Jill + Brian’s Modern Pink Letterpress Wedding Invitations

When it came time to design her own wedding invitations last year, Jill from Ruff House Art was definitely feeling the pressure – she wanted to create something that lived up to her own high expectations and a special experience for her wedding guests! Jill created a modern wedding invitation full of pattern and sweet floral details – all letterpress printed on soft thick paper. So pretty!


From Jill: We work with hundreds of brides each year to design their perfect wedding invitations, however, these invitations are extra special, as they are our own wedding invitations. We tied the knot in September 2013 with a small, quaint ceremony.


As a wedding stationer, there was so much pressure in designing my own invitations! I knew that our guests would expect nothing short of an awesome invitation and I didn’t want to disappoint. Pressure aside, it was such a fun process! I wanted it to be an experience to open our invitations – and I wanted our guests to get excited for our big day!



The invitations are letterpress printed on double thick handmade paper. In our retail and wedding lines, I work with paper maker Porridge Papers a lot to make paper for our products, mostly seeded paper. So I knew I wanted to use his paper as it is lush, soft, and prints beautifully! We chose a double thick stock since each piece of the wedding suite is double sided. I wanted to get a nice, deep impression on each piece without show through on the opposite side. The end result is beautiful: soft, thick paper, and deep printing impressions!





Thanks Jill and Brian!
