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.

4th of July Barn Party wedding invitations

Danna and Michael treated their guests to a casual 4th of July barbecue for their wedding last summer. We digitally printed a custom map complete with adorable illustrations that was adhered to a red, white and blue invitation folio. Their barn party wedding invitations were actually inserts for the folio, and included a phone number for RSVPs. We love the checkered look on the outside of the folio — perfectly fitting for a barn party celebration!

Peach + gold ombré wedding invitations and save the dates

We created matching save the dates and ombré wedding invitations using our Spence design for Kasey and Adam’s Stone Harbor wedding celebration. The entire set was printed with gold matte foil, and the main two pieces included a pretty peach ombré fade. We duplexed the invitations to make them ultra thick, then added corner rounding and gold matte foil edging for a polished finish.

Custom tropical wedding invitation suite

Tracey and Nicholas worked with us to create one of the most beautiful invitation suites we’ve ever printed! For their May wedding in St. Barths, we digitally printed their tri-fold, passport style save the dates in pretty blues and pinks, then added gold shine foil stamping. An intricate custom crest complete with palm trees and their monogram was printed on both their save the dates and their gold wedding invitations, which also featured hand calligraphy. Their tropical invitation set included an events card and a reply card, which fit inside of a vibrant invitation sleeve complete with personal motifs – like the wedding chapel, a bottle of champagne, palm trees, and even the couple’s pup! Custom envelope liners for both the save the dates and the invitations were created to match each piece accordingly.

Custom Chinoiserie inspired letterpress wedding invitation suite

We created a completely custom letterpress invitation suite for Honor and Jay’s black tie celebration at Winvian Farm earlier this month. The entire suite – which included an invitation and folio, save the date, reply card, website card, rehearsal dinner invitation, brunch card, and a custom map – featured custom, hand-drawn illustrations inspired by Chinoiserie style porcelain. Little nods to the wedding venue were worked into the custom illustrations, which spanned the entire back of the invitation folio and were sprinkled throughout the additional pieces.
