We are excited to show you these modern custom wedding invitations designed for our couple Jessica + Joseph. The bride and groom wanted something very modern with a motif that would emphasize the ampersand.. To achieve this, we created a clean and crisp design using a thin typescript and made the ampersand the focal point. Jessica was all about texture so she loved the idea of blind-pressing the ampersand and foiling the rest of the wording with burgundy ink instead of the traditional gold (using burgundy gave the invite a modern & fall look)! Jessica had a lot of fun details incorporated into her wedding, one was a venetian dessert bar (since they are honeymooning in Italy) so we wanted to pull a little bit of that into the invitation suite and created a Tuscany-esk pattern and added it to the belly band.
We enjoyed working with Kelsey + Darius on their custom letterpress wedding invitations. The bride and groom are getting married at the Barrington Hill Farm in Lakeland, FL, and they wanted a design that would give a rustic-vintage feel to their invites. To do this, we made a drawing of the beautiful oak tree that they were getting married under . We also incorporated a horseshoes and a hand drawn vintage map that features some special spots to Kelsey + Darius. We then letterpressed the entire suite using a navy and champagne ink on a soft white cotton paper. We wrapped the entire invitation suite with burlap and a navy twine. We absolutely love the end result! Congratulations Kelsey + Darius!!!
We had a lot of fun working with Lara on her “Prohibition Party” invitations! Lara’s theme party was “the Deviant Dolphin Speakeasy,” and her wish was to incorporate a debonaire dolphin design into the invites. We thought that creating a Gatsby-esque design would go perfectly with her theme! We included a lot of hand-drawn elements: whisky bottles, a 20’s flapper girl and the debonaire dolphin sipping a martini. To really take it to the next level, we add a gold foiled paper layer along with a black pearlescent paper layer and then lined the envelope with a Gatsby art-deco pattern. We love how all of the elements of this invitation fit the occasion perfectly! This is one party I would love to go to!
We had the pleasure on working with Michael Mastry, Owner of HavenHome Furniture and his team on his custom letterpress business cards and correspondence cards. Michael loved the look of our business cards and felt his business needed that beautiful look and feel that only letterpress can provide. We letterpress printed the business cards on a double thick 220 lb cotton paper stock and printed one ink on one side and 2 colors on the other and finished the cards with edge-paint to really add a fresh look and pop of color. We love how the aqua edges compliments these classy black and white cards!
Happy Tuesday friends!! We are super excited to see our work featured on Every Last Detail Blog!! Emmanuela from Precious Occasions approached us to design the invitations and paper goods for a modern wedding inspiration photo shoot, and her wish was to incorporate peach and mint as the color palette. We created a simple design, bringing the main focus onto the typography and clean lines. To bring out more of that modern look, we added a chevron pattern to the table numbers. We love how all the paper good blended so well with the rest of the details!

We are so excited to be featured on the “Style Me Pretty Living” blog in the month of August! We had the pleasure of working with MMD Events in the creation of a DIY Ombre segment for “Style Me Pretty Living.”
We love the idea of dip dyeing, and we were really excited to work it into wedding menus & table numbers. To achieve this look, we printed the menus on a cotton paper stock. We then dipped the bottom of each menu in water until the paper became saturated, at which point we dipped them into the dye. I moved the menu cards around so the dye would creep up a little further than the water line on the paper. If the dye got a little crazy or uneven, I would wipe the menus with a paper towel to keep the dye even across the bottom. I would then double-dip the menus into the dye to give them the ombre look. Finally, I laid them out on newspaper or paper towels to dry…and voila! They were ready for the big day!

Sarah + Mike came to us wanting to make their wedding invitations unique and very personal. They are getting married in beautiful sunny Florida right by the sandy beaches in the Gulf of Mexico, and their wish was to display that casual Florida feel on their custom wedding invitations. To do this, we incorporated a lot of hand-drawn details into the suite and created an accordion-style invite which was a great and creative way to include a lot of information and still keep it budget friendly Every section on their suite features a hand-drawing design: ferns, oyster shells and my favorite…the personalized watercolor map! The map displayed the Tampa Bay Watch (their wedding venue), scuba divers (the couple are scuba lovers), their family home, a wind surfer, and their family dog! The RSVP was perforated, making it convenient for the guests to tear it off and return it by mail.
We had so much fun creating Samantha + Forrest’s “save the date” cards and custom wedding invitations. This couple shares exciting and adventurous lives, and they wanted a design concept that would display their personalities. Samantha is in the music industry and Forrest is a professional BMX-er (how cool is that!!!), so we decided to go with a music concert theme.
To infuse their personalities into their “save the dates,” we featured a design that resembled a concert poster, incorporating a hand drawn microphone and a BMX bike.
For their wedding invitation suite, we designed the invite as a concert pass and die-cut the RSVP to make it look like a ticket. To add their wedding color palette, we digitally printed the wedding suite using turquoise and purple inks. For the final touch we used a turquoise envelope and tied the suite together with a star paper band displaying their names.
Happy Monday friends!! We are starting the week off with a sweet save-the-date photo card and this beautiful custom letterpress wedding invitation created for Katelyn + Taylor! They wanted a very simple, clean and elegant design on their formal invitations. Even though the design is very simple, we played with their color palette of taupe & blush and the printing method to take the invitation suite to the next level – giving it that wow factor! We letterpress the entire invitation suite in a two color letterpress on a creamy and warm ecru paper and then blind pressed the border design. Using the method of blind press (using no ink) gave the invitation that subtle touch of elegance that Katelyn + Taylor were looking for! (We also blind pressed Christine + Dan’s starfish design here).
We enjoyed creating the perfect wedding invitation for Christine + Daniel. This couple is getting married at the Don Cesar Hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida. Known as Florida’s “Pink Palace,” this elegant and historic hotel is located in St. Pete Beach.
Christine + Dan wanted something very formal, elegant and clean with a touch of beach-y feel, so we hand drew a starfish and add swirl detail to balance the design. We blind pressed (press printing with no ink) the design onto the invitation and the RSVP to achieve the subtle design look Christine wanted. The entire suite was letterpressed in a navy blue ink. We also incorporated a hand drawing of the beautiful Don Cesar on the reception card. To finish the invitations we added navy blue liner and embossed a starfish design on the back flap. This invitation is formal with a touch of beach-y elegance.
