I’ve been sick recently and haven’t been able to share these beautiful letterpress invitations with you. Being sick, I’ve had more time to keep dreaming of the wonderful details on these invitations that I helped photograph several weeks ago.
Aren’t the details so cute? Sophie Nicolay, who designs for Martha Stewart, created this invite for Daniel and Jessica. I love the little icons which make up the heart – they represent meaningful things to the couple.
The wonderful thing about working with a designer and a custom letterpress company like Dolce Press is not just the quality but all the meaningful little details. I think invitations, particularly from important events in ones life are things people save for a long time, I know I do. Long after I have lost or used the favors, cannot recognize half the friends in the photos, I have a carefully saved stash of graduation, bar/bat mitzvah, and wedding invitations mixed in with special birthday and holiday cards. And the best ones evoke the people themselves at that stage in their lives.
Look at the little chicken and vegetable, so cute and thoughtful!
I love the embossing that happens, it makes a great design pop! Cute, modern and thoughtful, combines with classic and enduring quality. This is why letterpress is the best; what letterpress does for ink and paper to make them so much more together.
For multi-event/ multi-part invitations, a booklet invitation like this one bound with eyelets are the perfect fit. They keep all the parts of the invite together in a nice little packet. The RSVP is perforated and tears off to be mailed in a standard A2 envelope. Don’t you love it? We do.
