A custom letterpress wedding booklet we created for Kimberlee & Lemuel.
Letterpress invitations are gorgeous but sometimes it can be tough to fit everything on a single A7 invite. While some people choose to include additional pieces like accommodation and registry cards, we created this wedding booklet as a way to keep all of the information together. We first introduced this wedding booklet concept back in 2009 (Leah + Zeb’s Wedding Booklet) and couples have been customizing it ever since.
There are a lot of different wedding invitation design but finding something that fits your day perfectly can be hard sometimes. It’s one of the reason we really enjoy customizing our designs for each bride. Kimberlee and Lemuel choose the wedding booklet to organize all of their information for their wedding.
The letterpress booklet contains four 2-color letterpress pages with a perforated reply postcard and a matching envelope. The two colors they chose were lilac (light purple) and metallic silver. The lilac ink color was mixed to match the envelopes (below).
After all of the pages are printed and cut down to size, they’re creased (to make folding easy) and held together with silver grommets (eyelets). Each page is made 1/2″ longer than the next to create tabs that are labelled: invite, visit, and reply.
This page is the letterpress invite with details about the wedding and reception.
The accommodation info was put on the third page.Often, especially with destination weddings, the bride and groom will coordinate with a hotel to arrange for special pricing for the wedding weekend.
The last page is the reply card. To reply the recipient tears the sheet along the perforation and puts the postcard in the mail. Perforating cotton paper can be a little tough, too much impression of the rule into the sheet causes the card to fall off. On the other hand too little impression makes it very hard to rip off cleanly.
