Hot Pink + Robin’s Egg Roxbury Bat Mitzvah Invitations and social notes

Letterpress printed in a vibrant color pairing of hot pink and Robin’s egg blue, this customization of our Roxbury invitation is both festive and fun. We created reply cards, a party card, and a brunch card to accompany Ava’s Bat Mitzvah invitations, along with simple social notes to match. Each piece was sent out in style: the invitation and social note envelopes each featured colorful patterned envelope liners, and we even created a custom stamp design to match the 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.

Silver letterpress wedding invitations

We customized our Tallmossen design in a pretty color palette of silver and butter inks for Allison and John’s May wedding in Georgia last year. Their letterpress wedding invitations featured our Harrison calligraphy font and a playful patterned backing, while the envelope liners and edge painting added a bright pop of yellow to the set.

Splendid Letterpress Bridal Shower Invitations

Our good friend Joanne at Cambridge Street Papers in Chatham, New Jersey submitted these contemporary letterpress bridal shower invitations to us for printing – and we think these are a real treat!  We’re big softies when it comes to inkless blind deboss paired with the perfect ink color – and this set has it all!  The bodin motif was printed with inkless blind deboss for a chic, subtle look, and the edges of the invitation were painted in grass – a somewhat unexpected edge paint color, but a fabulous embellishment for this set. The bouts of color do not end there – the back of the invitation was offset printed in our sinclair pattern – and this flood of raspberry makes this set all the more sweet.

Romantic Letterpress Suite in Black + Mulberry Inks

If you’re looking for a traditional wedding invitation suite – then look no further!  We’re head over heels for this simple and sweet letterpressed set submitted to us by our friends at The Dandelion Patch in Reston, Virginia.  Letterpressed in black ink with gorgeous mulberry edge paint that acts as the perfect accent to this one color set – we can’t help but swoon!  After looking at photos of the The Ritz Carlton in McLean Virginia, where the fabulous wedding was held – we see what a fanciful and lavish venue the couple chose for their special day.  Of course we believe tossing our mulberry ink into the mix helps keep this set looking romantic, but this set also encourages the feeling of the winter months.  The three letter monogram on both the invitation and letterpress belly band adds another touch of elegance to this striking set!
