Weddings | Alicia & Tim

Alicia1In the spirit of Throwback-Thursday, I’d like to show you one of my favorite wedding invitation suites from a couple of years ago that I just hadn’t gotten around to putting up on the blog, until now!  This suite was designed by New York City designer, Jihee Wu, for Melbourne, Australia couple, Alicia and Tim!  I love how modern and timeless this suite is and how it utilizes many of the lovely things that letterpress printing has to offer, in such an elegant and classic way!
Alicia3Alicia4Alicia & Tim’s invitation suite featured a 5.5″ square invitation, letterpress printed in a charcoal grey ink on 100% cotton Crane Lettra Pearl White Paper.  The suite also featured matching grey envelopes that were letterpress printed with black ink.  All of Alicia and Tim’s pieces incorporated a blind embossed monogram, which you can see at the top of the invite in the above photos.

Other pieces included a single color (gray) reply postcard and a smaller reception card with their wedding website info at the bottom.

We also printed a gorgeous set of simple, modern thank you cards, and matching menus and ceremony programs for the day of the wedding.  Alicia & Tim’s thank you cards and thank you card envelopes are pictured below!

Weddings | Emma & Joseph

I’ve shown this particular design before, but I love it so much that I figured it was time to show it off again!  The wedding invitation suite you see above was originally designed by Jihee Wu, and printed by us, for her own wedding in 2011, but Australian couple, Emma and Joseph, saw it on our site, and loved it so much, that they hired Jihee and I to recreate it for their wedding!

Their suite includes an A7 size invitation, printed in two colors, with a coordinating envelope, and an A2 size reply card with coordinating envelope.  All of the pieces were printed on Crane Lettra Pearl White Paper.  The envelopes we used were from Waste Not Paper Company.

I just love the contrast in this design between the super-modern, san-serif type used for the majority of the invitation and the lovely, custom script Jihee created for the names.  I also love how we made the single line “joyfully invite you to their wedding” stand out by printing it in such a bright pink!  The address on the invite envelope was designed to match using the same script for the names, stretching across the flap and the same modern type for the rest of the address.

The reply card and envelope that you can see below also featured custom script and modern type, printed in grey ink!  I love it!!
