Letterpress Vintage Telegram Destination Wedding Invitations

I recently had the pleasure of working with Hazel and Roman on their wedding invitations.  They are having a destination wedding in beautiful Hawaii and wanted something to reflect ‘destination’ without it being too ‘cheesy.’  Hazel was really fond of our vintage telegram wedding invitations so she wanted to stick with something similar, but with her own flare.  I am really pleased with the way it turned out!

The invitation was a 2-color print (slate and olive), printed on our 220# Ecru cardstock.  It also has edge painting in the olive color.

Accommodation cards were printed on 110# Ecru, also a 2-color print.  No edge painting.

The post card was a double-sided print with mad libs on the back and post card information on the front.  This was printed on our 110# Ecru cardstock.

 

Our Wedding

I can’t believe it has already been a week that I’ve been married.  Boy, how time flies!  It feels like just yesterday that we got engaged!  The process was fun and I am beyond happy to be married to the love of my life!  Now that the wedding is done, here is a look at our wedding invitations!  We decided to go with letterpress telegram wedding invitations as mentioned in our sneak peek below.  We got married at The Legendary Park Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles here in California.  It’s an historic landmark and I thought it was only fitting to have letterpress telegram wedding invitations because I felt that the venue had this vintage, “classic Hollywood” feel to it.

The invitations were inspired by the classic Western Union telegram layout.  Our wedding is a union of sort, so I thought it was cool to replace Western with my new last name, Kosaka.  The invitation was 5-color printed on 220# Ecru with pseudo perforations.  Every little details counts, right?  🙂

Along with the invitation, we included a directions card,  an accommodation card, and post card response card wrapped with hemp twine, enclosed in a Kraft envelope which we also letterpressed with our return address.  The additional cards were printed on110# Ecru.

The Direction Card was a 3-color letterpress print.  I love how the compass felt on my fingertips.

The Accommodation Card was a simple 2-color letterpress print.

The response card post card was also a 2-color letterpress print.

I love printing in general, but to print my own wedding invitation was almost surreal.  What an experience this all was.  I’m just glad I’ll be able to do it again and again with every new bride that comes along.  Here’s to the married life!  Cheers!

Xoxo,

Mrs. Elma Kosaka

 

Modern Letterpress Playbill Invitation

In October of 2011, we posted a Free Letterpress Invitation giveaway on www.weddingbee.com. We wanted to get feedback from brides on what they wanted for their stationery needs. Any bride that answered the questionnaire we posted was entered to win 100 1-Color Custom Letterpressed Wedding Invitation. With that said, Laragh was randomly chosen to be our winner and here we are now!
After communicating with Laragh on what style she wanted, we came up with, how we describe as, a “modern playbill letterpress invitation.” She wanted to add a second color and response cards as well.

Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Her invitations were printed on 5”x7” 220# pearl white cardstock.  Response cards were printed on 4.25”x5.5” 110# pearl white cardstock.

She was so thrilled when we sent her photos right after we were done printing.  I love the excitement from happy clients!  Totally makes my day.

 

Pink and Brown Letterpress Wedding Invitation

I had the pleasure of working with Andrea Polanco, a soon-to-be bride such as myself.  I loved her elegant design of the invitations and the brown and pink just went hand in hand.  I duplicated her design in illustrator so that the image quality was good in order to get the plates made.  Her invitations were printed on 220# pearl white cardstock and the reception card, response card, and tags were printed on 110# pearl white cardstock.  I made the tags 2″x3.5″ so she had the option to leave them as is or reshape them.

 

 

Vintage Inspired Wedding Invitations: Vow Renewals

Vintage Inspired Letterpress Wedding Invitations: Vow Renewal

I LOVE getting Vow Renewal clients because it gives everyone getting married hope!  I also LOVE anything VINTAGE!  So, when we got this order for vintage inspired letterpress wedding invitation vow renewal…I was more than overly excited to print them.  Also, because they were letterpress wedding invitations – that got me even more thrilled since my own wedding is coming up in March 2012!  Oh, love is in the air…

The main letterpress invitation vow renewal was printed on 220# Crane Lettra Ecru, which gives it more of that vintage look and feel.  The accommodations and RSVP postcards were printed on 110# Crane Lettra Ecru, enclosed in matching Crane Lettra Ecru envelopes.  I thought the eggplant colored ink (Pantone 5115) went perfectly with the Ecru.  Match made in heaven.
