Grommeted paper fan wedding programs

We created cute paper fan wedding programs for Allison and Nick’s laid-back summer wedding in Lake Tahoe last summer. Letterpress printed in desert ink with rose gold foil stamped accents, the programs feature four panels that were secured together with a gold grommet. Each panel included all of the essential details for their big day, from the date and location to the wedding party and the (somewhat cheeky) order of the ceremony. The final panel of the program talked about Allison’s “something borrowed” – her great great great grandmother’s wedding veil and a family heirloom that had been worn by several generations of women in the family. Such a sweet detail!

Sophisticated springtime rehearsal dinner invitations

For their springtime rehearsal dinner at the University Club of Memphis, Carolyn and Keithley customized our Chapman design with elegant laurels from our motif library. The invitations were printed in a sophisticated color palette of sage and dove inks on our ivory paper, and paired with a sage green watercolor envelope liner. Our Belmont die-cut shape added a sleek finish to this elegant invitation set!

Elegant gold calligraphy wedding invitations with foil envelope liners

We worked with the team at Houston Invitation Service to create Katherine and Stewart’s elegant gold calligraphy wedding invitations for their March celebration. The entire suite — invitations, die-cut reception cards, and reply cards — was printed in gold matte foil, along with the patterned backing on the reception cards and inner envelope liners. All of the design elements combined for a perfectly polished look for this black tie wedding at The Hobby Center in Houston!

Painterly birthday party invitations

We worked with Press Paperie to create these custom birthday party invitations. Inspired by an adorable Kate Spade dress, these painterly invitations were created for Drue’s fourth birthday party – which was, of course, a paint party! We created custom envelope liners for the thank you notes to match the invitations and the cute die-cut thank you tags that were created for favors also included the custom pattern.

Elegant foil stamped Halifax invitations

Our Halifax design took on a glamorous new look for Effie and Michael’s elegant summer wedding. We created a solid letterpress border around the invitation, then foil stamped a quatrefoil styled pattern on top. The reply card and reception card both mimicked the invitation, with the former picking up the letterpress border and the latter using the same foil border, making for a cohesive set across the board. We letterpress printed flat social notes featuring the names of the bride and groom in our Plaza calligraphy font by Sarah Hanna to round out the couple’s stationery suite.

Vintage Rose Letterpress Graduation Party Invitations

In honor of Samantha’s graduation from the University of Pennsylvania, her parents held a celebration at the Physick House in Philadelphia. They customized our Ashbourne design for the occasion, paying homage to the graduate’s middle name with our pink vintage rose pattern serving as a subtle background. In addition to the letterpress graduation party invitations, we also printed a sophisticated set of social stationery — and both pieces included solid envelope liners in the prettiest shade of pale pink to match.

Silver foil stamped 90th birthday party invitations

A 90th birthday celebration calls for an extra special invitation, don’t you think? We worked with Papyrus to create these stunning silver foil stamped invitations and save the dates for Nan’s 90th. The cards featured our Avella design and were printed on our white, 2-ply bamboo paper, then die-cut using our Plymouth shape. Metallic silver edge painted added an extra touch of glamour to these milestone invitations.

We worked with Fresh Ink to create these chic letterpress engagement party invitations for Carter and Wilson. Their die-cut invitations featured our Halifax invitation design in midnight ink, and our Plaza calligraphy font added a sophisticated touch.
