My Adventure in Letterpress Part 2!
Posted 02 March 2009 - 06:05 PM
So in my last postI got my letterpress invites that my fiance and I designed, which looks something like this...
Here's the image of the blind-pressed envelope that has the same pattern as the bride's veil.
Now onto the fun stuff! Embelishment! Instead of the paper sleeves, I decided to keep with my lace motif and wrapped pretty lace ribbon around them. Then I wrapped the invites with leather cords and attached little accessories made of real aquamarine chips and freshwater pearls.
Here are my assistants Mr.Beastly and Mr.Raving Rabbid helping me string the stones.
Then I realized that the chips added too much bulk to be sent in a regular envelope! D'oh! Thus, I had to put them in boxes, which is another added expense...but I couldn't live without my aquamarines and pearls...
So Here's my row of calligraphy labels for the boxes. I enjoyed trying out the oblique pen.
I printed out the RSVP on nice,toothy watercolor paper with my Epson to save some money. Here's the finished product.
And lastly, I wrapped the package with some craft paper, and it's ready to be shipped!

Ms. AnacGracia, I saw that you embossed your envelopefolds! Knowing how much embossing costs at professional printer, what did you use to make them?! I'm curious!
