Keira Recipe shower invitations

Lydia at No Regrets worked with a lovely group of ladies to create these custom recipe shower invitations featuring our Keira design. The invitations were letterpress printed in jute ink, with Lauren’s name taking center stage in gold matte foil and our Ruby calligraphy font. Custom recipe cards were also printed for the occasion, with a special line at the bottom for the recipe giver’s name.

Copper shine foil wedding announcements

We created Francine and David’s wedding announcements by customizing our Palmer design in copper shine foil. The contemporary #10 sized announcements were paired with Ridley patterned envelope liners in our peacock ink, along with a cute return address indicating “the new Mr. & Mrs.” – what a fun idea!

Custom confetti inspired letterpress birth announcements

We created Blakely’s letterpress birth announcements and social notes by combining playful patterns in chartreuse and silver inks. Letterpress printed on our white bamboo paper, the announcement featured confetti-like dots from our Pearl pattern as well as our Bodin border. We digitally printed petite social notes and matching envelope liners in our Pearl pattern to match. What a sweet way to welcome a newborn!

Elegant Finley Bat Mitzvah Invitations with yellow accents

We worked with Jackie at Orrganics to customize our Finley Bat Mitzvah invitations for Elisabeth’s November celebration. The invitations featured gold matte foil stamping and yolk letterpress ink on our ultra thick 3-ply bamboo paper, with blind debossed floral accents adding a subtle design element. The invitations were corner rounded and edge painted in yolk ink, which coordinated with the pop of yellow on the invitations as well as the patterned envelope liners.

Striking black Fitzroy invitations with vintage floral prints

Sara and Richard created a jaw-dropping customization of our Fitzroy invitation design for their December wedding in Palos Verdes. The couple worked with Melody at Urbanic to customize the design, which included a full flood of digitally printed black ink and bits of our anemone vintage print pattern. After we digitally printed the invitations and insert cards, we added tawny matte foil stamping in our Plaza calligraphy font. The vintage anemone print pattern was included on the envelope liners as well, tying the entire set together. Pretty gorgeous, huh?

Minty fresh gold foil stamped wedding invitations

Kristyn and Eric customized our Palmes design for their September wedding in Virginia. We letterpress printed their wedding invitations in fresh mint ink, and added gold matte foil for a touch of shine. The couple used our Marav pattern around the border of the invitation, with the reverse pattern taking center stage on the reply card and details card. Solid mint envelope liners gave the set a polished finish.
