Ngaio + Julian’s Hand Lettered Ombre Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday! Our first set of wedding invitations this week come to us from Sydney, Australia-based designer Ngaio Parr – for her own destination wedding in Los Angeles! Ngaio’s colorful poster-size invitations feature split-fountain (aka ombre) screen printing in bright pink and orange along with hand lettering and edge painting. Playful mad lib RSVP cards provide the perfect finishing touch!


From Ngaio: Although we live in Sydney we were married in Los Angeles, and wanted our invitations to be as bright and fun as the city itself. The invitations are designed and hand lettered by myself and screen printed as a split fountain into A3-sized posters by Half Hazard Press.



The response card (which featured a mad libs component) and details card were both screen printed split fountain and edge painted, as was the thank you card.



Calligraphic lettering on the envelopes and a custom address stamp helped make the envelopes as exciting as their contents. The most fun element of these invitations has been receiving some of the ‘colourfully’ filled out response cards.



Thanks Ngaio!
