Letterpress Wedding Invitations: Heather + Malcolm

Heather and Malcolm received their Letterpress Wedding Invitations just last week and I was so excited for them to get it!  So, of course, it was only fitting for me to showcase it on the blog as well.  Heather contacted me in January of this year for their June wedding.  When she contacted me, she mentioned wanting a custom design that was classic and elegant.  They’re getting married in New York so we were able to incorporate some New York design elements into their suite.   The letterpress printing was done on our C&P on our Fluorescent White cardstock; 220# for the  invitations and 110# for the additional pieces.  Heather and Malcolm wanted a 1-color suite and wanted Teal as their main color.  I was really excited to print with this color since I think it’s just absolutely beautiful!  I mixed the ink myself and was very pleased with the overall print.  The details in the skyline and even the symbols for the events came out beautifully.  I really loved how letterpress felt!  I pressed the Letterpress Invitations as deeply as I could; without compromising the cardstock, of course.  This is part of why I love printing with the 220# cardstock.  I love pressing it deep to really showcase the beauty of letterpress!

I was so excited for them to receive their Letterpress Wedding Invitations!

Heather asked me to ship it to her office in New York so I knew she’d see it before Malcolm.  When Malcolm finally saw it, he sent me this:

Letterpress Wedding Invitations with Pink Edge Paint: Codi+Eric

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Codi on her Letterpress Wedding Invitations. She literally just got them yesterday and I was so excited about them that I really wanted to showcase them on the blog today.  Codi contacted me in October of last year and was interested in a custom letterpress design.  She’s getting married in beautiful Hawaii this coming April and having a reception back at home in Ohio.  We worked on incorporating some tropical type leaves to give it more of that “beachy, fun” vibe.  We decided to do the leaves in a blind print and the text with our silver ink.  The rest of the suite was in the silver ink with the exception of the Accommodations card which was pink (to match the edge paint) and silver.  She also sent me this gorgeous custom monogram that I absolutely fell in love with.  I was excited to see how it would come out in letterpress printing and I was just over the moon with the final product!  So, without further ado, here they are!

The letterpress printing was done on my favorite C&P with our beautiful Pearl White cardstock.  The invitations were on the 220# and the accommodations and RSVP was printed on our 110#.

I updated her along the way with how the letterpress printing was going and updated her as much I could regarding her letterpress wedding invitations.  I sent her a few sneak peek because I really couldn’t contain my excitement over them and I just had to share!

I e-mailed her yesterday to make sure they arrived safely and this is what she sent back.  I love these types of e-mails as they truly make my day!

Letterpress Wedding Invitations: Katy + Phil

Happy Monday, friends!  I’m a little late on posting these Letterpress Wedding Invitations we printed for Katy and Phil back in August of 2013, but I love them too much not to share with you!

I started working with this lovely couple in early February of 2013.  They tied the knot at the beautiful Middleton Place in Charleston, South Carolina, and what a venue to get married at!  Katy and Phil wanted to go for a “Southern/French” feel for their letterpress invitations.  They wanted to incorporate kind of an “etched” look of designs and a beautiful custom monogram that Phil himself worked on and submitted to us!  Their custom letterpress designs consisted of beautiful images, different ones on each piece, with my favorite fonts printed in our Gold ink.  I really loved how the mint and coral colors came out as well.  We also had the main invitations edge painted with the gold color and it all just tied together so nicely!  I felt like the invitation suite was elegant, yet fun at the same time.  I just absolutely loved printing these!  Also, totally unplanned, but when I was printing the mint color, I happened to have on a mint polish on my nails that day that matched exactly to the mint ink.

Working closely with Katy and Phil on their letterpress invitations, I really felt a part of their wedding.  Does that sound weird?  I just feel so connected to each person I work with that I just feel so unbelievably honored to have been included in such an event in their lives.  Thank you, Katy and Phil, for being so fantastic to work with!

Letterpress Invitations: Allison + Marco

With their wedding quickly approaching (literally in a few days), I really wanted to take the time to showcase Allison and Marco’s letterpress invitations.  Allison and Marco are getting married this Friday at the beautiful Saint Margaret of Antioch Catholic Church in Pearl River, New York.  The reception follows at the picturesque The Rockleigh in New Jersey.

I started working with Allison in early January for their upcoming October 2013 wedding.  For their wedding invitations, she really wanted to incorporate lace details along with wine vines/grapes.  She also sent me a photo of an urn that they’re using for their centerpieces that she wanted to incorporate into the custom letterpress design as well.  We decided to go with a 2-color letterpress invitations design, leaving the vines/grapes detail in a blind impression, giving it a subtle look amongst the elaborate border surrounding it.  The urn, nestled in between the vines, is also in a blind impression.  Because we decided to go with that for those details, I was able to get a deep impression which really showcases the letterpress print so beautifully.

She sent me this stunning image of the church that they’re getting married at and wanted include this in the map design.  Boy, was I excited to print that one!   I just knew the details of that church would print great!  For their response cards, we went with a postcard, which I love.  Their entire Letterpress Wedding Invitations were printed on our Pearl White cardstock in 110#.
