Since we haven’t posted in awhile, I wanted to give everybody a real letterpress treat – an invitation suite we printed last year. This was our first time printing in Hawaiian and our first tea length invite. The whole suite was designed by the bride Brytani Bedard, one half of the talented Wishtree Invitations & Stationery company in Ottawa Ontario. Brytani wanted her invitation to be beautiful and unique, and it certainly was! The invitation is tea length (3 3/4″ x 9″), RSVP is a double-sided postcard and the program is square. She also designed sweet little table cards so the guests could write messages to the happy couple during the reception. Customizing your invitation suite to suit your needs and taste is not always an option but when you design them yourself, it is!
All pieces are printed on Crane’s Lettra 100% cotton paper and we letterpress printed a blind (no ink) pattern and then the text in gorgeous Pantone 7532. We always talk about the challenges we face with letterpress printing and this time it was the ink. No matter how hard we tried, we could not get that shade perfect! Thankfully, we were able to get on the phone and order a pre-mixed tin for the job. We still have lots left if you love this colour!
