Hi Everybody! These invitations that we printed last fall for Oklahoma couple, Kim & Jeremy, combine two of my very favorite things: classic elements and contemporary styling, with a fun and funky combination of paper and inks! When Jeremy first approached me about printing he and Kim’s invitations, they knew they wanted something a little out of the ordinary, and I think these black invitations with metallic gold ink and edge painting, really fit the bill. Their suite included an A7 size invitation printed on duplex-weight black paper with gold ink, a 4bar size reply card printed on shimmery gold, handmade Porridge Paper with black ink, and coordinating envelopes for both!
I really love Jeremy and Kim’s invitation design, which you can see in better detail above! Not only is the combination of gold ink on black paper really unique for a wedding, but I love how they were able to incorporate more classic looking flourishes and patterns into a really unique layout for their invite. I love the large, rustic-looking, scripty names in the center, and the slightly western, serif typeface used for the body text! They are romantic, rustic, western, classic, and just a tiny bit steampunk all at the same time! Love it!!
As you can see in the top right photo below, we also edge painted Kim and Jeremy’s invitations with shimmery gold edge paint for an added bit of shiny! Both the reply card envelope and invitation envelope were designed to match. Both envelopes were black, printed with gold ink, and featured the bride’s mom’s address inside of a fun rustic border!
For their reply card, Jeremy and Kim wanted to continue using unique colored paper, but they also wanted their guests to be able to write on these easily, so, for these, we just flip-flopped the colors and used a handmade, slightly shimmery, gold cotton paper from Porridge Papers and printed the design in black ink.
Thanks so much again for working with us Jeremy and Kim! Many congratulations!
