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!

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).


Our trifold design is perfect for baby announcements, engagement party invitations, wedding save the dates, anniversary parties … you name it! We would love to hear your ideas and turn them into a unique design for your next extraordinary event! Contact us to start the design process.

Client Customization – Custom Color Palette

Color is one of the best ways to customize your wedding stationery. If you find yourself thinking about that one specific invitation design you pinned and love, “if only it was in your wedding color palette,” we want you to know that with our Custom Wedding Portfolio II you can always change the colors on the cards – for no additional cost. We created our custom design program assuming that every couple would, at the very least, want to personalize the color palette.

This customization of our Arbor wedding suite is a fun example of exactly that! Pairing our spring letterpress ink with a bright and cheerful magenta foil makes this design unique to this couple and their event.


The choice of design and playful color palette are perfect for this cocktail party invitation. Using color to express the personalities of the hosts or the playfulness of a specific event are a great way to get your guests excited about the big day, not to mention, differentiate the different auxiliary events from the wedding day!

Do you want to play with color? Is there a design in our album that you would love to see in a different color combination than it is shown? Let us know! We would love to work with you to find your perfect palette.

Client Customization – Letterpress Destination Wedding Invitation

We love designing invitations for destination weddings! What a treat for a couple and their guests to have the opportunity to celebrate the new union over an extended week or weekend. It is such a great way to make your wedding memorable.


This playful design, from our retailer Ellis Hill, emphasizes the travel aspect and excitement surrounding this Mexico wedding. Including the phrase “pack your bags” in a bold, fun font on the back side of the invitation is sure to have your friends and family booking their accommodations shortly after opening this invitation. The bold pops of papaya and twilight letterpress inks on the map and type put everything into perspective and set the tone for this extraordinary event!

Whether you’re getting married near or far, we would love to help you design a custom wedding suite that will have your guests excited to attend. Email us or one of our exclusive retailers to start the design process today!
