Uptown [the allure of modern style]

Friday, June 21st, 2013

Letterpress wedding invitation: Our Uptown wedding invitation suite demonstrates the flawless coalescence of modernity and timelessness. The invitation is paired with an optional soft, suede backer, which strengthens the approachable nature of the pieces. Neutral hues, clean layouts, and unassuming typefaces converge to impart the pieces with a sense of warmth and calm. The inviting suede is juxtaposed with rich double thick cotton blend paper that has a slight blush undertone, which gives the pieces an unmistakably luxurious and upscale feel. Uptown is sure to please both the bride and the groom with it’s perfect combination of feminine and masculine touches. The Uptown wedding invitation is also extremely well suited for a sophisticated Bar Mitzvah invitation, Bat Mitzvah invitations, or for custom party invitations with a refined modern vibe.
