after designing christina’s wedding invitation suite, her family returned to us with a request to create stationery to celebrate her new arrival! we created a modern, square letterpress baby shower invitation for her celebration held at kanella. the invitation was digitally printed on a luxurious cranes cotton cover stock and the mother-to-be’s name was pressed with a bright poppy ink! the colors and design were inspired by the bright felt pom pom garland they had hung in the baby’s nursery. the square card was mailed in a grey envelope with a modern animal pattern envelope liner which included christina’s favorite furry friend, a llama. guest addresses were printed in a charcoal ink. in addition, we created coordinating thank you notes. the cards were simple letterpress folded notes printed with the same vibrant palette. the thank you envelopes were grey with a bright aqua liner featuring similar animal silhouettes. we wish christina and adam all the best they prepare for this exciting new chapter!

from the moment we met elizabeth we learned that her favorite color was emerald green, so it only made sense to use that as the signature color in her invitation suite. elizabeth and edward recently got married this past september at st. thomas of villanova church followed by an elegant reception at appleford estate. we had our talented calligrapher, danica, from the butler’s pantry, hand write the entire invitation, monogram, and titles for the insert cards. her beautiful handwriting was letterpressed as an oversized invitation combined with digitally printed insert cards on matching cotton stock. we adorned the invitation with laurels and leaves to lend to the natural beauty of the estate’s gardens. we used a beautiful photo of the appleford’s boxwood maze for the front of the reply postcard. all of the pieces were bundled together with a billowy white silk ribbon bow. we also worked with elizabeth and edward to create some of their day of materials such as their program and thank you notes. wishing these two many years of happiness!
we are reminiscing about our time spent at the shore this summer…taylor and thomas were married this past june at the stately shore deal golf and country club. taylor requested a stylish suite that struck a balance between beautiful and fun. the invitations were printed using shiny gold foil and navy letterpress to capture a touch of the nautical vibe they were seeking. the reply card was a retro jersey shore postcard inspired by the couple’s favorite destination. the website tag was printed on a metallic gold paper with a half hole punch to mimic a ride ticket for the infamous boardwalk rides. the collection was bundled together with a gold and natural twine and mailed out in navy envelopes addressed with gold calligraphy.
we are feeling the fall vibes with leigh ann and trevor’s elegant november invites. this autumn wedding will be taking place at the bella voir manor in bensalem, pennsylvania. the tones of deep red, burnt orange and pops of gold create a warm invitation suite perfect for the season. we created a stacked package with invitation, rsvp postcard and details card with custom map. the letterpress invitation was printed with custom red ink and finished with a blind lace deboss detail, our favorite part! the rsvp postcard features a sepia-toned photograph of the venue and the package was tied with a rust silk ribbon and bold tag. everything was mailed in a deep red envelope with metallic gold calligraphy by danica from the butler’s pantry.
erinn + chris married in july at the very charming old st. mary’s church in philadelphia, followed by a beautiful reception at cescaphe ballroom. they requested a modern and clean invitation suite that showcased the first initial of their new shared last name. that ‘W’ along with the rest of the invite was letterpress with a charcoal gray onto a pearl cranes lettra stock. the reply card and reception info card were printed digitally to match. the pieces were mailed out in a soft gray envelope with printed guest addresses. we so much enjoyed working with erinn and chris, not to mention their very sweet and energetic wedding planner, renee patrone of events by renee.
kasey and scott were married this past june with a summer celebration at the westin philadelphia. because scott is a hot air balloon pilot (how cool is that?!), a balloon element was a must have! their letterpress invitation was printed in a charcoal grey with a pop of fresh aqua. a balloon similar in style to scott’s created a blind impression behind the details of their nuptials. their stacked rsvp postcard and details card fit neatly into a soft grey pocket. their package was completed with beautiful silk aqua ribbon and tied with a wooden monogram tag. these little bundles were mailed to their wedding guest in a matching soft grey custom addressed envelope. we wish these newlyweds much love and happiness!
mindy and chris welcomed their precious little poppy claire into this world in may. in addition to their new bundle of joy, they were also planning a cross country move to los angeles. talk about a life change!! so they decided to combine both announcements in a bright + cheery letterpress package. the letterpress birth announcement was printed in a fresh poppy red on a bright white double thick cotton paper stock. poppy’s adorable photo (shot by kevin monko) was attached with a patterned washi tape. the moving card was digitally printed and finished with the line say yes to new adventures. the cards were mailed out in a transparent vellum envelope filled with confetti and wrapped with a matching address label. this happy little package was inspired by this gorgeous hand lettered blanket, from how joyful, that mindy received as a gift. we are so excited to share this package, it makes us so happy. we wish this new little family the best of luck in la la land!!
anna and kevin will be saying their i do’s this weekend at the ashford estate in allentown, new jersey. the very formal and european style venue set the tone for the design of their sophisticated suite. their 5.5″ x 8.5″ letterpress invitation was printed on a luxurious ecru cotton paper in antique gold and charcoal gray. we adorned the top of the invitation with a custom monogram and used traditional fonts and flourishes throughout all of the cards. the reply and accommodations card were printed on a coordinating ivory metallic sheet to add a little sparkle. the invitation was wrapped in a delicate gold silk ribbon and metallic tag with the couple’s wedding date. the invites were mailed in a matching ecru envelope and hand addressed by the bride’s friend. we are currently finishing up a few day of pieces for the soon-to-be mr. and mrs!
alea + ilan will be saying their vows over memorial day weekend on the race street pier in the shadows of the ben franklin bridge. they will party with friends and family afterwards at the industrial lofty venue, power plant productions. this fun couple mentioned that there will be succulents and skulls sprinkled on the tables and we couldn’t wait to incorporate those in their invitation suite. casual handwritten and vintage block style fonts surrounded by wild blooms were letterpressed onto the invitation. the rsvp postcard was printed digitally onto a kraft cover stock. i think our favorite detail has to be the faceless skulls where guests could artistically fill out their response! a hand dyed silk ribbon was wrapped around the cards and tied tightly with natural suede leather and manila tag. a rubber-stamped wedding website with wolf etching is featured here because ilan proposed to his bride at a local wolf sanctuary. we believe that these personal details truly make an invitation one of a kind!
jillian and dave, who wed last june at the congregation rodeph shalom before celebrating amongst family and friends at the please touch museum, desired a balance of elegance and quirk for their invitation suite. their two color letterpress invites were entirely eggplant purple except for the pop of a chartreuse green bow tie indicating guests to sport their very own green bow ties in honor of the couples’ favorite color! their rsvp postcards were presented in madlibs style and featured an 1876 etching of memorial hall during the world’s fair as a homage to their playful reception venue. but the quirkiest part of their cards, perhaps, were the minute details that were added to show the couple’s personality. an alpaca etching was featured on the kraft paper tags, to represent the unforgettable day that dave proposed to jillian in front of a live alpaca! there is also a mini alpaca hidden in the postcard image along with custom monogrammed laurels. their suite was tied together with a chartreuse silk ribbon and tag announcing their website before being mailed out in pale gray envelopes digitally printed with guests’ addresses. we are thrilled with the completion of this suite, and wish this couple a lifetime of fun and fulfillment together!
