I’ve been feeling dark greens in a major way recently, so I was thrilled when Catherine from Printerette Press sent over these gorgeous rustic green and gold foil wedding invitations! The invitation suite features Catherine’s signature hand lettering and botanical illustrations, including some sweet details important to the bride and groom tucked into those illustrations. And the dark green ink paired with shiny gold foil? Such a great combination! Oh, and for any engaged couples out there – make sure you read all the way to the end for details on an awesome discount on custom wedding invitations through the end of October!
From Catherine: Of all of the weddings we’ve worked on, Rebecca and Bert’s wedding suite is one of our favorites. With so many fun elements such as gold foil and velvet, it’s hard to top! They were a joy to work with and were very excited to collaborate together on a truly personalized invitation.
We hand drew the laurels and wreaths featured on the several of the paper pieces. The invitation was printed with a mix of deep green letterpress and gold foil to add a bit of dimension. Tucked into to the laurels are little illustrative elements of importance to the bride and groom: antlers, a bunny, a bicycle, a bumble bee, and a set of weights because of Bert’s background as a personal trainer!
For the lettering on the invitation, we used a mix of hand lettering for their names and locations of the wedding and reception and a classic serif font for the rest of the invitation text. We highlighted the names of the bride and groom in gold foil on both the wedding invitation and save the date.
We loved the mix of green and gold foil for a fall wedding. We backed the invitation with velvet flocking that matched to the custom made velvet jacket that Bert will wear on the big day! We used a duplexing process to adhere the velvet to our cotton paper. Things like this always take a little bit of practice to get right, but we love it when we get to try new things!
