A Different Kind of Beach Theme Wedding, Coral and Waves

Our client came to us and wanted something a little different but her wedding invitation had to include waves, coral shapes and a monogram for her and her future husband. She loved the look and feel of letterpress and wanted texture and a touch of gold foil. With that in mind, we inserted a design pattern of waves into a quatrefoil border which raised the center panel giving this set the desired textured. Now that the main invitation design was complete all we had to do to pull it all together is add some design elements to the other cards including coral inks. You have to admit everything looks better when it is letterpressed.

Recently we decided to play around with the way that we display our invitation designs on the web and thought that stop motion would be a fun experiment. There’s sound to this video so if you’re in an office make sure your speakers are turned down as to not alert your coworkers that your searching for the perfect wedding invitations.

This black pocketfold Bar Mitzvah invitation made a statement without needing photos, graphics or even showy designs to liven it up. With just a simple silver border to tie it all together, this invitation used rich texture and great letterpress to make a lasting impression.

Luxury Invitation Touches 2013

Painted Edges, Thick Soft Paper and Letterpress

When you’re searching for luxury invitations and just haven’t found one with the right touch of color, consider painting the edges of the paper. It’s done by hand by people who love stationery and creating those unique touches. The process is simple, but tricky. All you need is an ink roller and a steady hand. No machinery required. Although, if you want silver or gold foil leaf on your edges, it may get a little more complicated.

Creating water color designs on thick cotton paper has improved thanks to innovations in digital printing on thicker papers. These invitations were printed digitally from the original design, with the addition of letterpressed text and a dark green paper backer. The painted edge in a fresh spring green was the final touch. The goal was to create a whimsical water color invitation based on a children’s book set in a garden.

Gold edge paintingGold Painted Edge Stationery
For this luxury wedding invitation we created for a ceremony held in Rome, Italy, the couple wanted something as lavish as their event. We used museum board (4-ply museum board-it’s twice as thick as the 220LB paper) and created a dimpled texture with a letterpress. The invitation was topped off with a copper foil stamp with a custom crest with the couple’s initials.

This invitation was inspired by a wine bottle and a red, white and black wedding theme. The red painted edge gave it the touch it needed to pull the invitation set together, and was tied together in the end with a deep red belly band.

Why stop at a regular painted edge when you can have actual shiny foil gleaming at the edge of your invitation? This beauty was done in shiny silver foil, but foil options come in many colors, from gold to blue to fuschia!

Painted edges can add $175+ to the price of average wedding invitation set per piece. For a perfectly elegant luxury wedding invitation, consider using a nice calligraphy font printed in letterpress on a formal size invitation of (6X9) and for a touch of color, paint the edges. For something truly special, carry that theme throughout the set and paint the edges of the RSVP card and all the other inserts. To go over the top, you can use the painted edge color as the envelope liner or use the same color as the RSVP return envelope.
