glamorous gold foil & letterpress

October 8th, 2013 by

Our first conversation with Adrienne was over a cocktail while imagery of a glamorous ceremony and sparkly reception, like something from the Great Gatsby, filled our heads. Her fondness of the Art Deco era style served as the spring board for our design. We worked with a local printer to print gold foil on 220lb cotton paper. We could not be more thrilled with the way the gold turned out!!! We print all of our letterpress work in house but it was fun to outsource this part of the job and watch the masters at Widby Printing print the gold foil. A roll of metallic foil runs through the press and leaves the design’s inverse behind. Well, it was just too beautiful to throw away so I kept it – as seen in the 3rd photo down. We gifted the metal plate used for the printing to Adrienne and Will as a memento. The simple geometric design in shimmering gold was just perfect. The RSVP card was letterpress with black on 110lb cotton paper with a black envelope. The set was wrapped with a black cover and tied together with thin gold string. The thin string created a structured design on the front. A gold envelope with printed addresses was the delightful vessel for the set. Adrienne is a beautiful person inside and out & we are thrilled for her and Will!
