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.

Foil stamped Bar Mitzvah invitations from a sports lover’s dream

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. We can’t think of a better way to add a fun yet memorable twist to a party card! 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!

Romantic garden inspired custom wedding invitations

These elegant custom wedding invitations feature a unique combination of both blind embossed and blind debossed florals, making for a beautifully textured design. Inside the invitation envelopes, colorful florals and greenery were bursting right off the envelope liners, which featured lovely pastels in shades of blues, greens, and purples. Letterpress printing in wisteria ink was used for the text throughout the suite, accented by a sweet script font to highlight names and key details.

Modern textural letterpress wedding invitations

Marni and Ali worked with Desiree at Heirloom Paper  to create a cool take on our Flynn design for their letterpress wedding invitations. They personalized the design by adding our quilt pattern in blind deboss to the invitations, creating a textural element that was repeated throughout the suite. Our Clermont calligraphy font was used to highlight key elements on the invitations and insert cards, like the names of the bride and groom, RSVP card details, and events on their “Friday Festivities” card. Our quilt pattern was also used on their envelope liners, infusing a small touch of color to this modern set.

Elegant Finley Bat Mitzvah Invitations with yellow accents

We worked with Jackie at Orrganics to customize our Finley Bat Mitzvah invitations for Elisabeth’s November celebration. The invitations featured gold matte foil stamping and yolk letterpress ink on our ultra thick 3-ply bamboo paper, with blind debossed floral accents adding a subtle design element. The invitations were corner rounded and edge painted in yolk ink, which coordinated with the pop of yellow on the invitations as well as the patterned envelope liners.

Design Contest Winner: Sophisticated & Sweet Bat Mitzvah Invitations

We have the lovely Jenny from Jenny’s Paper, Ink! to thank for these incredible letterpress Bat Mitzvah invitations that we recently had the pleasure of printing. The invitations have a sweet, youthful look and feature fun fonts and bold colors. Jenny said the inspiration for these Bat Mitzvah invitations began with a custom sleeve – Sari fell in love with the idea of keeping the entire invitation set together without using a typical folio or bellyband. From there, they created a logo that could be used throughout the event by pairing our Louise font with our Dawson cartouche. Next came the patterns and colors — Sari’s favorite color is blue, so robin’s egg was a perfect choice, and adding black as a second ink color gave the invitation a bold look. The Champlain pattern was used in different ways throughout the entire set, and complemented the playful fonts and bold ink combination beautifully.  The finished product was amazing and set the tone for a fabulous weekend with family and friends. Congratulations and thank you to Jenny for sending us such a stunning invitation set!
