Designer’s Desktop {Kentfield Rehearsal Dinner Insert}

We began our Designer Desktop series to share hidden gems that will inspire you to create a unique design for your wedding invitation suite. These are designs we love, but have not had the opportunity to print quite yet.

One of these treasures is our Kentfield rehearsal dinner invitation. This petite card was designed as an accessory card to the main invitation. Without a separate mailing envelope, a rehearsal dinner invitation included with the wedding invitation can be any size you wish.

We all know how special the group who attends your rehearsal and rehearsal dinner is, so why not create an invitation for that event that feels just as special? This two color design includes the all-over floral pattern from our Kentfield invitation on this small square card with a pretty layout displaying multiple fonts that make it memorable.

Can we help you create a unique design for the people closest to you; a design for showing that close group of friends and family how much you cherish them and appreciate them standing by your side? Contact us or one of our retailers and we will help you define every detail of your wedding stationery suite.

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.

Client Customization – Lovely Lavender Letterpress Invitation

We love the way the subtle lavender touches add dimension to this Vreeland wedding suite customization. This invitation utilizes, what we call in letterpress printing, a “fill.” Looking at the etched floral motif, you can see that there is a solid layer of lavender ink printed beneath it, which gives it a hint of color and differentiates it from the blind printed lattice in the background.

Starting with that lovely touch on the main invitation card, this suite includes many other pretty layers that will be sure to have guests excited for the big day. The neutral color palette, elegant shimmery pocket folder, the different uses of the signature etched floral motif and the luxe belly band wrap up the entire invitation into one pretty package.

Client Customization – Letterpress Magnolia Invitation

Sometimes it’s the smallest touches that have the biggest impact. We love the large magnolia floral in opposing corners in our barely-there varnish letterpress ink on this wedding invitation. But, it’s the color selected for the invitation wording that made us take a second glance. With an overall botanical theme, the deep garden green is a stellar choice. It is that “traditional with a twist” detail that we’re often talking about.

A.M. Inspiration {brights and books}

Translating a client’s dreams and ideas into print is one of my favorite things to do. It’s such a rewarding process! It’s no different designing for an engaged couple, a baby announcement or a birthday invitation … even when it’s for my very own daughter. Meryn has always been a big fan of books, so when we were coming up with ideas for her birthday party, we decided to have it at Storybook Land. Storybook Land is an incredible amusement park for little ones with themes throughout the park that are relative to classic storybook fables. I still love it today as much as I did when I was little!

With the party destination set, I turned to Meryn for her thoughts on color palette. It was no surprise that she selected bright, neon colors. We decided to combine the bright, neon palette with a fun liner pattern {reminiscent of art created by a child} and a ditsy floral. We designed the main birthday invitation to resemble a classic storybook cover, complete with fun, childlike fonts {called Bookeyed Suzanne and Bookeyed Jack!}. To complete this sweet set, we designed a bookmark favor printed in three colors on both sides.

We would love to help the next time you’re designing an invitation for one of your loved ones or as you celebrate your love! Contact us or visit your local retailer to start the process of turning your dreams and ideas into print!
