Submitted Artwork + Lettepress + Offset = Beautiful Invitations

Another beautiful set from Pretty as a Picture! Ailbhe sends us more custom artwork and finds ways to make each piece of this set individually unique. Somehow this set looks like more than just two colors. Perhaps it’s the clever use of negative space on the inside of the folio, bringing ivory butterflies through the offset pearl ink. This was a very popular set and serves as a great example of how much you can achieve through the right colors and layout.

Letterpress + offset wedding invitation suite with custom artwork

Setting the bar for Letterpress printing

If you want to know the extent of letterpress potential, just ask Ailbhe at Pretty as a Picture. Not only do our dear friends from Ireland consistently send us amazing work, but this set was for Ailbhe’s own wedding! With a hand-drawn map and coat of arms that Ailbhe created herself along with hand calligraphy by Sarah Hanna, plus the combination of letterpress and offset printing with foil stamping, this will forever be one of our all-time favorite invitations. Congrats again, Ailbhe!

Romantic and Charming Burstell Letterpress Wedding Invitations

It’s easy to get swept away with this charming letterpress invitation customization made to our Burstell design submitted to us by our friend Ailbhe from Pretty as a Picture in Ireland!  This modern text based invitation has clean lines and the right amount of flourishes to add a touch of elegance to this set.  We love the luscious raspberry on the interior of the folio even more because it is probably not something guests will be expecting!  The exterior of the folio is printed in our virelles pattern which looks positively nature inspired!  Pretty as a Picture always sends us the coolest customizations-and it’s safe to say this will be another crowd pleaser!
