Letterpress Invitations: Sarah + Phill


Hello, friends!  I apologize for not updating the blog as frequently.  We were on a little vacation, but we’re catching up with all the letterpress printing as we speak!

With their wedding fast approaching, I wanted to take some time to showcase the letterpress invitations for Sarah and Phill. He reached out to me in late May for their October 2013 wedding. Both he and his fiance, Sarah, were so great to work with! They were completely on the same page which made it so easy for me to get ideas going and come up with something they both loved. They wanted to go for a “simple and classic” design and below is what I came up with for them.

Sarah and Phill’s Custom Letterpress Wedding Invitations:

I had so much fun printing these on my Chandler & Price letterpress machine.  Working together with the Sarah and Phill, we decided to go with the double thick 220# cardstock for the invitation.  The letterpress printing we get on this cardstock is absolutely to die for!  You can see and feel the impression and I loved how the magenta color came out as well!  We printed their RSVP card on the thinner, 110# cardstock.  Their reply date happened to be on my birthday!

I love what I do, but it is the letters that I receive from my clients that make my passion even better!  Here is what Sarah and Phill had to say about their Letterpress Invitations:

Hello Elma!

We received our invitations and RSVP cards yesterday and we are thrilled with the work you’ve done! Thank you so much, they are EXACTLY what we were hoping for and your note was beautiful and well received. You will have our recommendation forever and I’m sure we’ll be looking for reasons to use your services again.

Thank you again,

Phill and Sarah


I just finished taking a whole bunch of photos so keep an eye out for more recently printed letterpress invitations 🙂
