4th of July Barn Party wedding invitations

Danna and Michael treated their guests to a casual 4th of July barbecue for their wedding last summer. We digitally printed a custom map complete with adorable illustrations that was adhered to a red, white and blue invitation folio. Their barn party wedding invitations were actually inserts for the folio, and included a phone number for RSVPs. We love the checkered look on the outside of the folio — perfectly fitting for a barn party celebration!

Patriotic Letterpress Moving Announcements

We created these fun moving announcements for the Sonneborn family’s move from California to the nation’s capital. The folded card included a funny list of what’s in and out for the family — some of our favorites included power hoodies for power suits, and Silicon Valley for Scandal. The inside of the card shared the family’s new address, with a note to please visit soon. A custom envelope liner complete with iconic DC buildings added an extra patriotic finishing touch.

Starfish social notes

Sienna chose the starfish motif from our Walsh design for her custom social notes. We letterpress printed her personal stationery in violet ink on our white bamboo paper, and created violet envelope liners in our aneto pattern to match.

Peach + gold ombré wedding invitations and save the dates

We created matching save the dates and ombré wedding invitations using our Spence design for Kasey and Adam’s Stone Harbor wedding celebration. The entire set was printed with gold matte foil, and the main two pieces included a pretty peach ombré fade. We duplexed the invitations to make them ultra thick, then added corner rounding and gold matte foil edging for a polished finish.

Modern gold foil save the dates

Courtney and Sonny combined the layout from our Rainier save the date with the design elements from our Tatra suite to create their gold foil save the dates. Their modern #10 design featured gold shine foil stamping and sage green letterpress design accents, along with solid sage green envelope liners.

Petite Rainier save the dates

For their wedding in Vero Beach, Florida, John and Alexandra chose our Rainier design for their save the dates. We letterpress printed their petite save the dates in cornflower ink, and accented the piece with tawny matte foil. Cornflower blue envelope liners in our Taihu pattern tied the set together perfectly.

Custom tropical wedding invitation suite

Tracey and Nicholas worked with us to create one of the most beautiful invitation suites we’ve ever printed! For their May wedding in the French West Indies, we digitally printed their tri-fold, passport style save the dates in pretty blues and pinks, then added gold shine foil stamping. An intricate custom crest complete with palm trees and their monogram was printed on both their save the dates and their gold wedding invitations, which also featured hand calligraphy. Their tropical invitation set included an events card and a reply card, which fit inside of a vibrant invitation sleeve complete with personal motifs – like the wedding chapel, a bottle of champagne, palm trees, and even the couple’s pup! Custom envelope liners for both the save the dates and the invitations were created to match each piece accordingly.

Colorful jewel toned Bat Mitzvah invitations

We personalized our Brynn design to create Maggie’s jewel toned Bat Mitzvah invitations. Featuring a pretty palette of orchid, azure, royale, and violet inks, the invitations and party cards both included a modern, text-based design on the front, with a colorful pattern covering the back. Orchid edge painting and striped patterned envelope liners added additional bursts of color to this sweet set.

Simple Chevron Rehearsal Dinner Invitations + Sleeves

For Jenna and Eric’s rehearsal dinner invitations, we created a simple, custom invitation that tucked inside of a ticket style sleeve. We letterpress printed our chevron pattern in jute ink on the invitation sleeves, then foil stamped the names of the bride and groom within a simple cartouche on the center of the piece. Letterpress printed envelope liners in our everett pattern added a fun element of pattern play to these sophisticated invitations.

Custom Chinoiserie inspired letterpress wedding invitation suite

We created a completely custom letterpress invitation suite for Honor and Jay’s black tie celebration at Winvian Farm earlier this month. The entire suite – which included an invitation and folio, save the date, reply card, website card, rehearsal dinner invitation, brunch card, and a custom map – featured custom, hand-drawn illustrations inspired by Chinoiserie style porcelain. Little nods to the wedding venue were worked into the custom illustrations, which spanned the entire back of the invitation folio and were sprinkled throughout the additional pieces.
