You’ve already seen the photos from the 2014 Paper Party during the National Stationery Show, but today I wanted to share a few photos of my most favorite detail from the entire party: the invitations! The party invitations have become a dream project each year, with an amazing team contributing to everything from design to printing to envelope addressing. This year I was lucky enough to work with Mr. Boddington’s Studio, Smock, Mohawk, and Meant to Be Calligraphy. I’m so excited to share the resulting invitations with you!
I was absolutely thrilled toÂ work with Mr. Boddington’s Studio on this year’s design â€“ they designedÂ everything from email save the dates to the tote gift bag design! I wanted the invitations to reflect the quirky sophisticationÂ that has become Mr. Boddington’s Studio signature style while alsoÂ complementing our floral party inspiration. We decidedÂ to keep the main invitation in classic black and white with a botanical wreath printed in shiny metallic gold foil â€“ all letterpress printed by Smock.
We printed the invitations on Mohawk’s Superfine Ultrawhite Eggshell 130 lb paper. The envelopes are Mohawk’s Loop Antique Vellum Kraft paper envelopes in A7 size.Â Mr. Boddington’s Studio also designed a fun patterned envelope liner to add a little surprise of color, which was digitally printed by Smock.
The amazingly talented Michele from Meant to Be CalligraphyÂ addressed the envelopes in her Jackson style. We picked a light aqua ink to complement the blue in the envelope liners â€“ I love the way it looks against the kraft paper!
I hope you love the invitations as much as I do!
