A letterpress wedding invitation has to have

the Wedding Invitation Essentials.

This custom wedding invitation was designed and printed a few months back and we think it has just the right blend of sugar and spice. We packed classic typography and a bold sense of style with feature and form. The real secret is in the personal flavors we added which came from really getting to know with the bride to be. The brides excitement was obvious and she was an absolute doll. We wanted to give this invitation the same sense of vibrance. We take a lot of pride in matching a couple to their invitation design and this one was no exception. Gold foil and slate grey ink on 2-ply. Oh - and who doesn't enjoy a little fun with an ampersand. Contact us for your custom quote today!

A Classic Letterpress Invitation

Trends will come and go but classic black on white will never get old. Never underestimate just how important your wedding invitations can be. They are the first glimpse your guests will get of what is to come and they truly set the tone. With this Benson + Robbins invitation suite, the couple simply commented, "we want a design we're going to love in 50 years time." We went typographic with the layout and ultimately I think these letterpress wedding invitations really nailed it. Grateful to work with Julie and George and we wish them the best on their wedding day! letterpress_invitations

Gold Foil Business Cards

We just finished these super cute cards for Nicola Harger. She's a photographer based in the North Loop area and her work is absolutely stunning. Check out her site and maybe if you get a chance to meet her, you'll walk away with one of these beauties?!?!

Minneapolis Skyline Invitation

minneapolis-skyline-invitation-1 minneapolis-skyline-invitation-2sno

These sat on the table begging to be photographed for months but we'd just been too busy to get a photo session in. Finally, we managed to make it happen this afternoon. True to our city, here's a really wonderful Minneapolis skyline wedding invitation set we did for T&M. We talked about a few different directions for the invitation set but once we worked up the art for the city skyline, the answer was clear and we ran with it! Blue on Blue duotone set with snow (since it was a winter wedding). If you're looking for an invitation design with some local flavor, perhaps this is just what you've been looking for??

Night Moves

We have a funny schedule here. It has absolutely nothing to do with 9-5 or Monday through Friday. Our work schedule is always up in the air depending on what our customers need. I can happily say that we've never been a team to shy away from hard work on long hours but at some point, even the busiest days eventually creep to a moment of perfect stillness and accomplishment. We appreciate each and every client we've worked with over the years. If you need letterpress work, contact us.

Day or Night, we're on it. you can also follow us on instagram for the crazy 24 hour version of our work. @dickandjane_letterpress

Black Foil on Black 3-ply!

photo 2-8

Another one for the books! This piece was designed by the groom and she really had her mind set on black foil over black stock with the varnish. I think we were all a little nervous if this was going to work out as well as we all had hoped. However, in the end, the invitation suite really exceed everyones expectations. This is a really great example of just how much a simple black can in-fact be quite a complex beast with a lot of shade variation. We're so grateful to Stephanie for having the guts to stick to her guns and see this black-on-black concept all the way to the end!

Apples & Cinnamon

round 2  

We did this fall wedding duotone set for Anastasia and Robert around this time last year. The set had been photographed and ended up being used in a few displays for wedding shows. Meanwhile, we completely overlooked adding a pic to the blog for all to enjoy. The set was based on our Spring Leaf design and produced on a natural white paper with a wonderful fall color pallet. An absolutely darling invite suite for a fantastic couple!

Mystery explained!

Often time we wonder what happens to the pieces we produce for customers. The jobs can be so different from one to the next.

We received an email from a past client, Jordan Fretz who had us produce a set of very elaborate coasters. Turns out the final product was packaged in pairs for guests and included a pair of individually wrapped bags of tea and honey. Very cool idea indeed! Jordan did a great job on these and we just wanted to share a quick pic of the coasters for all to enjoy.

Many thanks Jordan!

Erin and Nick Follow Up

Erin and Nick followed up with us last week. You may or may not remember their previous invite set? It included tons of pointy fingers, calendars, and funky text.  Any hoot... They needed an additional tidbit card to match their original wedding invitation design so we came up with this little number printed on a tiny tidbit card.

Thanks for visiting the letterpress blog!  It's been a very very busy wedding season but we are determined to keep on this blogging track. Lots of good stuff around for us to share so check back often for more updates.

A Very Wild Wedding

Kristen and Nicholas are super-ultimate Minnesota Wild fans.  When they approached us with the idea to turn the standard wedding invitation into something a little more edgy, the idea wheel started churning.

We thought: only a die hard fan would allow hockey tickets for their wedding invitations.  But not only were Kristen and Nicholas completely receptive to the idea--they loved it.  The gloves were off! To put it mildly, the ticket concept was uniquely them.  Few other invitations we've designed here in the letterpress shop can compare to the intensity of these. Two-color, color overlays, a little trapping and perforation along one side for that ticket stub look; These invites have all the bells and referee whistles!

We want to thank the couple for their creativity, trust and willingness to be a little more daring than the norm.  The results of this round of printing were incredible and wouldn't have been possible without their team spirit.  The popularity of this invitation has surpassed all our expectations, wildly popular among sports fans, travel aficionados and Minnesota natives.

Presenting "Hollywood!"

So we've had this design in the works for some time when along came Megan. She was looking for something a little more powerful than the more formal script style. We thought it was the perfect time to unveil it and it was exactly what she was shooting for. After a few small edits to really bring the design to life, we've started production. We're still getting everything printed but I just had to stop and sneak a pic to share on the blog today. The design is titled "Hollywood" and will be listed in our wedding collections soon.

Thanks for visiting the Letterpress Blog!
