A couple of weeks ago, over President’s Day weekend, three wonderful couples that we worked with were married. The first of the three were Lauren & Brian, who’s wedding stationery you can see above. I’ve been working with Lauren and Brian, and Lauren’s awesome mom, Judy, for several months now, and I’m so excited to be finally showing off their stationery! Their invitation suite, which you can see above featured a fun and modern A9 size invite printed in two ink colors: orange and black. The invite was paired with a matching A9 envelope that was lined with a really fun orange Lokta paper. We also designed and printed coordinating reply cards and envelopes to match.
Inspiration for a design can come from a variety of places, and for Lauren and Brian’s stationery, the inspiration was the fun, orange, screenprinted Lokta paper that we ended up using for Lauren & Brian’s envelope liners that her mom, Judy, found. I love the fresh orange-on-white pattern of this paper, and we found it to be the perfect motif to work with for Lauren and Brian’s stationery. Towards the top of the invite you can see a tiny section of the pattern printed above the typography in orange. Love it!
Several months prior to printing their wedding stationery, Lauren had hired us to print her Save-the-Dates. Their save-the-dates were 4″ square coasters, letterpress printed with black ink and paired with little black envelopes. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you may recognize the design. It was originally created for a couple named Vi & Lalo a year earlier.
Lauren loved the modern typography from the Save-the-Date design, so when I went to design their invitations, I made sure to incorporate some of the same fonts for consistency from the first piece of their stationery onward. However, for the main invitations, we also incorporated a second ink color (orange) and some pretty, modern script for their names.
Isn’t this a lovely invitation?!? These invites were printed on 100% cotton rag Holyoke Paper for a lovely impression that you can both see and feel.
Below is an image of the invite envelope so you can see the awesome liner better! The photo in the top right shows the flap, which was printed with Lauren’s mom’s return address in black ink. In the lower right image you can see their coordinating rsvp card and envelope. The rsvp envelope was printed with Judy’s address in orange ink, and the reply card featured the same script we used for Lauren and Brian’s names for the word “Please”, and the other font from the invitation for the rest of the text in black ink.
Gotta love that deep, luxurious letterpress impression!
For the day of the wedding, Judy also had us design a set of matching wedding menus for the reception. These were also printed on Holyoke paper in the same orange ink that we used for the invitations.
I just love how all of this stationery turned out! Judy told me that they were able to incorporate the orange patterned lokta paper into other decorative elements for the wedding, like decorative votive wrappers, etc. I’m sure everything looked amazing!
