Aquarium Inspired Letterpress Wedding Invitation Suite

We created a full suite for Michael and Craig’s October wedding at the New England Aquarium using different motifs from our custom library. Their custom invitations paired our pewter and ocean inks together on white bamboo paper, with our coral motif and Harrison calligraphy font adding special touches. The other cards in the suite included our sea turtle, fish, and penguin motifs, which gave subtle nods to the venue.

Bridal Shower Thank You Notes

There are lots of exciting events that go hand-in-hand with weddings: engagement parties, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, welcome parties, and farewell brunches. While many couples will purchase wedding thank you notes to give thanks for gifts as a couple, we think it’s extra special for a bride to have some of her own stationery when it comes to writing bridal shower thank you notes. We rounded up a few of our favorites below — we love these for bridal shower thank you notes, but many of these cards can pull double-duty and work well as wedding thank you notes, too!

Tatra Save the Dates + Thank you cards in Purple Shine Foil

Our purple shine foil stamping makes these save the dates & thank you cards stand out – in a good way!  Submitted to us by our friends at The Village Invites in New York City, we adore the playful type on the Tatra design.

Thanking you with Gold Foil

Nothing says “thank you” like pressed foil! For an invitation order, it’s expected that a thank you card would be much simpler. However, Alisa from The Write Stuff in Tampa has found a way to enhance the card without sacrificing writing space. Using the two foils from the Tatra suite is a great way to incorporate foil into additional card types.

Floral Letterpress Save the Dates in Soft Hues

These letterpressed save the dates were submitted to us by our good friend, Aileen at Aileen Invitations in Miami Beach, Florida.  Our Rhon design looks truly sensational printed in our lavender and pewter inks.  There are certainly times when a softer color palette works best and this is definitely one of those times!  We print save the dates for all sorts of occasions and these save the dates happen to be for an engagement celebration.  We can’t help but feel that the lavender ink represents gracefulness and charm while the pewter ink helps keep this set looking refined.  Purple hues have always been connected to royalty which makes these save the dates all the more classic.  The couple chose our payette pattern in lavender for both the offset back patterning and envelope liner – which ties this whole set together nicely.

Sharp and Chic Hekla Letterpress Baptism Invitations

Submitted to us by our good friend, Elle at Petite & Sweet in Toronto, Canada these letterpressed Hekla baptism invitations are downright swank!  I mean talk about being up-to-the-minute!  These invitations showcase our royale and inkless blind deboss inks – and the end result makes for some of the most chic invitations we’ve had the joy of printing in quite some time.  The envelope liner adds another nice modernistic touch to this anything but simplistic set!  We think these invitations are the perfect prelude to such a memorable occasion – and helped achieve the vision the proud parents were hoping for.  We look forward to many more unique and current customizations from Petite & Sweet!

Vintage Inspired Letterpress Wedding Invitations

This vintage inspired customization of our Chasseral design was submitted to us by our great friends at LS Amster Company in Scarsdale, New York.  We think our eggplant and saffron inks were the perfect pairing for an autumn wedding.  The rich colors of the season are seen throughout- so much that it’s easy to see the leaves changing color! The iznik pattern envelope lining in saffron gives off the perfect amount of charm!  Complete with direction cards printed on both front and back- these cards tell guests everything they need to know about getting to the celebration!  The couple also chose letterpress thank you cards and we cannot think of a better way to show all of your guests your gratitude for being such an important part of your special day.  Vintage inspired + autumn color palette = ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING!

Pastel Letterpress Wedding Invitations!

You just might say we have a soft side for pastel ink colors letterpressed on our thick 2-ply bamboo paper-and you would be right.  Take a look at these elegant Engadine invitations submitted to us by our good friends at Salutations in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  Softer hues have a way of looking peaceful and calm, without being over the top.  The highlight is of course the gorgeous folio offset printed on the interior and exterior in the coolest colors to keep things modern.  There is a real warmth seen throughout this suite and we adore it!
