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.

Lavender Ingalls suite featured on Martha Stewart Weddings + Elizabeth Anne Designs

Last summer we collaborated with California based wedding planner Amy Nichols to create a gorgeous lavender inspiration shoot that’s been featured on both Martha Stewart Weddings and Elizabeth Anne Designs! Our Ingalls suite helped set the tone for the shoot, which took place at Amy’s parents’ avocado and lemon ranch in Santa Paula. Inspired Southern California’s lavender fields, the shoot featured a wide range of purple shades — from the candles to the flowers and even the napkins! Many thanks to Amy for including us in this beautiful shoot!

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.

Shimmering pearl foil stamped wedding invitations

Jade and Matthew combined two of our designs to create their elegant wedding invitations. Their invitations and combination reply + reception cards feature our Galena design, with design accents highlighted in subtle pearl shine foil. We created a Gosford stlye invitation sleeve featuring the names of the bride and groom inside of a simple cartouche and surrounded  by the pattern from our Avella design. Metallic glass envelope liners added a final hint of shimmer to this timeless set.

Elegant foil stamped Halifax invitations

Our Halifax design took on a glamorous new look for Effie and Michael’s elegant summer wedding. We created a solid letterpress border around the invitation, then foil stamped a quatrefoil styled pattern on top. The reply card and reception card both mimicked the invitation, with the former picking up the letterpress border and the latter using the same foil border, making for a cohesive set across the board. We letterpress printed flat social notes featuring the names of the bride and groom in our Plaza calligraphy font by Sarah Hanna to round out the couple’s stationery suite.

Romantic floral wedding suite with chevron invitation sleeves

Samantha and Thomas selected a romantic blush color palette for their July wedding. The couple celebrated at the bride’s family home, and worked with Sweet Paper to customize our Chapman suite. We created chevron invitation sleeves to contain their set, which included invites, reply cards, brunch cards, direction cards, and welcome dinner invitations. Finishing touches included our pink vintage rose patterned envelope liners and corner rounding for a soft, polished look.

Classic wedding invitations + gold foil Rocky Mountain envelope liners

For their Aspen wedding, Kelly and Daniel worked with Byrd and Bleecker to create a timeless invitation suite with a dramatic envelope liner. We printed their suite in gold matte foil and espresso letterpress ink, and created an invitation, reply card, and welcome party invitation. The couple kept the invitations and additional pieces simple, opting for a chic, text-based design, and showcased the Rocky Mountains on their stunning gold foil envelope liners.

Intricate Ballymagarvey Village letterpress invitations

Leanne and Joseph worked with Appleberry Press to create their intricate letterpress wedding invitations depicting their wedding venue, Ballymagarvey Village. Printed in classic black ink, the invitations include incredibly fine detailing — right down to the idyllic ivy vines growing along the house! Lush gold florals added a romantic touch to the invitation envelopes, and continued on to the envelope liners.

Sophisticated rose gold wedding invitations

We’re still all about the ever-popular metallic trend, and can’t get enough of the gold, silver, and copper invitations we’ve been printing these days. One of our favorite shiny metallic looks though? Rose gold – which is why we love this take on our Spence design. Ariel and Joshua worked with Marissa Allie Designs to create their rose gold wedding invitations and reply cards. We printed subtle envelope liners with our vintage world map pattern in jute to match. We love the end result!

Striped letterpress wedding invitations + social notes

We customized our Fremont design for Ryan and Christopher’s autumn wedding at the Brant Point Lighthouse on Nantucket Island. Their letterpress suite was printed in olive ink, and we created striped envelope liners in olive and sage inks to complement the stripes used throughout the set. In addition to the invitations, we created folded social notes with a simple monogram, website cards, an events card, and reply postcards. Each piece featured varying stripe designs, and our oak leaf motif added a seasonal touch to these simple yet sophisticated wedding invitations.
