We get to work with amazing people from every corner of this beautiful world on a daily basis, but it’s not everyday we get to ship invitations all the way to Bahrain (and that’s too bad really). These Connemara (by Beth Ann Seal) letterpress wedding invitations are printed larger than our largest standard invitation sizes. Measuring in at an impressive 8.25″ x 8.25″ they’re so big in fact that we needed to run them on our larger 13″ x 18″ Heidelberg Windmill press (affectionately nicknamed ‘Hindenburg‘ by our printers because it tends to be a little cranky). Sea Mist and Navy inks, Metallic Gold edge painting, rounded corners, and hand calligraphed Arabic text, all come together beautifully here on our 2-ply ivory paper. We particularly love the way the fluid Arabic calligraphy compliments the repeating floral motif of the background.

A recent favorite is a clean customization to our Soleil (by Beth Ann Seal) letterpress wedding invitations. The simplicity of our sea mist and taupe inks on white paper, combined with our Luster Roman font creates a natural quality that is perfect for a garden themed wedding. A matching sea mist envelope liner balances the understated letterpress set.

This sleek little letterpress wedding invitation set was sent over to us by our friends at Invite & Write in New York, New York. A super-clean fusion of Tara Hogan’s Hummingbirds and our always popular Deveril (by Beth Ann Seal), this is a beautiful example of just how endlessly our designs can be combined and customized. It features Hebrew lettering, Pumpkin and Charcoal inks, and is printed onto our 1-ply white paper. Fly on you crazy little birds.

We love this bold and modern letterpress invitation customization that combines the best of our Alice (by Tara Hogan) and Deveril (by Beth Ann Seal) designs! Submitted to us by our friends at The Village Invites II in New York, New York, this stylish set features double-sided letterpress invitations as well as dual-purpose coasters – our favorite! The fun combination of black and spring green inks, along with the unique monogram pattern on the reply postcard, has us head over heels!
