Letterpress Invitations: Andrea + James

I wanted to congratulate the recent newlyweds, Andrea and James, on their wedding over this past weekend and express how honored I am to have been able to print their letterpress invitations.  They tied the knot at the beautiful Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California on Saturday.  They really lucked out on the weather because it was just perfect here in California, but then again, when is it not?  🙂  I bet their wedding was beautiful and cannot wait to see the photos.

I started working with James in March of this year for their letterpress wedding invitations.  I was able to meet up with both him and Andrea to discuss design options, colors, etc, for the letterpress printing.  They liked the look of square invitations so we decided to go with that along with an RSVP postcard.  Working closely with them both, we opted for 2-colors on their  letterpress invitations and 1-color for the RSVP card.  For the design, they wanted to incorporate floral details in a beautiful lavender color that Andrea picked out with grey text and green edge paint.  I absolutely loved how the lavender floral details printed!

I was really excited for the green edge painting we did for the invitations.  It just gave it that extra pop of color that I absolutely loved.

The letterpress printing was done on our Chandler & Price using our Pearl White cardstock.

I met up with James to deliver the invitations and was sure glad to do so.  I wished Andrea was able to join so I could see her reaction (unfortunately she was stuck at work at the time), but luckily, she was sweet enough to send me an email expressing her excitement for them as well.  I’m glad they were both as pleased with the final product as I was.  Congratulations again to the newlyweds.  May your lives be filled with endless laughter and eternal happiness!

Letterpress Invitations: Mia + Ryan

We recently had the honor of working on Mia and Ryan’s letterpress invitations.  They got married just a few short weeks ago at the beautiful Barndiva in Healdsburg, California.  Congratulations, newlyweds!!!

We got in touch with Mia through Christin Wilson of Christin Wilson Events in early July for their October wedding.  I met Christin previously at a good friend’s wedding in Temecula back in 2010.  Absolutely love the work she does!  Christin had worked with Mia initially and emailed me a few ideas of what Mia liked for inspiration.  She was interested in a custom letterpress design for her wedding invitations which I had so much fun working on!  Mia wanted something simple with a touch of “boehmian.”  Working closely with Mia, we came up with the below:

Her wedding invitations were printed on our 220# Pearl White cardstock.  This was a 3-color print with gold edge paint.  The colors used for the invitations were gold, grey, and the antlers in blind.  Absolutely loved how deep we were able to press the antlers!

With this custom letterpress invitation, she was able to really personalize it and requested we put the following at the bottom of wedding invitations:

“The ceremony will be followed by dinner, drinks, and conversation (no f*ing dancing!)”  I absolutely loved this!  Mia was not afraid to step out of the box and definitely made this her own.  I’ve never had a request quite like this, but I’ll have to say, it was a breath of fresh air.  The additional pieces (RSVP and events card) was printed on our 110# cardstock.  The events card was a 2-color print: grey and gold while the RSVP card was 1-color: grey.  We also letterpress printed her return address on some pretty rad Kraft envelopes (not pictured).

I had such a blast working with Chrsitin and Mia on these wedding invitations.  Thanks for being so wonderful and congratulations again Mia and Ryan!

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 Invitations: Gloria + Andrew

With our upcoming trip to Hawaii, it reminded me of these airline ticket inspired Letterpress Invitations we printed for Gloria and Andrew earlier this year.  They tied the knot on the beautiful island of Oahu at Dillingham Ranch, which is such an amazingly beautiful estate!  When Gloria initially reached out to us back in December of 2012, she had mentioned that she was interested in a “boarding pass/airline ticket” type invitation.  Working closely with her, we were able to come up with this design that we both fell in love with.  We decided to do her letterpress printing on our luxurious 110# cardstock in Fluorescent White.  It was printed on our Vandercook 4 and I’m so pleased with how it all turned out.  Gloria was incredible to work with and I’m so happy that I was able to help bring to life the wedding invitations that she had envisioned.  Without further ado, here they are:

She was even kind enough to send me a photo of how she wrapped everything together:

Not only were we able to print her Letterpress Invitations, we also printed her programs, menus, and escort cards.

I really appreciate getting feedback from everyone that I work with.  Gloria was kind enough to leave a great review for us on Yelp:

Elma is amazing!  She did our wedding invitations and was ridiculously responsive and they turned out amazing.  I came up with a basic idea and she designed a beautiful letterpress planeticket-inspired invite.  Also, her prices are very reasonable.  She updated me every step of the way and always responded to my emails within a day (sometimes within the hour!).  I highly recommend Elma for any letterpress job.  Thank you!!!

I always love a good challenge and this was our first airline ticket invitation design that we created from scratch and I love how the letterpress cards turned out!

 

Letterpress Wedding Invitations with Gold Ink

Karolina and David tied the knot back in May of this year. I am so glad I was able to take part in their wedding and print their invitations. From one newlywed to another…congrats!

We printed a very elegant 1-color print with Gold Ink for her invitation suite. I love printing with Gold because it’s just not something you work with everyday. Putting it onto the Chandler and Price and watching it ink up was just beautiful! The invitations were printed on the 220# Pearl White cardstock and the additional cards were on the 110# Pearl White.

Did I mention how much I love weddings? Too bad we only have one wedding to attend to this year (besides ours, that is. LOL).  I just love the ambiance of a wedding!  Oh yeah, and the food, too! 😉
