Earlier this year we did some printing for a lovely couple up in Maryland, Julie and Todd. Julie’s sister designed her wedding invitations and she hired Twin Ravens Press to do her letterpress printing! We didn’t print Julie’s entire suite of paper goods, but we did letterpress print her wedding invitation, Save-the-Date postcards and reply cards (she did her envelopes herself)! All of Julie and Todd’s pieces were printed on Crane Lettra 100% cotton Pearl White paper in either one or two ink colors. You can see their invite above, but let’s take a look at their Save-the-Dates first.
Julie and Todd’s Save-the-Date cards for their October wedding in Maryland were A2-size postcards printed in one ink color, a nice Aubergine purple. Julie’s sister designed the lovely type treatments for all of these pieces as well as the two cute little birdies that you see on both these postcards and their invitation. The front of the postcards was predominantly decorative, while the backside was set up like a regular postcard, with the wedding information on the left-hand side and a place for a stamp and recipient address on the right. Aren’t these cool?!?
Their wedding invitation was designed in a similar style and featured the same, sweet, long-legged birdies on the left side of the A7-size card with the rest of the invitation information in a variety of fonts completing the rest of the design. The invitation was printed in a slightly redder aubergine purple than the postcard save-the-date, and black ink. I love how the use of two colors in this design really makes the couple’s names, Julie’s parent’s names and the wedding date stand out! Their reply card was a simple 4bar design featuring the same fonts as the invitation, printed entirely in purple ink. Check out more awesome close-ups below!
Julie and Todd were a really great couple to work with and I’m sure their wedding last month in Maryland was just lovely! Thanks so much for working with us Julie & Todd and congratulations!
