These wood veneer wedding invitations from Fourth Year Studio are so pretty. Â Dianna and Emily from Fourth Year Studio created these invitations for a couple that loves hiking and the outdoors, and wood veneer proved to be the perfect medium! Â Dianna and Emily combined etched wood veneer with flat printed pieces in a faux bois pattern for a modern and organic invitation suite.
From Dianna and Emily:Â Sara & Jeff came to us for invitations for theirÂ southernÂ fall wedding. Â They are avid hikers and love spending time outdoors together. Â We knew we wanted to incorporate wood and laser etching into their set. Â The concept was toÂ incorporateÂ their outdoor lover spirits with the beauty of the location they haveÂ chosenÂ to get married.
Sara & Jeff’s initials area carved into the tree trunk on the front and on the back a map was etched of Clarksville, Georgia. Â A perforated RSVP postcard was flat printed and tied to the custom map. Â Once guests removed the postcard to mail back their RSVP, it revealed the map underneath!
Corresponding thank you cards were flat printed with a wood grain detail. Â The invitation suite was packaged in an olive green kraft envelope. Â Sara and Jeff’s ceremony programs were also flat printed and stitched onto fabrics with a similar colorÂ palette.
Dianna and Emily created a second proof for Sara and Jeff that didn’t end up being produced, but I just had to include it here since I love this proof design as much as the actual invitation! Â This design features laser cut paper layered over a piece of basswood to create the effect of stenciled text. Â The two pieces were attached with string for a modern and organic feel. Â So pretty!
