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 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.

Shimmering pearl foil stamped wedding invitations

Jade and Matthew combined two of our designs to create their elegant wedding invitations. Their invitations and combination reply + reception cards feature our Galena design, with design accents highlighted in subtle pearl shine foil. We created a Gosford stlye invitation sleeve featuring the names of the bride and groom inside of a simple cartouche and surrounded  by the pattern from our Avella design. Metallic glass envelope liners added a final hint of shimmer to this timeless set.
