Refined letterpress wedding invitations with rustic flair

This past October Jori and Christopher were married at Architectural Artifacts in Chicago. Their venue is filled with a combination of formal yet vintage touches throughout and their refined letterpress wedding invitations reflected the space perfectly. Our Bristen design originally uses Sand letterpress only on the leaf motif, but this couple decided to change it up by throwing Taupe and Tawny Matte accents within the mix as well. To give the traditional invitation layout a little something extra, Tawny Matte was also added to the names of the bride and groom to make them shine among the rest. Guests will find the same leaf motif added throughout the rest of the set to keep everything cohesive and interesting to the eye. Thanks to the help of Quintessence Fine Papers and Gifts, we were able to create an incredibly sweet suite.

Letterpress wedding invitations with modern geometric sleeve

We can never get enough of patterns that have something to say. Our Sheridan design is all about pushing that envelope even further with its modern geometric flair. Melissa and Yuki decided that this design would be the perfect fit to reflect their wedding held at the Four Seasons in Scottsdale, Arizona. A digitally printed marble sleeve with Bronze Shine accents gave everything a home in a chic way. While the same contemporary pattern printed on the sleeve was carried onto the reply envelope as well as the menu. The unique diamond structure was used as the actual shape of the menu for another wow factor within their wedding stationery. Thanks to the help of Mrs. Post Fine Stationery & Gifts, we were able to create a suite that will surely leave their guests talking.

Gender neutral baby shower invitations

These sophisticated gender neutral baby shower invitations from Georgia Ann’s Paperie pair pewter and taupe letterpress inks on our ivory bamboo paper. We worked with Georgia to create a custom design using fonts and elements from our design library (like our lamby motif and our pavee border), and created a playful patterned envelope liner using our fleming pattern to match the whimsical invitation design.

Old-world rehearsal dinner invitations

A stately venue calls for a stately invitation! For Melissa and Geoffrey’s rehearsal dinner at The Colonnade Inn — an elegant estate that dates back to the 1870’s — we created a custom version of our Haynes rehearsal dinner invitations. A vintage world map pattern was used for the envelope liners, which accentuated the old-world charm, while hints of tawny matte foil and classic fonts combined for a modern yet timeless look.

Kyle and Nicholas customized our Chapman design for their springtime wedding at Current at Chelsea Piers. We printed their taupe and navy letterpress wedding invitations on our white bamboo paper.

Custom Letterpress Baby Shower Invitations Featured on Style Me Pretty

We worked with Michael and Jessica from JCG Events to create these darling letterpress baby shower invitations for their shower! The invitation features Ruby — one of our exclusive calligraphy fonts — in taupe letterpress ink, and was edge painted in neon pink ink. The return address was also printed in neon pink ink, and the couple had the envelopes addressed in neon pink ink to match. They even purchased vintage postage to match the look of the shower (including an Audrey Hepburn stamp – for baby Audrey!). For the celebration, Jessica and Michael hosted a beautiful, Italian-inspired event at Villa Woodbine in Miami, complete with vibrant centerpieces, a DIY headband station and a gelato cart.  Head over to Style Me Pretty to see more photos and details from this beautiful baby shower!
