Eggplant + Spring Inks on our Engadine Design

Our Engadine design looks absolutely regal letterpressed in our eggplant and spring inks. Submitted to us by our friends at Christie in Manhattan Beach, California, we were especially thrilled to see these come off press because this set is pure perfection. The offset back pattern on the invitation matches the envelope lining perfectly – helping to maintain the modern feel of this suite.

The letterpress eggplant and lavender inks make this an elegant suite that they will remember for the rest of their lives. This Chasseral design was letterpress printed on ivory bamboo 2-ply paper. Its wrapped up neatly in a Smock pocketfold to give that new age look to a classic design.

Vintage Inspired Letterpress Wedding Invitations

This vintage inspired customization of our Chasseral design was submitted to us by our great friends at LS Amster Company in Scarsdale, New York.  We think our eggplant and saffron inks were the perfect pairing for an autumn wedding.  The rich colors of the season are seen throughout- so much that it’s easy to see the leaves changing color! The iznik pattern envelope lining in saffron gives off the perfect amount of charm!  Complete with direction cards printed on both front and back- these cards tell guests everything they need to know about getting to the celebration!  The couple also chose letterpress thank you cards and we cannot think of a better way to show all of your guests your gratitude for being such an important part of your special day.  Vintage inspired + autumn color palette = ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING!

Brought to us by Wordshop in Denver, Colorado, this customization makes the most of a unique layout where the branch design is shifted up and the text is rearranged to create a striking visual effect. It’s decidedly modern, but when paired with the richness of the tradition of letterpress, this is a look we can see becoming a new classic.

Custom Haddington Save the Date

If a fabulous letterpress thank you card is the perfect way to thank guests for celebrating with you, than undeniably the perfect way to kick off the festivities is with a show-stopping letterpress save the date. We love this recent Haddington save the date, printed for a fall wedding in Philly. Dreamed up by our friends at Judy Paulen Designs, featuring our Smock Spencerian calligraphy font in eggplant ink, its beauty lies in its elegant simplicity. It’s perfectly sweet and charming, printed on our smaller reply card size, making it both more affordable and more eco-friendly as it uses less paper. The motif is from our rousseau pattern, making it a truly custom design that we adore.
