samantha and dirk will be married in just a few short weeks at the stunning washington memorial chapel in valley forge, pennsylvania. the celebration will then continue at their own 100 year old farm house that they have been restoring themselves. we couldn’t wait to begin working on this suite. they loved eclectic fonts, overlapping patterns and vibrant colors. they opted for a vintage poster style letterpress invitation with a palette of purple, orange and teal. their rsvp postcard featuring an etching of their farm house and folded details cards were stacked on top and held together with orange bakers twine. the suite was completed with a website tag and mailed to guests in beet purple envelopes. this is another fave for 2017!
sneak peek of our sketch for a custom guest sign-in sheet. busy prepping for a wedding taking place beside the pool on a beautiful estate this coming weekend!
wishing everyone a relaxing weekend after the first post-summer full week back to reality!
throwing it back 7 years to this classic beauty! we designed this kite save the date for michelle + eric’s philadelphia wedding and still love it the day it was printed and assembled! the all gray letterpress kite was tied with a hand dyed sterling silk ribbon and finished off with a silver key. we personally feel that there needs to be more kite-shaped stationery out there in this ben-franklin-lovin’ city!
kelly and dario were recently married at the end of august at the water works, a gorgeous, historic landmark in philadelphia. kelly wanted to incorporate a custom watercolor of the neoclassic venue by myrtle & lloyd that she used in her save the date. we printed the painting on a translucent white vellum and layered it on top of the invitation. the invitation, reply and details card were all printed in charcoal letterpress and blind deboss on cotton cranes lettra. this printing method, along with the pairing of delicate cursive and modern typefaces achieved the couple’s vision of contemporary meets classic. the pieces were bundled neatly with gold cord and mailed out in a coordinating cranes lettra envelope. wishing these two a beautiful life together!
wishing you all a very relaxing labor day weekend!!
briana and nicholas will be exchanging their wedding vows in front of family and friends this spring. we were beyond excited when they told us they wanted to incorporate vintage handkerchiefs into their save the date package! she supplied us with the most colorful hankies to work with. they were screen printed with a transparent scalloped white shape and navy ink. each was neatly folded into a card backer and held in place with navy jute twine. these pretty little bundles arrived to their guests in geometric lined envelopes with die cut address labels. we are looking forward to designing their invitation suite!
getting ready to give these little letterpress beauties a wash in watercolor . . .
hope you all have a great weekend and you get in every last bit of summer fun you can!
