Get the Look – Well Suited Letterpress Invitation Inspiration

We have created a fair amount of note cards, birthday and bar mitzvah invitations, suited for the most dapper of men and we wanted to share some of that inspiration with you. This photograph of Chris Pine for C for Men is a great example of what inspires us. The steely color palette, artisan printing technique and luxe embellishments would leave an impression that no one would forget.

This gentleman’s edition of our Get the Look series features a palette of metal and blue topaz letterpress inks on our thick cotton paper. With a black linen backer card framing the invitation and wrapped in a turtle dove gray pocket folder, this palette could transform any design into a well suited stationery suite.

Client Customization – Sweet Patterned First Birthday Invitation

This sweet first birthday party invitation was for one lucky little girl!  Sent our way by the amazing team at Inscriptions on the Boulvevard in Forth Worth, Texas, this precious piece was originally inspired by our Yountville birthday card design. The original design features a monogram as the focal point and a fine allover pattern accent. Knowing their inspiration, and after hearing the perfect quote they wanted to include, our design team suggested a single-sided version that incorporated the pattern of our Meadowood suite and a delicate border. After modifying the Meadowood pattern from a 2-color design to a 1-color design and letterpress printing it in our shell ink behind a fun mix of playful typefaces in espresso, a custom design was born!
