A single panel wedding invitation is rather refreshing given the recent trend to see wedding sets with lots of parts. Complementing this simplicity is the paper selection and the PMS choice—and it all comes together with the unity of the string. Nicely done.

Project Description

When life brings people together, it leads them to weave their story as one. A piece of string embraces the invitation and profile portraits were added on top, visualizing the initial concept. The invitation was created using book-binding cardboard and printed in one-colour letterpress technique.

Production Lesson(s)

Manual labor is always more difficult than you think. The quantity makes it more tiring and time consuming.”
