Check out this elegant Save-the-Date set we created for Corona del Mar, California couple Lindsay and Shawn earlier this month!
When Lindsay contacted us to letterpress print these Save-the-Date cards, she already had her design pretty figured-out, but left it to us to make some minor design alterations to really make the letterpress work fantastically! The Save-the-Date card is a long, skinny #10 size and was printed in black ink on 100% cotton rag Holyoke paper in Antique White. I absolutely love this new paper stock! It’s soft, subtle and perfect for letterpress printing! The antique white color has that old-world, elegant, classy feel to it. For the design, Lindsay had us use a custom-made damask pattern, a custom-made monogram and some wonderfully rich, romantic typefaces for the design. We mounted a black and white photo of the couple on a 1/4″ black matt on top of the damask pattern on each Save-the-Date. Isn’t it pretty?!? Check out some of the details in the photos below!
Lindsay and Shawn’s Save-the-Date was paired with a romantic, super-light-pink envelope from Green Paper Company. We printed Lindsay’s return address on the monarch-style flap of the envelope in the same style as here Save-the-Date card, also with black ink. I love the way this envelope added just a hint of color to the otherwise classic, monochromatic set. It’s just a hint of a color, without being too much! Love it!
Lindsay and Shawn are having us design and print a set of invitations for them as well, in the coming months, and I’m really excited to see what we come up with for those! If you like this style, check back in to see their full invitation suite in the next few months! Thanks so much Lindsay and Shawn! Talk to you soon!
