Margaret + Patrick’s Understated Letterpress Wedding Invitations

I love the classic and understated elegance of these wedding invitations, sent over by Courtney from Sideshow Press.  Courtney worked with the couple to develop a type-driven design approach in a neutral gray and white color palette.  In addition to the beautiful design, I love the use of non-traditional materials like whitewashed wood veneer and raw cotton!

From CourtneyMargaret and Pat’s invitations and save the dates were inspired by the event space, Durham Ranch in California, and the simple, understated vibe that the bride and groom were trying to create.  To integrate the pieces seamlessly with the surroundings, we chose a neutral palette of gray and white.

We chose a type driven approach to the materials, all of which were printed on various textures that represented Durham Ranch.  The invitation suite was letterpress printed on 100% cotton paper and white washed wood veneer paper, then packaged in letterpress printed muslin bags and hand stuffed in a custom box with raw cotton.
