navy and gold foil birthday invitations

Pulp and Ink helped us to create these navy and gold foil birthday invitations for Tracey’s 50th birthday. Using navy letterpress as a base, they brought in names as well as other important elements in gold matte foil for emphasis. The couple chose to pair a text-only front with a custom pattern on the back to add a playful spin to this look. Finally, a gold matte foil edge tied the color scheme together.

tawny foil wedding invitations with hand calligraphy

Sophia and Sergio worked with Fete Collection to create these tawny foil wedding invitations. The set featured Evelina style hand calligraphy. They paired tawny foil and pewter letterpress with a tawny foil edge to create an overall neutral palette. The couple created this suite their own with nods to their venue in Columbia in mind. Finally, a custom map liner in pewter brought the set together.

botanical blind deboss wedding invitations with foil accents

Becky and Raymond worked with Disenos Personalizados to create the botanical blind deboss wedding invitations. They paired the botanical motif with typography that is justified to the bottom left corner. This allowing space for the textured motif to spread across the invitation. The name of the bride and groom printed in Platinum Shine created a metallic pop while surrounded by Desert letterpress. Finally, the set contains a metallic sand envelope liner to keep the overall color palette consistent in its neutrality.

Gina and Eric worked with Peabody Papers who helped their vision for these gold foil programs and menus come to life. They choose our Gold Shine foil for a pop of color. While they paired this with Black letterpress to keep everything legible and clean. Inspired by our Glamorous Blooms design, this set contains modern design elements as well as contemporary fonts. They kept the menu and programs consistent in terms of font and color so that the wedding maintained an overall cohesive appearance.

calligraphy letterpress wedding invitations in blackberry and deep blue

Each letter within a calligraphed word is completely unique. Molly and Lawrence’s calligraphy letterpress wedding invitations are certainly no exception to that one-of-a-kind nature. The couple worked with our friends at Lee’s Specialty who helped their vision come to life. The future newlyweds decided on a deep purple as well as rich blue color palette. Our Blackberry ink used on the invitation matched that of the reply and brunch cards. Deep Blue used on the welcome dinner and other reply card completed the suite. Additionally, our Opaline marble pattern envelope liner tied this color palette together. As a final wow factor, a matching belly-band in the same marble pattern kept everything in one place.

pink letterpress birthday invitations

A first birthday requires a celebration and an invitation to match! Luciana’s pink letterpress birthday invitations set the tone of her party to come. Her family worked with Magnificent Milestones who helped bring their design to life. The typography printed in Fuchsia letterpress ink kept the design playful as well as light. While a variance of pink hues printed digitally brought different shades to a more monochromatic palette. Finally, a return address digitally printed in Cherry Blossom kept everything harmonious.

marsala letterpress invitations with pops of bronze and blue

Lucienne and Joseph worked with Smitten Boutique to create their marsala letterpress invitations. The design also features pops of Bronze as well as Blue. Wardell Modern served as the inspiration for their set as they carried over the geometrical structure of the original design. The line elements popped in Bronze Shine foil with the rest of the typography printed in Marsala letterpress. A corresponding reply card printed in Marsala kept everything cohesive as well. To add another element of color, the couple decided on Bella Blue outer envelopes and reply envelopes with White addressing. To keep with the geometric theme, they decided on our Sea Stripes pattern in Bronze Shine foil for the envelope liner pattern.

Finally, a striped envelope liner added a geometric flair to this otherwise subtle set. Thanks to the help of our friends at Lee’s Specialty

gold shine wedding invitations with calligraphy accents

Amy and Joshua worked with Soiree Signatures to create their gold shine wedding invitations with calligraphy accents. Sarah Hanna’s Honoured calligraphy style gleamed brightly in gold foil along with the monogram. The secondary wording printed in Black letterpress kept everything clean. The Bella Currant paper brought a pop of color to this set as well as the Bella Old Rose envelope. This suite truly shows how color can be used in different ways without incorporating another ink color.
