Today’s featured invitation suite is this lovely design brought to us by Monique from Metal Doily Press, based in Los Angeles, CA! Monique says:

The clients for this suite were my husband and myself! We fell in love with our wedding venue, The Ebell Club of Long Beach, and were excited to create something that reflected the classic Hollywood style our guests would see in the venue on the big day.

See more after the cut!

I started by hand lettering our save the date information, which I then turned into a custom rubber stamp. I stamped the design onto thin chipboard in black ink and paired it with a teal envelope to hint at the colors that would be coming with the invitation suite.

We are both big type nerds and are not big on traditional approaches so we continued using chipboard but this time for the invitations & hotel suggestions/driving directions we used 100 pt. chipboard which was perfect to use in letterpress printing the designs. I’m a big fan of Jessica Hische so I purchased Buttermilk to use as the main display font and we paired it up with Fournier for the informational copy.

The letterpress printed invitation is a 3-color piece: a blind impression chevron stripe at the bottom and text in teal and black. With our thick 100 pt chipboard, the hotel information was easily letterpress printed on one side and the the driving directions to the venue on the other. I chose to flat print the RSVP card as I would be having those all mailed back to me.
