Shauna + Darrell’s Rustic Etched Wood Barn Save the Dates

For her upcoming summer farm wedding, designer Shauna Luedtke plans to incorporate lots of handmade elements with a focus on hand lettering and typography. Shauna incorporated playful lettering into a beautiful laser etched wood save the date – in the shape of a barn! Shauna even added a magnet to the back, turning an already lovely save the date into a wedding keepsake.

From ShaunaEverything I’m doing for my wedding is handmade with a focus on lettering and typography. There will be lots of hand painted wood signage and I’m even having neon signs made with beautiful type. We will be married on a farm and the reception will take place in a barn. I wanted to capture the rustic vibe of the barn by using wood in the save the dates.

Originally I planned on silkscreening onto sheets of wood, but I thought etching it took the idea even further. I also wanted the save the dates to be something people would want to keep. I added a magnet to the back so that it could be a keepsake for years to come. The decor will very modern and bold which will contrast nicely with the rustic surroundings.

Each save the date is laser etched and cut, making each one slightly different from the other. I designed and ordered custom stamps through Canada post for the envelopes.
