“Letterpress continues to be a growing force in the invitation industry, as they expand their designs through the use of metallic foils, colors, edging, and digital liners.” — Evvy Diamond and Amy Bass, Owners of Nota Bene
“For the client’s floral themed, vintage chic backyard wedding, we subtly incorporated her color scheme of yellow and teal into the various pieces, and played with both handwritten, calligraphy scripts and retro fonts. The vintage, retro feeling was carried through into custom signs made for the groom’s beer cart at the reception.” — Barb Johnson, Owner of More Than Words Fine Papers
Mad About You
“Classically elegant invitations that are rich in colors and textures are the perfect way to announce your wedding. Incorporate a beautiful jewel tone into you invitation stationery in an unexpected way — a deep purple envelope printed using an ecru ink, for instance.” — Anne Lehman, Owner of Anne Lehman Design
“The Save the Date card does not have to match the wedding suite.” — Sara Hargreaves, Owner of Scribe Fine Papers
