This trendy text based offset invitation suite was submitted to us by our wonderful friend, Liz at Gus & Ruby Letterpress in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We were told the couple was looking for a type driven suite with a playful type – and we think this invitation encompasses that vision perfectly. We’re loving the cool hues and the simplicity of this creative suite. Our taupe and apricot inks simply blend so beautifully on our ivory bamboo paper. When picturing your own wedding invitation – you should toss in a bit of your own creativity to match back to your wedding venue or personalities.

We’re all for making an invitation suite all your own – and truly having fun when choosing customizations that reflect your personality. Our pewter and yolk inks shine in this cutting-edge letterpress Palmer suite – and we just can’t get enough of the fun embellishments seen throughout this set. We love that our plymouth die cut shape is carried through on the reply card, website card and accommodation cards. This peppy and colorful suite makes it difficult to shake the good vibes we’re feeling. We’re in the midst of the summer wedding season – and are excited to showcase a set with its own sense of style. Not to mention this invitation includes even more glam with a folio printed on both the interior and exterior – in very ultramodern patterns. The letterpress belly band in our ness pattern makes the perfect touch with a beautiful textured look. We’d like to give a HUGE thank you to our friend Enisha at The Dandelion Patch in Vienna, Virignia for sending us this imaginative customization!

Our good friend, Shelby at Seaside Papery in Coronado, California submitted this lovely Burstell letterpress wedding suite for printing. Talk about being pretty in pink with the most beautiful feminine touches! We are totally smitten with the perfect pocketfold – offset printed on both the interior and exterior. The taupe ink is such a soft, neutral tone- and when you pair this with a light shade of pink this set looks all the more delicate and truly picturesque.

This stellar custom invitation suite was submitted to us by our good friend Jessica at Judy Paulen Designs in New York, NY. With the perfect design elements on the invitation, this only quietly calls for attention-and we just love that! We absolutely adore the soft, subtle ink palette which is the perfect match to the couple’s fabulous venue in Chicago, Illinois. The neutral and conservative pairing of our dove and pewter inks look positively remarkable! And then there’s the metallic platinum envelope liner providing the perfect color contrast.

We’re overjoyed to share these recently printed Lashar wedding invitations submitted to us by our friend, Linda at Pen & Paper in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. What better color combination is there than mulberry and gold for a wedding celebration in December? When guests open up the pocketfold they will see the most incredible wash of mulberry and we think this is where the set is most romantic. Around here we LOVE December weddings and the colors that come with the holiday season.

Lose your heart in San Francisco with these recently printed custom letterpress wedding invitations designed by Lindsy Aragona, who is just one of our many wonderful in-house designers. This ultramodern and whimsical set was submitted to us by our great friends at Union Street Papery in San Francisco, California (would you have even guessed?). The San Francisco Bay Bridge is letterpressed in our lovely coral ink and the bubbly persona is carried through onto all pieces. They say people go crazy for a great city like San Francisco-and we’re just as crazy for this imaginative set!

We are crazy in love with this great customization of our Lashar design, submitted by our friend Libby from Byrd + Bleecker in Fort Worth, Texas (who we had the joy of seeing last week when she came up for a visit – see the fabulous letterpress coasters made for her while she was here on Boxcar’s blog!). We can’t get enough of the creative ways she uses our designs and motifs to create unique invitations for the lucky couples that walk into her store!

Brought to us by our lovely friends at Urbanic Paper Boutique, this next honoree in our Smock Design Contest is a customization of our Helani letterpress wedding invitation design. We love the gorgeous color palette, printed in azalea and pewter inks, and the fun mixing and matching of patterns. The letterpress invitation itself is printed in 2-color letterpress with patterned backing printed in azalea ink in our willoughby pattern. The reply post card was printed in 1-color letterpress in azalea ink with a sweet little accommodation card printed in pewter ink. For the perfect finishing touch, the envelope was lined in our champlain patterned printed in pewter.
Thank you so much to Urbanic for allowing us the great pleasure of printing this letterpress invitation suite. To learn more about this amazing Smock dealer, check out their recent Smock Store Spotlight feature.
