Suite Spotlight – Stone Harbor Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We’re excited to share the third brand new wedding invitation suite that we recently added to our Custom Wedding Portfolio II – Stone Harbor! For those of you that love details, this suite is the perfect starting point. It has layers of elements that can easily be swapped out for your favorite details to create a brand new look.

Our versatile Stone Harbor wedding invitation suite is all about texture. From the subtle blind chevron pattern printed behind the navy letterpress text, to the silver metallic rope pattern on the colored paper bellyband and the repeating nautical knot pattern on the decorative envelope liner, this suite has it all! We’ve chosen motifs and a color palette with a nautical feel, but this sophisticated suite could easily be customized with a monogram, palm motif and tropical color palette for an island affair.

Suite Spotlight – Stratford Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Last week we shared the first of four brand new suites added to our Custom Wedding Portfolio II. Today we’re looking at the inspiration behind our take on classic black and white! 

Elegance at its best, our Stratford wedding invitation incorporates a traditional font combination in jet black letterpress ink framed by a romantic, detailed damask pattern in a subtle varnish. The “icing on the cake” is the coordinating invitation envelope in a textured black linen with our white foil stamping on the decorative return address. With white calligraphy, this suite is sure to delight guests the second they receive the mail. This alluring design is ideal for the couple looking for a contemporary take on the black tie wedding.

Get The Look – Floral Beauty

Our entire team can get pretty excited about a unique color palette! Today’s Get the Look post is all about bold color and romance – a perfect combination for a wedding invitation! We’re taken by the shades of purple and lavender paired with deep fuchsia pink in this fashion image. The balance of softness and bold color was something we would love to duplicate on paper.

4.29-GTL

To begin, our design team envisioned the wedding invitation wording printed in our cool metal grey letterpress ink on a thick luxe board card in a shimmery white micah. With a bright fuchsia painted edge to rival the lipstick shade on the model and bold foil stamping in our majestic purple to match the bright florals, this combination of elements really highlights this romantic color palette.

If you’ve chosen a unique color palette for your wedding and wedding stationery, visit one of our retailers to translate your palette into paper! We have a large selection of letterpress ink colors, foil, paper and envelope liners for  you to highlight the colors that will be helping you define your wedding day!

Client Customization – Letterpress Beach Wedding Invitation

This Palm Beach Monogram customization is the perfect example of how to play with two key design elements – scale and layout. We love the eye-catching results that can be achieved when it’s done right! Haley and Ryan worked with Lindsey at Mrs. Post Fine Stationery, one of our exclusive retailers in Memphis, on this custom design. Their choice of a large palm tree off to one side and the slanted text (a nod to our Fairfield invitation) make for a stunning impression for their guests when they open this delightful invitation and prepare for what is sure to be a memorable day!

Get The Look – Castle Ruins

I know we’re all hoping that the warmth of spring will soon rise out of the cold winter. This striking image represents that joyous moment – one we wanted to recreate in a color and swatch palette. This combination would transform your stationery and would be the perfect way to give your wedding guests a glimpse of what is to come on your wedding day!

GTL-3.25.15

Our designers have paired a deep fuchsia pink letterpress ink and an elegantly duplexed card stock in London Fog. The neutral background of the cool gray invitation is finished with a pop of warm color for the painted edge. To complete the package, they have picked a black unryu decorative paper liner to add texture.
