The letterpress wedding set we created for Bronwyn & D-Jei was the very first one we ever created and it was a very fun project to work on. Every time we work on a wedding set it feels very special; we’re thankful that people choose us to play a part in their most important event of their lives. I must admit, it’s also a bit more burdensome on some level especially because of the extremely personal implications. That’s probably also why being praised for these projects feel so much more rewarding!
We first started with the letterpress save the date cards a while back. We came up with a few different designs and our lovely client decided on the one you can see in the photos. Later on, we created the wedding invitations and ceremony invitations to match the previously made save the dates. However, this time, we printed the invitations in navy blue ink, adding matching navy blue envelopes. In addition, we personalized the envelopes with the bride & groom’s names in blind impression. We ended up with a cohesive, simple, but modern and sharp letterpress wedding set that we’re quite proud of! The printing process went smoothly as well (yes, that’s a very big deal actually! On another project we ended up redoing the polymer plate several times before printing! Ugh!)
