Katie + Mark’s Coaster Save the Dates

We’ve all seen save the dates in the shape of magnets, bookmarks, and post cards, but this is a fun idea – coaster save the dates!  Designer Bill Coombs sent over these fun letterpress coaster save the dates for a wedding in Minnesota next spring, printed in a sweet and preppy pink and navy blue color palette!

From Bill:   The bride wanted something preppy, fun, and sophisticated, with a combination of different typefaces.  Her colors are navy blue and light pink.  Her wedding will be an elegant event at a beautiful country club in Edina, Minnesota.  We decided a letterpress coaster would be a memorable and fun way to get the word out.  The save the dates were printed at Dick and Jane Letterpress in St. Paul Minnesota, a small shop that specializes in letterpress invitations.  They do wonderful work, and have a great eye and appreciation for the letterpress process.
