Die-cut letterpress wedding invitations with vintage print envelope liners

Lauren and Hermes personalized our Halifax invitation suite to set the tone for their October wedding at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.  The couple chose classic black letterpress ink on our white bamboo paper for their invitation suite, which mixed our square Belmont die-cut shape on the invitations with our Plymouth die-cut shape on the reply cards. We printed a petite website card to provide guests with information regarding accommodations and wedding day details, as well as a vintage anemone patterned envelope liner to add a splash of color.

New Prospect wedding invitations from Smock

The new Prospect suite features another new foil color: quartz! Darker than our rose gold foil, quartz has some seriously pink shine, and pairs perfectly with our jute ink. 

SC_A11A1614 Exeter wedding invitations from Smock

The vintage prints used on our modern Exeter suite are stunning – we love the classic black letterpress printing combined with the dramatic Dutch painting look of the patterns. 

Lennon foil stamped wedding invitations from Smock

Last but not least, show-stopper Lennon draws on some of our favorite trends: painterly patterns, modern script fonts, and the perfect amount of foil. The suite pairs tawny matte foil with black letterpress printing on the wedding invitation and throughout the suite, which also includes a chic photo save the date. 

These new designs will be available on our website soon – be sure to check out our invitation gallery for even more inspiration! 

Texas Longhorns inspired Bar Mitzvah invitations

We worked with Mieke at Simply Put to create these iconic Bar Mitzvah invitations for Jordan’s December celebration. The party was held in Atlanta at the College Football Hall of Fame, and the invitations helped set the tone with details inspired by Jordan’s favorite team — the Texas Longhorns. Thoughtful touches were included throughout this modern set — we loved the play-on-words used on some of the pieces, like the “kickoff” for the Friday evening services, and “hook ’em” for the Saturday night party card. Guests were asked to share their favorite college team on the reply card, a detail that was incorporated as a final touch at the actual event.
