I recently shipped out Anny and Robert’s Letterpress Wedding Invitations just last week and I’m so obsessed with them! Anny contacted me in early March for their October wedding. They’re getting married at the beautiful Rancho Las Lomas in Silverado, California. When she contacted me initially, she wanted to incorporate a Chinese character for “double happiness” and peonies onto her letterpress cards. I’ve printed invitations incorporating this character before and I just love what it stands for! I was more than happy to accommodate her request. We decided on a landscape invitation with peonies in the corners and the double happiness in the middle of the text. She chose a beautiful red/wine color for the peonies, which I hand mixed myself, and opted for black ink for the text. I was so excited when she mentioned that she wanted edge paint as well and thought the red/wine color would give it a nice, subtle pop of color.

The Letterpress Printing:
The letterpress cards were printed on the Ecru cardstock. The invitations were printed in the 220# cardstock in 2-colors: black ink and the wine color that I mixed. The the RSVP was printed in the 110# cardstock and was a 1-color print. Both the invitations and RSVP were printed our on C&P.
When she received the invitations, she emailed me these kind words. I love sharing what our happy brides send over because it always makes my day!
