Stationery Turned Invitations



I got a call a little while ago from a fellow Brooklyn couple looking for wedding invitations. They are having a very small intimate celebration and did not want to spend a ton on invitations but loved our aesthetic. That's the thing about letterpress that gets me sometimes - costs are so high, it's not always an option for people. They were not particular on colors, but wanted something bold - and needed them pretty quickly. I threw out the idea of flat printing their invitation on our letterpressed Bloom Flats and using our citron zigzag note cards as rsvps, and they loved it. Even more, it totally fit their budget. I'm currently doing place cards for them using the backs of the citron zigzag note cards used for the rsvp cards. I was thrilled to be able to accommodate and really loved the way they turned out! A big thank you & congrats to M&C!

ps - If you're looking for an affordable invitation - our Flats are 110# cover stock and go through most laser printers. We have several retailers who use them this way. Not a bad option if you're up for it.
