Custom Save the Date Cards

We had the pleasure of working with Sarah on her custom Save the Date cards. Sarah had a lot of information to share on her cards, and her wish was to display it in a unique and creative way. To accomplish this, we designed an accordion-style card and re-created her best friend’s print of the main design (the states drawing). We also designed a timeline of the weekend’s fun and special events to help her guests plan ahead. For the final detail, we incorporated the 1920’s Gatsby feel into all the elements of the Save the Date through our use of art-deco colors and fonts.  Congratulations Sarah +  Craig on your engagement!

Amy & Scott (Custom Wedding Invitations)

We had so much fun creating Amy + Scott’s custom wedding invitations! The bride and groom are tying the knot at the Sunken Gardens, a beautiful 100-year-old botanical garden nestled in the heart of St. Petersburg, FL. With this naturally beautiful location in mind, we created an organic floral theme that perfectly reflected this garden-styled wedding. We incorporated our hand-drawn bushel of roses design throughout the invitation suite, and we also, layered the invite with a red paper to give a clean and elegant touch to the design. Since she had a lot of information to share with her guests, we created the enclosure cards in an double-sided accordion style and included the history of the venue, a wedding timeline, website and accommodation information, attire details, and perforated RSVP cards. To finish the design, we printed the entire suite on a natural-white pearlescent paper and mounted the invite in an organic pocket fold. We love how all of these details gave the invitation suite a perfect balance of earthy comfort and elegant flair. Fabulous!!! :)

Jennifer + Brandon (Custom Letterpress Wedding Invitations)

Jennifer + Brandon are getting married at The Oldest House Gardens, a beautiful venue nestled in the historical town of St. Augustine, Florida. The bride and groom wished to incorporate the old Florida charm and elegance into their custom letterpress wedding invitations.  To achieve this, we hand-drew the historic home and displayed the artistic rendering on the invite. To add more of an elegant-vintage touch, we pressed the entire suite in gold ink and mounted the invitation on a gold pearlescent leaf pocket. To bring in a bit more of the Old Florida style, we added a magnolia-patterned envelope liner and paired the invitation with an opal pearlescent outer envelope. We absolutely love the finished product, and we hope you love it, too! :)

Congrats Jennifer + Brandon!!!

Ashlee + James (Custom Letterpress Wedding Invitations)

We had the pleasure of working with Ashlee + James on creating their custom letterpress wedding invitations! Ashlee came to us wanting a formal and elegant design. To achieve this, we created a very classy motif and blind-pressed it (the method of press printing with no ink) around the border of the invitation. To add a clean look to the invitation suite, we pressed the wording on a fluorescent white paper stock using navy and gray inks. We then wrapped the entire suite in a pink bellyband and adorned both the bellyband and the fluorescent white envelope with an original monogram design that formed the final detail of this beautiful and classy invitation suite. Congratulations, Ashlee + James! May you have a long and blessed marriage!

The “Abigail” Design (Affordable Letterpress Wedding Invitations)

Kimberly + Christopher chose the “Abigail” design from our Letterpress Design Bar Collection (selecting from our Design Bar gives our brides the option of obtaining affordable letterpress wedding invitations while having the flexibility to personalize their invites).

This beautiful invite was the perfect fit for this bride and groom’s 1920s/Gatsby-themed wedding. To incorporate the glitz and glamor elements ever present in the ‘20s, we gold-foiled part of the invitation and pressed the rest using a black ink.  For more vintage details, we printed the letterpress invite on a natural-colored paper.  To customize the suite further, the reception card was printed in a coral paper stock, and as a finishing touch we added gold envelope liners to the opal/pearlescent envelopes.

We love everything about this wedding invitation suite! Kimberly + Christopher did a fantastic job customizing the “Abigail” Letterpress design to fit their wedding style and colors.

Rene-Marie + Jason (Custom Letterpress Wedding Invitations)

Rene-Marie + Jason wanted a classy, elegant design with a glitz-and-glam twist. To blend these elements, we pressed the wedding invitations with gold ink (to mirror Rene-Marie’s theme color) on natural-colored paper and layered the invite with a gold-glitter backing. To finish the design, we paired the invitation suite with a quartz-colored pearlescent envelope. We love how the elegance of gold letterpress and the shimmer of glitter paper fused together to add glamour and grace to these beautiful custom letterpress wedding invitations.

Custom Letterpress Wedding Invitations: Katey + Thomas

Katey + Thomas came to us wanting to make their wedding invitations unique and personal. They wanted a design that would display a sweet and romantic feel while keeping the tone formal.  To accomplish this, we hand-drew and watercolored pink orchids and letterpressed the invitation suite with navy ink.  For the finishing touch, we added navy and silver paper layers to further incorporate the couple’s wedding colors.

The pink watercolor orchids, combined with the traditional letterpress printing style, definitely gave a delicate and elegant appeal to these beautiful custom letterpress wedding invitations.

Rachel + Eric fell in love with The Monogram Suite, a design from our affordable letterpress wedding invitations collection found in our Design Bar. Rachel wanted to personalize the design to fit her wedding colors, and shechose to go with one-color letterpress using silver ink on a thick, soft white paper. To add more of the wedding color details, we edge painted the invite with a coral-colored ink.  For the final touch, we enclosed the letterpress suite in a soft white envelope embellished it with a coral-colored envelope liner.

Custom Designed Letterpress Wedding Invitations: Tori & Patrick

We enjoyed creating these custom designed letterpress wedding invitations for Tori & Patrick. The couple is getting married at The Lange Farm located just minutes outside of Tampa, Florida. This beautiful place features elegant plantation-style architecture, and Tory’s wish was to showcase the timeless, elegant charm of the farm on their wedding invitation suite. To accomplish this, we incorporated an antique-style motif for the invite, and created a hand-drawn oak tree on the RSVP. We used the letterpress printing technique to accentuate the vintage-elegant charm: the entire wedding invitation suite was pressed in a beautiful silver ink. For the final touch, we wrapped the invitation with white lace and a Tiffany-blue ribbon, and we enclosed the complete invitation suite with Tiffany-blue envelopes.

Custom Wedding Invitations: Jessica + Christopher

We really enjoyed creating Jessica + Christopher’s custom wedding invitations! This bride and groom were inspired by the colorful patterns created by kaleidoscopes, and their wish was to display a blend of that whimsical feel with a formal-elegant style. To achieve this look, we created a kaleidoscopic pattern for the envelope liners and accommodations cards. We then white-foiled the invitations on black paper stock, and we used the letterpress method with black ink on a white paper stock for the rest of the suite. By using timeless colors like black and white, we were able to give the suite an elegant and sophisticated appeal. We absolutely love the finished product, and we hope you love it, too! :)
