As your fingers explore the surface, the cotton fibers whisper a story of authenticity and quality, creating a canvas that invites you to indulge in the details etched upon it.

The Heidelberg printing press, an 80-year-old masterpiece, serves as the conduit for bringing this vision to life. The custom printing plates, each bearing the unique elements of the design, press into the cotton paper with precision and artistry. The result is not just a printed message but a manifestation of craftsmanship, where the ink sinks into the fibers, creating a depth and richness that only traditional printing methods can achieve.

The Admiral’s House, with its rich history and timeless allure, provides the ideal canvas for this choice of venue is not just a location; it’s an integral part of the story that unfolds in the design. The Save the Date becomes a bridge between the past and the future, a connection between the historic charm of the Admiral’s House and the modern love story it now hosts.

The Save the Date becomes more than a mere announcement; it transforms into a visual narrative that intertwines the historic charm of the venue with the contemporary love story of the couple. As the ink settles into the fibers, it mirrors the enduring connection between past and present, creating a tangible link between the rich history of the Admiral’s House and the anticipation of a modern celebration. The 5 x 7 canvas, adorned with the intricate details pressed by the Heidelberg printing press and the custom copper printing plates, is a testament to the fusion of tradition and innovation—a celebration of craftsmanship that mirrors the timeless allure of both the venue and the love story it hosts.

Custom Wedding Illustrations

Sometimes the couple would like to show the wedding venue location in a painting or drawing, and use it in their wedding invitations. For example, a wedding might be taking place in a particularly beautiful or historic location, that can become part of the artwork for the wedding invitations. This invitation includes a watercolor sketch of the Church Pieve di San Felice in San Felice, Italy. The custom liner includes the pattern of the tiles being used as table decorations at the wedding reception.

The illustration might also be of something that is special to the couple.

A traditional wedding invitation often features a vintage antique monogram, such as this “MJ” or “JM” monogram. The monogram can be used on your save the dates, wedding invitations, or other personal items like notecards and thank you cards. We can do a monogram with any initials to fit your needs.
