitations submitted to us by our good friends at Salutations in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  Softer hues have a way of looking peaceful and calm, without being over the top.  The highlight is of course the gorgeous folio offset printed on the interior and exterior in the coolest colors to keep things modern.  There is a real warmth seen throughout this suite and we adore it!

Custom Letterpress Invitation – Pure Elegance

Thanks to Melanie at Salutations in Charlotte, North Carolina for the opportunity to print a beautiful letterpress + offset wedding invitations. Using submitted artwork to combine offset printing for their folio and letterpress printing for their cards, the patterns and designs used in this set were very striking. Seamist compliments taupe very well to begin with, but we were very pleased to see how elegant everything looked when put together. Great work, Melanie!

Beach Chic Letterpress Invitations

Our rockin’ friends at Salutations sent us this fabulous beach-inspired letterpress invitation design a while back. We’re calling it an oldie but goodie, featuring pewter ink on our seamist bamboo paper. It’s tea length to fit our #10 envelopes, which were lined in our seneca stripe pattern in coordinating pewter ink. We love this design, featuring oceanic motifs from our Social Occasions album, for summer weddings and destination weddings and love how it brings an unexpected touch to a beach chic look.
