Check out this gorgeous set of Save-the-Date cards we designed and printed for a North Carolina couple back in January! Lauren and Warren's Save-the-Dates are fairly simple, but feature all of the necessary information (names, date, place and web address) in a very clean and gorgeous design. Lauren and Warren are using a tree motif on this piece and throughout the rest of their invitation suite, so we decided to make that a very central element on the Save-the-Date card. This card is an A2 size, measuring 5.5"x4.25" and was printed in two ink colors: copper and aubergine, and paired with a purple envelope from Waste Not Paper Company.
Above is the Save-the-Date card all by itself. I love how simple, yet elegant this design is, and the tree motif we used turned out just stunning. The copper ink that was used for their names and the tree gives the design a little extra sparkle, without being overwhelming. The paper Lauren chose is 100% cotton Crane Lettra Duplex, which is twice as thick as standard Lettra. This made for a really thick and substantial card, and a fantastic letterpress impression. Here are some close-ups so you can see all of the little details better:
For the envelope, as I mentioned above, we chose to go with purple shade from Waste Not Paper Company. Lauren and Warren's address and a much smaller version of their tree motif were letterpress printed on the back flap using copper ink and a small, framed motif with an infinity symbol and their upcoming wedding date was printed in the top left corner on the front of the envelope.
Aren't those just stunning?!? I'm currently in the process of working with Lauren and Warren on the designs for their main invitation suite, so if you like this design, check back soon to see their actual invitations! Thanks so much Lauren and Warren!
