Printed in gold and coral letterpress, these wedding invitations surely are overflowing with sweetness and simplicity.  With a detailed starfish motif taking center stage these modern invitations do not prefer to splash around in the shallow end.  Can you see the barefoot beaches and rays of sunshine on their wedding day?  We can!

Letterpress Dragon Birth Announcements!

Baby announcements are just plain fun! We love the adorable little dragon artwork that was submitted by Union Street Papery. He looks like he’s excited about the new arrival too, as he playfully bounds over the granby pattern. The use of the same pattern for the liner was a great addition when chosen to be printed in reverse.

Modern + Traditional Bilingual letterpress wedding invitations!

Traditional wedding meets modern design in this wedding suite from our friends at Union Street Papery.  They put together this beautiful suite using our Talmossen design, which uses a traditional feel font and pairs it with modern design accents. This suite was done on our white Bamboo paper in Taupe ink. This was a wedding that brought together two cultures with invitations done in both English and Spanish version. All the pieces were finished off with metallic silver edge painting and the inner envelope was paired with a custom offset liner (our Fleming Design in Espresso) to give it that modern look.
