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!

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.

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.

Sea glass inspired Keira wedding invitations

A beautiful array of soft blues and greens were featured together on this sea glass inspired version of our Keira invitation. Sarah and Robert chose letterpress printing in azure ink for the main text on their invitations, which added texture to the colorful, digitally printed piece. We duplexed the invitation and added azure edge paint to make the piece more substantial. Reply cards and event cards were printed to match, and a custom watercolor envelope liner added an extra layer of color to this unique invitation set.
