Modern rose gold foil stamped engagement invitations

We can never get enough of patterns that have something to say. Kelly and Ben put their own flair on our Flynn design to announce their engagement to their friends and family this part October. These modern rose gold foil stamped engagement invitations are truly eye catching with bold geometric patterns framing the page. A corresponding foil envelope liner pushed the envelope even further with a varying pattern that still complimented the invitation design effortlessly. This show-stopper couldn’t have come together without the help of our friends at Events and we can hardly wait to see what their wedding invitation suite will look like to come!

Pretty purple and blue letterpress Bat Mitzvah invitations

We always love seeing what kind of Rainier customizations our clients will dream up next. These pretty purple and blue letterpress Bat Mitzvah invitations are a perfect example of a harmonious color combination. Pansy, Gossamer, and Azure all came together in different ways throughout this suite, yet still tied back to the original invitation color palette. The Rainier pattern was another consistent element used in different ways that created visual interest and gave each card a sense of individuality. To give the set an extra dose of playfulness, an envelope liner was added to tie all the colors and pattern together effortlessly.

Playful watercolor wedding invitations printed in gold foil

Justine and Jones took our Bloomsbury design and made it into something completely their own for their October affair. These playful watercolor wedding invitations were printed in our Gold Matte foil with dreamy florals added in a palette of pinks as the backdrop. To include a little bit of whimsy, foil stamped polka dots were incorporated throughout the suite. The rehearsal dinner set was kept safe and sound in a corresponding sleeve to give the set a little extra dose of individuality. Guests will be pleasantly surprised to find this same theme carried onto the welcome tags and thank you set as well. This spirited set wouldn’t have been possible without the help of No Regrets- OK and we have no doubt the wedding of Justine and Jones came together just as beautifully as their suite.

Rose gold wedding invitations for a tropical affair

Elizabeth and John personalized our Prospect invitation suite to set the stage for their wedding at The Ritz-Carlton in Aruba. These rose gold wedding invitations were created thanks to the help of our friends at Fete Collection. The breezy script font combined with the more formal serif font gave the invitation a relaxed yet luxurious aesthetic. The additional pieces all printed in Jute letterpress mimicked the color of the sand guests will surely enjoy during their stay in Aruba. A rose gold envelope liner printed in our pearl pattern was a playful addition to the set. We can already hear the sound of the ocean’s waves and feel the sand between our toes after creating this wedding suite!

Foil stamped Bar Mitzvah invitations with ombre background

Our friend Desiree Jacobs at Heirloom Paper Company took our Amira design and put a fresh spin on it when designing these foil stamped Bar Mitzvah invitations for Jonathan. Instead of keeping the orientation vertical, they decided to hold the card horizontally, creating a unique take on the original design. The background was printed in Peacock, which was a perfect compliment to the Tawny Matte foil wording over top. The vibrant Peacock color was then carried onto the reply card and to the pattern on the envelope liner that tied everything together beautifully. A memorable monogram was also formed from the Hello Beautiful script which added a touch of whimsy to this charming set.

Sweetly sophisticated bronze foil wedding invitations

Sarah and Brett’s wedding was held at The Villa at Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez, California. These bronze foil wedding invitations were the perfect first impression of what their big day would hold that coming June. With the bride and groom’s name first and foremost on the page dressed in a modern, free-flowing font, it’s easy to see that this wedding will be a sweet yet sophisticated affair. When their guests turn over the invitation, they will find a botanical pattern repeated in bronze shine adding a subtle wow factor. To give the suite a pop of color, our sage ink added another level of appeal to the reply and welcome party cards. The envelope liner was also printed in sage carrying a complementary leaf pattern as the finishing touch.

Scholarly letterpress graduation invitations

To announce the graduation of J. Clayton Kennedy, these letterpress graduation invitations were sent to set the stage for a celebration to come. With Cornell as his alma mater, it only made sense that cardinal was chosen as the primary letterpress ink color within the design. Not only was this a celebration for J. Clayton, but it was also a way to honor the lives of both Barbara and Keith Kennedy who graduated from Cornell as well. Our Ivy League font emphasized this academic anniversary along with the mascot for an extra touch of school pride. The choice to keep the envelope liner simple in our Seneca pattern gave the suite an overall clean and polished aesthetic. We couldn’t have been happier to work on this set with our friends at the Preppy Pink Pony.

Classic letterpress wedding invitations featuring dreamy watercolor florals

There is something to be said for the simplicity of a classic letterpress wedding invitation. That kind of beauty could never be overdone, but we also love when timeless elegance is transformed through the marriage of modern day and old world printing techniques. We were thrilled to work with AGI Events to create these invitations for Ross and Rebeccas’s wedding at the Tribeca Rooftop in New York City. The inclusion of the dreamy watercolor florals added a completely new level of interest to a traditional layout. Using black letterpress as the ink color for the wording was a perfect neutral against the colorful palette of the florals framing the page. To top it all off, an envelope liner with a sweet saying tied everything together to complete this suite.
