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.

Custom Rustic Wedding Invitations + Hand-drawn map

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.
