These modern wedding invitations are the result of a fun collaboration between Kseniya of Thomas-Printers and Mike from Anticipate Invitations – and happen to feature my home town of Washington, DC! With the wedding location as the primary inspiration, the design features a street map background behind the main text and hand lettering for the bride and groom’s names. Beautiful!
From Kseniya and Mike: The inspiration behind Lesley and Brian’s letterpress wedding invitation was a street map of the wedding’s location in Washington, DC. Dupont Circle was chosen as the central focus and the abstract lines of the streets were printed blind (without ink) behind the main text on Crane’s Lettra 220# in Bright White. The couple’s names were hand lettered and printed in a punchy orange ink to compliment the warm gray; the rehearsal dinner card and response card followed suit.
