Lindsay + Ryan’s Kraft Paper + Gold Wedding Invitations

I completely fell for these beautiful letterpress wedding invitations and Save the Date from SeeSaw Designs during Angela Hardison‘s guest posts on Black*Eiffel.  The invitations were designed and printed for and by one of SeeSaw’s own designers, Lindsay Tingstrom-Casey:


Luckily for me, Lindsay was kind enough to both send over a few additional photos of her invitations and share some of the inspiration behind the design.  Let’s start with the initial inspiration.

From Lindsay: We were married at the Phoenix Art Museum, a beautiful modern space.  The building itself focuses on a lot of natural, raw materials, and we wanted to continue that feeling with the invites themselves. Our colors included brown, cream, orange and yellow.



And now for the invitations!

The contrast between roughness of the natural kraft paper material and the clean crispness of the Lettra was really appealing to us. We knew we wanted the invite to have three pieces, so the chocolate enclosure was a perfect solution.


The blind deboss on the enclosure’s belly band was totally a happy accident – I had no idea it would be legible without ink, but lo and behold, it worked!



Lindsay printed both the accommodation enclosure from her invitations and her ceremony programs on thick chipboard:

Lindsay also carried the design elements from her invitation suite over to her escort cards and table numbers and printed them on similar material to the Save the Dates and accommodation card:



The letterpress that we used to print my invitations, a Kluge, was a recent addition to Seesaw’s studio.  We already had a C&P when the Kluge came to us, and this was actually the first job we printed on it.  Talk about pressure!  Our prior letterpress experience was limited, but it all worked out for the best.

I hope everyone has enjoyed Lindsay’s invitations as much as I have!  Thanks so much Lindsay, for sharing your beautiful wedding invitations and inspiration with us!
