Designer’s Desktop {Kentfield Bat Mitzvah}

The design we are sharing with you today in our Designer’s Desktop series is one we are quite fond of. We love how changing out one small element for another results in a big impact.

Our original Kentfield wedding invitation design consists of a hand-tooled French engraving cuts border around traditional wording with a pretty floral on the outer edge of the card. If florals aren’t your style, we swapped out the floral pattern for a small lattice pattern. The result is still soft and sweet, perfect for shifting the wedding invitation into a Bat Mitzvah design!

If you have an idea for a small change to one of our designs that will make a big impact on your own personal design, just let us know! We love to collaborate with our clients to create new designs – like transforming any of our wedding invitations into Bat Mitzvah invitations, shower invitations, etc. Contact us or one of our exclusive retailers to begin the design process.

Designer’s Desktop {Stinson Anniversary Invitation}

We view this Stinson variation as the ultimate “his and hers” design. Taking a mix of masculine and feminine details from this modern wedding invitation design and incorporating them into a 25th wedding anniversary party invitation is pure genius.

The front side of the card is all about modern design and clean lines with a simple line border and unique, but open, font layout. The back of the invitation takes the modest floral from the original and repeats it to create an overall pattern.

 

The charcoal grey duplexed cardstock foil stamped with silver foil ties each side together into one unified design. A great combination for a great couple on their silver wedding anniversary!

How will you unite your two personalities into your wedding invitation design and ultimately into your wedding day? We would love to help you define the elements that are important to you and turn them into your own unique custom design.

Client Customization – Simply Elegant Save the Date

Today’s Client Customization is a great lesson in keeping it simple! Our long-time retailer The Stovall Collection did a beautiful job in creating this custom save the date for a local soiree. Using our Kensington response card design as inspiration, they let the fonts and minimal details speak for themselves.

Starting with our Savoy natural white double-thick stock, they added the circular frame at the top in reflective gold foil with a seafoam letterpress accent surrounding the “save the date” messaging printed in olive letterpress ink.

The rest of the card includes only the most important details with a mix of fonts. The simple design allows for the date to stand out, which is the goal of a save the date card. Keeping things simple on this card makes for an overall elegant feel with lots of breathing room for all of the design elements. We’re loving this custom design!

Designer’s Desktop {Meadowood Wedding Invitation}

Our Meadowood save the date journal design is popular with couples that have a lot of information to share with their weddings guests. The multi-page format allows you to share weekend schedules, accommodation details and travel information.

Once the save the date is out and your guests have all of the details they need to enjoy your wedding weekend, it is time to design and send your wedding invitation. For our Meadowood suite, we designed a wedding invitation card that features a horizontal layout to match the save the date. The traditional wording is framed with a thin border of the signature Meadowood pattern in two colors of letterpress.

This design can be customized with your wedding color palette and with your favorite fonts and embellishments (like edge painting and envelope liners!). If you’re inspired, contact us to personalize this design for your wedding day.

Client Customization – Letterpress Baby Announcement

The vintage hot air balloon theme is so sweet for baby announcements and nurseries. This fun and uplifting symbol and the “anything-is-possible” vibe surrounding a new arrival is a perfect fit in our book. We had a ton of fun working with the auntie-to-be on this design that features a gender neutral color palette of celadon, pool and sunshine letterpress inks for the balloon details and on the playful stripe on the center panel (which later acted as a frame for a photo of the new arrival).
