Client Customization – Simply Elegant Save the Date

Today’s Client Customization is a great lesson in keeping it simple! Our long-time retailer The Stovall Collection did a beautiful job in creating this custom save the date for a local soiree. Using our Kensington response card design as inspiration, they let the fonts and minimal details speak for themselves.

Starting with our Savoy natural white double-thick stock, they added the circular frame at the top in reflective gold foil with a seafoam letterpress accent surrounding the “save the date” messaging printed in olive letterpress ink.

The rest of the card includes only the most important details with a mix of fonts. The simple design allows for the date to stand out, which is the goal of a save the date card. Keeping things simple on this card makes for an overall elegant feel with lots of breathing room for all of the design elements. We’re loving this custom design!

Client Customization – Custom Color Palette

Color is one of the best ways to customize your wedding stationery. If you find yourself thinking about that one specific invitation design you pinned and love, “if only it was in your wedding color palette,” we want you to know that with our Custom Wedding Portfolio II you can always change the colors on the cards – for no additional cost. We created our custom design program assuming that every couple would, at the very least, want to personalize the color palette.

This customization of our Arbor wedding suite is a fun example of exactly that! Pairing our spring letterpress ink with a bright and cheerful magenta foil makes this design unique to this couple and their event.

The choice of design and playful color palette are perfect for this cocktail party invitation. Using color to express the personalities of the hosts or the playfulness of a specific event are a great way to get your guests excited about the big day, not to mention, differentiate the different auxiliary events from the wedding day!

Do you want to play with color? Is there a design in our album that you would love to see in a different color combination than it is shown? Let us know! We would love to work with you to find your perfect palette.

Designer’s Desktop {Fairfield Save the Date}

When viewing any of the designs on our website, be sure to check out the “view custom variations of this suite” link on each page under “inspiration”. If you’re looking for unique ways to customize one of our designs, this page is full of inspiration for you!

Our Fairfield wedding invitation suite is shown with a trifold save the date on the main page. If you’re looking for a non-folded save the date, one that keeps things simple and just shares the most important details with your guests, you will be happy to know that we’ve already done the design work for you! Shown with the custom variations for Fairfield, is this pretty little save the date card:

Using the same pattern as a frame along with the striking angled copy, this design just might be the perfect fit!

Our custom variations also show different print methods and combinations to match any budget as well, so be sure not to miss this gem when pulling all of your wedding stationery ideas together. If you need help mapping things out, or if you already have your favorites selected, contact us and we can start pulling the visuals together for your custom wedding suite!

Client Customization – Letterpress + Foil Wedding Program

Referrals are the biggest complement! We love that our exclusive retailer, Parchment Fine Papers in Nantucket, has asked us to help design wedding stationery for multiple members of this family. We love that we get to be a small part in the big events that highlight the lives of our clients. The best part, is that we also get to see a different side of each personality and event when a client takes advantage of our free custom design process. Our Custom Wedding Portfolio II is full of inspiration, but also allows you to personalize your stationery for your event, making it unique!

This wedding program has an overall traditional and classic feel with the layout, format and fonts chosen, but this couple personalized the details by choosing our nautical twilight letterpress ink, a matching ribbon detail and to top it off, a reflective silver foil anchor on the cover to underscore the wedding location.
