Our good friend, Shelby at Seaside Papery in Coronado, California submitted this lovely Burstell letterpress wedding suite for printing. Talk about being pretty in pink with the most beautiful feminine touches! We are totally smitten with the perfect pocketfold – offset printed on both the interior and exterior. The taupe ink is such a soft, neutral tone- and when you pair this with a light shade of pink this set looks all the more delicate and truly picturesque.

Trissa Garvis is one of our Smock Everyday Reps who sent us her first custom letterpress order. This was so amazing, and we hope she sends some more! Bar and Bat Mitzvah cards are known for their bright colors and elaborate designs, and this letterpress invitation set certainly delivers on that reputation. With the multiple fonts and custom artwork, these invitations look very busy, but in exactly the right way. Sometimes it’s hard to fit a lot of design in without overwhelming the invitation, but this set just looks exciting! Excellent work, Trissa!

You probably already know that here at Smock, printing gorgeous letterpress invitations makes us absolutely giddy. With that said, the opportunity to print the letterpress invitations, escort cards and menus for the recent Modern Bride Trendsetters Awards Dinner was a sincere honor and so much fun! Printing beautiful things is what makes us excited about what we do everyday, but being able to print the invitations for such a fabulous event, honoring amazing wedding professionals we truly admire, was especially exciting.
The letterpress invitation to kick off the event was our Aberdeen design in grass and black inks paired with an envelope liner in our sottern pattern in a custom hot pink ink. Ensuring no detail was forgotten, the invitations were also corner rounded and edge painted in grass ink to make for a truly show-stopping invitation. How exciting would it be to get something this fun in the mail?
The letterpress menus and letterpress escort cards were also our Aberdeen design, printed in black and the same custom hot pink color. They were edge painted in gold and all of the pieces, including the invitation, featured pattern backing in our oesa pattern. We loved working with the editors of Modern Bride to create these pieces and love the final look – perfectly sophisticated, cheerful and undeniably celebratory.
