2010 seems to be just flying by folks! While we’re still well in the middle of printing wedding invitations for 2010 though, I’m excited to show off our first 2011 invitation to you today! We designed these lovelies for a couple getting married in the Philippines this coming January and letterpress printed them last week.
I love how warm and tropical this design feels! Chatie had us design and print her invitation, which is a standard A7 size, and was printed on Crane Lettra 100% cotton Pearl White paper. We created a lovely and whimsical starfish/bubble pattern along the bottom and right edge that was blind embossed for a wonderful, textural effect. We also created and blind embossed a fun interwoven monogram of Chatie & Hanzy’s initials for the top. All of the wording is handwritten calligraphy by Fran Heider of Little Flower Calligraphy. We’ve worked with Fran on numerous projects and her work is always absolutely gorgeous! All of the calligraphy was made into a letterpress printing plate and printed by us, using a light turquoise ink. Check out some of the details below.
I absolutely loved working with Chatie to create her invitations, and I know that her wedding in the Philippines this upcoming January is going to be just beautiful! Congratulations Chatie & Hanzy and all the best to you!
