I love toile. Really really love. So I was thrilled when Erin at Lucky Luxe sent over these beautiful wedding invitations with a modern take on classic toile! The custom toile pattern is made from vintage engravings and was inspired by 18th century French toile textiles. Erin paired bright persimmon ink with classic black and white and mixed whimsical lettering with traditional serif text – all with incredibly chic results!
From Erin: To make the toile pattern for the invitation, we pieced together several vintage engravings of beautiful outdoor scenery and florals, and I was tickled to death to find the sweet couple taking a stroll deep in our bag of tricks.
French toile is typically printed in red, black, or blue, but we wanted to take this toile down a different aesthetic path. By combining it with quirky hand drawn lettering and a small, traditional serif, it just felt right to print in punchy persimmon ink with black text. The bride is a fashion maven and the bold color pairing looks like her wardrobe — another inspiration for the outdoor event.

Does anyone know how much something like this would cost? Looks like 3 plates that would be used for all the letterpress? Would love if post started giving cost so new designers and people could get an idea of costs. 🙂
Thanks for your comment! I don’t typically include price information in these posts because it does vary quite a bit based on the labor cost (which can depend on location), paper and materials, and other factors. These posts are primarily intended as inspiration for folks searching for the perfect invitation/idea for their own weddings, so I like to keep the focus on the design rather than the cost. Thanks for understanding!
Your best bet is to reach out to a local letterpress printer to get an idea of cost. Since the price of printing, paper and mark up fluctuates per stationery company. I would imagine that is why they don’t advertise costs.
Also Lucky Luxe has their specific pricing information on their site if you click on the link above and poke around. 🙂
Thanks Mrs J!
