Sam + Adam’s Hand Lettered NYC Wedding Invitations

I love a modern twist on a classic black and white wedding invitation! J from Grey Snail Press sent over these New York City wedding invitations featuring her hand lettering and custom illustrations of New York icons like the Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building. I’m particularly loving the white ink on black paper for the main invitation. Such a bold and modern choice!

From JSam and Adam came to me to create a custom invitation suite for their wedding in Brooklyn. They wanted to incorporate some iconic elements of New York City into their suite.  Their venue at the Liberty Warehouse is the only location in New York where the Statue of Liberty is face front as she looks onto France.

The invitations were hand lettered and screen printed on black card stock in white ink with a simple drawing of the Empire State Building. Textured blush RSVP postcards, with a stylized illustration of the Statue of Liberty were printed flat in black ink. Corresponding enclosures were printed on 120# cream cardstock in black ink. Blush envelopes completed the suite and were hand lettered by Grey Snail Press.
