Vintage-Inspired Save the Dates

I’ve got lots of fun things planned for this week, but thought I would start off with some beautiful vintage-inspired save the dates from Jen at Starshaped Press.  Jen works only with antique letterpress type and ornaments, not custom magnesium plates or photopolymer plates, so each one of Jen’s invitations and save the dates has a true vintage vibe.  For Julie and Seth, Jen used art deco type for a 1920s and telegram-inspired save the date:





I’m always amazed by the beautiful antique fonts and details in Jen’s collection. For Lauren and Mark’s save the date, Jen incorporated a floral ornamental pattern along with antique type from the 1880s (!) and gold ink for a simple yet totally elegant save the date.





Awesome work Jen!  Thank you so much for sending these over!

  1. Wow! Wow! Wow! I admire your dedication to the craft, Jen. It’s fabulous (borderline crazypants?) to only use antique type and not plates. I am blown away. Gorgeous!
