Suite Spotlight – Greenwich Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Spring is the perfect time for change and new growth! We’re excited to reveal the first of four new invitations added to our Custom Wedding Portfolio II. These new wedding invitation suites include designs that range from traditional and vintage to modern and whimsical! We have also added to our custom elements {90 new motifs, 20 new monograms and 63 new patterns} to give you more to play with when you’re creating your very own wedding stationery.

Our first new wedding invitation suite, Greenwich, celebrates the best of letterpress printing by pairing elements that showcase the letterpress impression with thick and thin lines. Details like the script and headline typefaces as well as the delicate, winding frame and surrounding lush pattern, make this suite perfect for a couple set on designing every detail of their wedding day. The tonal color palette of lavender and caramel letterpress inks lends to the overall romantic feel of this sweet design.

Working with our exclusive retailer The Village Invites, the final wedding invitation design featured an elegant script in gold foil stamping on a soft white card. The oversized invitation is simplicity at its finest, putting the shimmering gold foil script in the spotlight.

Client Customization – Charming Elegant Date

The big date! Every couple falls in love with their wedding date and our Elegant Date design celebrates exactly that. Our exclusive retailer, Kyle Fine Stationery in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, helped their client design a new take on our Elegant Date design. We love seeing couples take advantage of our complimentary custom design process that is built into our Custom Wedding Portfolio program – especially when it results in a gorgeous new design like this one!

This couple chose to keep the format of the original design that allows the wedding date to stretch across the card as the focal point. Changing the font used for the date, to a script with a thinner line, gives the card an overall lighter feel. To add depth, an all-over cross-hatch pattern, originally found on our Cloverdale suite, was layered beneath the copy in a beautiful robin’s egg letterpress ink. The final personal touch is the charming dragonfly motif perfectly placed under the arched copy.
