Ellie + Seth’s X-Ray Save the Dates

Um, how cool are these save the dates from Morgan and Arley-Rose of Ladyfingers Letterpress?!?! The bride and groom – both doctors – were inspired to do something non-traditional for their wedding save the dates, so Morgan and Arley-Rose worked with them to come up with the idea of an x-ray featuring signature Ladyfingers Letterpress hand lettering screen printed in a bright teal ink. Such a fun surprise for their guests!

From Morgan and Arley-Rose: We were approached by a pair of doctors (and the bride’s lovely mother!) to create their save the dates. During a chat with the bride-to-be, she shared a story that inspired them to want something a little non-traditional: A few years ago, a lawyer friend of theirs was getting married to another lawyer. Instead of sending a traditional invitation, they subpoenaed all their guests to their wedding! As doctors, they wanted to do something as witty and a little bit different, thus the x-ray save the date was born!

We were able to procure a chest x-ray from a stock photo website and hand-lettered their adorable “Looks Like a Case of True Love” type on top. We worked with our friend Jon who runs a great local silkscreen shop called Headlight Hotel to produce the films and silkscreen printing.

We also designed and ordered rubber stamps that read “Confidential” and “X-Ray Official Test Results – Do Not Bend” and hand stamped each envelope. Lastly, we letterpress printed their return address onto the backs of the string-tie envelopes.

In the end, their guests received in the mail what appeared to be some sort of confidential medical test result, when in fact it was a clever and fun way to let them know that two of their favorite doctors are tying the knot!
