Client Customization – Presidio Inspired Letterpress Save the Date Card

This charming save the date card is one of our favorite custom designs. The bride and groom went through every detail in our Custom Wedding Portfolio II and chose their favorite design elements, letterpress ink colors and format to create their very own version of our trifold save the date card.

Heavily inspired by our Presidio wedding invitation suite, incorporating multiple design elements as well as the letterpress ink color palette, the final design is one that will have guests thrilled to be invited to this destination wedding.  The custom teal, inviting sea glass green and golden saffron letterpress inks are perfectly layered to show off the destination map, handsome frames and graphic center panel that will ultimately display the couple’s engagement photo.


It doesn’t get any more personal than this! And the best part? All of this custom design is included with your order, at no additional cost, when you design your wedding invitation suite through one of our exclusive retailers.

Suite Spotlight – Stone Harbor Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We’re excited to share the third brand new wedding invitation suite that we recently added to our Custom Wedding Portfolio II – Stone Harbor! For those of you that love details, this suite is the perfect starting point. It has layers of elements that can easily be swapped out for your favorite details to create a brand new look.

Our versatile Stone Harbor wedding invitation suite is all about texture. From the subtle blind chevron pattern printed behind the navy letterpress text, to the silver metallic rope pattern on the colored paper bellyband and the repeating nautical knot pattern on the decorative envelope liner, this suite has it all! We’ve chosen motifs and a color palette with a nautical feel, but this sophisticated suite could easily be customized with a monogram, palm motif and tropical color palette for an island affair.

Suite Spotlight – Greenwich Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Spring is the perfect time for change and new growth! We’re excited to reveal the first of four new invitations added to our Custom Wedding Portfolio II. These new wedding invitation suites include designs that range from traditional and vintage to modern and whimsical! We have also added to our custom elements {90 new motifs, 20 new monograms and 63 new patterns} to give you more to play with when you’re creating your very own wedding stationery.

Our first new wedding invitation suite, Greenwich, celebrates the best of letterpress printing by pairing elements that showcase the letterpress impression with thick and thin lines. Details like the script and headline typefaces as well as the delicate, winding frame and surrounding lush pattern, make this suite perfect for a couple set on designing every detail of their wedding day. The tonal color palette of lavender and caramel letterpress inks lends to the overall romantic feel of this sweet design.

Client Customization – Letterpress Beach Wedding Invitation

This Palm Beach Monogram customization is the perfect example of how to play with two key design elements – scale and layout. We love the eye-catching results that can be achieved when it’s done right! Haley and Ryan worked with Lindsey at Mrs. Post Fine Stationery, one of our exclusive retailers in Memphis, on this custom design. Their choice of a large palm tree off to one side and the slanted text (a nod to our Fairfield invitation) make for a stunning impression for their guests when they open this delightful invitation and prepare for what is sure to be a memorable day!
