Classic Fitzroy Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Simple and chic, our Fitzroy design is a perfect choice for an elegant, black tie wedding. Allison and Steven chose our classic black ink on ivory paper for their letterpress wedding invitations, which feature Plaza, one of our exclusive calligraphy fonts. Our Fitzroy pattern was used for the envelope liners and tied everything together in the most sophisticated way.

Classic Black on White Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Courtesy of Frances at Paper & Chocolate, this set focuses less on elaborate inks, but rather on showcasing the right design elements and embellishments. Opting for a single color sometimes frees up the budget to include the extra embellishment options like edge painting and envelope liners. Add to that some submitted artwork for a custom hang tag and you end up with a lovely invitation set.

ink: black | fonts: submitted artwork | paper: 2-ply white | printing: letterpress | edge painting in taupe | custom hang tag | liner: metallic camel | invite size: S7 | customization #: 15711 |

Olivia & Tim’s Real Wedding + Inside Weddings Magazine Feature!

We love seeing the real weddings of brides and grooms who ordered their wedding invitations from Smock, but it’s an extra-special treat when the wedding photos come from one of our beloved Smock dealers! Today’s real wedding spotlight features Olivia, daughter of Edie Frere (Smock dealer extraordinaire and owner of Landis Gifts & Stationery in Los Angeles!) and her gorgeous wedding at The Holly Farm in Carmel, California. Olivia ordered a stunning invitation suite featuring our modern Ossa design in black and lime inks with a sophisticated folio that tied everything together. Inside Weddings loved her invitation set so much that they chose to feature it in their Summer 2012 issue! Olivia filled us in on what went into planning their fabulous wedding and even gave a few tips for couples who are currently planning their own celebrations.

How did you choose your invitation design & ink color?
I am very fortunate that my Mom and her team at Landis Gifts and Stationery are so good at what they do! We told Mom that we liked letterpress and wanted something fun and unusual. She took it from there!

Can you share with us a bit about your wedding and your inspiration for the event?
We focused on throwing a really fun, casual party for our family and friends.  Our wedding would not have been possible without their support, so we wanted to make sure THEY had a really good time!

What advice do you have for couples currently planning a wedding?
Don’t stress. Planning a wedding can be so overwhelming. I’ll admit, I was a bit of a stress case myself, but in the end it all worked out the way we had envisioned. My husband’s advice: Eat meals together, family style. You can do a better job planning when you talk about it over meals.

What was your favorite moment?
The satisfaction of planning and enjoying the occasion so deeply. We feel we did something as a couple that was greater than what we could have done as 
individuals and that was incredibly meaningful to us both.

Favorite design element of your big day?
We loved the flags that Mom had made for our signature drink. They were a surprise and added a great touch to our reception!  We also loved our wedding cake decorated with a tandem bike.

What’s next for the newlyweds?
We are planning a honeymoon to South America, hopefully this fall! We love traveling and adventure, and are planning to spend a few weeks exploring Chile and  Argentina by bike and boat.

Congratulations and best wishes to Olivia and Tim from everyone here at Smock!
