Watercolor baby shower invitations with platinum foil accents

Thanks to the help of our friends at the Papery of Philadelphia, we were able to create these darling watercolor baby shower invitations for Megan. Our Vista design has never looked sweeter with the addition of little star motifs and a die-cut shape added to create a more youthful feel. The wording popped off the page in our Platinum Shine foil with a soft, subtle watercolor background behind it. With a nod to Doctor Seuss written across the top of the page and a map of the world as the envelope liner, it’s easy to see that everyone wishes a big, bright future for this little boy to come!

Modern watercolor rehearsal dinner invitations

Natasha and Jordan reimagined our Vista design with the help our friends at Needle in a Haystack. These watercolor rehearsal dinner invitations were a modern nod towards their South Carolina Aquarium venue. They opted for contemporary fonts that have never looked better while dressed up in our Silver Shine foil; all paired against a navy wash background. Our Dixon pattern as the envelope liner printed in Slate and Sky was the perfect compliment to this subtly aquatic set.

Gold foil stamped wedding invitations with seaside style

Take elegance, add a touch of nautical flair, and you’ll find Katherine and Matthew’s suite as the beautiful end result. You can never go wrong with classic gold foil stamped wedding invitations, but this couple decided to add their own twist by including a belly-band featuring an exquisite painting of Nantucket Island. The suite included other nods towards Nantucket like the motif of the island on the weekend celebration card and the nautical monogram on the invitation and thank you card. These kinds of accents made the suite harmonious in an incredibly tasteful way thanks to the help of Parchment Fine Papers. The watercolor envelope liner printed in Sea Mist was yet another subtle yet complimentary means of tying everything together.

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.

Timeless foil stamped wedding invitations with blind deboss border

Tiffany and Paul personalized our Wessox invitation suite to fit their traditional Nantucket wedding. These timeless foil stamped wedding invitations came together thanks to the help of Gus and Ruby. To give the invitation a little extra love, they decided to add a simple yet elegant blind deboss border to the design. The touches of a damask pattern in cloud letterpress added a luxurious finish to the welcome dinner and reply cards. The best part of it all? A different type of border was featured on each piece to create a cohesive overall look to the suite without being too matchy-matchy.

Custom venue-inspired wedding invitations and save the dates

It’s always fun to see the finishing touches that our clients make when it comes to their wedding invitations and save the dates. For Chelsea and JohnMichael’s May wedding at The Hempstead House, we worked with Jill from Jilly P Invitations & Gifts to create a set of custom, venue-inspired wedding invitations and save the dates. Jill shared some background with us on the inspiration for this suite – we’ll let her take it from here! 

Whenever I work with a customer, my goal is to always make their dreams become a reality. For this invitation, the bride wanted a drawing of the castle where the event was being held. So as to hint at the incredible night ahead, we first used a hand drawn image of the castle on the save the date. As we continued the process, we then included the castle design on the direction card in the pocketfold invitation, and to tie it all together, we designed a beautiful stamp incorporating the castle. In finalizing the entire package, we added a wax seal on the back of the envelope with the bride and groom’s initials as a perfect finishing touch for what will be the most magical night of their lives.

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.

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.
