Kate and Nick’s wedding invitations and materials are a nice combination of letterpress and laser print. In fact, it is difficult to tell (at least from the photos) that the supporting materials aren’t printed by letterpress. The different elements compliment one another well and combine to make a very nice invitation set.

As a musician, Nick traveled often while we were engaged. He used to call me “his anchor” and drew little anchors on his letters home. When the time came to design our wedding invitations, it made sense to us to use the anchor symbol on our stationery. The anchor implied a bit of a nautical feel, but we also wanted to incorporate some elements that referenced Nick’s work. We included event tickets in the invitations, and each guest received a laminated all access pass as escort cards.

Budget was somewhat limited, so we were only able to letterpress the main folded card. But, Elana at Spoon & Sailor printed them beautifully. The supporting elements were all printed on a home laser printer, on matte textured paper. Everything was cut out and assembled by kind friends and family, except for the tickets, which were perforated by a local copy shop.
