Weddings | Anna & James

Check out this lovely and classic wedding invitation suite we recently completed for Australian couple, Anna & James!  Anna and James are getting married outside on the grounds of their church in Gleniffer, New South Wales, in April of 2014.  Anna had a fantastically clear vision of what she wanted for her wedding invitations, and hired us to turn that vision into a reality!  Her and James’ suite features an A7 size invitation, a custom made tag that has RSVP information printed on one side and information about gift-giving on the other, and coordinating envelopes.  The styling is timeless and classic.  All pieces were printed in black ink and feature a gorgeous, contemporary calligraphy font, contrasted with a classic roman typeface for the majority of the wording.  There are also some lovely, hand-drawn details decorating both the tags and invitations.

I just love the tree motif at the top of this invitation!  It’s so lovely and whimsical when paired with the calligraphy font that we used for Anna and James’ names.

Below, you can see a closer view of the tags.  These were custom laser cut out of the same cotton rag paper that we used for the invitations and then printed double-sided with the gift and RSVP information.  Each tag also has a hole drilled in it so that Anna could tie them on to the invitation with either twine or a ribbon.

I loved working with Anna and James on this suite, and I think the results are just beautiful!  If you’re looking to create a similar style for your wedding, please don’t hesitate to contact us!  We would love to work with you!

Weddings | Amanda & Rhett

Check out the beautiful calligraphy that we letterpress printed for Louisiana couple, Amanda & Rhett’s, classic wedding invitations for their March 2013 wedding at the White Oak Plantation in Baton Rouge, Louisiana!  The gorgeous calligraphy for these invites was done by Kathryn Podorsky of Della Carta Studio, and then letterpress printed by us, in black ink on 7″ square, luxurious Arturo Fine Stationery.  These were paired with matching inner and outer envelopes.  The outer envelopes featured Amanda’s parent’s return address in calligraphy on the back flap.  Gorgeous!!

Weddings | Jackie & Brent

One of the things I get asked for, all the time, is whether or not we can “put a modern twist on a classic wedding invitation”.  The answer is “Yes!”.  Twin Ravens Press prints lots of different “classic” and “traditional” looking wedding invitations, that incorporate modern elements into their design.  For example, check out the suite that we created above, last year, for Massachusetts couple, Jackie & Brent.  Jackie and Brent wanted a classic, elegant, black & white wedding invitation suite that incorporated a few modern details.  Their suite included an invitation and reply card that featured black ink and blind embossing.  Matching, white envelopes that were printed with black ink and a paper + ribbon belly band to tie the suite together.  We lined the invitation envelope with a custom printed, light blue, damask liner for a touch of color!

As you can see below, the invitation itself is traditional looking.  It features a nice, crisp letterpress impression in black ink, script names, roman body font and a decorative blind embossed pattern at the top and bottom to frame the text.  These invitations were printed on super-thick, duplex-weight, 100% cotton paper.

As I mentioned above, both sets of envelopes were white and were designed to match the invitation.  The reply card was also printed on duplex paper stock and featured blind embossing on the bottom of the card.  Jackie & Brent’s belly band medallion was printed in black ink and featured their initials as a scripty monogram.  Look how pretty it looked, tying their invitations together with an ivory, satin ribbon!

I love how this suite is a classic, black & white letterpress suite, making it perfect for just about any formal occasion, yet it incorporates some modern and whimsical elements like the belly band and damask envelope liner to add a splash of color!  Contact us if you’re seeking something classic, with a contemporary twist for your upcoming event!
