Save-the-Date | Sara & Jay are Getting Married!

IMG_6880

Happy Friday, everyone!  Check out the awesome, playful, wedding save-the-date postcards that we just finished earlier this afternoon!  These cards are roughly an A2-size, but were laser-cut into an Oregon shape, since the couple is getting married in Oregon this summer.  I loved the idea of doing a postcard in a unique shape and totally jumped at the chance to work with Sara and Jay on making these a reality!

Sara sent us the adorable photo of her and jay that you see above, and we had them printed on linen paper.  That linen paper with the photo was then duplexed onto a custom 100% cotton letterpress paper, and laser-cut into the Oregon shape that you see above.  After the laser-cutting was complete, each save-the-date was letterpress printed on an antique, 1912 Chandler & Price Letterpress in our shop in one ink color (a medium forrest green) on the reverse side!

These were designed to be mailed as postcards, so the information we printed is on the left, and Sara and Jay will put their guest’s addresses and stamps on the right side.

Aren’t they just too cool?!?  Thanks so much for working with us on these Sara & Jay!

We created the above postcard earlier this summer for the newlyweds to use as a thank you card after their wedding!  Their wedding photo was digitally printed on linen paper and then was custom duplexed to a 100% cotton backing sheet that we then letterpress printed with a postcard design!  This is a wonderful, classy way to incorporate a digitally printed photo into a letterpress printed piece!

Last, but not least, don’t forget baby announcements!  Twin Ravens Press had the joy of printing the announcements below for one of my best friends, shortly after the birth of her first son!  The letterpress printing was done in two inks and one foil color and then a real, black & white photo of Miles was tipped on to the left of the text!  Adorable.
