The Debonair invitation perfectly showcases some of my favorite letterpress details! Elegant typography crisply pressed into soft cotton paper, paired with wide pink stripes. The slightly translucent nature of letterpress ink means the paper texture shows through a bit in the pink portions, giving the design a slightly vintage feeling.
The Hope wedding invitation is one of the original wedding invitations designs in Banter & Charm’s wedding collection. It was also the first design I offered in letterpress, and it’s been a favorite with brides all along. It’s easy to see why it’s such a popular wedding invitation! Delicate lace paired with sweet script fonts give this invitation a romantic and vintage feel.
The first version is the original design, shown in 2-color letterpress (Powder and Pewter) on 110# Fluorescent White cotton paper.
The Sophisticate design was one of my all time favorite invitations to create. I love a unique typographic layout (it’s like solving a puzzle once I find the perfect spot for each portion!), and the soft flourishes give a slightly feminine touch to an otherwise formal wedding invitation suite. Sophisticate is featured with two color letterpress printing and edge painting on double thick cotton paper for a truly luxurious look. It’s an elegant invitation suite is perfect for a formal wedding or black tie event!
The Harmony letterpress invitation design is simply stunning in blind letterpress and warm gray ink. The neutral colors in this invitation give it a soft, romantic feel without being too “girly”. The blind letterpress portion (also known as blind impress or deboss) is achieved by pressing an uninked printing plate into the paper. It leaves a subtle impression that begs to be touched.
The Besotted invitation design is one of the first designs I offered at Banter & Charm, and it’s still popular today. With good reason – this elegant letterpress wedding invitation features an elegant lace motif in mint green along with formal typography in soft gray letterpress.
