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.

Glamorous foil stamped 50th birthday invitations

A 50th birthday often requires a grand celebration and Dianna’s big day was no exception to this. Her glamorous foil stamped invitation suite gave her guests a sneak peek into what was to come using our Avignon design. With Dianna’s name stretching across the card in an elegant script font, foil flourishes swirling as if they were about to float off the page, it’s evident that she is somebody worth celebrating. When guests open their invitation, they’ll be surprised to find a sweet poodle motif shining back at them in Gold Matte foil. It was hard not to smile while working on this charming set with Uptowne Papers!

Romantic real wedding at the Silverleaf Country Club

Vibrant foil stamped Bat Mitzvah invitations

Our playful Confetti design set the stage for Lindsey’s celebration this past November. We worked with The Write Occasion to create these vibrant foil stamped Bat Mitzvah invitations. The design includes touches of a whimsical script font in gold matte foil combined with confetti accents in shades of purple and turquoise. We were thrilled to see our revel pattern printed in gold foil over a digitally printed flood of violet ink on the envelope liner as a fun way to wrap it all up. There’s nothing better than incorporating different yet complementary patterns into a suite to create a show-stopper like this!

Contemporary bridal shower invitations with bold foil brushstrokes

We worked with Danielle at Creative Touch to create these contemporary bridal shower invitations for Lindsay. This statement-maker was printed in tawny matte foil accented with modern brushstrokes. They decided to pair the invitation with a vibrant envelope liner to add a pop of color to this chic set. The shimmer background against this painterly foil pattern gives the liner that wow factor.  Look out Boca Raton — our Lennon design has never looked better thanks to this bold customization!
