Designer’s Desktop {Save the Date Photo Card}

Our design team is always creating new variations of the designs displayed in our wedding album. We wanted to share some of our favorite versions that we have created over the years with the hopes that they will inspire you when designing your wedding stationery!

Two of our most popular Save the Date designs are the Marinwood and Auburn styles. The custom design below, combines these two cards into one, brand new design. Using the trifold format from Marinwood, this design blends a front panel announcing the big day, a middle panel featuring a charming engagement photo and a third panel displaying essential details for guests. Inspired by the vintage letterpress wood type look of our Auburn suite, this save the date makes a statement with bold photography in a soothing subtle color palette.

Client Customization – Metallic Foil Holiday Card

An all-metallic color palette is such a great choice for the holidays. We especially love how this client customization mixes three different metallics – copper, silver and platinum.

With the help of our exclusive retailer The Stovall Collection, this family started with a thick brilliant white card stock and layered in a festive seasonal pattern of pine boughs in our copper foil. They repeated the color and pattern on the envelope liner, which reflects the abundance of natural beauty during the winter season. They then chose satin silver foil for the wording, making their holiday greeting stand out against the background pattern. With a place for their holiday photo and a platinum colored envelope, this card is ready for the mailboxes of friends and family!

Client Customization – Elegant Letterpress + Foil Holiday Card

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” This letterpress and foil holiday is the epitome of this iconic line. Our retailer, The Stovall Collection, worked with this family to create a unique holiday card that features elegant letterpress, an overall festive feel and a space for their annual family photo.

CC-FLINN-HOLIDAY

This custom holiday card features an all-over pattern of leaping reindeer (featuring Rudolf!) in our subtle varnish ink, like footsteps in the snow, layered under the holiday greeting printed in crimson red foil. The whimsical font chosen for the quote and the family name gives the card a festive feel. All will be complete when the family adds their adorable family photograph within the simple foil frame.

Client Customization – Presidio Inspired Letterpress Save the Date Card

This charming save the date card is one of our favorite custom designs. The bride and groom went through every detail in our Custom Wedding Portfolio II and chose their favorite design elements, letterpress ink colors and format to create their very own version of our trifold save the date card.

Heavily inspired by our Presidio wedding invitation suite, incorporating multiple design elements as well as the letterpress ink color palette, the final design is one that will have guests thrilled to be invited to this destination wedding.  The custom teal, inviting sea glass green and golden saffron letterpress inks are perfectly layered to show off the destination map, handsome frames and graphic center panel that will ultimately display the couple’s engagement photo.

Client Customization – New Letterpress Palette for Marinwood Trifold Save the Date

Color gracefully complements the romantic, vintage feel of our Marinwood trifold save the date in this design customization. To personalize their save the date, Kara and Drayton chose our papaya and taupe letterpress inks and swapped out the original trellis pattern for a classic herringbone – ideal for announcing the date for your big day and sharing accommodation and travel information with your guests.
