A New Orleans Wedding

New Orleans Invitation Set

We designed and letterpress printed this wedding invitation set for Monica and Gregory who are having a destination wedding in New Orleans.  Monica wanted something fun and playful yet sophisticated, which we achieved by playing around with a bunch of different patterns of squares and stripes. We have to say that this is one of our favorite wedding invitations because of the combination of different elements from the bold patterns to the mounted invitation and enclosure.

The invitation was printed in charcoal and fern color ink and mounted on matching stardream paper and charcoal enclosure. The knockout of the intersecting square pattern on the invite creates raised white squares for a unique effect. The square theme was continued on the additional pieces as shown below for the RSVP, Welcome, and Accomodation cards. The envelope was made from the same fern colored stardream paper and embellished with a custom liner to tie the whole set together.

    Dear Dolce Press,

    I’m a newbie at letterpress and still learning the ropes. I have found your blog very educational (second from top after Briar Press). And wow, really beautiful designs and wonderful results 🙂

    I was wondering how you manage such a deep impression on the paper. Do you use Photo Polymer or metal based? Does Photopolymer work on 600gsm papers?



  • Dear Dolce Press,

    I just love the invites of the New Orleans wedding. Such quality in the work and paper. I am planning on moving in the direction of lettraPress stationery, and I just find your blog so helpful and informative. I am a bit scared of taking the plunge but excited at the same time:) I was also wondering if there is colored letterpress papers out there, pastel or darker?

    Royal wishes,
