Designer’s Desktop {Marinwood Wedding Invitation Suite}

Our Marinwood trifold save the date is one of our most popular and asked-for designs. Falling right in line with the casual elegance and playful feel of the save the date, the coordinating wedding invitation for this design is equally as stunning.

We incorporated the lattice pattern and detailed florals in new ways on the invitation suite to mix things up. Knowing that most families like to keep the main wedding invitation on the traditional side, we paired a simple border with the florals to create a frame around the classic fonts. For that wow-factor, we letterpress printed the lattice pattern on the entire back-side of the invitation card.

Keeping the theme going, we sprinkled in elements in different ways on each of the accessory cards. Our Marinwood invitation suite is an example of how much we love using the same design elements in different ways. This is one of the main perks of our Custom Wedding Portfolio. You can choose the elements you want and we can design the layout any way you choose without incurring extra design charges.

If you love one of our designs but want to change the card shape or layout, just let us know, we would love to turn your design ideas into a unique printed piece for your wedding day!

Client Customization – Classic Romance

Our retailer, The Social Type, helped this bride and groom create a classically romantic wedding invitation suite with {in our opinion} the perfect amount of decorative embellishments.

The design on the main invitation incorporates a very traditional look with a Varnish letterpress printed floral motif in each corner framing the classic mix of script and sans serif fonts. The extra touch here is that those restrained florals on the front of the card meander onto the back of the extra-thick, duplexed card in an overall floral pattern. What a great way to make a design statement on a usually-unused  portion of an invitation card. Another unexpected detail is a tear-off response card with those flowing florals again stretching over both ends of the cards.

Extra-thick duplexed cardstock, subtle Varnish for your favorite decorative motif, creating an all-over pattern on the back of the card, a fun perforated response card … the perfect combination for creating a classically romantic wedding invitation suite. With this much attention to detail, the wedding day is sure to be one that guests will not soon forget.

Are you ready to create your unforgettable wedding invitation suite? We would love to help you create a custom design for your wedding day that incorporates the decorative details that you love most.

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.
