Sophisticated letterpress wedding invitations with custom hand calligraphy

Stephanie and William worked with Union Street Papery’s exclusive in-house calligrapher Mo Seder to create custom hand calligraphy for their sophisticated letterpress wedding invitations. Printed in a soft color palette of jute and sea mist inks on our ivory paper, these elegant wedding invitations helped set the tone for the couple’s recent wedding at the William Aiken House in downtown Charleston. Their invitation set included a petite website card to provide guests with additional information as well as classic reply cards. Both insert cards featured our Evans motif, which added a subtle hint of color.

Custom Roxbury Letterpress Birth Announcements

We love the pattern play on these sweet birth announcements that we printed for Luke’s arrival last summer. Inspired by our Roxbury design, these letterpress birth announcements pair sea mist and midnight inks on our white paper, with a digitally printed black & white photo as the main focus. A striped patterned envelope liner added some contrast to the chevron patterning used on the announcement.

For our Roxbury B’not Mitzvah invitations, we picture a vibrant celebration filled with lots of color and style. This invitation suite features a variety of our patterns in sea mist and papaya inks, so for a Roxbury-styled party we’d have colorful candy, fun fizzy drinks and a cute photobooth backdrop with colors and patterns to play off the invitations.

Playful patterned rehearsal dinner & brunch invitations

We love the way these rehearsal dinner and brunch invitations tie several different patterns together. Our Emory frame cartouche is included on all of the cards, but varying patterns surround the frame on the rehearsal dinner invitation, brunch card, and reply card. The airy, tropical color palette of sea mist and papaya helps set the tone for these fun wedding weekend events.

Design Contest Winner: Be Lucky in Love with these Offset Save the Dates

Cori at Social Graces in Nashville, Tennessee sent us this adorable Odin customization!  These offset printed save the dates are both personalized and creative, and were printed in a very cool color palette of our sea mist + grass inks. When we asked Cori what inspired this design she told us that the bride was drawn to the fun font style and whimsical frame, and loved how these elements balanced the striped background.  The wedding reception will be on her family’s horse farm, so the couple thought it would be appropriate to include a horseshoe.  Here at Smock, we believe these save the dates are lucky!  Common legend is that keeping the ends of a horseshoe point up keeps all of the good luck in. Congrats to the lucky bride and groom, and bravo to Social Graces for such an inspired design!
