Monogrammed letterpress birth announcements

We worked with Adrienne at Ipanema Press to create these monogrammed letterpress birth announcements to mark Ashton’s arrival. We letterpress printed the petite S-5 cards in vine ink on our thick, 2-ply white bamboo paper. Adrienne created an adorable patterned envelope liner featuring custom-illustrated airplanes and Ashton’s initials in shades of green and pale blue. Such a sweet way to spread the news!

Romantic bronze shine foil wedding invitations

Natalie and Daniel rang in the new year as newlyweds at the beautiful Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara, California. We had the pleasure of working with Events to create Natalie and Daniel’s romantic bronze shine foil wedding invitations. The couple personalized our Linden suite with a pretty vintage print and bronze shine foil for their New Year’s Eve wedding. We created an elegant foil stamped wedding invitation and a reply card (complete with cute motifs) for the main components of their suite, while their digitally printed and foil stamped website cards mimicked the romantic, vintage hydrangea pattern on their envelope liners.

Custom tri-fold holiday photo cards with gold foil

We worked with our friends at Union Street Papery to create these darling tri-fold holiday cards for the Spangler family. The tri-fold card features digital printing on both the front and the back, and each panel highlights a different photograph. Gold matte foil was included to make the initial greeting stand out, and we created custom envelope liners featuring the reindeer pattern from our Merry gift wrap to add some extra holiday cheer.

Custom holiday photo cards with red shine foil

We love creating custom holiday cards and seeing all of the festive patterns and motifs come through the shop, but we’re always especially honored to print holiday cards for our Smock dealers. Last year we worked with Sarah Gallante, owner of Pom Paperie in Valencia, California, to create her family’s custom holiday cards. The front of the card featured a group photo of Sarah, her husband, her children, and of course their family dog Chibi in front of the most picturesque mountain scene. The cards also featured a “be merry” message with the year and family name in red shine foil on the front, while the backside of the card showcased individual portraits and an update on each family member. Confetti patterned envelope liners in various shades of red, blue, and gray tied all of the colors from the digitally printed cards together and made for a fun finish!

Light lavender Barnesly wedding invitations

Alexis and David chose to customize our Barnesly wedding invitations for their July celebration at the Ritz-Carlton in Aruba. Petite save the date cards were printed in gold matte foil and slipped inside luggage tags to help set the tone for their destination wedding. For the main invitation, we switched things up by changing the watercolor artwork to a pale shade of lavender, and swapped the script font from the original design with a more formal script. Metallic glass envelope liners added a subtle touch of shimmer to these elegant wedding invitations.

We worked with Toni at The Write Image to create these magical Bat Mitzvah invitations for Sophia. The set featured a range of rich. watercolor jewel tones in rich shades of deep purple, emerald, and royal blue. Gold matte and indigo shine foil stamping added a luxurious shine to the invitation suite, which included flat social notes, transportation cards, reply cards and party cards. Embellishments like coordinating custom envelope liners and indigo shine foil edging were added to complete the look.

Holiday photo cards with Santa Claus envelope liners

Our friends at  The Inviting Place helped the Vawter family create these chic custom holiday photo cards using different elements from our design library. A black and white family photograph on the front of the card was accented by red foil stamped design motifs from our Merci Holiday card, while the reverse side of the card pairs a letterpress printed border with a second digitally printed photograph. Our vintage Santa Claus print was used to create a festive envelope liner to finish off the cards.

Romantic garden inspired custom wedding invitations

These elegant custom wedding invitations feature a unique combination of both blind embossed and blind debossed florals, making for a beautifully textured design. Inside the invitation envelopes, colorful florals and greenery were bursting right off the envelope liners, which featured lovely pastels in shades of blues, greens, and purples. Letterpress printing in wisteria ink was used for the text throughout the suite, accented by a sweet script font to highlight names and key details.

Painterly rose gold birth announcements

We worked with our friends at Fat Cat Paperie to create Clio’s painterly rose gold birth announcements and coordinating envelope liners. Her parents drew inspiration from our Ellory invitation suite to create the cards, which paired a digitally printed watercolor wash with our rose gold foil. What a sweet way to welcome a new baby!

Navy + gold pineapple wedding invitations

Danielle and Jeffrey worked with our friends at Lion in the Sun to create chic navy and gold pineapple wedding invitations for their Montego Bay celebration in May. We letterpress printed their invitations in navy ink, and highlighted their names with gold matte foil. Bold navy striped envelope liners reflected the seaside locale, while the gold pineapple motif gave a nod to the Round Hill Resort logo. We created a navy combination card that invited guests to both the welcome dinner and the farewell brunch, which resulted in a beautiful layered effect when the invitations were assembled and wrapped with their bellybands.
