Set Sail Wedding Invitations

September 14th, 2009 @ 10:30 am by Sarah @ Parrott Design Studio

Sometimes a week just slips right by, especially when I am trying to get projects out the door.  As a follow up to my recent letterpress post, here is the final product!  John, the groom, was a friend from college {go PC!}. He and Kelly were both on the sailing team and still love to sail so it was only natural their wedding would be inspired by the sea. They are getting married at the chapel on PC’s campus followed by a reception at the Conanicut Yacht Club.

John and Kelly had a few elements they wanted to include in the stationery suite including a sailboat, doves, a compass rose, and a knot.

For the invitation I created a custom illustration of a sailboat along with two doves flying by. I created a compass rose and used that on both the RSVP postcard and the two-sided direction card.

As the reception was in a different location {and about 45 minutes away} we decided to include a separate reception card. I think it is my favorite piece! I love that they wanted to add “flip flops optional!” which is so appropriate for a fun and casual wedding reception on the beach.

The pieces were held together by a paper band featuring a nautical knot. Each piece was letterpress printed in blue ink, with the exception of the invitation which was printed in both blue and turquoise, on smooth, 110lb recycled stock. We used turquoise envelopes and paper bands to add more color to the suite instead of printing each piece in two colors {another cost-saving technique!}. I love how simple, clean, and beautiful these invitations came out. The letterpress printing really adds another dimension to them as well. I wish you could feel the nautical knot. So lovely!

I have been eying these beautiful, beautiful invitations since you posted them on the 14th! I went to your site to see pricing, but its only a graphic stating a new site is coming soon. So I have to know, what would the cost of 100 of these stunning invitations cost?
