This whimsical letterpress wedding invitation suite comes to us from Kristin Joiner of 622 press, based in Hamilton, Bermuda! Here’s Kristin to tell us more:
Krista came to me in early 2015 in search of custom letterpress coasters for her save the dates. She was looking for nature-inspired, hand-drawn elements accompanied by hand-lettered typography that wasn’t too scripty or formal. It was so fun to break out my sketchbook for the leaf and laurel elements, then I vectorized them so they would print cleanly.
See more after the cut!
The save the dates turned out great, so when she got in touch this January about invitations, I was thrilled! I created consistency throughout her wedding suite by repeating those same laurel designs I drew for her save the dates. To elevate the design of the invites just a touch, I switched out the script typeface from her save the dates for a more formal calligraphy inspired font. I’m absolutely in love with it—especially in white ink on her envelopes! So gorgeous.
We then tied up the package with a wrap in her soft rose accent color. It’s the perfect accompaniment to the custom-mixed slate gray ink I printed the rest of the suite in! I always encourage my brides to order their thank you notes along with their invites. One less thing to think about after the honeymoon—plus I offer a discount when they’re printed at the same time! I love Krista’s thank you notes… they really let the laurel design shine!
After we were finished with the more formal parts of her wedding stationery, Krista reached out for one last ingenious project: In lieu of a guestbook, she distributed sheets of custom mad libs around the tables for guests to complete. I just love the thought of all her friends and family giggling as they played this classic childrens’ game, and her and her new husband enjoying what I’m sure will contain hilarious jokes and great advice.
Lovely, thanks Kristin! For more information about 622 press, please visit her WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile or head straight to her website.
