entry #12: our FRENCH QUARTER invitation inspiration

Classic black and white: a look that will never go out of style! Our French Quarter is an extravagant letterpress wedding invitation that is a celebration of the architectural distinction of the Vieux Carre. With its graceful wrought iron balconies, lacy galleries and hidden courtyards ideal for a fancy fete, the New Orleans French Quarter is the perfect inspiration for a simply sublime invitation. Using just one classic color of ink and clever thoughtful font pairings, the French Quarter invitation is a triumph of texture and movement. Letterpress printed in 1 color on 100% cotton rag paper, this marvelous invitation design can be customized to fit your personal ink and paper color preference. The optional Envelopments® enclosures and envelopes are available in a wide assortment of colors and finishes. The French Quarter wedding invitation suite would also be wonderfully suited for shower invitations, Bat Mitzvah invitations, or custom party invitations with lavish decorative flair. Take a peek below at the inspiration behind this lavish invitation suite, and come back again for more mood boards coming soon from our new Umi 2 album!
