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:
