Kristen and Jason were getting married at Ottawa’s oldest movie theatre and wanted invitations that fit the venue. Their designer Angela Poitras came up with this fun and unique design inspired by classic posters & movie tickets. We couldn’t wait to fire up the Heidelberg for this unconventional wedding invitation! The invitation & map were printed on Crane’s Lettra 100% cotton paper and the “ticket” was printed on French Paper’s Pop Tone paper. (French Paper is our new fave!) We mixed the blue ink by hand to match it to the French Pop Tone envelopes & the invite was then die-cut to the shape of a ticket. These invitations turned out fantastic and were perfect for this couple and for their wedding. Remember, letterpress is not just for damask patterns and muted colours, it can be whimsical, silly & fun!
