Earlier this summer we had the pleasure of working with a really sweet couple in New York City, Carol & Carlos. Carol had designed her wedding invitations herself and was looking for a letterpress printer to do her printing, when she discovered us.
I absolutely love Carol’s pairing of traditional Chinese and Latin/Spanish design elements to represent the two families distinct cultural backgrounds. The double-happiness symbol that you see at the top of the design is an element that is often used in invitations for Chinese couples, and dragons are often used in Chinese imagery as well. The phoenix on the bottom right corner of the invitation is an animal often seen in Spanish/Latin mythology and I think the way that Carol combined these elements was really neat! These invitations were printed on Crane Lettra 100% cotton ecru paper in a bright red ink. I think they turned out awesome!
Thanks so much for working with us, Carol & Carlos! If you ever need anything else, please don’t hesitate to let me know!
