Gender neutral baby shower invitations

These sophisticated gender neutral baby shower invitations from Georgia Ann’s Paperie pair pewter and taupe letterpress inks on our ivory bamboo paper. We worked with Georgia to create a custom design using fonts and elements from our design library (like our lamby motif and our pavee border), and created a playful patterned envelope liner using our fleming pattern to match the whimsical invitation design.

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!

Aquarium Inspired Letterpress Wedding Invitation Suite

We created a full suite for Michael and Craig’s October wedding at the New England Aquarium using different motifs from our custom library. Their custom invitations paired our pewter and ocean inks together on white bamboo paper, with our coral motif and Harrison calligraphy font adding special touches. The other cards in the suite included our sea turtle, fish, and penguin motifs, which gave subtle nods to the venue.

Cozy autumn wedding in Germantown, New York

Jessica and Adam chose our Ashbourne design to set the tone for their cozy autumn wedding, and created a full custom invitation suite and programs in a soft color palette of pewter and sand inks. Guests cozied up with white blankets on the grounds of A Private Estate for the couple’s riverfront ceremony, then made their way to the barn for the cocktail hour with warm mulled sangria in hand. Inspired by their love of local food and wine, the elegant farm to table reception featured a unique trios of salads and desserts, which were artfully served up on striking wooden plates by Michael Scott Catering. We can’t get enough of all the beautiful details that went into this wedding — especially the amazing florals by Saipua!  Be sure to visit the Cappy Hotchkiss blog to see even more images from this celebration!

Chapman Bar Mitzvah Invitations with Chevron Patterned Backing

We customized our Chapman design for William’s Bar Mitzvah invitations. The invitation featured pewter and dove inks, with a pop of persimmon on the monogram, edge painting, and patterned backing. The reply cards were printed in persimmon ink and the directions card was printed in pewter. Colorful chevron envelope liners combining all three colors  tied the entire set together.

Altar in Pewter and Gossamer

Featuring offset back patterning, letterpress printing in pewter and gossamer, and an offset printed belly band to tie it all together, this Altar invitation suite turned out really lovely.  Belly bands are a great way to keep insert pieces neatly organized inside the envelope, and they also help tie things together visually as well.  Many thanks to Nota Bene for submitting this order for us to print!
