We worked with Sweet Paper to create these letterpress save the date booklets for Allie and David based on our Prescott design. They decided to use our Pool letterpress ink color for their wording which mimicked the serene ocean color in the photo chosen for the front page of their grommeted piece. The third page of the booklet even contains a list of accommodations to ensure that their guests book ahead of time to avoid booking during busy season in Charlottesville. We have no doubt Allie and David’s wedding will come together just as sweetly as their save the date!

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.

Alexis and David chose to customize our Barnesly wedding invitations for their July celebration at the Ritz-Carlton in Aruba. Petite save the date cards were printed in gold matte foil and slipped inside luggage tags to help set the tone for their destination wedding. For the main invitation, we switched things up by changing the watercolor artwork to a pale shade of lavender, and swapped the script font from the original design with a more formal script. Metallic glass envelope liners added a subtle touch of shimmer to these elegant wedding invitations.

We introduced our newest wedding album at the National Stationery Show earlier this month, and we can’t wait for you to see the new designs! The album features 12 wedding invitation suites with styles ranging from modern to vintage to traditional. New fonts, patterns, and colors can be found throughout the new suites, which will be available in stores this summer. Take a look at some of our new favorites!
Above: our new Linden suite features bronze shine foil stamping on our white bamboo paper and a leafy vintage print pattern. The foil stamped menus are printed on our 100% recycled gray paper and complement the suite beautifully!
The new Prospect suite features another new foil color: quartz! Darker than our rose gold foil, quartz has some seriously pink shine, and pairs perfectly with our jute ink.
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.
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!
