Yes, this wedding invitation is beautifully crafted, but its true beauty comes from the custom lettering that dances on the card in perfect harmony—like the soon to be wed couple.

Project Description

This invitation was designed with the bride and groom at the forefront of the concept. Given the context of the wedding, the informal voice of the copy, and a limited budget, a hand-lettered and hand-pulled screen-print seemed the best option to represent the couple and their celebration. The result was invitations that were individually unique with an elegant yet humble feel.

Production Lesson(s)

We silkscreened these ourselves by hand at Interval Press in Sacramento, CA. To achieve a metallic ink that would not clog the screens, metallic bronze acrylic paint was mixed with clear silkscreen medium. This proved to work very well, although at times the ink was too thin and appeared less-than-sharp on the edges of the script lettering.”
