Moody navy watercolor invitations with gold foil stamped accents

Cara and Marshal customized our Barnesly design for their wedding at the Hotel Du Village in New Hope, Pennsylvania. These moody navy watercolor invitations with gold foil stamped accents were created thanks to the help of our friends at ORRganics. The suite contains a corresponding reply card and reply envelope printed in our crisp Navy letterpress. To keep everything safe and sound, they opted for our Juliette sleeve with a monogram accent and an  E.E. Cummings quote was also added as the sweetest finishing touch.

Modern watercolor rehearsal dinner invitations

Natasha and Jordan reimagined our Vista design with the help our friends at Needle in a Haystack. These watercolor rehearsal dinner invitations were a modern nod towards their South Carolina Aquarium venue. They opted for contemporary fonts that have never looked better while dressed up in our Silver Shine foil; all paired against a navy wash background. Our Dixon pattern as the envelope liner printed in Slate and Sky was the perfect compliment to this subtly aquatic set.

Navy + gold pineapple wedding invitations

Danielle and Jeffrey worked with our friends at Lion in the Sun to create chic navy and gold pineapple wedding invitations for their Montego Bay celebration in May. We letterpress printed their invitations in navy ink, and highlighted their names with gold matte foil. Bold navy striped envelope liners reflected the seaside locale, while the gold pineapple motif gave a nod to the Round Hill Resort logo. We created a navy combination card that invited guests to both the welcome dinner and the farewell brunch, which resulted in a beautiful layered effect when the invitations were assembled and wrapped with their bellybands.

Gold and navy invitations with custom sleeves

Gold and navy is one of our favorite classic color pairings – and this Keira suite showcased it beautifully. Ryann and and Andrew opted to flip the orientation on the original design to create a vertical invitation, allowing for a more traditional layout for their text. Ruby, one of our exclusive calligraphy fonts (created just us by Molly Jacques) was used throughout the design, giving it a hand-calligraphed feel. A letterpress and foil stamped invitation sleeve contained each piece, which surely made an impression on every guest who received this stunning set!

Patriotic Letterpress Moving Announcements

We created these fun moving announcements for the Sonneborn family’s move from California to the nation’s capital. The folded card included a funny list of what’s in and out for the family — some of our favorites included power hoodies for power suits, and Silicon Valley for Scandal. The inside of the card shared the family’s new address, with a note to please visit soon. A custom envelope liner complete with iconic DC buildings added an extra patriotic finishing touch.

Preppy pineapple moving announcements

Digitally printed in pink, yellow, and navy inks, these petite moving announcements bear the universal symbol for hospitality: the pineapple. The recorded history of the hospitality pineapple dates back to the late 1400’s. At the time, pineapples were an uncommon luxury, and were displayed and served to guests to provide a warm welcome. We can’t think of a better way to invite family and friends into a new home!

Minimalist navy letterpress wedding invitations

Kyle and Nicholas customized our Chapman design for their springtime wedding at Current at Chelsea Piers. We printed their taupe and navy letterpress wedding invitations on our white bamboo paper. Sleek fonts, a square shape, and a simple striped envelope liner completed the minimalist, modern look that the couple was going for.

Navy Letterpress Wedding Invitation Suite

Navy letterpress is such a classic look that it pairs beautifully with almost any of our inks. We love how Judy Paulen Designs chose raspberry as the accent color to this letterpress wedding invitation suite. The couple also had a matching hang tags created as a miniature thank you note – a great way to say thanks at your reception!
