Here’s another lovely wedding design that we letterpress printed earlier this year, this time for a couple in Indiana. Derek and his now-wife, Lindsay, are both graphic designers, and they designed their wedding invitations themselves and had Twin Ravens Press do their printing! Their invitations included a 4bar size rsvp card and a slightly-smaller-than-A7 invitation that was matted onto navy blue card stock and then mounted into a custom, digitally printed invitation folder that had other information about their registry, directions and ceremony.
Below you can see a closer photo of the center invitation panel. The actual invite was letterpress printed in two ink colors: a bright, chartreuse green and navy blue. If you look at the bottom of the invite too, you’ll notice some subtle, but pretty, blind embossed circles. I love all of the little details that Lindsay and Derek put in to the design of these invitations. After the invite was printed it was mounted onto a matching navy blue invite matte and then that was mounted onto the center panel of their folder.
Aren’t the blind embossing and the branch + love birds details in the above photo just stunning?!? I really love the way that all of the little details in this design came together!
Below, you can see images of the other two panels of the invitation folder. This folder was digitally printed on an 80 lb. Gravel Grey card stock from Waste Not Paper Company. The left panel was much smaller than the other two, and included a note from the couple about their ceremony and reception, as well as their registry information. The right panel was the same size as the center, and included an awesome map that Derek and Lindsay designed with the birds representing the location of the church where they were married, and the champagne glasses representing their reception location. They also had written driving directions for how to get from one location to another on this panel. When folded, this piece fit into a chartreuse green A7 envelope.
The other piece for their stationery that we printed, was a 4bar size reply card. These cards were also paired with chartreuse envelopes and were printed in navy blue ink with blind embossing. I love how the reply card is much simpler than the invitation, but still coordinates so well with their choices of fonts, ink color, design elements (like the little love birds) and the blind embossing!
Lindsay and Derek were so much fun to work with on this project and I’m really excited to be working with them again on some business cards for their design business! Congratulations and thanks so much again Lindsay and Derek!
