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!

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.

The vintage prints used on our modern Exeter suite are stunning – we love the classic black letterpress printing combined with the dramatic Dutch painting look of the patterns. 

Lennon foil stamped wedding invitations from Smock

Last but not least, show-stopper Lennon draws on some of our favorite trends: painterly patterns, modern script fonts, and the perfect amount of foil. The suite pairs tawny matte foil with black letterpress printing on the wedding invitation and throughout the suite, which also includes a chic photo save the date. 

These new designs will be available on our website soon – be sure to check out our invitation gallery for even more inspiration! 

Elegant foil stamped Halifax invitations

Our Halifax design took on a glamorous new look for Effie and Michael’s elegant summer wedding. We created a solid letterpress border around the invitation, then foil stamped a quatrefoil styled pattern on top. The reply card and reception card both mimicked the invitation, with the former picking up the letterpress border and the latter using the same foil border, making for a cohesive set across the board. We letterpress printed flat social notes featuring the names of the bride and groom in our Plaza calligraphy font by Sarah Hanna to round out the couple’s stationery suite.

Sophisticated rose gold wedding invitations

We’re still all about the ever-popular metallic trend, and can’t get enough of the gold, silver, and copper invitations we’ve been printing these days. One of our favorite shiny metallic looks though? Rose gold – which is why we love this take on our Spence design. Ariel and Joshua worked with Marissa Allie Designs to create their rose gold wedding invitations and reply cards. We printed subtle envelope liners with our vintage world map pattern in jute to match. We love the end result!

Sophisticated letterpress wedding invitations with custom hand calligraphy

Stephanie and William worked with Union Street Papery’s exclusive in-house calligrapher Mo Seder to create custom hand calligraphy for their sophisticated letterpress wedding invitations. Printed in a soft color palette of jute and sea mist inks on our ivory paper, these elegant wedding invitations helped set the tone for the couple’s recent wedding at the William Aiken House in downtown Charleston. Their invitation set included a petite website card to provide guests with additional information as well as classic reply cards. Both insert cards featured our Evans motif, which added a subtle hint of color.
