Our peak wedding season is coming to a close and I wanted to share some non-letterpress work that turns heads. We have found that offering our designs in both thermography (raised) and offset (flat) printing allow for budget-conscious folks to still have well designed, beautiful stationery. We also had a unique bi-lingual invitation that merged Cyrillic and English (very cool!) We came up with the idea of a 2 panel invitation that would be lifted to reveal the English translation of the Cyrillic front. The entire invite was housed in a "take notice" 7x7" pocket fold from Envelopements! (we're now an authorized Envelopements dealer!!)
We also had the chance to design some personal stationery for a bride who wanted a funky palette of orange and grey! We found the perfect lining paper from the amazing offerings of French Paper! The addition of an envelope liner or a pocket fold makes a huge impact on the person receiving the piece. I would advise if you do not have the budget to go with letterpress, see if you can find a few extra pennies to line the envelopes or find a unique way to house the invitation. You get a wonderful first impression that sets the tone for the interior pieces.
