Designer’s Desktop {Meadowood Wedding Invitation}

Our Meadowood save the date journal design is popular with couples that have a lot of information to share with their weddings guests. The multi-page format allows you to share weekend schedules, accommodation details and travel information.

Once the save the date is out and your guests have all of the details they need to enjoy your wedding weekend, it is time to design and send your wedding invitation. For our Meadowood suite, we designed a wedding invitation card that features a horizontal layout to match the save the date. The traditional wording is framed with a thin border of the signature Meadowood pattern in two colors of letterpress.

This design can be customized with your wedding color palette and with your favorite fonts and embellishments (like edge painting and envelope liners!). If you’re inspired, contact us to personalize this design for your wedding day.

Client Customization – Modern Monogram

What better way to kick off your new union than with a New Years Eve wedding!? We love that this couple selected this special date and the details they chose to adorn their wedding invitation. We all know that the invitation sets the tone for your guests and gives them a taste of what to expect on your wedding day.

This couple chose a very playful designs for their save the date card with effervescent bubbles framing the wedding day details. When it came to the wedding invitation, they used the bubbles sparingly on the accessory cards and left the main invitation to make a classic statement. An oversized monogram in platinum foil tops the horizontal oriented card. Finishing touches include a platinum gilded edge on the double-thick stock and a platinum envelope liner.


This suite is such a wonderful way of keeping it simple. The monotone color palette and modern touches make an elegant and refined statement.

Client Customization – Foil Floral Wedding Invitation

With the arrival of the new year, we have a wonderful bundle of new Client Customizations for you. We love sharing the designs of our real clients because they often tell a unique story of the couple that created the design. It’s also the best source of inspiration – seeing what other brides and grooms are designing for their wedding invitations.

This square shape is perfect for a large decorative floral spray and traditional wording in a classic layout. Silver letterpress ink is used on for the wording, which is a combination of an all caps font paired with a graceful script for key details. The use of just one color for all of the wording keeps this look classic.

Our favorite element on this invitation is the orchid spray graphic printed in pearl foil. Paired with the brilliant white card, this design is the perfect example of restraint and glamour – perfect for a Palm Beach wedding! The thoughtful finishing touches include platinum painted edges and a platinum envelope liner.

Foil Stamped 40th Birthday Invitation

We are back today to share details and images of the invitation you caught a peek of on Bravo’s My Fab 40th. This very special event required a stand-out invitation. For the main invitation card, the centerpiece of any suite, Rose Gold foil was selected to highlight the striking type treatment featuring an Art Deco font in various sizes along with horizontal lines to show off the foil and highlight the wording of the invitation.

With the Rose Gold foil stamping on the Savoy Brilliant White letterpress stock for the front, a shimmery pale Coral card stock was selected for the back of the card. The two colors duplexed together made for a luxe card with a thick, board-like feel when held in your hand. The shimmery Coral on the back of the card was the backdrop for a custom all-over pattern. This new pattern {Pattern-156 in our Design Library} was printed in Black and Rose Gold foil to emphasize the thick and thin lines and add contrast to this dynamic pattern.

To top it all off, the invitation was edge painted in solid black to frame each side. The invitation was mailed in a black envelope with a shimmery Coral envelope liner and more of the striking type treatment from the invitation printed on the return address in more Rose Gold foil.


We do have a limited number of samples available. To see a sample of this invitation in person, just contact one of our retailers and request a copy. Retailers, that goes for you too! If you would like a copy, just send us a quick email or give us a call.
