penny & gerald :: wedding stationery
Today we have a super lovely wedding stationery suite to share with you, with a distinct world flair to it. Penny is from here in Australia, Gerald is from Brussels and in the past three years they have worked in Africa, Pakistan and currently Israel. With their wedding planned for Noosa in November this year, they will be having guests traveling from far and wide to come celebrate their special day.
With a love for letterpress printing and the unique one off printing results it produces, Penny & Gerald's brief to us was something which wasn't too traditional, injected a flair of travel, a sense of rusticness and a tiny hint of vintage styling.
We worked with many different concepts based upon this idea, however simplicity was the key with this invitation and our final design was a postage mark inspired monogram coupled with loose typewriter styled typography. Inspired by old passports and stamps from around the world we also introduced small elements such as dotted line work and typographic characters to further enhance this style.
Their letterpress suite included a main intro card printed in a vintage brown ink on ivory cotton paper, it was also complimented with two further cards - the first with wedding invitation details and the second with further information as to the weekend events. With both of these cards their postage style monogram was blind impressed for a tactile and old world feel.
All three letterpress cards were then bound with red bakers twine and completed with a luggage style tag, and housed inside our cotton envelopes with a vintage world map lining.
Such a sweet and unique stationery suite - we wish Penny and Gerald an amazing and perfect day in November!
