Happy Monday everyone – I hope you all had a good weekend! Fingerprints are such a sweet detail to incorporate into wedding invitations, so I was thrilled when husband-to-be Aaron Leshtz sent over the gorgeous invitations that he and his fiancée, Harper, designed for their upcoming wedding. I’m also loving the playful RSVP card and fun kraft paper accents!
From Aaron and Harper: We designed our own wedding invitation suite. We’re both architects and wanted to put together a clean, modern invitation suite that also had some playful elements (the “learning curve” font, overlapping fingerprints, etc.). We’ve always loved brown kraft paper and the way it contrasts with crisp white paper, so we made sure to use it as an accent material in the suite.
For the fingerprints, we individually scanned our ring fingers and then traced the prints in AutoCAD (nerds, I know). We overlayed the two fingerprints to create the heart and are using is as a graphic thread to tie together elements of the wedding.
Our wedding invitations were letterpress printed by Norman’s Printery in Wyckoff, New Jersey. It is a 2-color design printed on cotton Lettra #110, ecru paper.
Thanks Aaron and Harper!
