Minimalistic Helani Bar Mitzvah Invitations

Write Next Door in Bethpage, New York sent in these contemporary Helani Bar Mitzvah invitations for printing.  Letterpressed in our espresso and grass inks, this earthy color palette helps keep this set looking youthful, but sophisticated and the three letter monogram at the very top is so classic.  The envelope is lined in our merritt pattern which we also adore because it matches perfectly to the bond border on the invitation.

Dawson Design Letterpressed in Violet + Persimmon = Colorful + Creative

We know we’ve shared many gorgeous Dawson customizations with you, but we especially couldn’t wait to share this one.  With a pairing of our violet and persimmon inks – this invitation is a sure fire hit.  We definitely feel the romance reflected from this invitation.  This suite was submitted by our friends at Epitome Papers in Edina, Minnesota and each piece is letterpressed on our luxurious 2-ply bamboo paper.  We adore that the vibrant and more feminine color palette is carried throughout on the reply cards and reception cards, too.  We love seeing couples step outside the box and truly toss in a bit of their own creativity when choosing how to customize their own wedding invitations.

Splendid Letterpress Bridal Shower Invitations

Our good friend Joanne at Cambridge Street Papers in Chatham, New Jersey submitted these contemporary letterpress bridal shower invitations to us for printing – and we think these are a real treat!  We’re big softies when it comes to inkless blind deboss paired with the perfect ink color – and this set has it all!  The bodin motif was printed with inkless blind deboss for a chic, subtle look, and the edges of the invitation were painted in grass – a somewhat unexpected edge paint color, but a fabulous embellishment for this set. The bouts of color do not end there – the back of the invitation was offset printed in our sinclair pattern – and this flood of raspberry makes this set all the more sweet.

High Spirited Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Amber at Hitched in Washington, DC submitted this lovely Odin wedding invitation suite to us for printing.  Letterpress printed in our navy ink and a custom purple ink, the combination of these two cool tones brings a feeling of joy to these modern invitations.  This set definitely has it all.  Each piece is letterpressed on our luxurious 2-ply bamboo paper and matches perfectly back to the charming and vivid invitation.  But we think the focal point of this suite is the letterpressed sleeve in our pastis pattern adding even more flair with the beautifully textured lines.  We thought this would be a fun and bubbly set to share with you at the start of the summer wedding season!

Lively + Cheery Wedding Invitation Suite

We have Liz at Paper Place in Austin, Texas to thank for submitting this bright and beautiful Dawson invitation to us for printing.  Lively and cheery are definitely adjectives that come to mind when taking a look these beauties!  We feel that pairing our ocean and yolk inks together is the perfect choice for a wedding in early spring.  When this is the time of year we’re used to seeing softer color palettes – pastels, too – it’s refreshing to see such a bubbly and bold invitation.  The couple also chose a custom letterpress sleeve which adds even more pizazz!

Paper Place was also sweet enough to send along the accessory pieces they printed in house to coordinate with the letterpress wedding invitations we printed.  The reply card, information card and rehearsal dinner card were sent along with the invitations.  The larger reception invitation and registry card were sent separately by the groom’s parents.  We love that the vibrant color palette is maintained throughout this set.  We always adore working with the lovely ladies at Paper Place – and we’d like to give a huge THANK YOU to them!

Design Contest Winner: Sophisticated & Sweet Bat Mitzvah Invitations

We have the lovely Jenny from Jenny’s Paper, Ink! to thank for these incredible letterpress Bat Mitzvah invitations that we recently had the pleasure of printing. The invitations have a sweet, youthful look and feature fun fonts and bold colors. Jenny said the inspiration for these Bat Mitzvah invitations began with a custom sleeve – Sari fell in love with the idea of keeping the entire invitation set together without using a typical folio or bellyband. From there, they created a logo that could be used throughout the event by pairing our Louise font with our Dawson cartouche. Next came the patterns and colors — Sari’s favorite color is blue, so robin’s egg was a perfect choice, and adding black as a second ink color gave the invitation a bold look. The Champlain pattern was used in different ways throughout the entire set, and complemented the playful fonts and bold ink combination beautifully.  The finished product was amazing and set the tone for a fabulous weekend with family and friends. Congratulations and thank you to Jenny for sending us such a stunning invitation set!

Design Contest Winner: Black + Robin’s Egg Inks create Brilliant Beauty

Take a peek at these vibrant and high spirited save the dates!  We have Melanie at Salutations in Charlotte, North Carolina to thank for these beauties!  We were even able to get a bit of a back story to find out where the inspiration came to create a design so eye catching and brilliant. The bride loved the bold pattern of our Evans design and wanted to use our robin’s egg ink color to truly make a statement.  We love to see couples choosing more modern and chic designs for their save the dates, even when they’re planning on sending a super formal invitation suite like these guys are planning.  The happy couple said that their save the dates totally matched their fun and bubbly personalities — and we couldn’t agree more! Thanks so much to Salutations for sending us such a fun save the date set — we can’t wait to see the invitations!
