Client Customization – Classic Foil Stamped Menu

This custom menu design is elegance at its best! This couple chose the very classic reflective silver foil for their entire menu card. The traditional fonts used for the menu are beautifully balanced (and enhanced) by the decorative frame and delicate pattern surrounding it. These details, borrowed from our Larkspur wedding invitation suite, are a beautiful way to greet guests at their seat as they find their place at the start of your wedding reception.


No matter the color palette you choose for your Larkspur wedding invitation, this design is easily customized with any palette to suit your event. You can mix foil with letterpress, bold and neutral ink colors, and this design is a sure-fire recipe for a gorgeous wedding reception!

We all know that most wedding couples labor over decisions such as the menu for their wedding day so why not share every detail you designed with your guests? They will surely appreciate your attention to detail so don’t forget to share it with them. Get in touch with us for tips on putting your menu design together!

Client Customization – Letterpress + Foil Wedding Program

Referrals are the biggest complement! We love that our exclusive retailer, Parchment Fine Papers in Nantucket, has asked us to help design wedding stationery for multiple members of this family. We love that we get to be a small part in the big events that highlight the lives of our clients. The best part, is that we also get to see a different side of each personality and event when a client takes advantage of our free custom design process. Our Custom Wedding Portfolio II is full of inspiration, but also allows you to personalize your stationery for your event, making it unique!


This wedding program has an overall traditional and classic feel with the layout, format and fonts chosen, but this couple personalized the details by choosing our nautical twilight letterpress ink, a matching ribbon detail and to top it off, a reflective silver foil anchor on the cover to underscore the wedding location.

Client Customization – Letterpress Beach Wedding Invitation

This beach wedding invitation makes a bold statement with a large motif printed behind classic fonts. The graphics are large, but do not take over the entire suite since they are printed in our soft powder blue letterpress ink. Paired with our taupe letterpress ink for the type, we think this softer version of traditional black or silver really adds to the beachy vibe of this suite.


Sent to us by our exclusive retailer Lettres, this design is one that is easily customized. If you’re having a garden wedding or getting married under an oak tree, we can easily swap out the beach motifs for florals or a gorgeous oak and acorn. We would love to work with you, so contact us, to find your signature style.

Client Customization – Classic Romance

Our retailer, The Social Type, helped this bride and groom create a classically romantic wedding invitation suite with {in our opinion} the perfect amount of decorative embellishments.

The design on the main invitation incorporates a very traditional look with a Varnish letterpress printed floral motif in each corner framing the classic mix of script and sans serif fonts. The extra touch here is that those restrained florals on the front of the card meander onto the back of the extra-thick, duplexed card in an overall floral pattern. What a great way to make a design statement on a usually-unused  portion of an invitation card. Another unexpected detail is a tear-off response card with those flowing florals again stretching over both ends of the cards.


Extra-thick duplexed cardstock, subtle Varnish for your favorite decorative motif, creating an all-over pattern on the back of the card, a fun perforated response card … the perfect combination for creating a classically romantic wedding invitation suite. With this much attention to detail, the wedding day is sure to be one that guests will not soon forget.

Are you ready to create your unforgettable wedding invitation suite? We would love to help you create a custom design for your wedding day that incorporates the decorative details that you love most.

Client Customization – Traditional Custom Foil Wedding Invitation

This wedding invitation is what our design process is all about! Along with the help of our exclusive retailer, Posh Parties, this couple pulled details from different designs shown in our Custom Wedding Portfolio II to create a brand new design … one that is personalized to them and resulted in a truly elegant and beautiful wedding invitation suite. We love seeing creative minds at work and being part of that “a-ha moment” when everything falls into place and feels exactly right!


This design was first inspired by our Monterey wedding invitation suite, which includes a color-contrasting belly band that acts as a reveal for the names of the wedding couple or the wedding date. For this version, the couple selected a shimmering pyrite colored paper that hints of a graceful champagne color. Keeping things traditional, they then chose platinum foil on our double-thick natural white stock with platinum gilded edges. The platinum foil was used for their traditional wording as well as the framing details borrowed from our Hamilton wedding invitation suite.
