Angela and Justin approached us last July to start the process designing and letterpress printing gorgeous wedding invitation stationery for their April 2012 wedding. Currently based in the Carribean (so jealous!!) they were planning their wedding from afar for the gorgeous Gunners Barracks in Mossman, Sydney.
Their brief to us was to design and letterpress print save the dates, invitations, information cards, thank you cards and envelopes to suit. With simple styling as not to distract from the historical elegance and stunning views from Gunners Barracks, they were attracted to designs with lovely combinations of typefaces and a strong use of white space which allows for an optimum printed impression upon the press.
We commissioned gorgeous hand lettering for their names and thank you text and combined this with a very sweet, yet classically styled monogram. Coupled with combinations of upper case serif body copy and lower case italics script, we completed the whole package off with a simple three dot motif to balance the central alignment of the design. All printed on our ivory 100% cotton paper in a classic black ink.
Despite being many thousands of kilometres away we adored working with Angie & Justin - A gorgeous couple, who sent us lovely emails and who were an absolute pleasure to work with! We love that in today's age of technology working from afar is just as possible as working from around the corner. What a joy it is to combine centuries old craftsmanship with modern fancy technology!
We wish Angela & Justin the most magical day in April!!
