Pretty wedding invites

September 15, 2011

LOVE these invites we spotted on Sideshow Press’s blog. Here is a description from Jay, the groom and designer:

As much as it might have been fun to use a bunch of blackletter typefaces and neon inks, I figured it’d be best to reign it in and create something that felt like a merger of both our personalities. The end result takes that idea literally by sandwiching simple elements & textures which represent the two of us as individuals to create a finished package that’s distinctly “us.” That’s my design mumbo-jumbo explanation, anyway. Really, I just wanted to put her in a cameo and myself in a plaid shirt, and somehow print it on actual wood. The invitation was letterpressed cherry wood veneer which we then duplexed to crane lettra pearl white cover stock.

Aren’t they beautiful and awesome and unique? Even though we don’t know them, it’s pretty obvious that groom-y designed these with his and his lovely bride-to-be’s tastes in mind.
