Our Antique French Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Our Avignon design in letterpress

This Saturday we letterpressed the invitations for our first contest winner! We are so excited with the way these invitations turned out. The design is classic and simple, so very French. The design is, in fact, inspired by an antique French pharmacy tin. We believe there are sources of beautiful design inspiration all around us…we just have to keep our eyes open!

Our neighbors have beautiful lavender flowers growing all through their back yard, of which they were happy to let us cut some!

This invitation measures 6.25×6.25 inches. Here we printed it on our ultra-lush, 236lb, brilliant white, Savoy paper. This stuff is amazing! We can’t wait to print our next round of invitations!

This design can also be made more rustic with the addition of twine and a kraft paper envelope.

The RSVP card. This paper is so thick, it makes for an amazing, super crisp and deep impression.

Our Swarovski Crystal Spider Halloween Card

Happy Halloween!

We just finished flat printing our crystal spider cards. The design is rather minimal, but for a little bling, we added a black Swarovski crystal to the spider. That little detail really makes it pop.
So, basically, after we finished drawing the design and flat printing the card, we used tweezers and clear drying craft glue to hand attach each crystal to each card. Doing a detail like this doesn’t require lots of materials, but it does require lots of patience!
At the beginning of October we plan to take this design to letterpress. We think it is going to be really amazing in letterpress with crystal. We’ll post a photo of that too, when it is finished.
