This custom invitation suite was such an exciting process. We were able to combine two printing methods: gold foil for the hand-drawn floret pattern and ivory engraving for the text of the invitation and reply card. So happy with how these came out and excited to now be offering them as a part of our invitation collection.
For Josh & Michelle, I took a very precious call from their doctor to find out the sex of their baby before making them this special wax-sealed card. It provided them with a private and beautiful moment to read the news together. The best!
From the offices of Martha Stewart Weddings, to my own Brooklyn studio, to the floral studio of Poppies & Posies, to several co-hosted workshops: in Portland with Neither Snow and at the letterpress headquarters of Regas New York, I had the pleasure of hosting quite a few calligraphy workshops in 2013 and met lots of lovely folks in the process. Stay tuned for the next series later this spring (subscribe for updates at the bottom of this post).
Some shots from my desk of escort cards and table signs for a deco wedding reception. Clean and simple but I really loved these.
We created invitations and illustrated table signs for Eve & Nick’s wedding on the rooftop terrace at the Gramercy Park Hotel. Great to see it featured on Style Me Pretty this past November! You can view the full gallery there.
Eve writes: “A brunch-themed cocktail hour included egg and cheese crostini, french toast bites, and mimosas, bellinis and Bloody Marys. In lieu of table numbers, we assigned each table a New York City landmark, illustrated and calligraphed by Paperfinger, who also designed our invitations. We set locations based on the guests seated at each table — for example, we sat at the Museum of Natural History table, the New York landmark where we got engaged, and in a winking nod to our sense of humor, we sat the groom’s high school friends, all native New Yorkers, at the Times Square table.”
This was one of my favorite new additions to our invitation collection: two variations on the oval watercolor theme, both with custom calligraphy for the full text of the invitation. The menu design mirrors the angled writing as can any other pieces in the invitation suite. This suite was featured in a shoot at the Brooklyn Grange.
This suite with reply card and envelopes starts at $1290 for 100 invitations. Receive a full sample set for $5.
Can always count on my momma for styling Paperfinger goodies very well. She’s just finished applying the wall decals and they look fantastic! Joy in the kitchen and we gather together in the dining room.
