Our wonderful friend Cheryl at Paper Studio in Ontario, Canada submitted this remarkable custom invitation suite to us for printing. It’s easy to get lost in the splendor of this simplistic set because it has the coolest customizations!

The gold and taupe inks are perfect for a wedding celebration in the middle of the any season! We also printed what we think are the most adorable and whimsical double sided information cards we’ve seen in quite some time.

We’re overjoyed to share these recently printed Lashar wedding invitations submitted to us by our friend, Linda at Pen & Paper in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. What better color combination is there than mulberry and gold for a wedding celebration in December? When guests open up the pocketfold they will see the most incredible wash of mulberry and we think this is where the set is most romantic. Around here we LOVE December weddings and the colors that come with the holiday season.

You just might say we have a soft side for pastel ink colors letterpressed on our thick 2-ply bamboo paper-and you would be right. Take a look at these elegant Engadine invitations submitted to us by our good friends at Salutations in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Softer hues have a way of looking peaceful and calm, without being over the top. The highlight is of course the gorgeous folio offset printed on the interior and exterior in the coolest colors to keep things modern. There is a real warmth seen throughout this suite and we adore it!

What a wonderful suite we received from our friends at Landis Gifts & Stationery. This Ossa design was customized beautifully on our white bamboo paper, and letterpressed in Lime and Black inks. The invitation and reply card were edge painted in Orchid. The invitation is adhered to an awesome folio, offset printed in our Ashwell pattern in Black on the outside and in our Sherbrooke pattern in Lime on the inside. The final touch of brilliance is the envelope liner, offset printed in our Sherbrooke pattern in Lime to match. This one was a very personal suite as it was printed for the store owner’s daughter. We are so happy to be able to be included in such a special day.

This is the first order sent to us from The Wedding Company in Hong Kong and we already can’t wait to see what’s coming next! Michele uses a combination of whisper and pearl inks to give a wonderful 2-color accent to the invitation text of this Dawson-inspired design.

We are very happy to showcase our newest friends, particularly when this is the quality of the invitations they come up with. Well done Wedding Company!
