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!

Suite Spotlight – Pacifica Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Even though the calendar shows that summer is approaching, the weather here in Northern California doesn’t feel anywhere close! To help remind us that it is already June and that blue skies are soon to return and stick around for a while, we chose our Pacifica design for the latest in our Sneak Peek series.


The suite was printed on our brilliant white double-thick premium letterpress paper with our seafoam and tobacco inks on the front and a full bleed weaved grass mat pattern on the back in buttercream ink as the finishing touch.

Alhambra Letterpress Invitation

Our Alhambra invitation design comes to us courtesy of Jori Jackman at Seaside Papery in Coronado, California. The invitation was custom designed for an event at The Prado in San Diego’s Balboa Park which is known for it’s flamboyant Spanish Colonial style architecture.

One of the things I always recall about The Prado is the gorgeous hand painted tile work throughout the restaurant, and also in the outdoor courtyards and magnificent Moorish style fountains surrounding it. We were naturally delighted to have the opportunity to incorporate some of the gorgeous tile details into this inspired invitation. We used a distressed fill on the aqua blue arch that frames the invitation wording to lend a vintage feel that ties in perfectly with the retro script typeface. Also the fresh palette is one of our personal favorites. Enjoy!
