Handlettered Letterpress Simplicity

It is always exciting to get an opportunity to have our original art and hand lettering letterpressed. Our friend Victoria of Milkfed Press printed these lovely invitations for Kate and Andrew's wedding. The suite was printed on Arturo cotton stock and featured a vintage hydrangea engraving. We worked backwards, creating the KA monogram first for their save the date, then later designed the rest of the letters to complete their names. Later on, the mother of the bride returned to commission a "C" to complete Kate & Andrew's married monogram. It is shown above along with the two letter monogram, which was embroidered by the bride's aunt and used as a bouquet wrap.

Hand lettered Beach Wedding invitations

For Julie and Jon's beach wedding invitation, we updated our existing dune grass and beach fence art with original hand lettering. Digital art was mixed with a watercolor beach rose illustration. The suite was printed on white linen card stock, which is accentuated by bold pink and navy accents.

Antique Book Wedding Invitations

Tiffany contacted us last fall requesting a wedding invitation that parodied an antique book. When we met, we found out that she wished to recreate the cover of a specific book, 'The Water Witch," by James Fennimore Cooper. The classic sea adventure's setting was Tiffany and Thomas's June wedding venue. The Water Witch Clubhouse, in Highlands, New Jersey sits atop one of the highest points on the eastern seaboard and boasts sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and New York Harbor. We created a pen and ink drawing of the Clubhouse and designed the book jacket around it. The cover was printed in gold thermography on a linen card stock. The couple's Golden Retriever made an appearance on the back book cover and on the bookmark/direction card.

Simple Nautical Elegance

We love the simple elegance of Molly and Mark's nautical wedding invitation. Gold thermography is accentuated by the contrast of a navy linen paper. A gold envelope lined with bold navy and white stripes offsets the invitation.
