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).

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
