Letterpress Invitations: Simply Gold

I am obsessed with printing with our gold ink it appears! I can’t stress enough how much I love printing something so simple, yet timeless. It was quite an interesting story on how I was able to work with Susanna on her wedding invitations a few months ago. Apparently Susanna was looking for Letterpress Wedding Invitations and some how found Simply Letterpressed after a few Google searches. Upon looking through the blog and seeing my name, she connected it back to an old high school friend of hers, who she happened to still be friends with on Facebook. It turns out she was friends with my husband. What a small world, right? They went to high school and college together and she now resides in New York. She e-mailed my husband and he got us in touch. She was such a pleasure to work with and I thoroughly enjoyed working on her Letterpress Invitations suite. It just boggles my mind at times at how small this world can be! Social media, too! What a great way to stay connected to everyone you know!

Her invitations were printed on Crane Lettra 220# in Pearl white and the additional Letterpress Cards were printed on 110# in Pearl White.  I’m also obsessed with edge painting.  It just gives it that extra, subtle, pop of wow.

Letterpress Save the Date cards

When it comes to printing stationery for weddings, I love printing Save the Date Announcements Cards!  I feel like it sets the tone for the rest of the letterpress invitation suite.  This gives the guests a glimpse of what’s to come…a teaser, if you will.

Working with Lisette and Kenneth was so much fun!  I had the pleasure of meeting them in person and they are the sweetest couple I ever did meet!  They were so relaxed and were way ahead of the game when it came to their wedding planning; I love that!

Letterpress Save the Date Cards

These were letterpress printed on 110# Pearl White cardstock which is a soft white.  I feel it definitely fits well with the romantic theme of their cards, especially with the pink details.

The Letterpress Invitation Suite

Lisette and Kenneth also had other pieces printed with us as well (not yet pictured).  Their invitation suite consisted of invitations and RSVP cards.

 

Whisper the password “Gatsby”

I am so pleased to announce that we’ve recently had the pleasure of working with such a wonderful team of professionals for a fabulous photo shoot. Whitney of Wish Wonder Dream contacted us just a few short months ago to print stationery for the styled photo shoot and we were beyond thrilled to work with her again (we’ve worked with Whitney in the past for our own wedding last year in March).  Whitney teamed up with Amanda Claverie of Rosebud Floral Design and Heidi Ryder of Heidi Ryder Photography to come up with such a wonderful concept: Gatsby Reimagined!  When I saw the word Gatsby, I was sold.  Who doesn’t love this era and style?  I feel like I am somewhat of an old soul so this definitely peaked my interest, to say the least.  She had also mentioned that the photo shoot was going to be held at the LA Athletic Club; my heart just melted.  I was so giddy just imagining how everything was going to look!

The Letterpress Wedding Invitations

She sent over inspirational images and even sketched out some ideas of how she imagined the stationery to look like.  We printed everything on the Ecru White cardstock which I thought was very fitting for the shoot.  The Letterpress Invitations were printed on the 220# Ecru White cardstock which we printed on our wonderful 10×15 Chandler & Price with gold ink.  We printed the additional pieces (menu, RSVP post card, etc) on the 110# Ecru on the Vandercook 4.    The combination of the Ecru cardstock and the gold turned out so beautifully and definitely gave it more of that 1920’s feel.

That’s part of why I am so in love with Letterpress; the technique, the century old machines, the history.

It was so exciting to see everything come together and I’m so thrilled to share these wonderful photos with you.

Gatsby Reimagined!

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! 😉

Black & White Letterpress Business Cards

I’ve known Marc Bonanni for quite some time now and was thrilled to print his business cards for him. He’s such a knowledgeable person and is always our go-to guy when we’re in need of legal advice or just great company. 🙂

I love the simplicity of his cards: black and white, simple, clean. This was printed on our 220# cardstock, so I was able to get a deep impression which I just absolutely love. You can see from the photos that this was pressed pretty deep and it feels so good on the fingertips!
