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.

I received the invitations!!  Thank you thank you, they are beautiful!  I really appreciate how wonderful and responsive you were.  You made the process so easy!

Thank you!

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 Wedding Invitations: Nicole + Paul

Nicole and Paul are getting married in September and I was fortunate enough to be able to work with them on their letterpress wedding invitations!  I started working with Nicole back in 2013 on her Letterpress Save the Date cards and continued working with her for her invitations as well.  What a joy it was to be able to follow their journey leading up to this point.  For her letterpress wedding invitations, Nicole wanted to go for a clean and classic look, but wanted a monogram that included a garland to somewhat tie into Paul’s Greek heritage.  I absolutely love the details on their monogram!  Nicole was very sweet and e-mailed me a photo of her whole letterpress wedding invitation suite in its final state.  I thought she did a magnificent job putting it all together with every little detail you can imagine.  I can only imagine what her guests thought when they received them!

Letterpress Printing:

The letterpress cards were printed on our Pearl White Cardstock.  The invitation on the thick 220# and the rest of the suite on our 110#.  These were all printed on my trusty ol’ C&P!  I love that thing!

Shortly after Nicole received her letterpress cards, she e-mailed me and sent a photo (top photo).  I really love seeing it all come together and love these types of e-mails!

Letterpress Wedding Invitations: Anny + Robert

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!
