We worked with Union Street Papery to create these colorful 50th birthday invitations for Joanna. The invitation printed in Lime and Pewter letterpress with Silver Shine accents set the tone for the big celebration to come. The same color palette was carried over to the reply and weekend event cards. Finally, an organic stripes envelope liner pattern played up the fun factor within this suite even further.

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!

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!

We created a full suite for Michael and Craig’s October wedding at the New England Aquarium using different motifs from our custom library.

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!
