Vibrant glacier + gold foil stamped wedding invitations

We love when our clients customize their invitations and have fun with all of our patterns! These custom wedding invitations from Lion in the Sun were inspired by our Palmes customization and feature our van pattern on the front and our lashar pattern on the back. Gold matte foil stamping ups the elegance factor while a pretty patterned envelope liner in our papaya ink adds an extra pop of color.

Cheerful Aneto letterpress wedding invitations

It’s still cold and snowy here in Central New York, but these cheerful Aneto letterpress wedding invitations have us dreaming of warmer days! Our vibrant papaya ink was used throughout the entire set of these happy, floral invitations, which included a small square accommodations card as well as a separate reception card. A colorful papaya envelope liner in our fete pattern tied everything together!

Grommeted Offset Save the Dates – in Ocean + Glacier Inks

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.

Modern offset wedding suite in taupe + apricot inks

This trendy text based offset invitation suite was submitted to us by our wonderful friend, Liz at Gus & Ruby Letterpress in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  We were told the couple was looking for a type driven suite with a playful type – and we think this invitation encompasses that vision perfectly.  We’re loving the cool hues and the simplicity of this creative suite.  Our taupe and apricot inks simply blend so beautifully on our ivory bamboo paper.  When picturing your own wedding invitation – you should toss in a bit of your own creativity to match back to your wedding venue or personalities.

Letterpress + Foil Stamped Custom Wedding Invitations

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.
