It’s always a great day when something from designerÂ Kate HolgateÂ shows up in my inbox! Â Kate created these awesome wedding invitations last year, and today she’s back with another gorgeous suite. Â Kate combined letterpress and digital printing, along with geometric patterns and lots of fun color, to create a modern and truly unique invitation suite for Sarah and Jeff’s Chicago wedding.
From Kate:Â Sarah and Jeff will be married in Chicago next month. Â They wanted a unique design that combined lots of texture, geometric patterns and interesting typography. Â Their gorgeous color pallet consisted of navy blue with accents of aqua and fuchsia.
Sarah and Jeff were a dream to work with; they had impeccable taste and were very open to ideas. Â Their production budget allowed for two of the pieces to be letterpress printed; we chose to letterpress print the save the date and invitation packet cover piece. Â Both incorporated a blind impression and navy blue ink.
The rest of the suite was digitally printed. Â We alternated patterns and colors on the backs of the individual pieces for a fun, colorful effect. Â Sarah and Jeff love to kayak on the Chicago River together, so I subtly incorporated paddle icons to personalize the design. Â Custom calligraphy gave a nice finishing touch. Â Overall, I think that the invitation suite turned out elegant and fresh.
