Modern and Elegant Wedding Invitation with Edge Paint and Letterpress Printing
This is a beautiful wedding stationery suite for an elegant wedding ceremony at Benaroya Hall with reception at Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle. (Fun fact: Chihuly's glass art assembly studio is just across the street from Real Card Studio.) Traditional heavy cotton invitation with letterpress printing in charcoal ink is made modern with the addition of a charcoal duplexed backer that we beveled and edge painted in matching gray ink.
The beautiful natural white cotton envelopes were lined in cement grey to match the backer, and of course the couple had a calligrapher hand address them to their guests.
For the day of the ceremony, the grooms chose petite trifold programs in a size that neatly fit into a formal jacket's breast pocket, and included a map of the area for their out of town guests.
And no formal wedding ensemble is complete without matching luxurious cotton personal stationery to make writing those gracious thank you notes a treat rather than a chore.
Real Card Studio created this elegant wedding invitation, program and stationery for Charlie and Kevin. Envelopes addressed by Matthew Sherman Calligraphy.
