Custom photo save the dates

We created these custom photo save the dates for Kristin & Diego’s Palm Beach wedding using one of our newest printing methods – digital printing! Digital printing makes it possible to print photos  and lots of colors on our luxurious bamboo paper, but you can also create a monochromatic look with the occasional pop of color, too.

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.

Grommeted Robson Save The Dates in Spring + Midnight

Does it get any cuter than this?  Take a look at these absolutely stunning save the dates submitted to us by our wonderful friends at Union Street Papery in San Francisco, California.  Hole drilled with beautiful silver grommets attached so as the save the date swivels, you can read up about accommodations for the wedding weekend!  Our Robson design looks chic letterpressed in our spring and midnight inks.  We know we don’t have to tell you that these days everyone has busy schedules!  So this is all the more reason to send save the dates as soon as you’ve set the date!   Save the dates are a great way to give your guests advance notice of the wedding date so you can be sure they’ll be in attendance for the big day!  We’re over the moon for these because the surprise accommodations card truly allows your guests to begin their own planning.  This couple’s wedding is during Memorial Day weekend – which is all the more reason to make sure to catch people before they’ve already made plans of their own!

Wash away in a sea of love with these Custom Letterpress Save the Dates

It’s easy to get swept away in these beautiful and delicate letterpress save the dates.  These beauties were submitted to us by our great friend, Nancy at Epitome Papers in Edina, Minnesota.  We think you’ll agree that these save the dates are current and look absolutely fabulous printed in three ink colors.  The oversized textured starfish is the perfect motif for a seaside wedding in Key Largo, Florida.  These save the dates are whimsical in their own right – while still being playful and chic.  The seahorse pattern envelope liner really makes a bold statement of what guests can expect as far as wedding atmosphere.  We can just close our eyes and feel the warmth of the golden sunshine and the white sandy beaches!

Now that the wedding has passed, we are able to show you the amazing suite she designed, and we couldn’t be happier to share these with everyone! The suite was letterpress printed in our Pewter ink on our beautiful white bamboo 2-ply paper. All of the pieces were fitted with an offset border in pewter and die-cut in our new Chesapeake design. Each piece has a decorative offset backing and is finished with perfect edge painting in Pewter. The invitation, reply cards, and events card are tucked nicely into a custom offset sleeve.

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!
