Silver foil stamped Bat Mitzvah invitations with snowflake envelope liner

We worked with Uptowne Papers to create these silver foil stamped Bat Mitzvah invitations that are perfect for any wintry affair. They decided to add a little glimmer and shine to our Exeter design while keeping the reply card and reply envelope a bit more subtle with our Silver letterpress ink color. Little snowflakes were added as yet another wintry accent. To give the suite an extra special factor, we created a custom envelope liner pattern with Silver Shine snowflakes and a pearl background. The minute any guest opens their invitation, they will know right away that they are in for an elegant yet festive time!

Playful foil stamped holiday cards with colorful envelope liner

We couldn’t think of a better way to get back into the holiday spirit than with these playful foil stamped holiday cards! It’s hard not to smile while looking at those two cuties. Instead of using typical holiday colors, they changed it up by using a varying color palette for an extra touch of festive fun. The Fleming envelope liner pattern was a perfect compliment to the confetti pattern adorning the Collin’s design. We have no doubt this sweet family’s year was filled with nothing but love and laughter!

Nautical letterpress wedding day pieces for a Nantucket affair

Kate and Dan’s family and friends traveled from near and far to attend their Nantucket wedding celebration this past June. Their nautical letterpress wedding day pieces included programs, menus, table number cards and a details booklet. Each coordinated with the other, using blues such as our Royale and Azure letterpress inks as their color palette of choice. These pieces reflected the easy, laid-back nature of the island with design accents like an organic border around the program and a fun dot pattern for the table number cards. The details booklet added a personal touch with a note from the bride and groom and a list of events scheduled for the weekend. We have no doubt this wedding came together as beautifully as their day of pieces – thanks to the help of Parchment Fine Papers!

Modern watercolor rehearsal dinner invitations

Natasha and Jordan reimagined our Vista design with the help our friends at Needle in a Haystack. These watercolor rehearsal dinner invitations were a modern nod towards their South Carolina Aquarium venue. They opted for contemporary fonts that have never looked better while dressed up in our Silver Shine foil; all paired against a navy wash background. Our Dixon pattern as the envelope liner printed in Slate and Sky was the perfect compliment to this subtly aquatic set.

Sophisticated letterpress wedding invitations

James and Saragh’s wedding invitation suite reflects a monochromatic color palette with green as the leading color. These sophisticated letterpress wedding invitations carry a polished, classic kind of look that will never go out of style. While they decided to keep the cards themselves on the simple side, they played up the envelope liner by using our Payette pattern in Grass to match with the rest of the suite. To give this set a little extra love, a coordinating ribbon held everything together with a hand crafted monogram added as the finishing touch. Thanks to the help of our friend Shayne at Ink Papery, James and Saragh timeless invitation suite is something they will still look fondly at even after years of being together.

Gold foil stamped wedding invitations with seaside style

Take elegance, add a touch of nautical flair, and you’ll find Katherine and Matthew’s suite as the beautiful end result. You can never go wrong with classic gold foil stamped wedding invitations, but this couple decided to add their own twist by including a belly-band featuring an exquisite painting of Nantucket Island. The suite included other nods towards Nantucket like the motif of the island on the weekend celebration card and the nautical monogram on the invitation and thank you card. These kinds of accents made the suite harmonious in an incredibly tasteful way thanks to the help of Parchment Fine Papers. The watercolor envelope liner printed in Sea Mist was yet another subtle yet complimentary means of tying everything together.

Rose gold wedding invitations for a tropical affair

Elizabeth and John personalized our Prospect invitation suite to set the stage for their wedding at The Ritz-Carlton in Aruba. These rose gold wedding invitations were created thanks to the help of our friends at Fete Collection. The breezy script font combined with the more formal serif font gave the invitation a relaxed yet luxurious aesthetic. The additional pieces all printed in Jute letterpress mimicked the color of the sand guests will surely enjoy during their stay in Aruba. A rose gold envelope liner printed in our pearl pattern was a playful addition to the set. We can already hear the sound of the ocean’s waves and feel the sand between our toes after creating this wedding suite!
