Custom Chablais Letterpress + Foil Stamped Folio Wedding Invitations

We worked with The Social Page to create these sleek custom wedding invitations for Amanda and Christopher’s country club celebration. The couple customized our Chablais invitation with silver matte foil and black ink, and used our Stella calligraphy font to emphasize key text throughout the suite. A custom map was included on the directions card to help guests find their way, and a chevron patterned envelope liner added a chic finishing touch!

Seersucker inspired letterpress wedding invitations

We worked with Buchanan Ink to create this preppy take on our Emory invitation, which features our Smock Spencerian calligraphy font and gold matte foil stamping. Navy stripes in our Sherbrooke pattern help transform this deco design into a more traditional  invitation — perfect for a Southern plantation wedding.

Setting the bar for Letterpress printing

If you want to know the extent of letterpress potential, just ask Ailbhe at Pretty as a Picture. Not only do our dear friends from Ireland consistently send us amazing work, but this set was for Ailbhe’s own wedding! With a hand-drawn map and coat of arms that Ailbhe created herself along with hand calligraphy by Sarah Hanna, plus the combination of letterpress and offset printing with foil stamping, this will forever be one of our all-time favorite invitations. Congrats again, Ailbhe!

Emerald Letterpress and Gold Foil

Courtesy of Gentry from Paper on the Avenue, a simple spin is put on the Tatra design, trading a second gold foil for emerald ink.  The result speaks for itself!  We love this customization almost as much as we love working with Gentry.  It’s great to see a perfect pairing of letterpress and foil as one tends to accentuate the other.

Using Emerald and Gold Shine foil the Tatra design looks splendid.
