Black Wedding Invitations

Black wedding invitations with white foil stamping feature a poster style layout and a square shape for a cool and modern wedding. For these invitations we used a super-smooth and super-black paper, mounted to a 220lb white cotton backer. An unmistakably elegant and formal look for these black and white invitations. Accessory pieces were letterpress printed in black on white 110lb paper, and mailed in white cotton envelopes.

Unique invitations

Our clients came to us looking for something unique and different for their evening wedding at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC. They wanted something formal for their fall wedding but not the usual white invitations. We selected a modern font in a poster-style grid layout, combined with using white printing on black wedding invitations as a twist on wedding invitation tradition. The whole look stayed formal and elegant, especially by making the whole piece very thick with the addition of a 2-ply cotton backer. By using letterpress for the accessory pieces, there was no mistaking this was going to be a formal wedding!

The Beauty of Foil Stamping

Using foil stamping makes possible some effects that are usually not possible with other print methods. It is often not possible to get a light color print on a dark paper, but for these black wedding invitations a fabulous white foil stamp applied to black paper gave a dramatic black and white look. Other color combinations are also deeper and more vibrant, like a true black on silver paper. The most frequent use of foil stamping is to get a shiny metallic look, such as gold or silver printing on wedding invitations.
