Amy + Blake’s Classic Black and White Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Some things just never go out of style – and elegant calligraphy wedding invitations are first and foremost on my list.  Melissa and Amy from Atheneum Creative sent over these beautiful black and white calligraphy invitations that they designed for Amy’s own wedding, along with some of the corresponding day of wedding stationery.  They partnered with PenDance for the gorgeous calligraphy and Sideshow Press for the letterpress printing – the entire suite is just lovely!


From Melissa and Amy: The invitation design was inspired by the texture and ornate details of the architecture inside the reception venue, the Corinthian.  We wanted something elegant and traditional.  Each piece in the set was uniquely designed using only black ink and texture.  The full bleed, blind press detail was a perfect complement to Crane’s cotton Lettra paper.  The script is beautiful hand calligraphy from PenDance, rendered even more stunning with letterpress printing by Sideshow Press.  The beauty of this design was all in the details.





We wanted the ceremony program to be simple and beautiful.  The intent was to not overdo the design or distract from the church or ceremony.  The names on the cover were printed with a gold foil stamp which was inspired by the gold details throughout the church.  The design of the menu came together after picking out the china for the dinner.  I used a gold foil stamp to pick up the gold rimmed china.


Thanks Melissa and Amy!
