Abbey Malcolm Letterpress + Design Featured Wedding Invitation (1)

Today’s featured invitation is this gorgeous set by Abbey Malcolm Letterpress + Design, based in New Jersey! Abbey says:

As a boutique design and invitation studio, we aspire to create custom designs that really wow our clients. That was our goal in creating this invitation suite for Candace.

Each custom design process begins with a complimentary consultation with our clients so we can discuss the style, tone and color palette they envision, as well as, details about the venue, décor and floral arrangements. We also review our previous work and paper colors, shapes, embellishments and printing processes that are available for their suite. We try to really grasp our bride’s vision for their event so we can create stationery that coordinates perfectly.

When we met with Candace and her mother, Terri, to discuss the invitation suite for Candace and David’s wedding, we knew this would be no ordinary event! The wedding was being held at the beautiful Loews Hotel in Philadelphia and they wanted the perfect stationery to set the tone. We knew the couple was fond of letterpress, damask prints and black and white décor, so we got right to work designing their invitation suite.

The suite was elegantly encased in a stunning black, silk gate portfolio with a vintage crystal brooch. Once the guests opened the gatefold, it boasted a thermography printed, crystal-embellished vellum overlay that featured the couple’s last initial. Underneath, all the details of the day were letterpressed in black ink with a blind debossed, damask print.

Candace and her mother knew they also wanted more stationery for the “day of” décor, so we created other fancy details that included die-cut programs, ribbon and crystal-encrusted table numbers, signature drink signage, and more.

 The stationery we created for Candace was a designer’s dream come true! We had just as much fun designing the stationery as her guests had at the actual wedding!

    I think a little bit too much like how for the invitation, you used an italics font for the “and” and the “of” when everything else was normal. I know it’s supposed to look ultra-fancy, but I just thought it looked weird. Since I’m not a super refined critic, you may decide not to take me seriously, which I’m perfectly fine with.

      It’s definitely a style some prefer or don’t! That’s the great thing about working with a stationer… they can refine the invitation design to your style. :)
