susie & matt :: wedding stationery
Do you remember the gorgeous save the date cards we did for Susie and Matt? We completed these late last year and featured them here on our blog. They are planning for an amazing wedding here in Brisbane Australia this Spring. If only we could make that amazing sing and dance and have more impact then simply an italic line of text, as their day sounds so beautifully perfect, slightly extravagant, and very much a reflection of this beautiful couple.
Earlier this year we continued to work with Susie and Matt to further expand upon their save the date design into stunning printed letterpress wedding stationery. With a black and white theme, we letterpress printed two hits of black into onto their invitation. The background pinstripe pattern was printed in our first hand feed, followed by the typography. This ensured that we were able to get solid areas of black ink without jeopardising the beautiful letterpress impression achieved. Finished off with scalloped corners, a sweet reply card and lined envelopes this really was a stunning invitation set.
Sharing this journey with Susie and Matt really was such a special and lovely time. It was one of those moments when their stationery was all printed and delivered that we get a little sad that the journey is over and our time with this beautiful couple has come to an end. Susie sent us a gorgeous email, so we know that they felt the same way too.
We wish them all the best and we have our fingers crossed that they will let us share with you some photos of their amazing day!
