We were cleaning the shop this week. While filing away some summer orders, I came across these really cool invitations! Pictured below are the final invitation, rsvp and thank you card designs for Jean Claude and Esther. They selected our Spring Leaf II wedding collection design. After a few quick tweaks, we finalized the beautiful compositions. I can't believe I overlooked adding them to our letterpress blog. I guess I'll never know how that happened? The final letterpress wedding invitations were printed on pearl paper in a sage and dark grey ink combination. Special thanks to JC and Esther for their creative attitude and proactive approach to finalizing all the little details required to make these invitations so tasty!

"A little birdie told me." Printed in a mint green on Lettra Fluorescent White.
Maybe it's just me but it seems like everyone is having babies these days? We at Dick and Jane Letterpress have always done a majority of letterpress wedding invitation printing but with the abundance of beautiful bouncing babies, our services were requested to design and print a birth announcement. The J's from New Mexico had been looking around a bit and wanted something soft, super cute, witty, and sweet. We had a few email and phone conversations about their project and went back and forth on a few variations based on the couples suggestions. In the end, we wound up settling on a very neat-o little design that came out of left field. How we got from giraffe's, flowers and initial caps to this design, I'll never figure out. We think the design turned out great and hope your enjoy.
Be sure to keep an eye out for "A little birdie told me" in our announcement collections later this summer!

What a surprise! We received a package in the mail on the third of July from ProjectWedding.com. Inside was a congratulations letter. Dick and Jane Letterpress has been chosen as one of Minneapolis ~ St.Paul's "Best of Project Wedding" vendors for 2008. WOW! Who knew? According to the details of the letter, the award is granted to the top 5% of wedding professionals in the area. You'll note that our site now has a "badge" sent from PW. Here are a few reviews from PW members.
- "...we came up with a really unique template, they were fun to work with, and I had the cards in less than two weeks."
- "...we were really able to express ourselves creatively with the two owners, who listened to us, offered their input, and made some really beautiful cards."
- "The invitation cards were perfect. My favorite part would be the save the date cards, which was a picture of a calendar. It was something unique and original that I just hadn’t seen before, and really loved. They really have so much to choose from, so much originality, that I think every bride should make them their first stop."
MUCH LOVE AND APPRECIATION TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS. We've had a blast working with you all and appreciate all your kind words and referrals. We're so happy that everyone is pleased with our wedding invitation printing. Check out projectwedding.com for vendor references in your area!

There's just nothing like it. Beautiful black script letterpress wedding invitations! This design was recently commissioned by Abigail Mikeworth. Abby hit the nail on the head during our first visit. "At first glance, I wasn't that into it but after looking at it a bit more, it just grew on me." There's something captivating about this invitation style. It's quite an exquisite composition to feast the eyes on. Enjoy!
