The perfect pairing of our azalea and ocean inks really make this letterpressed Aneto invitation set stand out – in a good way! We have our friends at Arabesque in Naples, Florida to thank for sending along such a colorful suite – with a happy go lucky feeling that has us all smiling. We just love the contemporary fonts and a floral motif that provides the most beautiful accented border. And then there’s the reply postcards that help maintain the modern vibe.

This trendy text based offset invitation suite was submitted to us by our wonderful friend, Liz at Gus & Ruby Letterpress in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We were told the couple was looking for a type driven suite with a playful type – and we think this invitation encompasses that vision perfectly. We’re loving the cool hues and the simplicity of this creative suite. Our taupe and apricot inks simply blend so beautifully on our ivory bamboo paper. When picturing your own wedding invitation – you should toss in a bit of your own creativity to match back to your wedding venue or personalities.
