Elegant gold calligraphy wedding invitations with foil envelope liners

We worked with the team at Houston Invitation Service to create Katherine and Stewart’s elegant gold calligraphy wedding invitations for their March celebration. The entire suite — invitations, die-cut reception cards, and reply cards — was printed in gold matte foil, along with the patterned backing on the reception cards and inner envelope liners. All of the design elements combined for a perfectly polished look for this black tie wedding at The Hobby Center in Houston!

Sutherlin save the dates + foil stamped wedding invitations inspired by The Baby Doll House

Magan and Keith celebrated their November wedding at the iconic Baby Doll House in Benoit, Mississippi. Their save the dates and invitations provided a glimpse of the venue for guests through a gorgeous watercolor depiction of the Greek Revival style mansion. We combined letterpress and digital printing for the save the dates, pairing them with metallic camel envelope liners. For their Sutherlin wedding invitations, the watercolor artwork was featured again, but this time on the digitally printed inner envelope liners. Tawny matte foil stamping was used on their classic invitations, direction cards, and reception cards, which also included our Sutherlin pattern.

Shimmering pearl foil stamped wedding invitations

We created a Gosford stlye invitation sleeve featuring the names of the bride and groom inside of a simple cartouche and surrounded  by the pattern from our Avella design. Metallic glass envelope liners added a final hint of shimmer to this timeless set.

Elegant foil stamped Halifax invitations

Our Halifax design took on a glamorous new look for Effie and Michael’s elegant summer wedding. We created a solid letterpress border around the invitation, then foil stamped a quatrefoil styled pattern on top. The reply card and reception card both mimicked the invitation, with the former picking up the letterpress border and the latter using the same foil border, making for a cohesive set across the board. We letterpress printed flat social notes featuring the names of the bride and groom in our Plaza calligraphy font by Sarah Hanna to round out the couple’s stationery suite.

Early December Wedding Celebration!

We’re overjoyed to share these recently printed Lashar wedding invitations submitted to us by our friend, Linda at Pen & Paper in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.  What better color combination is there than mulberry and gold for a wedding celebration in December?  When guests open up the pocketfold they will see the most incredible wash of mulberry and we think this is where the set is most romantic.  Around here we LOVE December weddings and the colors that come with the holiday season.

Keepin’ it Sophisticated with these clean cut Bar Mitzvah invitations

We don’t think you can get more clean cut and classic than these custom letterpressed Bar Mitzvah invitations.  This simple set was submitted by our wonderful friend, Nancy at Reed Cohen Paper & Events in New York, NY.  Letterpress printed in our midnight ink with the most modern border as an accent helps keep this set downright classy.  Staying in the lines of tradition, the Hebrew characters in the upper right hand corner symbolize the traditional Bais Hey blessing.  Our 2-ply card stock is always a popular choice for Bar and Bat Mitzvah invitations. We love how the block font brings a masculine feel to this invitation suite.
