Shortly before Christmas I completed a lovely, formal set of wedding invitations for a wonderful couple in Massachusetts who are getting married in Rhode Island this June. Caroline and John wanted a traditional, formal invitation suite to compliment the style of their upcoming New England wedding, with a little extra something to give a nod to Caroline’s Chinese heritage. You can see all of the pieces in the suite pictured in the image above. The suite included an A7 size wedding invitation with corresponding gold envelope, a 4bar size reply card also with corresponding gold envelope, a 3.5″x2″ website card and a lovely, ribbon belly band with medallion to tie the whole suite together.
Continuing my metallic ink theme from yesterday, I present to you these lovely wedding invitations I completed a couple of weeks ago for North Carolina couple who are getting married in Florida this upcoming December! The bride, Joanne, designed her invitations herself (aren’t the decorative motifs at the top and bottom gorgeous?!?) and hired Twin Ravens Press to print them. We printed Joanne and Justin’s wedding invitation in two ink colors: burgundy and metallic gold on Crane Lettra Pearl White paper. I love the color combination she chose and I think it’s going to be lovely for a late-december celebration!
Metallic inks have certainly been a popular choice at Twin Ravens Press for the past couple of weeks! I just finished up this invitation suite earlier this month and boy does it make a gorgeous and very elegant use of metallic gold ink and blind embossing! The invitation suite you see above was created for a lovely couple, Rachel and Joseph, who originally contacted me back in June to create invitations for their upcoming January 2010 wedding in Coral Gables, Florida! Rachel and Joseph’s suite included an A7 size invitation with corresponding, lined envelope, a 4bar size reply card with corresponding envelope and 4bar folded thank you notes with corresponding envelopes. All pieces were printed in metallic gold ink on Crane Lettra 100% cotton paper in Ecru. The envelopes are Crane Lettra envelopes, printed in gold ink with square flaps.
Back in early June I created a really fun and elegant little set of Save-the-Date cards for a Seattle couple who are getting married in Florida this upcoming January. If you missed out on seeing that post back in August, click on the link above and go check them out!
A few weeks ago I completed a lovely and unique little set of Save-the-Date cards for a pair of good friends who are getting married in late August of this year. Sarah and Geordie were one of the first couples I met and became good friends with, shortly after moving to Eugene, and I am excited to be designing and printing their wedding stationery! We’re currently in the process of working on their main invitation suite, but I thought I would share their Save-the-Date cards in advance!
I wanted to show off a really neat set of pieces I finished last week for a couple just north of us, in Portland, Oregon. This is one of only a few pieces that I’ve printed in only metallic inks, but if done right, I think they effect can be absolutely stunning! In order to save some money, the bride and groom, Audrey and Eric, decided to have many of the pieces in their stationery suite flat printed, but hired Twin Ravens Press to print their actual invitation and invitation envelopes letterpress. Both pieces turned out absolutely beautiful (as you can see from the photo at the top of this post)!
Here is another wedding invitation set I recently completed that reminds me of why I love great, elegant, letterpress printed typography so much! When the bride, Cara, originally contacted me, she was planning on designing her wedding invitations herself and wanted a really clean, crisp, classic and elegant design. Her wedding colors are champagnes, whites, gold and pale pink. Her set included an invitation, reply card with envelope, reception card and an inner and outer invitation envelope. You can see the whole set above! In the following paragraphs I will go through each piece with more detail, show more pictures and talk about why I like these designs and ones like them so much!
lations Cara & James and thank you so much for your business!
