Moody navy watercolor invitations with gold foil stamped accents

Cara and Marshal customized our Barnesly design for their wedding at the Hotel Du Village in New Hope, Pennsylvania. These moody navy watercolor invitations with gold foil stamped accents were created thanks to the help of our friends at ORRganics. The suite contains a corresponding reply card and reply envelope printed in our crisp Navy letterpress. To keep everything safe and sound, they opted for our Juliette sleeve with a monogram accent and an  E.E. Cummings quote was also added as the sweetest finishing touch.

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.

Timeless foil stamped wedding invitations with blind deboss border

Tiffany and Paul personalized our Wessox invitation suite to fit their traditional Nantucket wedding. These timeless foil stamped wedding invitations came together thanks to the help of Gus and Ruby. To give the invitation a little extra love, they decided to add a simple yet elegant blind deboss border to the design. The touches of a damask pattern in cloud letterpress added a luxurious finish to the welcome dinner and reply cards. The best part of it all? A different type of border was featured on each piece to create a cohesive overall look to the suite without being too matchy-matchy.

Custom venue-inspired wedding invitations and save the dates

It’s always fun to see the finishing touches that our clients make when it comes to their wedding invitations and save the dates. For Chelsea and JohnMichael’s May wedding at The Hempstead House, we worked with Jill from Jilly P Invitations & Gifts to create a set of custom, venue-inspired wedding invitations and save the dates. Jill shared some background with us on the inspiration for this suite – we’ll let her take it from here! 

Whenever I work with a customer, my goal is to always make their dreams become a reality. For this invitation, the bride wanted a drawing of the castle where the event was being held. So as to hint at the incredible night ahead, we first used a hand drawn image of the castle on the save the date. As we continued the process, we then included the castle design on the direction card in the pocketfold invitation, and to tie it all together, we designed a beautiful stamp incorporating the castle. In finalizing the entire package, we added a wax seal on the back of the envelope with the bride and groom’s initials as a perfect finishing touch for what will be the most magical night of their lives.

Romantic garden inspired custom wedding invitations

These elegant custom wedding invitations feature a unique combination of both blind embossed and blind debossed florals, making for a beautifully textured design. Inside the invitation envelopes, colorful florals and greenery were bursting right off the envelope liners, which featured lovely pastels in shades of blues, greens, and purples. Letterpress printing in wisteria ink was used for the text throughout the suite, accented by a sweet script font to highlight names and key details.

Double-sided bilingual wedding invitations

We worked with Debbie at RSVP Today to create Georgia and Matthew’s double-sided bilingual wedding invitations for their summer wedding in Crete. The couple chose our ultra-thick 3-ply paper for their double-sided invitations, which featured an elegant monogram flanked by our balsam wreath cartouche. Our exclusive Plaza calligraphy font was used on the English side of the invitations, as well as the monogram and the welcome, reply, and rehearsal dinner cards. Both sides of the invitations featured copper shine foil and sage green letterpress ink; the English side showcased the text in foil while the Greek side featured letterpress, and the design elements were printed in the opposite color for a mirrored effect.

Gold and navy invitations with custom sleeves

Gold and navy is one of our favorite classic color pairings – and this Keira suite showcased it beautifully. Ryann and and Andrew opted to flip the orientation on the original design to create a vertical invitation, allowing for a more traditional layout for their text. Ruby, one of our exclusive calligraphy fonts (created just us by Molly Jacques) was used throughout the design, giving it a hand-calligraphed feel. A letterpress and foil stamped invitation sleeve contained each piece, which surely made an impression on every guest who received this stunning set!

Modern gold wedding invitations with watercolor accents

Amanda and Eric chose our Ellory design for their April wedding in Texas, opting for a gold color palette with pastel blue and green watercolor accents. We worked with our friends at Needle in a Haystack to create the set, which included a cute weekend festivities card and a response card in addition to the gold foil stamped invitations. An ocean-inspired watercolor envelope liner introduced a third color and complemented the mint green watercolor accents on each insert card beautifully.
