2 colour wedding invitations on 425gsm cotton paper. Designed by Andy Broadwood.
Burgues is a beautiful new range of letterpress wedding stationery. The initials are printed with a tinted deboss deep into beautifully soft cotton paper. The typefaces were carefully chosen for their elegance and vast range of glyphs. We knew they would print with crisp definition and show letterpress impression to full effect.
We can adapt the design and adjust to 1, 2 or 3 colours as well as a offering a choice of other papers and shades.
Being a creative has it’s benefits, when you get married you get to design your own wedding stationery. Designer and illustrator Nathan Miller pulls it off and we think this invitation is just great. A confident mix of typefaces and illustration printed two colours on our Heidelberg platens. The invites are 140 x 210mm and letterpress printed on 425gsm cotton paper.

We love this 2 colour wedding invitation for designer Elliot Jay Stocks and his bride to be Samantha. Printed 2 colours both sides on a hefty 1000mic recycled board and finished with die cut corners. The recycled board is rough and uneven varying the impression across the print area adding texture and random imperfections, making each print different from the next.

Contemporary yet very classy this fantastic design by the art director (and the groom) Chris Hannah, looks stunning letterpress printed onto white and dark grey 540gsm Colorplan Duplex.
Careful consideration was given to the type of stock in order to enhance the elegance of this design. The monochromatic palette adds to the elegance of the design and the Order of Service which simply has four of the symbols from the design debossed onto Somerset 300gsm, 100% cotton paper, compliments it beautifully. The invitations were finished with rounded corners.
Whilst going through our archives earlier today we came across this beautifully simple design by the groom. After suggestions for paper we decided on a white/blue duplex board with blue ink mixed to match the board.

Emily had seen our Chrysanthemum correspondence cards and greeting card and asked us to adapt the design to create her wedding invitation and menu card. We discussed preferred colour palettes and provided a couple of layout and colour variations for Emily’s approval. The invitations and menus are printed on heavy 425gsm 100% cotton paper in lime green and brown and were supplied with matching envelopes.
The chrysanthemum drawing is taken from an original pencil drawing by Blush’s very own Alison and was originally part of a range of greeting cards. We are often asked to adapt one of our greeting card designs into a range of wedding stationery.

A beautiful combination of a swirling typeface, gold ink, cotton paper and letterpress printing resulted in this wedding stationery. Designed by Julia carefoot of Glorious Creative in Manchester and supplied by email for us to print. Julia looked into papers at the early stages of the project and had chosen a smooth board which we felt was not thick enough to enable us to achieve a deep impression on both sides of the cards. We advised Julia to go with a heavier pure cotton paper, Saunders 425gsm.

We recently printed this gorgeous wedding invitation. Letterpress printed onto 638gsm pure cotton board both sides, 3 colours front, 2 colours on the back. A6 postcard with a summer bunting theme designed by our customer.
Shelley took inspiration from vintage pattern and summer themes and got to work in her sketchbooks. Her drawings were scanned into the computer and “tidied up” in Photoshop. Then she added old typewriter and carnival style fonts into the mix and came up with a design full of nostalgia. You can read more on how Shelley created her design on her blog.
Shelley emailed her artwork to us and we got to work. We colour matched the inks to Pantone refs and a print out from her computer as it had the tone of colour she liked. Considering the weight of board used the job ran smoothly. First we printed the fuchsia and grey, front and back and finally the green on the front then trimmed to size. Packed and dispatched before the weekend for Shelley to start sending out.
