Letterpress Wedding Invitations: Christine + Byron

Christine and Byron are getting married in just a few short weeks and I  had the great joy and honor of working with them on their Letterpress Wedding Invitations.  I had a fantastic time letterpress printing the pieces for her invitation suite and I’m so glad I’m able to share them with you today.  Christine initially contacted me in early January for their October wedding.  She envisioned a very simple design and knew exactly what font she wanted to use.  With that being established, and once I received her preferred wording, we were able to move onto the letterpress printing part of the process fairly quickly.  Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, here are Christine and Byron’s letterpress cards….

Letterpress Cards:

The pieces that were included in her invitation suite are as follows:

  • 1-color Invitation
  • 1-color Reception cards
  • 1-color Rehearsal Dinner cards
  • 1-color RSVP

These were printed with black ink on our C&P.  The cardstock she chose was our Fluorescent White in 110# which I thought was perfect considering we were using black ink.  It really gave it a nice contrast between the ink and color of the paper.  We also printed Thank You notes for Christine and Byron (not pictured).  The font used for their letterpress cards was Carolyna Pro Black.

I sent the invitations shortly after we finished printing them and she sent me an e-mail to confirm they were received safely.

Thank you, Christine, for being so wonderful to work with.  I’m beyond excited for you and Byron and your upcoming nuptials.  I remember the few short weeks before my own wedding and remember how exciting it all was.  I bet you’ll make a beautiful bride!  Wishing you a lifetime of happiness, Christine and Byron!

Letterpress Invitations: Auraleen + Clinton

I totally loved working with Auraleen and Clinton on their custom letterpress invitations!  Clinton e-mailed me in early January to begin the process.  Can I just say, I love early planners?  I like having the time to bounce ideas back and forth with the bride and groom and making sure all parties involved are 100% happy with the letterpress invitations.  It was also pretty random that after we began working together, I later found out that we had mutual friends in common.  Talk about a small world!

Auraleen and Clinton tied the knot in August of this year at the beautiful San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California.  For their invitations, they wanted to go for an elegant, yet simple look.  Clinton and I discussed some ideas and he mentioned wanting to incorporate birds and a bowtie into the design .  I was totally smitten with this idea!  For the letterpress printing, this was printed on our Chandler & Price on our fluorescent white 220# cardstock.  We decided to go with classic black text and a personalized monogram (including birds and the bowtie, of course).  We included a blind print outside the borders to give it more texture and detail.  I added a little bit of tint base to it to give it a bit more contrast against the fluorescent white paper.  The letterpress invitations were printed on the 220# cardstock and RSVP was on the 110# cardstock.

The letterpress printing came out great and I’m very pleased with the details of the blind impression

We also printed letterpress Thank You cards for them as well (not pictured).  We incorporated their birds logo with their monogram on the Thank You cards which I thought was just so adorable.

After we finished printing, I was able to meet up with Auraleen to deliver the letterpress invitations.  She was looking quite fabulous and fashionista-esque in her pearl necklace; I loved it!  Whenever it’s possible, I absolutely love meeting with the people I work with.  Not only to give a face to the name, but also to see their reaction when they are able to see and touch their final letterpress invitations.  To be able to witness the joy on their faces makes me so happy.  I sometimes wonder where I would be had I not been working with letterpress printing… Oh I remember, in a bland cubicle looking at numbers all day.

Letterpress Thank You Cards: Lauren and Matt

Lauren and Matt tied the knot early January of this year.  Lauren is a bride from Australia that I had the joy of working with her on her Letterpress Wedding Invitations back in 2012.  After she got married, she contacted me again and was interested in ordering Letterpress Thank You Cards.  I was excited to hear from her again and was eager to print them.  She mentioned that she had one of her wedding photos made into an illustration and wanted to include these in her Thank You Cards.  She e-mailed me the photo and I absolutely fell in love!  It’s not everyday that you see something so cool like that.  It looked so soft and romantic.  I loved every bit of it.  I got to thinking, that photo plus letterpress?  Oh boy, this was going to look great!  I’m so excited to share this with you.  Please enjoy!

Letterpress + Photo Thank You Cards

The Process: Photoshop + Inkjet Printing + Letterpress

I took her illustration that was emailed over as a jpeg into Photoshop and inkjet printed the images onto the cardstock.  After doing so, I oiled up my trusty ol’ C&P letterpress machine and started printing the blind peony image onto the illustration.  Then I inked that bad boy up with black ink and printed the text above the image.  The letterpress detail on the cardstock just tied everything altogether so nicely!  I loved running my fingers across the peonies.  The depth, the details, it all just felt right.  I also love how the illustration itself had so many little details as well; the different shades of green, the leaves.  Most importantly, I love how the letterpress card with the illustration perfectly captures the feeling that is shared between Lauren and Matt.

Congratulations again, newlyweds!  Thank you for allowing Simply Letterpressed to be a part of such a special moment in your lives.
