These wedding invitations come to us from Ruby’s Tuesday, a new boutique letterpress studio in New South Wales, Australia. Designers Mitch and Claire created these whimsical letterpress wedding invitations for a recent couple, incorporating hand lettering and a subtle split fountain (gradient ink colors) on eco-friendly chipboard. Fabric and buttons serve as a belly band to tie the entire suite together. So fun!
From Mitch + Claire: Nat and Sam wanted their wedding invitations to be earthy, “indie,” and a bit of fun! Each element both stands alone and works strongly together as a set with the combination of typeface, illustration, hand lettering, and recycled paper.
The invitation was letterpress printed using a subtle split fountain from dusky pink to burgundy. We also sourced a set of fabrics and buttons to use so that every invitation was just a little different. We printed on Crane Lettra 300 gsm for the map, with the invitation and RSVP card printed onto 330 gsm 100% post-consumer recycled chipboard.
Thanks Mitch + Claire!
