Project Description

The combination of a star map pulled from a 1944 atlas and a Cape Cod Bay tidal chart inspired the elements of this destination wedding invitation. Using a combination of print methods (by Mama's Sauce), the star map pops in a silver screen print on French Paper duplexed to Crane Lettra 110 lb. Cover, on which blind deboss elements from the star map create structure for the letterpress type. All together an unconventional wedding invitation grounded in classic black, white, and silver.

Production Lesson(s)

Originally, the project was to have a colored paper duplexed to white, with the star map side's colored paper matching the type color on the reverse. Accurate color matching would've taken the extra mile so we resorted to trusty black and white.”
