Letter Press Wedding Invitation Suite

Hello from the tip of my nib!

This recent letter press printed wedding invitation suite was done through Paces Papers, who are wonderful to work with. We used a chocolate ink on an ivory stock throughout. Outer and inner envelopes were done in a matching ink in copperplate. The inner envelopes were especially fun, in that you've got all that white space all to yourself. Plenty of room to flourish and the mail carrier won't penalize you for illegible caps or numbers.

We also tried something new by including a transportation card. The client asked to include a photo of a trolley. Instead, I create an illustration of one in the same style as the typography and linking it to the headline of the card to propel everything forward. Fun!
