Minty fresh gold foil stamped wedding invitations

Kristyn and Eric customized our Palmes design for their September wedding in Virginia. We letterpress printed their wedding invitations in fresh mint ink, and added gold matte foil for a touch of shine. The couple used our Marav pattern around the border of the invitation, with the reverse pattern taking center stage on the reply card and details card. Solid mint envelope liners gave the set a polished finish.

Romantic custom letterpress wedding invitations + save the dates

We worked with Raegan at Papel New York to create Carrie & Dan’s custom letterpress wedding invitations and save the dates.  We letterpress printed their 3-color invitations, which featured beautiful, hand-drawn roses and flourishes, while the reply cards included a sweet illustration of their precious pup. The set also included a hand-illustrated map, complete with custom artwork depicting Nashville and key locations like hotels and the venue – the Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art

Foodie inspired letterpress wedding invitations + save the dates

Talia and James put a unique spin on our rustic Cimarron invitation suite for their September wedding. The couple replaced the arrows in the Cimarron monogram with a crossed fork and knife, and their save the dates incorporated this motif along with fruits and veggies like pumpkins, cherries, apples and pears. We letterpress printed their save the dates and wedding invitations in lime ink, then edge painted the set with yolk ink. This fun invitation set was finished off with cheery yolk envelope liners in our Sherbrooke pattern.

Silver letterpress wedding invitations

We customized our Tallmossen design in a pretty color palette of silver and butter inks for Allison and John’s May wedding in Georgia last year. Their letterpress wedding invitations featured our Harrison calligraphy font and a playful patterned backing, while the envelope liners and edge painting added a bright pop of yellow to the set.

Inspired by our Haddington design, Sierra and David’s letterpress save the date postcards help set the tone for their September wedding in California. Their letterpress wedding invitations were printed in black ink to match, with envelope liners in our pink vintage rose pattern adding a pop of color to the set.

Real Smock Wedding in Milwaukee

Our Creative Director Amy Graham Stigler worked with Lindsey and Timothy on their custom letterpress wedding invitations for their wedding at the Historic Pritzlaff in Milwaukee. Debi Zeinert of the Blooming Quill calligraphed their invitation envelopes, which were adorned with an assortment of cool vintage stamps. We especially love how the couple had their vows screen printed on fabric and hung during the ceremony and reception – such a unique touch!

Eco-friendly wedding inspiration shoot featuring Smock’s Cimarron suite on Green Wedding Shoes!

We’re thrilled to share photos from a recent collaboration with the talented Kate Ignatowski that was featured today on Green Wedding Shoes! Our Cimarron letterpress invitation suite help set the tone for this rustic, eco-friendly wedding inspiration shoot, which took place at Pioneer Farm. Kate was inspired by her experience of shifting her business to be more environmentally conscious, so she reached out to a team of earth-friendly vendors to prove that having a wedding with low-to-no impact on the environment is totally possible (and incredibly pretty!). We love the end results – take a look!
