We've been all hands on deck for a big letterpress printed wedding invitation suite that goes in the mail tomorrow. We love the way these "garden gate" die-cut invitations look grouped together with their rounded and sharp corners.

The shop has amazing morning light that streams in our front windows... it makes paper look quite dreamy.

Hand addressing over 400 envelopes in a week makes for some tired fingers but it feels quite rewarding to see them all come together and ready for the post.

Our favorite detail of this suite is the pop of pink in these custom letterpress printed envelope liners. After trying to find the perfect decorative paper we gave up and hand printed and die-cut our own design in-house.
