modern silver foil bar mitzvah invitations for a new york setting

We worked with our friends at Ipanema Press to create these modern silver foil Bar Mitzvah invitations for Jake’s big day. Our No. 10 panel became the canvas for this typography based layout. The Bella Blue backdrop allowed the Silver Shine foil as well as Jake’s name to pop off the page. They kept the reply card clean in Navy letterpress ink with a reply envelope coordinating in Bella Blue. Lastly, the envelope liner captured the New York skyline in a sketchy style to keep the set playful while still sophisticated.

silver foil wedding invitations with calligraphy accents

Our Townsend design has sparked many customizations and we’re excited to share Hayley and Gregory’s version. Their silver foil wedding invitations with calligraphy created an elegant impression for the event to come. Sarah Hanna’s Honoured style shining brightly in Silver Matte foil adds a personalized accent to the set. The remainder of the text as well as the border printed in Charcoal letterpress keeps a cool color palette. The reply card, rehearsal dinner card, and a coordinating thank you card also contain the same border. Finally, to finish the suite, they added an envelope liner in our geometric pearse pattern. Thanks to the help of Papery and Cakery for bringing this suite together!

tawny matte wedding invitations with vintage touches

Our friends at Mulberry Market helped us to these Tawny Matte wedding invitations for Patricia and Christoper. Their June wedding held at St. Agnes Cathedral required an invitation with traditional elements to match. They decided to keep their script font in foil with the rest of the elements in our Prussian Blue letterpress ink. The reply card as well as the reception card followed suit in terms of color palette. To mimic the envelope liner, the details card used a vintage print backdrop with Prussian Blue letterpress ink overtop. Finally, a belly-band kept all the insert cards together with a monogram tag added with a final foil touch.

introducing wright: minimalist inspired wedding invitation

Andrea Streeter added a minimalist inspired wedding invitation to our line-up when she created the Wright design. A simple black and white color palette allowed for a more playful design layout. Crisp black letterpress and a Bella Cotton backdrop in White set the tone of the design. Non-traditional typography easily keeps the viewer’s eye moving around the page. While an organic line added right down the middle breaks everything into different parts. The overall design nods towards a mid-century aesthetic and keeps a retro vibe in mind. We can imagine this design used for a wedding filled with quirk and old souls.

gold matte foil wedding invitations with playful envelope liner

We are always excited to see the Deveril customizations that come through our shop. These gold matte foil wedding invitations kept the understated feeling of the original design. The reply as well as details cards printed in Navy letterpress kept the color palette consistent with the Bella Blue backdrop of the invitation. Christa and Ian chose to add a touch of playfulness to their suite through the envelope liner. They did so by choosing our geometric Ardea pattern printed in Gold Matte foil. Finally, the couple worked with our flagship store in Manhattan who helped bring their invitation vision to life.

introducing pressed: nature inspired letterpress design

We’re excited to introduce this nature inspired letterpress design called Pressed by Sierra Detrick. We’ll let Sierra take it from here to share more about her vision came to life. “I wanted to pair a naturalistic feel with something very traditional. I actually took a walk around my neighborhood and picked up greenery that I found interesting. A big thanks to all my friendly neighbors who let me hijack some of their plants! From there, I flattened each article, rolled over them with ink and pressed them onto paper. I did this many many many times. I’m in love with color, intricate pieces of art and anything derived from nature.”

floridian inspired wedding invitations in gold foil

Our Cora design served as the template for Hanae and Drew’s Floridian inspired wedding invitations in gold foil. They worked with our friends at Wynwood Letterpress who helped their invitation vision come to life. Shades of blue botanicals created an organic watercolor frame. Further, this element added a softer side to a more structured typography layout in Gold Matte foil. Finally, a custom envelope liner pattern featuring watercolor palms enhanced the Floridian feel of this suite.

modern black letterpress wedding invitations featuring a playful script accent

These modern black letterpress wedding invitations featuring a playful script accent set a contemporary tone. The couple worked with our friends at Penny Post who helped shape this Splash customization. Originally, the design featured a vertical layout, but they decided to change it up by using a horizontal canvas. Similarly, the set-up of the reply and details cards mimicked the overall design of the invitation as well. As the final touch, a solid Hunter green envelope liner added a splash of color to this tonal set.

floral watercolor wedding invitations for an ireland setting

Jennifer and James worked with Appleberry Press who helped bring their floral watercolor wedding invitations to life. When guests open the envelope, they’ll find typography in Charcoal letterpress and Rose Gold foil. As a guest flips the invitation over, they’ll find an illustration of the Adare Manor. The illustration surrounded by watercolor florals as well as Rose Gold foil accents gave the design depth and dynamic interest. Finally, the custom envelope liner carried a similar pattern that also combined rose gold and digital methods.

photo save the dates with copper foil accents for rustic wedding

The season of engagements and save the dates is now upon us! We worked with Silberman Brown Stationers to create these photo save the dates with copper foil accents. Becky and Andrew married in Leavenworth, Washington this past September. A village in the Cascade Mountains surrounded by Alpine-style buildings, Nutcracker Museum displays as well as all the trees you could possibly imagine. It’s safe to say they needed a save the date that would match this aesthetic. Pictured in the middle are Becky and Andrew front and center walking through the rugged terrain. This image certainly set the stage for their wedding day to come. Copper Matte foil used as the border around the photo and for some of the typography added a metallic accent. Last but not least, watercolor tree imagery topped off the design.

letterpress celebration invitations with rose gold accents

Our flagship store helped Mia and Joseph create these letterpress celebration invitations with rose gold accents. Inspired by our Townsend design, they chose Pale Gray as well as Cobblestone inks which created a cool color palette. A Pale Gray border used around the perimeter of the invitation added a subtle design element on the front. While on the reverse, guests can find our Damask pattern in Pale Gray ink. The same pattern repeated on the envelope liner kept the suite consistent and eye-catching.
