Dominic + Devin’s Summer Camp Wedding Invitations

I wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye to summer – and while the cooler weather is starting to grow on me, I’m making a last grasp for summer sunshine with these camp-inspired wedding invitations from Blake and Irene at Sparkvites. The invitation suite features a canoe silhouette, a custom illustration of the wedding venue, and vintage-inspired design details. Fun!


From Blake and Irene: We designed this custom invitation for Dominic and Devin’s September wedding at Lake Morey in Vermont. Their camp wedding theme was reflected from start to finish as we worked with them on everything from save the dates to the guest itineraries.


The invitation and envelope were letterpress printed, while the additional cards were digitally printed and featured a custom illustration of Lake Morey Resort, along with a pretty kraft envelope and rounded corners for a more vintage look.





Thanks Blake and Irene!

Jessica + Joe’s Modern Butterfly Wedding Invitations

Who knew butterflies could be so modern? Rachel from Robinson Press created this wedding invitation suite for a couple who were married this past summer. Rachel kept the suite simple with two main pieces – the invitation and RSVP card – and incorporated the couple’s romantic color palette of pink, plum, and gold. So pretty!


From RachelJess and Joe wanted their invitations to embody the essence of summer, so we created this bright and playful butterfly design based on a Viennese Art Nouveau pattern and used a romantic color palette to add richness and depth.


This is a three-color, two piece, wedding invitation suite, plus a custom monogrammed notecard. It is letterpress printed on 100% cotton paper in a natural white heavyweight stock. The envelopes are plum and metallic gold.



Thanks Rachel!

Kaitlin + Taylor’s Urban Winery Wedding Invitations

I love the juxtaposition of organic elements with a very urban venue in these wedding invitations from designer Christa Alexandra. Created for a wedding at The Brooklyn Winery, the design was inspired by the reclaimed wood walls and decor of the wedding venue. The wedding invitation suite features an organic color palette of soft green, taupe, and brown. Beautiful!


From ChristaI designed and printed this letterpress invitation suite for Kaitlin and Taylor’s wedding at The Brooklyn Winery. Kaitlin was inspired by an organic palette of leaf green, taupe, and brown. The venue, self described as an “urban winery,” boasts a warm ambiance, reclaimed wood walls and locally sourced decor.



We created a sophisticated invitation with an informal feel using pretty typography and pops of green. Staying away from the traditional vineyard vines, we chose to use leaves and thin branches to incorporate some natural elements into the stationery. The entire suite was lovingly hand-printed on my 1918 Chandler & Price letterpress.





Thanks Christa!

Jamie’s Modern Hand Lettered Bat Mitzvah Invitations

I’m completely in love with these bat mitzvah invitations from J at Grey Snail Press! With a fuchsia and gray color palette, the letterpress printed invitations feature J’s signature hand lettering, modern design details, and non-traditional RSVP card. So fun and so modern – everything a bat mitzvah invitation should be!


From J: I worked with Jamie’s mom to create a bright and bold invitation for her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah ceremony and reception. Jamie requested a gray and fuchsia color palette, so we chose envelopes, papers, and ink colors accordingly.


The invitations were letterpress printed by Hounddog Press in fuchsia and light gray ink on bright white Lettra, then mounted on fuchsia backers. Fuchsia envelopes were lined with a gray and white chevron pattern.


RSVP cards were printed on fuchsia card stock in white ink with a simple J logo. They wanted a large blank area for guests to write messages rather than traditional RSVP options.


Thanks J!

Waverley’s Ombre First Birthday Party Invitations

I’m a big fan of the whimsical illustration of Catherine from Printerette Press – particularly when it comes to birthday party invitations (Catherine created Sophie’s first birthday party invitations last year)! And today Catherine is back with another first birthday party invitation project! Waverley’s adorable invitations feature an ombre effect in tones of peach and pink along with a floral envelope liner. Love!


From Catherine: This is a custom project we recently worked up for an adorable little girl’s first birthday party. The inspiration given to us by her mom – Lesleigh from pearls on a string – was “peachy tones ombre” for the invitation and “soft grandma florals” for the envelope liner. We chose to stay in a peachy/pinkish color palette throughout, but added a touch of brown in the floral envelope liner to give it that “grandma” feel the client was looking for. The final touch was ordering magnets of Waverley herself to add an extra fun element to the overall invitation.





Thanks Catherine!
