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.

Designed by Elliot Jay Stocks.

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.

Cotton & gold letterpress wedding stationeryCotton & gold letterpress wedding stationeryCotton & gold letterpress wedding stationeryCotton & gold letterpress wedding stationeryCotton & gold letterpress wedding stationeryCotton & gold letterpress wedding stationeryA 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.

Wedding invitation, information card and a thank you card letterpress printed in gold ink on both sides of A6.

Silver Anniversary Invitation

We were asked by Darren at Do Creative to print this stunning silver anniversary invitation for The Royal Oak Furniture Company. The cover has the simple but extremely effective idea of age rings of a tree surrounding the ‘25′.

Darren wanted this image debossed deep into the paper but we suggested we run a very, very, very faint tint rather than no ink at all. So we ran a few test prints with no ink and also some varying tints. We felt this tint gave the impression an warmer feel.

The invitation details were printed inside with the same tint and a second colour taken from the PMS supplied. The #EasterEgg fine delicate detail of the logo held well under the extreme pressure of our printing press and the debossed tint was a strong contrast to the second colour.

The invitations were printed on our 1969 Heidelberg platen onto 300gsm 100% cotton paper, 2 sides. Dimensions: 290 x 145 with a centre crease.
