Project Description

Being a designer, I felt like it was important to get our wedding invitations just right. I knew that I wanted to keep our designs clean yet modern with a traditional flare. For me, it's all about finishing touches—creating a design that would incorporate an icon that would represent both of our names. Clean lines and elegance was key. I achieved this by packaging our invitations with black twine, sealed with a wax stamp of that icon. Letterpress on 600GSM paper, using a blind impression and black ink, allowed us to create the textural feel and elegance we were hoping to capture.

Production Lesson(s)

Who knew designing for yourself would be such a challenge?! When you're a designer, you dream about designing the most amazing and elaborate invitations for yourself, and then when you actually sit down to design and sketch ideas, you are your worst critic! Oh, and getting the seal on the invitation took more tries than I care to count—each invite took a minimum of 10 minutes to assemble.”
