Style Me Pretty features: Labyrinth Invitations

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

We are excited to share that our Labyrinth invitations from our affordable Umi letterpress invitation collection were featured on Style Me Pretty! The lovely bride Ashlee married groom Devin at a stunning destination wedding in San Juan Puerto Rico (talk about a gorgeous setting!). We letterpress printed their invitations in soft Charcoal gray and sandy Shell inks on luxurious 100% cotton rag paper, perfect for an elegant and modern beach wedding. Ashlee mounted the invitations on charcoal gray backers and made belly bands out of handmade paper that complemented the design beautifully. We’re so thankful that we’re able to be apart of these special moments and it’s always such a treat to see photos of the happy couple on their wedding day. Congratulations to Ashlee and Devin, we wish you all the best!

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.

Billboard { the BIG debut }

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Letterpress wedding invitation: Not your average wedding invitation, the 2012 How International Merit Award winning Billboard invitation suite is a playful one-of-a-kind design that will make a BIG impact (literally). This quirky design depicts tongue-and-cheek copy, vibrant colors, a plethora of lively typefaces, and dynamic typesetting that is perfect for your unconventional event. The smart, cheeky invitation is playfully oversized (well, “Jumbo” actually), and each collateral piece is equally clever and fun in its own right. Your guests will have a great time discovering and savoring the witticisms unique to each piece! The Billboard invitation suite is also a perfect option for Bar Mitzvah invitations, Bat Mitzvah invitations, or for custom party invitations with a fun and funky vibe.
