Beautiful + Classic Burstell Invitation – Letterpressed in Pool Ink

This Burstell customization is truly striking, while nice, crisp lines on the invitation keep the invitation looking minimalistic.  This set was submitted to us by our great friend, Jessica at Salutations in Charlotte, North Carolina.  The exterior of the pocketfold showcases our grand clairveaux pattern which is letterpressed in our dove ink – making for a subtle, romantic vision.  Open the pocketfold to our mondsee pattern which is a bit more modern – but this classic, text based invitation looks absolutely stellar.  Our pool ink is a flawless choice- matching back to the couple’s venue at The Cloister at Sea Island.  We feel that our pool ink radiates warmth and provides the perfect contrast with our dove ink.
