Sophisticated letterpress wedding invitations

James and Saragh’s wedding invitation suite reflects a monochromatic color palette with green as the leading color. These sophisticated letterpress wedding invitations carry a polished, classic kind of look that will never go out of style. While they decided to keep the cards themselves on the simple side, they played up the envelope liner by using our Payette pattern in Grass to match with the rest of the suite. To give this set a little extra love, a coordinating ribbon held everything together with a hand crafted monogram added as the finishing touch. Thanks to the help of our friend Shayne at Ink Papery, James and Saragh timeless invitation suite is something they will still look fondly at even after years of being together.

Romantic real wedding at the Silverleaf Country Club

Sarah and Colby worked with our friends at No Regrets to create their gorgeous Barnesly wedding invitations (get all of the details on them here!) complete with monogrammed invitation sleeves and rose gold foil stamped envelope liners. The bride is a talented portrait photographer and worked with Imoni Events to pull together a picture-perfect celebration at the Silverleaf Country Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. Romantic floral arrangements and garlands of lush greenery dressed up the beautiful venue, with modern gold accents like geometric vases and candle holders adding a fun touch to the centerpieces and decor. Below you’ll find a few of our favorite images from the big day, but take a look at Rachel Solomon’s blog for even more photos!

Monogrammed letterpress birth announcements

We worked with Adrienne at Ipanema Press to create these monogrammed letterpress birth announcements to mark Ashton’s arrival. We letterpress printed the petite S-5 cards in vine ink on our thick, 2-ply white bamboo paper. Adrienne created an adorable patterned envelope liner featuring custom-illustrated airplanes and Ashton’s initials in shades of green and pale blue. Such a sweet way to spread the news!

Emerald green letterpress Bar Mitzvah invitations

We love collaborating with our dealers to create custom invitations for all of our clients, but it’s a nice treat when we get the opportunity to collaborate with them for personal orders! Earlier this year, we had the opportunity to work with Evvy Diamond, co-owner of Nota Bene Paper, to create her son’s emerald green letterpress Bar Mitzvah invitations. We customized our Trenton design for the occasion, and created an invitation, party card, and reply card along with lined invitation envelopes. Beyond setting the tone for the celebration, the suite helped inspire a variety of cool party accessories and favors, including custom water bottles, personalized straws, and foil stamped drink stirrers!

Monogrammed engagement party invitations

For Maura and Charlie’s monogrammed engagement party invitations, we went with a monochromatic look, letterpress printing the invitations in pewter ink and using our white rose vintage print pattern for the coordinating envelope liners. We worked with Marissa Allie Designs to create the set, which was inspired by our Finley Bat Mitzvah suite, and we loved seeing the design reimagined for an engagement party!

Foodie inspired letterpress wedding invitations + save the dates

Talia and James put a unique spin on our rustic Cimarron invitation suite for their September wedding. The couple replaced the arrows in the Cimarron monogram with a crossed fork and knife, and their save the dates incorporated this motif along with fruits and veggies like pumpkins, cherries, apples and pears. We letterpress printed their save the dates and wedding invitations in lime ink, then edge painted the set with yolk ink. This fun invitation set was finished off with cheery yolk envelope liners in our Sherbrooke pattern.

Classy Monogrammed Sleeve

RSVP Today helped us transform our classic Altar design by updating all of the printing to our tawny matte foil. The foil stamped sleeve is enhanced with a classy duogram and cartouche. We love the way that the top of the invitation border looks as it fits perfectly into the sleeve adding just a touch of mystery.

Custom Bat Mitzvah Invitations – Letterpressed in Beautiful Blues

Penelope at The Dandelion Patch in Vienna, Virginia submitted this ultramodern custom Bat Mitzvah invitation suite for printing.  On the invitation, the custom submitted artwork spells out their daughter’s initials, ZLK – and we think this is done in the most adorable fashion.  This colorful and edgy set features our ocean, peacock and robin’s egg inks – and maintains the contemporary vibe throughout each piece. With an enclosed travel card, guests can get the lowdown on everything they need to know about the local area.  Personality and creativity shine through this unique suite – and we couldn’t be any more excited to be sharing this with you.
