modern laser cut invitations

July 29th, 2014 by

Beth and Susan came to us in search of a modern invitation set to compliment their unique relationship.   They have been together for many years and are now able to get married.  It was a true celebration of their love and we were thrilled for the opportunity to help spread the word with their friends and family.  A laser cut scroll style invitation was backed with a walnut veneer.  Along the top a single stitch provided a spot for a dowel to pass through so it could be flattened and hung.   The RSVP was letterpress in green with a simple linked rings design.   We laser cut walnut veneer for lining the  RSVP envelope.  A wooden laser etched coaster invited guests to both the rehearsal dinner and the morning after brunch. The scroll was rolled and tied with a tag before it was all packaged inside kraft box with a matching label.

letterpress llama invitations

July 22nd, 2014 by

Jen Lin and Lawrence were married in California.  Llamas in love where an important element in their invitation design, as they had llamas at their wedding.  Jen’s cousin provided the illustrations for us to incorporate throughout the set.  Gray and yellow graced the letterpress RSVP card.  The invitation was printed on wood, and a vellum map wrapped it all together!

Peter’s top secret birthday invitations

July 15th, 2014 by

When planning Peter’s surprise party I knew I wanted to send out physical invitations.  It was important to me for the event to be a surprise and I couldn’t risk e-vites, emails, or texting ruining it.  TOP SECRET was letterpress in silver on a black cover.  Inside a thick 220lb fluorescent white card was blind printed with a deep impression. It was mailed in a bright yellow envelope.  It set the tone perfectly. The best part – the party was actually a surprise!! Happy 30th to my dear husband, Peter!

rocky mountain invitations

July 9th, 2014 by

Eric and Amy were married mountain top in Keystone, Colorado in July. Their invitations were elegant and a bit rustic. The front of the main invitation was blind printed with a hand-drawn design to accent the silver and gold text.  We used the same hand-drawn design printed in gold on the back. Gold edge printing and a coral ribbon finished up the set.

summer vineyard photo shoot

July 7th, 2014 by

It was a rainy day in July at the beautiful Pleasant Hill Vineyard in Maryville, Tennessee. Julie Roberts and a team of fabulous vendors worked together to create a lush, lovely set for this pretty photo shoot. The invitations were printed on thick kraft and connected together to create a three panel set. A frayed strip of fabric wrapped the invitation and held a sprig of dried rosemary in place. We used a fabric wine bottle wrap as the menu, this way just a couple could be used per table. As place-cards each guest’s name was on a fabric band that was tied around a peach. This added texture and color to each place setting.
