Letterpress Christmas cards in Cherry + Grass

If we were not already in the holiday spirit- these colorful and cheery Christmas cards would surely turn that right around!  This custom and lovable set was submitted to us by our good friend, Sara at Salutations in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  Check out the reindeer envelope liner that is actually made from our Smock gift wrap!  Looking at these cards we can’t help but feel good inside, as the holiday season is just around the corner!  What a perfect way to send warm wishes to your friends and family!

Pastel Letterpress Wedding Invitations!

You just might say we have a soft side for pastel ink colors letterpressed on our thick 2-ply bamboo paper-and you would be right.  Take a look at these elegant Engadine invitations submitted to us by our good friends at Salutations in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  Softer hues have a way of looking peaceful and calm, without being over the top.  The highlight is of course the gorgeous folio offset printed on the interior and exterior in the coolest colors to keep things modern.  There is a real warmth seen throughout this suite and we adore it!

Custom Letterpress Invitation – Pure Elegance

Thanks to Melanie at Salutations in Charlotte, North Carolina for the opportunity to print a beautiful letterpress + offset wedding invitations. Using submitted artwork to combine offset printing for their folio and letterpress printing for their cards, the patterns and designs used in this set were very striking. Seamist compliments taupe very well to begin with, but we were very pleased to see how elegant everything looked when put together. Great work, Melanie!

Letterpress wedding invitations with custom pocketfold folios – wow

We had to hold ourselves back from posting hundreds of photographs of this Vettore letterpress wedding invitation. Since we custom make each of our pocket folios, clients can choose whatever patterns and ink colors they want on the interior and exterior. So check out this awesome, drop-dead gorgeous folio in spring and pearl inks (interior pattern is clairveaux, the exterior pattern is a custom pattern inspired by the Vettore illustrations). Oh we are totally in love! Sent to us by our friends at Salutations in Charlotte, North Carolina.
