Suite Spotlight – Kentfield Letterpress Wedding Invitation Suite

Here in Northern California it’s been a few weeks since we’ve seen any rain. In fact, there’s been just enough sunshine to start wearing open-toed shoes. We know there is more winter weather in store, but it doesn’t keep us from daydreaming about spring. Today’s inspiration board, highlighting our Kentfield suite, is not only a reflection of this gorgeous letterpress printed suite, but it’s also a reflection of what’s in our hearts knowing that spring and even more sunshine are just around the corner.

Our Kentfield design is perfect for the romantic couple. Whether your venue is outdoors like scenes from our inspiration board or in a dramatic ballroom, the floral design surrounding the text and frame adds a soft touch. Letterpress printed in our buttercream and metal inks, this combination gives the illusion that the French engraving cuts and timeless typography are sitting atop a bouquet of begonias. Each card incorporates the same design elements, but each in a unique way to add interest to this enduring design.

Suite Spotlight – Pacifica Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Even though the calendar shows that summer is approaching, the weather here in Northern California doesn’t feel anywhere close! To help remind us that it is already June and that blue skies are soon to return and stick around for a while, we chose our Pacifica design for the latest in our Sneak Peek series.

The vintage inspired, breezy and warm inspiration board turned in to a letterpress wedding suite that would be ideal for a Cuban or Hawaiian event, but could also be customized for any vintage yet contemporary venue with an island feel.

One of our favorite pieces of inspiration was the Frings Brothers logo with its clean and sophisticated vintage-cigar-box style. We found a font designed by John Downer that was a perfect compliment to the design we were looking to create.

The suite was printed on our brilliant white double-thick premium letterpress paper with our seafoam and tobacco inks on the front and a full bleed weaved grass mat pattern on the back in buttercream ink as the finishing touch.
