Letterpress Wedding Invitations: Julie + Ben


With Julie and Ben’s wedding coming up in November, I wanted to take this time to showcase the letterpress wedding invitations we printed for them a few weeks ago.  Julie initially contacted me in July and explained that she was interested in a classic/romantic look with blush and champagne/gold as her colors with blush edge paint.  She wanted to incorporate some flowers to give it kind of a “beachy” feel.  They’re originally from the Midwest, but are getting married here in California at the beautiful The Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel!  Along with her letterpress wedding invitations, the other letterpress cards that were incorporated in her invitation suite were the RSVP, Accommodations, and Events cards.

Letterpress Printing:

Julie and Ben’s letterpress cards were printed on our trusty C&P using our Pearl White cardstock.  The colors we used were gold (absolutely one of our favorites here) and blush that we mixed matching Pantone 698U.  We also provided letterpress printing on the envelopes with their return address printed on the back flap (not pictured for privacy purposes).

I was really pleased with the final product and was ecstatic to send these over to Julie!  Of course, shortly after she received the package, she sent me the most wonderful e-mail!

 Hi Elma,

I just came home and received the invitations.  They are AMAZING!!!  I cannot tell you how much I love them, thank you so much for all of your hard work and getting everything together so fast!  I never thought I would be the type of person that would care that much about wedding invitations (I originally thought I was just going to use a template found on one of those invitation websites), but I really enjoyed the process and love the fact that these are original!  

These seriously made my day!  


I really can’t emphasize enough how much I love getting e-mails like this.  I get so excited printing invitations and when the bride gets just as excited as I am over them, makes me smile from ear to ear!  Thank you, Julie, for being so great to work with!  Your special day is coming up and I wish you and Ben all the world’s best!
