I worked with the ever wonderful Jennifer Olmstead on this gorgeous invitation suite, which had a deep purple paired with slate grey. I will tell you now, dark color + large solid areas is no easy feat for letterpress. And these cards are rather interesting in that only the invitation is letterpress printed. To save on time and cost, the response postcards were flat printed on the same Reich Savoy 118lb 100% cotton paper that the invitation was. Using the same paper helps to make the invitation suite more cohesive when different methods are selected for different pieces.
Here are some closeups of the invitation. I love the way the P pops out amongst the ornate swirls and dark background:

I hope you enjoyed these wedding invitations! Congratulations again to Carmen and Shane!
