We printed some lovely invitations for spring weddings that had to be postponed. Here's a detail from one of my favorites. These weekend timeline cards are always fun to design and fun for guests to receive. Who doesn't want to get a card that features drinks, flowers and pancakes?!

Thinking of you... We've added a new greeting card to our collection to help you connect with distant friends. It is such a nice surprise to open the mailbox and see an envelope with a friend's handwriting and know they were thinking of you! •

Family stationery is one of my favorite things to print. When you have a stack of custom note cards on your desk, you’re more apt to pen a quick note thanking friends for a gift, a dinner party, a weekend visit or, in times like these, just to say hello.

This time of year we are usually sharing photos of invitations printed for large wedding celebrations. This spring we're working on a lot of "change of plans" cards instead. Some of these notify guests of postponed dates and some announce that a small wedding has taken place, like this one from this past weekend. Regardless of the size of the event, a wedding is always worth celebrating, even if from afar.

A note card and a custom gift tag for a couple with an upcoming wedding. The people we work with put so much thought into all of their planning for these special events. Little details like these San Francisco map favor tags show this care. I love this about invitation designing! I feel bad for the couples who have had to put their events on hold right now. When the celebrations do start happening again, they're going to be exceptionally joyous!

Some candy colored custom cards we've printed this spring. I love these tiny, pretty notes. I'm so glad people still connect with friends by sending hand written letters. Each time we pack up a set of cards, I think about how surprised and happy someone will be to get one of the cards in their mailbox.
We're still printing note card sets so if you'd like to send some letters of your own, reach out to us!

Getting ready to do some Sunday printing at home. This feels like a return to the early Sesame Letterpress days-printing on weekends and counting cards and packing orders at home. I’m glad to have a back-up press here but miss being in the studio and working with the awesome women there!

While the invitation card is the main focus of an invitation suite, the accompanying cards also play important roles. Couples use these pieces to communicate the details they know are important to their guests. For many people, understanding the formality of the event and knowing what to wear is one of these concerns. Here’s a card that really spells that out. @ New York, New York

Detail of a monstera plant on an invitation for an upcoming California wedding. The round leaves print so well in the pale ink. Maybe we’ll swap out the fern design on our site and show this one instead...

Sharing some of our favorite rose invitations over the next couple days... Printing these images with a pale tinted ink gives the cotton paper an elegant texture, like fabric. Letterpress is such a pretty style of printing that it's nice to allow the materials and textures stand out.

Seaside weddings! I love seeing these photos from a fall Cape Cod wedding. We spend so much time thinking about a couple's wedding day as we design their stationery and it's wonderful to actually see pictures from the big day. Also, check out those shoes in the most beautiful shade of blue!

Most of our wedding invitation projects begin by working from a design in our collection. Then we customize these by selecting images and colors that convey each couple's style. This suite featured neon orange painted edges and matching bright ink in small printed details - giving the set a very modern feel.

A small RSVP tag is a sweet option for invitations requesting online responses. It’s nice to keep these instructions off the invitation card so having a tag with a date and the website is fun and helpful option.

We print all of our stationery on antique presses in our Brooklyn Studio. Each card passes through our hands multiple times so we can be sure it is perfect before we send it out. We've documented this process in a post on our blog this week. Check out the link in our profile to follow a card through our printing process.

Invitation for a Brooklyn wedding at The River Café (right around the corner from our studio!). We used a romantic, floral motif for the invitation card and paired this with an envelope featuring a map of the East River. Together, they tell the story of this special venue.
