Turcan and Ev wanted classic wedding invitations with a few bold yet sophisticated elements. Â They worked with Sarah from The Happy Envelope, who created a stunning black and white invitation design. Â The entire suite was letterpress printed on super-thick paper, with a vintage rose illustration on the reverse side andÂ cobalt blue edge painting. Â So pretty!
From Sarah:Â Turcan + Ev had a church wedding followed by a reception at the bride’s aunt’s private residence in Maryland. Â The couple wanted something stunning, but still classic in tone. Â Their wedding colors were black and white with cobalt blue accents. We decided to letterpress print everything on super thick 4-ply board so that we could paint the edge with a bright pop of their blue as a fun surprise.
The reverse side of the invitation was letterpress printed in black ink with a vintage rose botanical illustration. Â The custom printed liner on the inner envelope was also cobalt blue for that extra “wow!” factor. Â The bride wanted the reception card to really sing and stand on its own, so we letterpress printed it in two inks, utilizing her cobalt blue for a bit of visual pop. Â Calligraphy by Feast Fine Art + Calligraphy sealed the deal!
