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.

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Emily & Erik’s Nantucket Wedding

One of the first steps of wedding planning is finding the perfect location. Once you have that decision made, everything else seems to fall in place. When that location is a special place like Nantucket, we find that many couples can’t wait to share this detail with their guests.

We’re thrilled to share a real wedding with you today of one of those very special weddings in Nantucket, photographed by Brea McDonald.

Emily and Erik worked with our exclusive retailer Parchment and choose a traditional layout for their wedding invitations and prominently displayed a hand-crafted map of Nantucket Island for their letterpress stationery. With the map placed perfectly at the top center of the invitation, guests were sure to take note at the first glance that this was going to be a memorable affair.

Their wedding stationery was letterpress printed on our Savoy Natural White stock in a classic and nautical pairing of French Blue + Marine inks. With a minimalist double line border framing the main invitation card, the lighter blue of the island motif and the names of the bride and groom really stand out. Rounding out the suite are additional nautical motifs that illustrate the uniqueness and charm of Nantucket.

Client Customization – Neutral + Modern Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We love the way the neutral color palette of this customized version of our Auburn wedding invitation suite highlights our favorite details of this design. The graphic elements — a bold font used for the couples names, the large ampersand, a modern take on the wedding date, a simple single-line frame — really stand out and highlight the typography and the charming couple and their upcoming union.

A.M. Inspiration {hearts and hides letterpress invitation}

This week we’re sharing two unique pieces of stationery. With a 50th wedding anniversary save the date on Wednesday and now today, inspiration comes from another one of the children’s birthday invitations we’ve designed and printed. Our first love is weddings, but weddings lead to things like wedding anniversaries and birthday parties for the littlest members of your family. We want to be there for all of it and help you express yourself through graphic design, paper and stationery!

When my daughter expressed that she really wanted to incorporate touches of animal prints in her party decor and party invitation, I came up with a great solution. Feeling that animal prints might be a little too grown up for a 7-year-old, I decided to create a pattern myself. With the custom pattern, I used hearts to form the pattern and make it a bit more childlike. At the time, she was obsessed with shades of purple, so we incorporated this color palette and used fun san serif fonts and a frame to complete the look!

Client Customization – Foil Stamped Timeline Save the Date

Most of us mark our lives with milestone moments and your wedding day is usually a pretty big point on your life and relationship timeline. Today’s Client Customization illustrates key moments on this couple’s timeline. Using vintage motifs printed in gold foil, this custom timeline tells a story and ultimately invites close friends and family to quite a celebration – 50 years of marriage! And yes, the gold foil was a must for this Golden Anniversary save the date!

CC-TIMELINE-STD

We love to think of visual ways to tell a story. A timeline like this, or a special floral or pattern are all things we can incorporate into your wedding stationery design. This save the date was designed with the visual timeline save the date, telling the story of this sweet couple. And, the invitation, featuring a traditional feel, features a balance of script and all-caps serif font. The finishing detail is the gold edge painting to highlight the luxuriously thick card.

We can’t wait to hear the details that define your story. Contact us or visit one of our exclusive retailers to start the design of your wedding stationery.
