My letterpress wedding invitations and calligraphy!

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to give props to Jeanie from .::: thePaperNut :::. for my beautiful wedding invitations...she did such a great job and I would highly recommend her for brides looking for more of a modern and non-traditional invitation.

 

I came across Jeanie's website from a blog, and I loved her modern looking invitations...I fell in love with the Henna design but was thinking that letterpresss is not in my budget even though I love it. Well I got pricing back, and because Jeanie was a new shop, her prices were already a lot lower than regular letterpress vendors - but I even did some tweaking from there (no belly band, envelope printing, etc.) to get the prices within my budget.

 

I will post the actual invitations - but my camera is being funny -so for now you will get the digital invites - just know they are way more beautiful in person:

After I received the invitations - I knew I wanted calligraphy...I wanted something different though, not your standard calligraphy....I found another awesome vendor on etsy: 2inspire on Etsy - Profile

 

Eleanor was great and did an amazing job...once again these pics are from her website - but mine look exactly the same - just with silver ink on white envelopes...she does beautiful work:

That's it - I promise to post real pics when I can get my camera to work :)

P.S If you click on the pictures you can see the invitations better - they are a little blurry on the screen

Hey date twin / Joann!

 

I'm waiting till the swine flu dies down a bit more before I send them out - I am thinking the end of May - what about you?

 

As far as calligraphy - I had 114 invitations, 114 return addresses on back, and 114 reply envelopes with my address on them to send them back to - final charge was $265 after some negotiating...I think she wanted around $330 at first?

I am thinking maybe June, only because I am making mine and only have 45 of the 125 I need (darn my ambition, it always comes back to haunt me).
