It’s so fun to see designers expand their horizons with each new project. Virginia and Mishayla of Plane Paper specialize in laser-cut greeting cards and stationery, but recently took on a custom wedding invitation design project. They created a modern chevron-inspired design for both the invitation and laser-cut envelope, partnering with their studiomate Repeat Press to letterpress print the invitation suite.
From Virginia and Mishayla: Nancy and Guy wanted a wedding suite that would remain timeless, yet have a modern edge. We combined a bold, graphic chevron pattern with a serif font and traditional wording – all in classic navy blue.
We designed a laser-cut envelope, our signature element, again incorporating the chevron pattern. The envelope was tied with a letterpress tag with the reception location and wedding website. Yellow baker’s twine added a pop of summer color and sense of playfulness to the suite.
We also designed ‘day-of’ elements, specifically flags wrapped around yellow and white paper straws. Both the flag and tag used the ‘v’ of the chevron to allude to their respective, familiar silhouettes.
Thanks Virginia and Mishayla!
