Sara + Jeff’s Laser Etched Wood Veneer Wedding Invitations

These wood veneer wedding invitations from Fourth Year Studio are so pretty.  Dianna and Emily from Fourth Year Studio created these invitations for a couple that loves hiking and the outdoors, and wood veneer proved to be the perfect medium!  Dianna and Emily combined etched wood veneer with flat printed pieces in a faux bois pattern for a modern and organic invitation suite.

From Dianna and EmilySara & Jeff came to us for invitations for their southern fall wedding.  They are avid hikers and love spending time outdoors together.  We knew we wanted to incorporate wood and laser etching into their set.  The concept was to incorporate their outdoor lover spirits with the beauty of the location they have chosen to get married.

Sara & Jeff’s initials area carved into the tree trunk on the front and on the back a map was etched of Clarksville, Georgia.  A perforated RSVP postcard was flat printed and tied to the custom map.   Once guests removed the postcard to mail back their RSVP, it revealed the map underneath!

Corresponding thank you cards were flat printed with a wood grain detail.  The invitation suite was packaged in an olive green kraft envelope.  Sara and Jeff’s ceremony programs were also flat printed and stitched onto fabrics with a similar color palette.

Dianna and Emily created a second proof for Sara and Jeff that didn’t end up being produced, but I just had to include it here since I love this proof design as much as the actual invitation!  This design features laser cut paper layered over a piece of basswood to create the effect of stenciled text.  The two pieces were attached with string for a modern and organic feel.  So pretty!

  1. These are so cool! As an architecture student in college I would spend many late nights watching the laser cutter thinking about the cool things you could make with it… anything other than the model I was making! Thanks for sharing : )

  2. Hooray for Dianna and Emily! So happy to see you ladies featured here! Gorgeous stuff, wonderful women.
