Classic letterpress wedding invitations featuring dreamy watercolor florals

There is something to be said for the simplicity of a classic letterpress wedding invitation. That kind of beauty could never be overdone, but we also love when timeless elegance is transformed through the marriage of modern day and old world printing techniques. We were thrilled to work with AGI Events to create these invitations for Ross and Rebeccas’s wedding at the Tribeca Rooftop in New York City. The inclusion of the dreamy watercolor florals added a completely new level of interest to a traditional layout. Using black letterpress as the ink color for the wording was a perfect neutral against the colorful palette of the florals framing the page. To top it all off, an envelope liner with a sweet saying tied everything together to complete this suite.

Glamorous foil stamped 50th birthday invitations

A 50th birthday often requires a grand celebration and Dianna’s big day was no exception to this. Her glamorous foil stamped invitation suite gave her guests a sneak peek into what was to come using our Avignon design. With Dianna’s name stretching across the card in an elegant script font, foil flourishes swirling as if they were about to float off the page, it’s evident that she is somebody worth celebrating. When guests open their invitation, they’ll be surprised to find a sweet poodle motif shining back at them in Gold Matte foil. It was hard not to smile while working on this charming set with Uptowne Papers!

Timeless foil stamped wedding invitations with blind deboss border

Tiffany and Paul personalized our Wessox invitation suite to fit their traditional Nantucket wedding. These timeless foil stamped wedding invitations came together thanks to the help of Gus and Ruby. To give the invitation a little extra love, they decided to add a simple yet elegant blind deboss border to the design. The touches of a damask pattern in cloud letterpress added a luxurious finish to the welcome dinner and reply cards. The best part of it all? A different type of border was featured on each piece to create a cohesive overall look to the suite without being too matchy-matchy.

Our friends at Simply Put decided to combine copper shine and teal shine in a refreshing way to create these unique foil stamped Bar Mitzvah invitations. You can also see a subtle blind deboss background added for a touch of texture to this colorful card. The suite included two versions of the reply card and an eye-catching party card with football shaped typography dressed up in copper chine foil.

You can easily tell by looking at the suite that Max is a true sports lover and we would agree that his invitation suite definitely has game!

Vibrant foil stamped Bat Mitzvah invitations

Our playful Confetti design set the stage for Lindsey’s celebration this past November. We worked with The Write Occasion to create these vibrant foil stamped Bat Mitzvah invitations. The design includes touches of a whimsical script font in gold matte foil combined with confetti accents in shades of purple and turquoise. We were thrilled to see our revel pattern printed in gold foil over a digitally printed flood of violet ink on the envelope liner as a fun way to wrap it all up. There’s nothing better than incorporating different yet complementary patterns into a suite to create a show-stopper like this!

Romantic watercolor wedding invitations with rose gold envelope liner

Sarah and Colby customized our Barnesly design for their wedding at the Silverleaf Country Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. These romantic watercolor wedding invitations showcase our rose gold foil in a charming way against a blush background. To keep the invitation and various insert cards safe and sound, an eye-catching monogrammed sleeve with foil accents was added to the mix. A rose gold envelope liner in our classic amble pattern tied everything together as the finishing touch to this sweet suite.

We worked with Danielle at Creative Touch to create these contemporary bridal shower invitations for Lindsay. This statement-maker was printed in tawny matte foil accented with modern brushstrokes.

Custom venue-inspired wedding invitations and save the dates

It’s always fun to see the finishing touches that our clients make when it comes to their wedding invitations and save the dates. For Chelsea and JohnMichael’s May wedding at The Hempstead House, we worked with Jill from Jilly P Invitations & Gifts to create a set of custom, venue-inspired wedding invitations and save the dates. Jill shared some background with us on the inspiration for this suite – we’ll let her take it from here! 

Whenever I work with a customer, my goal is to always make their dreams become a reality. For this invitation, the bride wanted a drawing of the castle where the event was being held. So as to hint at the incredible night ahead, we first used a hand drawn image of the castle on the save the date. As we continued the process, we then included the castle design on the direction card in the pocketfold invitation, and to tie it all together, we designed a beautiful stamp incorporating the castle. In finalizing the entire package, we added a wax seal on the back of the envelope with the bride and groom’s initials as a perfect finishing touch for what will be the most magical night of their lives.

Black and Gold Art Deco Wedding Invitations

Anna and Peter customized our Emory design for their LA wedding at the Cicada Club – an art deco venue with vintage 1920’s flair. They chose a classic color palette of black letterpress with gold matte foil stamped accents for their invitations and incorporated an art deco patterned border on their reply cards to keep with the theme. They complemented the set with a striped patterned envelope liner, printed in black ink on metallic gold leaf paper for a subtle yet glamorous finishing touch.

Grommeted paper fan wedding programs

We created cute paper fan wedding programs for Allison and Nick’s laid-back summer wedding in Lake Tahoe last summer. Letterpress printed in desert ink with rose gold foil stamped accents, the programs feature four panels that were secured together with a gold grommet. Each panel included all of the essential details for their big day, from the date and location to the wedding party and the (somewhat cheeky) order of the ceremony. The final panel of the program talked about Allison’s “something borrowed” – her great great great grandmother’s wedding veil and a family heirloom that had been worn by several generations of women in the family. Such a sweet detail!
