I admit it, I'm a paper snob. When I think of my wedding invitations, I think of luxury. I think of traditional, heavy papers.
I dream... of letterpress.
It is crisp, perfect, and yes, traditional. But many letterpress shops are doing great new things with it!
The White Aisle has some beautiful stuff! I love the way they combine classic elements and big, bold graphics. Seems like just what Boy and I are looking for! Even their thank you cards are adorable!
Of course, no chat about letterpress is complete without the georgeousness of Hello! Lucky. You can read their exploits occasionally over on WeddingBee Pro. They have an urban vintage style with lots of cute touches. Their stuff is to die for!
Parklife Press is my front runner right now. Their prices are resonable, and they work with each couple to design one-of-a-kind invitations. I'm not one of those "my wedding must be unique" people, but I love the idea of custom designing our invitations. I've been fantasizing about barely noticable letterpressed pawprints on the envelope flap and a georgeous monogram designed by our talented friend.
They're the perfect match between classic and funky, no? Check out the rest of their stuff here, and drool along with me!
