Skip to the good stuff!

Sneak peek: new wedding invitation designs will be here soon!

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! 

Linden wedding invitation suite from Smock

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! 

New Prospect wedding invitations from Smock

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. 

SC_A11A1614 Exeter wedding invitations from Smock

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! 

Greely wedding featured on Style Me Pretty

Rocki and Doug personalized our Greely suite with copper shine foil for their November wedding in Texas Hill Country. We worked with our friends at Events to create their wedding invitation suite (complete with reply cards and website cards) along with #10 sized wedding programs, menus, and a cute folded itinerary that we assembled with neutral colored ribbons. They were after a rustic, shabby chic look, and chose a venue with both a whimsical and romantic feel for their big day. The couple chose to highlight the natural rustic beauty of the property by using a neutral color palette and infusing pops of burgundy and rust to tie into the fall season. These are just a few of our favorite photos from their big day, but head over to Style Me Pretty for even more inspiration!

Aquarium Inspired Letterpress Wedding Invitation Suite

We created a full suite for Michael and Craig’s October wedding at the New England Aquarium using different motifs from our custom library. Their custom invitations paired our pewter and ocean inks together on white bamboo paper, with our coral motif and Harrison calligraphy font adding special touches. The other cards in the suite included our sea turtle, fish, and penguin motifs, which gave subtle nods to the venue.

Lavender Ingalls suite featured on Martha Stewart Weddings + Elizabeth Anne Designs

Last summer we collaborated with California based wedding planner Amy Nichols to create a gorgeous lavender inspiration shoot that’s been featured on both Martha Stewart Weddings and Elizabeth Anne Designs! Our Ingalls suite helped set the tone for the shoot, which took place at Amy’s parents’ avocado and lemon ranch in Santa Paula. Inspired Southern California’s lavender fields, the shoot featured a wide range of purple shades — from the candles to the flowers and even the napkins! Many thanks to Amy for including us in this beautiful shoot!

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!

Oceanic Odin Offset additions!

Celia at Urbanic came to us for these “day of” pieces for a September wedding. Our Odin design was a perfect fit, especially when designed using the right cartouche and blend of our ocean and peacock inks. Carrying the design over to the table numbers and place cards was a great way to make the motifs stand out at the reception.

Summer Inspired Letterpress Featured in Martha Stewart Weddings

Recently featured in Martha Stewart Weddings and showcased on their blog (here and here), we loved working on this stunning summer-inspired custom designed wedding suite with our friends at The Wedding Library. We chose bright and cheerful shades of red and aqua, inspired by a vintage handkerchief with a fun cherry motif. The end creation is bright, elegant and perfect for a summer wedding celebration. We designed and printed letterpress invitations, signage, table numbers, favor tags, and place cards, all perfectly coordinated for the vision of the event and showcasing our Smock Clermont calligraphy font. Another huge thank you to Claudia Hanlin for proposing this fantastic project – it was so much fun and a true honor.

Kurai Letterpress Dinner Menu

When we print letterpress dinner menus, we can’t help but marvel over the great food we know guests are going to deilght in enjoying – cinnamon and port wine poached anjou pear? Sounds declicious! Brought to us by Aileen’s Invitations in Miami, this letterpress menu is our Kurai design printed in rich raspberry ink. The vertical orientation, in combination with the border around the edges, makes this customization quite different from the original design. This customization is the definition of sophisticated elegance.

Summer Romance Tablescape Inspiration from StudioWed

Featuring beautiful letterpress details by Smock in our Rhon design, calligraphy from our master calligrapher Debi Zeinert, and the beautiful styling of Lemiga Events, this tablescape is undeniably beautiful. Once again sent to us by the lovely Debra Saba of Luxe Expressions, Debra and the other talented professionals of StudioWed in Atlanta pulled together this tablescape design that has us totally inspired. (And the photos, taken by Blue World Studios, are just as beautiful!)

Summer Romance Tablescape from StudioWed featuring Smock

From the amazing linens from I Do Linens, to the adorable place cards poking out of pretty peaches, to the breathtaking flowers from Tulip, the details are so fresh and so pretty. It would make for a beautiful wedding, but would be equally as brilliant for a great anniversary or engagement party. The possibilities are endless!

Summer Romance Tablescape from StudioWed featuring Smock

We are completely charmed by how lovely our Smock letterpress menus and place cards look nestled in among such fabulous details. And how amazing is that cake from Sweet Sensations? Even the fresh lemons and adorable bottles of lemonade are incredibly sweet – we’re so thrilled to have our Smock letterpress included in such an inspiring design!

A big thank you to Debra for all of the incredible inspiration this week – it’s such a pleasure to share it with everyone!
