Nautical foil stamped wedding invitations

We can’t imagine a better fit for a wedding in Cape Neddick, Maine than the design chosen for Allyson and Charles. These nautical foil stamped wedding invitations set the tone for their wedding at The Cliff House, a beautiful venue with breathtaking views of the sea from every angle. It’s only appropriate that the invitation was printed in Midnight letterpress as a nod towards the nautical affair, while accents of Rose Gold Shine gave the invitation an extra touch of elegance. The Plymouth die-cut shape added some extra interest to the design as well. A custom map pattern of the surrounding area was supplied for the lining of the envelope printed in Midnight to coordinate with the rest of the suite while little touches of seafaring motifs were included within the set in a tasteful way as well. The rehearsal dinner invitation was printed digitally in our Sangria ink color which added an unexpected but eye-catching twist to the invitation suite. We always look forward to working with Gus and Ruby on all their gorgeous invitation suites and this set was certainly no exception to that!

Custom floral watercolor invitation sleeves

Amanda and Neal created a stylish letterpress invitation suite for their September celebration at the Barns at Wolf Trap. We collaborated with our friends at The Dandelion Patch on the suite, which featured sweet script fonts and letterpress printing in midnight ink on our white bamboo paper. The invitations, information cards, brunch invites and response cards were all tucked  inside of the suite’s wow-worthy statement piece: a custom floral watercolor invitation sleeve in varying shades of pink, purple, orange and emerald.

Minimalist Floral Bat Mitzvah Invitations

We created a minimalist floral look for Eleanor’s Bat Mitzvah invitations by customizing our Ossa design in sea mist and midnight letterpress inks. The square invitation featured a simple border and clean, sophisticated fonts, while the reply card and reception card each had a similar vibe and featured coordinating vine-like motifs. Sea mist envelope liners in our Phelps pattern tied the set together.

Ocean inspired letterpress Baptism invitations

We worked with our friends at Mark Harris Stationers to create a monogrammed version of our Walsh invitation design for Georgi’s letterpress Baptism invitations. Printed in ocean and midnight inks, the invitations feature a modern font and a pebble inspired patterned backing. Starfish and seahorse motifs added character to the set, which was letterpress printed on our white bamboo paper.

Yellow letterpress Bat Mitzvah Invitations

For Sadie’s Bat Mitzvah, we customized our Robson design with a sophisticated color palette of yolk and midnight inks. The suite included Sadie’s letterpress Bat Mitzvah invitations – complete with a vibrant yolk patterned backing – along with reception cards, reply cards, a petite transportation card, and a flat social note. Finishing touches included a pearl patterned envelope liner, yolk edge painting, and a custom postage stamp design to match.

Ocean inspired 50th Birthday Party invitations

A lavish affair calls for a special invitation! We customized our Walsh design for Jeffrey’s 50th birthday party invitations by changing the orientation and adding a conch shell from our motif library. We also included ocean inspired motifs on the events card, which outlined the various activities being offered to guests during the three day celebration.

We worked with Ashlee at Union Street Papery to create Katharine and Christopher’s rustic wedding invitations for their October nuptials. Letterpress printed in midnight ink, the invitations feature beautiful hand calligraphy, a custom monogram, and gold matte foil accents. We also printed a gorgeous hand-drawn map to accompany the set, which highlighted the area and included the couple’s wedding website.

Custom Roxbury Letterpress Birth Announcements

We love the pattern play on these sweet birth announcements that we printed for Luke’s arrival last summer. Inspired by our Roxbury design, these letterpress birth announcements pair sea mist and midnight inks on our white paper, with a digitally printed black & white photo as the main focus. A striped patterned envelope liner added some contrast to the chevron patterning used on the announcement.

Halifax Letterpress Engagement Party Invitations

We worked with Fresh Ink to create these chic letterpress engagement party invitations for Carter and Wilson. Their die-cut invitations featured our Halifax invitation design in midnight ink, and our Plaza calligraphy font added a sophisticated touch. The couple introduced a second color and customized the invitation design by adding a marav patterned envelope liner and a croft patterned backing in our flax ink. The final result? Perfect for a fall engagement party.
