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.

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!

- "...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."
