Whimsical and trendy letterpress wedding invitations in yolk + pewter inks

Soft, subtle hues are what’s in right now!  Take a look at these trendsetter custom letterpress wedding invitations.  This whimsical set was submitted to us by our great friend, Kappy at Le Village Marche in Arlington, Virginia.  We love that our lyon border is featured on the left side of the invitation – adding to the modern feel of this suite.  Although this set is more on the contemporary side – choosing a softer color palette helps maintain a timeless and elegant feel for your wedding day.  We think these stylish invitations will surely delight their guests!

Floral Letterpress Save the Dates in Soft Hues

These letterpressed save the dates were submitted to us by our good friend, Aileen at Aileen Invitations in Miami Beach, Florida.  Our Rhon design looks truly sensational printed in our lavender and pewter inks.  There are certainly times when a softer color palette works best and this is definitely one of those times!  We print save the dates for all sorts of occasions and these save the dates happen to be for an engagement celebration.  We can’t help but feel that the lavender ink represents gracefulness and charm while the pewter ink helps keep this set looking refined.  Purple hues have always been connected to royalty which makes these save the dates all the more classic.  The couple chose our payette pattern in lavender for both the offset back patterning and envelope liner – which ties this whole set together nicely.
