While he wouldn’t recommend the tedium of hand-producing these edge-painted and embossed wedding materials, designer Chris Martinié and his friends Enrique & Febe got to make some good memories in all those hours they spent assembling.

Project Description

Two of my friends became engaged earlier this year, which was the perfect opportunity to show my appreciation for them. They wanted something simple yet elegant, and purple. My approach was to use as few elements as possible and let the type do the talking. A 5-by-5 rubber stamp was used for the primary type lock-up and a paper wrap was used to house the event's info. The painted edges of the paper and the emboss were the final touches of quality that brought the invitations together. Of course my friends were on a budget so we ended up doing them all by hand, which was a project all on it's own.

Production Lesson(s)

Due to the size of their families, the DIY aspect of this project was much more tedious and time consuming than we could have imagined. So to avoid the crazy amount of labor involved I would probably suggest paying for the printing process so as to skip the hassle. But, on the bright side, the long hours of putting all the invites together created a fun memory for us all to look back on and laugh about.”
