Chevron Stripe Wedding Invitation
November 20, 2013 § Leave a comment
In August I completed a chevron stripe wedding invitation for a bride in the town right near me. We went with a chevron stripe that wasn’t quiiite perfect. If you look close enough you may be able to tell. We didn’t want to do hand drawn chevrons, but the bride also didn’t want perfect computer generated chevrons either, so this was our happy medium.
This was a one color, 3 piece letterpress invitation suite, that the bride wanted to assemble herself to save money. We love to work with as many brides as we can and believe letterpress should be more widely available and affordable to all brides, thus we have creative ways for our clients to “save” on expenses from “assemble yourself” options to addressing envelopes yourself to even just ordering one or two letterpress pieces mixed with digital or your own other pieces.
I especially loved the RSVP cards, below, with the cute chicken, fish, and carrot for the different entree choices they were offering at the wedding. Those little images were hand illustrated by me with pen, scanned into the computer, turned into letterpress plates, and then printed.
Mallory was kind enough to email me recently to say “hi” and send some professional pictures from her wedding photographers to me! I love love love when my clients keep in touch and love when I become friends with my clients instead of just having a business relationship. The. best.
Here are pictures from her photographers showing her beautiful assembly job (hand addressed envelopes and bakers twine holding it all together!). Also, if you click to see the bigger image, you’ll notice the “return address stamp” on the RSVP envelope. We designed the address to match the invitation and had it turned into a rubber stamp for them to use on their envelopes and for all future correspondence too!
This design will be available up on the website soon for personalization/customization! That’s where you can fill in your own information and pick your ink color. It’s a great option if you’re on a budget, rather than custom from scratch invitations, because costs are much lower since the design has already been done. You know, just in case you’re interested.
