The Smock Albums

Welcome to Smock.

Smock is an inspired line of letterpress wedding invitations and stationery sustainably printed on our own bamboo paper in upstate New York.  In addition to our custom albums, we also have a stylish line of everyday stationery essentials. Our current album offerings include:

Wedding Album Volume 7

Holiday Album

Mitzvah Album

You can learn more about all of our albums below. Find out how we work (check out the details to learn about our specials, turnaround time, retail pricing and more) or learn more about us.

The Wedding Album.

Our album showcases full wedding stationery suites, making it easy for your clients to fall in love with more than just an invitation. Accompanying pieces — like save the dates, menus, rehearsal dinner cards, wedding programs, coasters, and more — are shown in each album. All of our printing methods are featured — letterpress printing, foil stamping, and digital printing — and embellishments can be added to create  one-of-a-kind designs.

We’re known for our ability to customize options, so go wild. Add a foil stamped liner; use one of our 7 exclusive calligraphy fonts; add foil edging or edge painting; create a custom invitation sleeve or folio or use one of our unique die cuts; add front or back patterning, or create a colorful patterned liner. You can also customize by changing the inks, fonts, motifs, and design orientation.

Our wedding album, Volume 7, features 12 new design suites, with design styles ranging from vintage to modern to classic.

The Holiday Album.

Released in 2015, our Holiday Album features 45 designs for the holidays, including Christmas and Hanukkah cards, holiday party invitations, and corporate holiday greetings. This album expands upon our existing collection of custom holiday designs, and features letterpress printing, foil stamping, and digital printing. The album includes many of our customization options as well, such as our foil stamped envelope liners, our exclusive calligraphy fonts, die-cut shapes, and foil edging.

The Mitzvah Album.

Featuring an inspired variety of Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah, and B’nai Mitzvah invitation designs, the Mitzvah Album is the first of its kind from Smock. The Mitzvah album contains 24 show-stopping designs on our exclusive 1, 2, and 3-ply bamboo paper. This album is just the tool you need to grow your letterpress Mitzvah business. The Mitzvah album shows the most commonly ordered pieces for Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah events – invitations, reply cards, party cards, donation cards, save the dates, direction cards, and thank you notes. The designs are quintessentially Smock, and range from traditional to modern.

Design Library

In our revamped design library, find information on all of our embellishment offerings, like variable printing, foil stamped envelope liners, invitation sleeves, colorful digital envelope liners, die-cut shapes, beautiful foils and letterpress inks, a substantial selection of fonts, new patterns, and much more. It’s an essential resource for wedding, but also great for mitzvah, holiday, baby, and anything custom.
