Alana + Dan’s Blind Emboss Letterpress Save the Dates

These letterpress save the dates from Alana and Krystal of Vellum & Vogue are just so understated and lovely. Created for Alana’s own upcoming wedding, the square save the dates combine beautiful calligraphy with a classic black and white color palette and elegant vintage-inspired blind emboss pattern. So pretty!


From Alana + Krystal: These save the dates were a particular labor of love as they were created for one of our own, our co-founder Alana and her fiancé Dan. Alana has always loved the look of tin ceiling tiles. For their save the dates, we wanted to create something that mimicked that same look and texture but in a neutral palette.


To achieve this, we opted for a square save the date card. The front was letterpress printed with vintage-inspired text and calligraphy from the talented Anne Robin. The back features a blind embossed pattern inspired by tin ceiling tiles. We love the textural feel the blind emboss created. The cards were then double mounted to create a heavier weight. We finished the look with a kraft string-tie envelope, lined in black with the same blind embossed pattern.




Thanks Alana + Krystal!

  1. Hi there! I find these absolutely stunning and would love to achieve a similar look for my wedding next summer. I’m curious as to where the black mailing labels came from? Thank you for any info!

    • Hi Alicia!

      The entire invitation suite was designed and produced by the ladies of Vellum & Vogue – I’d recommend getting in touch with them if you’d like them to create something similar for you!
