We have SUCH a treat for you today! This perfectly peach and papaya variation of our letterpress Carmen wedding invitation summoned Jillian & Vander’s wedding guests to quite a sweet event! 100 Layer Cake said it best in their post: Every little detail is impeccable, but it feels relaxed and unfussy at the same time. We couldn’t agree more!
The bride and groom worked with our exclusive retailer, Union Street Papery, and customized Carmen to perfectly suit their event. The design is warm and subtle; strong and sophisticated. The unexpected choice of typefaces set the mood with flair, while the layers of elegant patterns, used in different ways on the various cards in the suite, bring it all together. Bundled in an elegant pocket and wrapped with a stunning letterpress-printed belly band with their custom monogram was sure to get their guests excited to share the day with them.
We say it time and time again, but seeing everything together on the wedding day is what we love most about what we do. Seeing that the custom monogram we designed for them was incorporated into the design of the wedding cake makes our day!

This robin’s egg blue + begonia beauty is a variation of one of our most versatile designs. This Camille customization, and how a simple change to your favorite design elements, is exactly why we built our Custom Wedding Portfolio. With its decorative frame and patterned background, this square letterpress invitation can take on many looks just by simply choosing a different pattern and color palette – which is exactly what this bride and groom have done.
After swapping out the original Florentine-feeling graphic botanical pattern for a detailed pattern reminiscent of an Art Deco tile pattern, a completely new design is created. One that is beautifully suited to their coastal California wedding at the Santa Barbara Biltmore.
You know how the wedding industry is always talking about how the invitation is the first glimpse your guests will get into your big day? This customization is an example of how important the invitation design can be.

Selecting a font to suit the look and feel of a wedding is a true art. We love the inspiration behind this work. Choosing a typeface and artfully placing it over the image says just as much about the location as the photograph itself.
Hope you have an inspiring weekend!
This past winter we were thrilled to work with the editorial team at BRIDES magazine! We created a fresh customization of our Yountville design for their Red & Orange “Pick Your Palette” feature in the June/July 2014 issue. The new variation of this crisp, modern design features our cantaloupe letterpress ink for the large monogram, which is complemented by the custom red ink used for the wording and vibrant edge painting. The bright poppy orange envelope with custom red return address and monogram is the perfect finishing touch!
