    I got my invitations last Wednesday and just haven't had time to post ... They were in the mail on Saturday, and we've been getting phone calls letting us know they've arrived! So, much fun!

    Anyways - they were designed with a friend of mine from church ... The invitation and the reply card are backed with a beautiful chocolate brown --- with the heavy textured ivory paper it makes them feel wonderfully heavy. The invitations are very traditional, but the backing and the right justified typeset is a little bit of a modern twist. We also opted for really heavy outer envelopes and skipped the inner envelope. Last, but not least, we did program covers --- it will be a small accordion style program, but I just haven't come up with the insides yet! :)

    The yellow in the pictures look a bit darker and a little more orange than it does in real life ... I'm not sure if it is my flash or the room lighting ... and the print is chocolate brown.

        Thanks Maura!

        She printed them herself. In fact, she just got a second letterpress --- it is really old and is hand cranked ... but she really loves it and I have to agree. It was a lot of fun to work with her - she does beautiful work and not only is she super-talented, but she and her husband are absolutely wonderful, wonderful people!

            I love them! I think Letterpress gives it that extra special touch. Your friend is really talented!

                  Corey - the invitations are superb! The yellow and chocolate look georgous together. And the roses are so pretty. You and your friend did a great job!
