Suite Spotlight – Vignette Letterpress Invitation

The next design in our Suite Spotlight series is the Vignette collection from our original Custom Wedding Portfolio. Over time, this popular, evergreen suite has seen many variations and thus showcases the best of our custom design process.

Originally designed for Martha Stewart Weddings magazine as a wedding suite, this “vintage with a modern twist” letterpress printed card is an architecturally-inspired design that blends classic proportions with modern minimalism. The variation we are showcasing today was recently added to our website’s Custom Social Stationery gallery. Customized as a social invitation for a winemaker’s dinner party, it features our black and saffron letterpress inks and a black linen envelope liner.

Given all of the requests we received lately for invitations with a mid-century modern theme, the inspiration board details a grand party with vintage flair!

Trend Alert – Chevron Pattern

Chevron stripes have been around for a long time – dating all the way back to Greek pottery and as current as the mod fashions of the 70s – but it seems that the current resurgence is making a big splash in every aspect of life: fashion, interior design and stationery! The geometric boldness is perfectly suited to make a statement, like this skirt from the spring Anthropolgie collection.

A bit like these striking images from the Anthropologie catalog, our Carneros design blends a graphic chevron pattern with a botanical wreath monogram detail on this letterpress wedding invitation suite, finding the perfect balance between modern and traditional.

Trend Alert – Jewel Tones

You can be sure to make a bold statement {in fashion or on paper} with dynamic and distinctive jewel tones! Utilizing this rich color palette often has a dramatic and elegant result, as displayed in this editorial fashion shoot by Michelangelo di Battista for Vogue Italia, featuring Jessica Chastain. You can find more images from this vibrant shoot here.
