Zooey and Ben’s wedding invitations are another example of how letterpress just looks good. The illustrations work well with the typography and the mint green is a very soothing color. The paper banding is a very nice touch that adds a little extra to the whole package. I would like to have seen more of the red from the Save The Date card in other places as it stands out so much.
Ben and Zooey wanted a wedding invitation that reflected the sweet personality of their romantic, northwest-rustic wedding. Printed completely by letterpress, this two color invitation features classic silhouettes of the couple on the outside, paired with matching lovebirds once opened. The goal was to create a playfully illustrated invitation that still felt clean, simple and timeless. The suite included a gate-fold card, a flat card invitation, an RSVP card, and an illustrated map. All of the elements were held together with a paper bellyband, (also featuring the lovebirds) and tucked into an outer envelope.
