Designer’s Desktop {Marinwood Wedding Invitation Suite}

Our Marinwood trifold save the date is one of our most popular and asked-for designs. Falling right in line with the casual elegance and playful feel of the save the date, the coordinating wedding invitation for this design is equally as stunning.

We incorporated the lattice pattern and detailed florals in new ways on the invitation suite to mix things up. Knowing that most families like to keep the main wedding invitation on the traditional side, we paired a simple border with the florals to create a frame around the classic fonts. For that wow-factor, we letterpress printed the lattice pattern on the entire back-side of the invitation card.

Keeping the theme going, we sprinkled in elements in different ways on each of the accessory cards. Our Marinwood invitation suite is an example of how much we love using the same design elements in different ways. This is one of the main perks of our Custom Wedding Portfolio. You can choose the elements you want and we can design the layout any way you choose without incurring extra design charges.

If you love one of our designs but want to change the card shape or layout, just let us know, we would love to turn your design ideas into a unique printed piece for your wedding day!

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!

Client Customization – Classic Foil Stamped Menu

This custom menu design is elegance at its best! This couple chose the very classic reflective silver foil for their entire menu card. The traditional fonts used for the menu are beautifully balanced (and enhanced) by the decorative frame and delicate pattern surrounding it. These details, borrowed from our Larkspur wedding invitation suite, are a beautiful way to greet guests at their seat as they find their place at the start of your wedding reception.


No matter the color palette you choose for your Larkspur wedding invitation, this design is easily customized with any palette to suit your event. You can mix foil with letterpress, bold and neutral ink colors, and this design is a sure-fire recipe for a gorgeous wedding reception!

We all know that most wedding couples labor over decisions such as the menu for their wedding day so why not share every detail you designed with your guests? They will surely appreciate your attention to detail so don’t forget to share it with them. Get in touch with us for tips on putting your menu design together!

Client Customization – Letterpress + Foil Wedding Program

Referrals are the biggest complement! We love that our exclusive retailer, Parchment Fine Papers in Nantucket, has asked us to help design wedding stationery for multiple members of this family. We love that we get to be a small part in the big events that highlight the lives of our clients. The best part, is that we also get to see a different side of each personality and event when a client takes advantage of our free custom design process. Our Custom Wedding Portfolio II is full of inspiration, but also allows you to personalize your stationery for your event, making it unique!


This wedding program has an overall traditional and classic feel with the layout, format and fonts chosen, but this couple personalized the details by choosing our nautical twilight letterpress ink, a matching ribbon detail and to top it off, a reflective silver foil anchor on the cover to underscore the wedding location.

Are you inspired by a design you’ve seen on our website or blog but want to make it your own? That is what we’re here for! Contact us or one of our exclusive retailers and we can help you easily create your own custom design!

Client Customization – Letterpress Beach Wedding Invitation

This beach wedding invitation makes a bold statement with a large motif printed behind classic fonts. The graphics are large, but do not take over the entire suite since they are printed in our soft powder blue letterpress ink. Paired with our taupe letterpress ink for the type, we think this softer version of traditional black or silver really adds to the beachy vibe of this suite.


Sent to us by our exclusive retailer Lettres, this design is one that is easily customized. If you’re having a garden wedding or getting married under an oak tree, we can easily swap out the beach motifs for florals or a gorgeous oak and acorn. We would love to work with you, so contact us, to find your signature style.
