Modern watercolor rehearsal dinner invitations

Natasha and Jordan reimagined our Vista design with the help our friends at Needle in a Haystack. These watercolor rehearsal dinner invitations were a modern nod towards their South Carolina Aquarium venue. They opted for contemporary fonts that have never looked better while dressed up in our Silver Shine foil; all paired against a navy wash background. Our Dixon pattern as the envelope liner printed in Slate and Sky was the perfect compliment to this subtly aquatic set.

Gold foil stamped wedding invitations with seaside style

Take elegance, add a touch of nautical flair, and you’ll find Katherine and Matthew’s suite as the beautiful end result. You can never go wrong with classic gold foil stamped wedding invitations, but this couple decided to add their own twist by including a belly-band featuring an exquisite painting of Nantucket Island. The suite included other nods towards Nantucket like the motif of the island on the weekend celebration card and the nautical monogram on the invitation and thank you card. These kinds of accents made the suite harmonious in an incredibly tasteful way thanks to the help of Parchment Fine Papers. The watercolor envelope liner printed in Sea Mist was yet another subtle yet complimentary means of tying everything together.

Classic letterpress wedding invitations featuring dreamy watercolor florals

There is something to be said for the simplicity of a classic letterpress wedding invitation. That kind of beauty could never be overdone, but we also love when timeless elegance is transformed through the marriage of modern day and old world printing techniques. We were thrilled to work with AGI Events to create these invitations for Ross and Rebeccas’s wedding at the Tribeca Rooftop in New York City. The inclusion of the dreamy watercolor florals added a completely new level of interest to a traditional layout. Using black letterpress as the ink color for the wording was a perfect neutral against the colorful palette of the florals framing the page. To top it all off, an envelope liner with a sweet saying tied everything together to complete this suite.

Custom hazel wedding invitations

We worked with Kara at Nest Paper Studio to create these custom wedding invitations for a November celebration at the Annesdale Mansion in Memphis, Tennessee. In order to create a thick, 2-ply piece, we digitally printed both pieces of the invitation in a flood of hazel ink, then duplexed the two pieces together. The invitations feature our popular tawny matte foil stamping for both the text and the edge treatment, adding a sophisticated metallic touch. A hazel watercolor envelope liner tied the entire set together, which set the tone for this elegant fall affair.
