Suite Spotlight – Kensington Foil + Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Our Kensington suite is a star around here, not just because of the delicate foil stamped border in reflective gold foil, but it is the perfect marriage of letterpress and foil on one piece. This beautiful balance of letterpress and foil on a single card creates a gorgeous impression from a distance, but also begs you to hold it in your hand and run your fingers over the deep letterpress and shift the card to catch the light on the foil.

Inspired by the styles of the 30s and 40s, this suite sets the tone for an affair that is stylish and classic with its fonts and motifs in a mix of bright fuchsia letterpress ink next to the reflective gold foil. Each piece incorporates a different twist on the delicate foil stamped border and is also edged in our fuchsia edge painting, which perfectly frames and finishes each card.

And the inspiration board … I have no words beyond “it takes my breath away!” Gorgeous! Our design team really outdid themselves with this one!

The Kensington Suite

The strength of this design carries it through all of the different color combinations we’ve printed it in. Some of our favorites are satin silver foil and pool letterpress and edging inks, traditional black letterpress with gold foil and even allover copper foil. You really can’t miss with this design. What do you think? What letterpress, edging and foil combination would you like to see this printed in? Take a peek at our custom design elements to see all of your options.

Holidays and gift giving are tons of fun when you work with a creative group. This past Valentine’s Day was no exception and was full of charming designer details. Heather handmade valentine bags filled with sweet treats (and displaying one of our favorite puns - suite!) /1/ while Matt’s gift included a little card /2/ that celebrates the love between Mr. & Mrs. Eaves (two of our favorite fonts). Maybe it’s just February, but pink seems to be everywhere we look lately. This image of pink blossoms /3/ was taken in downtown Petaluma and Pinky’s Pizza /4/ is just down the street. How can you not have a little love for that vintage typography?

Our press room in New York continued turning out amazing print work this week. We can’t get enough of this image showing the plate for a custom Carneros mixed with Cloverdale-inspired save the date being inked /5/. Isn’t the vibrant fuchsia color on the rollers /6/ to die for?!  Always delighted to see the art of letterpress in action, we also adore the side-by-side shots of our Bloom suite – on press and finished invitation ready to send to the couple! /7-8/

We are enjoying early spring weather here in Northern California. We hope that your weekend is sunny too – whether these images brighten your winter weather or if you too are enjoying early spring with us!
