Last week was a busy, but great week. Despite having a mid-week birthday celebration, I printed four wedding invitation suites, two of which were letterpress. These invitations are off to the happy couple in Canada. They are getting married at a ski resort this autumn and wanted something casual and fun for their invitation. They love vintage travel posters {me too!} especially this one designed by Gruppe Gut for the Cortina Ski Resort in Italy. I created a new custom illustration to better reflect the silhouettes of the couple, made their gloves into hands, and gave them shoes instead of ski boots {since the wedding is in Autumn and there will be no snow}. I loved the bride’s idea behind having a chairlift on her invitation. She believes it represents her and her fiance as they embark on a new journey in life together. Very sweet. These invitations were letterpress printed in two colors on coasters. The front side featured the illustration in navy ink with a bold orange border which also features their names and wedding date. On the backside is the text inviting people to the wedding. They chose not to have an RSVP and asked people to email them instead. Each coaster will be tucked inside a square envelope with their return address printed on the back flap.

This invitation gets me excited for snowboarding…sort of. I love Autumn! Once my birthday has come and gone I am always okay for the weather to start getting a bit cooler and for the leaves to start changing! Enjoy your week!

What a cute invitation! I love the thickness of the coaster with the letterpress, the illustration, and the casual front and back action.

Love these! My FI and I are doing save the date coasters, and we argued over whether to just send one coaster or to send two to each person/couple we’re inviting. What did this bride do?

That’s a fantastic idea. I live in Chamonix in the French Alps - a ski resort - and am getting married in April and something like that is perfect.
