If you want a classy and elegant, but not necessarily “traditional” Save-the-Date card for your upcoming wedding, you may want to consider an elegantly designed and letterpress printed Save-the-Date postcard, like the one we created for Jen and BG’s upcoming wedding in April! We finished printing the lovely save-the-dates that you see above a couple of weeks ago, and I’m still really excited about how they turned out! These postcards are printed in a deep, rich, black ink on 100% cotton Duplex Crane Lettra Pearl White Paper. Because the paper is a duplex weight, these cards are super-thick, which allowed for a nice letterpress impression on both sides, without any push-back from one side to the other, and they can also go through the machines at the post office, without getting munched!
These postcards are an A6 size, and feature a gorgeous, super flourish-y text treatment of “April Fools’ Day” on the front and lots of fun flourishes, and a variety of fonts on the backside for all of the necessary Save-the-Date information. Check out some of the photos we took below!
I just love the mix of fun fonts that Jen had us use for the design of these cards! There’s nine different fonts, total, in this design. Using that many fonts is tricky to do well, but I think the design of these turned out just awesome!
Thanks so much for working with us on these Jen and BG! I can’t wait to start designing your wedding invitations! Talk to you soon!
