Absolutely loved working on these glamorous gold-foil wedding suites for Blakely & Matthew. They are getting married next month at the Arctic Club in Seattle, so we worked to have the invitations be a grand preview to the beautifully ornate venue — I think we succeeded.
Each piece was printed offset in black onto Ecru Crane Letra and then gold foiled with a “dusted gold”. We used patterns and borders to cue an art-deco style, but also kept it modern with a clean serif typeface and a calligraphic typeface. The suite included a main invitation with gold shimmer lined black envelopes — complete with calligraphy from Carolyn Kach — a reply card & gold-stamped reply envelopes, and an accommodations card all wrapped together with a delicate gold thread. Overall, I’m overjoyed with how they turned out and have to say they’re some of my favorite invites to date.
These were also just on Oh So Beautiful Paper — thanks again Nole for the feature!
