Custom Wedding Suite

As a custom stationer, I will be personally creating your invitations, and working one-on-one with you to make sure they’re exactly what you want and need.  I’m a designer and artist, so each illustration and image has been drawn, painted, or illustrated by me personally.  It’s incredibly important to me to get to know each of the couples who I work with, and to fully understand and work within their wedding aesthetic.

Below, I'll take you step by step through your wedding invitation pieces and possibilities. 

 

We start by deciding if you want to start from scratch with a custom invitation or if you prefer to start from one of our

semi-custom selections.

Upgrade Printing Options

Letterpress is the oldest print form in use. Blocks of metal or polymer plates with raised type are inked and pressed onto paper to indent letters onto the front and leave the back raised for a tactile, hand-crafted appearance.

Watercolor illustrations cannot be letterpressed. We recommend flat digital printing for watercolor illustrations. 
Suites with both full color illustrations and letterpress require a two process printing process. 

Foil is very similar to letterpress, however it differs because it leaves metallic impressions on paper instead of ink. 

Foiling gives a true metallic look and you can see the shimmer as you move the paper. Foil is a great way to add a bit of glam to your invitation design! It can be done alone or with a digitally printed base.

We are able to letterpress and foil in house.

Enclosure inserts

There are a number of ways to utilize enclosure inserts. The most popular one is the details cards. The details or Events insert will be helpful to present your website, all weekend events, airport, block room and more. 

You might want to have several insert cards, for example, one for events, one for reception (if the reception is on a different location that the wedding ceremony), and one for a map and other details. How many inserts to have is up to your personal style and budget. 

Often times wedding-related events that are planned ahead like rehearsal dinners and brunches that only involves a select group of guest should always be noted on separate cards, and never included on the actual wedding invitation. If all guests are invited then those events can be listed on the detail/event insert. 

If you love custom art, these inserts would most likely be the perfect place to add venue 
illustrations and maps.
