Monogrammed engagement party invitations

For Maura and Charlie’s monogrammed engagement party invitations, we went with a monochromatic look, letterpress printing the invitations in pewter ink and using our white rose vintage print pattern for the coordinating envelope liners. We worked with Marissa Allie Designs to create the set, which was inspired by our Finley Bat Mitzvah suite, and we loved seeing the design reimagined for an engagement party!

Minimalist Floral Bat Mitzvah Invitations

We created a minimalist floral look for Eleanor’s Bat Mitzvah invitations by customizing our Ossa design in sea mist and midnight letterpress inks. The square invitation featured a simple border and clean, sophisticated fonts, while the reply card and reception card each had a similar vibe and featured coordinating vine-like motifs. Sea mist envelope liners in our Phelps pattern tied the set together.

Rose Gold Birth Announcements

We can’t get enough of these sweet rose gold birth announcements! We digitally printed photos of new baby Brooke with her big brother Wyatt on our white bamboo paper, then printed the announcement details in rose gold foil on both sides. The whimsical font adds a playful, girly touch, and the Winnie the Pooh quote on the back adds the sweetest sentiment: “it’s so much more friendly with two!”

Aquarium Inspired Letterpress Wedding Invitation Suite

We created a full suite for Michael and Craig’s October wedding at the New England Aquarium using different motifs from our custom library. Their custom invitations paired our pewter and ocean inks together on white bamboo paper, with our coral motif and Harrison calligraphy font adding special touches. The other cards in the suite included our sea turtle, fish, and penguin motifs, which gave subtle nods to the venue.

Old-world rehearsal dinner invitations

A stately venue calls for a stately invitation! For Melissa and Geoffrey’s rehearsal dinner at The Colonnade Inn — an elegant estate that dates back to the 1870’s — we created a custom version of our Haynes rehearsal dinner invitations. A vintage world map pattern was used for the envelope liners, which accentuated the old-world charm, while hints of tawny matte foil and classic fonts combined for a modern yet timeless look.

Custom hazel wedding invitations

We worked with Kara at Nest Paper Studio to create these custom wedding invitations for a November celebration at the Annesdale Mansion in Memphis, Tennessee. In order to create a thick, 2-ply piece, we digitally printed both pieces of the invitation in a flood of hazel ink, then duplexed the two pieces together. The invitations feature our popular tawny matte foil stamping for both the text and the edge treatment, adding a sophisticated metallic touch. A hazel watercolor envelope liner tied the entire set together, which set the tone for this elegant fall affair.

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.

Custom holiday cocktail party invitations

Inspired by our new Hillman party invitations, these festive cocktail party invitations feature coral letterpress printing on our white bamboo paper.

Modern gray + gold foil holiday cards

We worked with No Regrets to create the Margo family’s Christmas card, which was a sweet and simple take on our Lincoln design. The family chose a nontraditional color combination of gold, gray and pink for their cards, with modern fonts completing the look.

Custom letterpress Christmas party invitations + save the dates

We’ve been busy printing up custom holiday cards over the past few months, so with Christmas just around the corner we thought we’d share a few! We worked with our friends at Needle in a Haystack to create these custom letterpress Christmas party invitations and save the dates. Inspired by our Hamilton design, the invitations were printed on our ultra-thick 3-ply paper and edge painted in deep red for a festive touch.
