I think that there is nothing more important than having totally unique wedding stationery to match your perfect day.
You may be asking, but can you get anything designed with us? And letterpress printed also? Why of course!! We have no bounds, limitations or restrictions here at Retro Press... If you want your invitations to be printed on fabric, wood, heavy weight card or even as light weight as bible paper, all is possible!
If you want the actual church that you are getting wed in to be on the front of your invitations, then you will have... Have a look at the images below. The lovely thing about getting a bespoke letterpress plate made for you is that you get to keep it after we've used it to print your stationery. Many people have framed them, but you can do as you please with them. As you can, this particular couple had a print of the church made after the invitations with the date of their wedding underneath. It's something that they'll keep and remember for ever.
If it's a photograph that you want printing and incorporated within the design then this is a great and fun option. With the example you'll see below, the photograph was digitally printed and the type was letterpress printed. They also had those coasters done to plant around on the tables for the guests to use and take away that night.
Some people may want specific motifs, family crests or logos incorporated into the design, which is yet another way of making your wedding invitations that bit different and bespoke. As you can see from the below coaster, the couple really wanted the Henley Brewery logo on their Save the Dates, so we had a letterpress plate especially made and used our own type and bells to compliment this.
And lastly I want to show you a proof design which we didn't take to print in the end as it wasn't quite right- but this is why I do proofs and only print the lot until the invitations are spot on and I'm definitely willing to do some trial and error before getting there- it's part of the fun!! But for this particular mock up, the couple thought that they wanted the New York skyline on their Save the Dates. Thus, I designed and printed the text letterpress and traced and then drew the NY skyline digitally. I took a picture of the printed coaster and photoshoped the image in to give the clients a good idea of what they'd look like when printed. I do think they look really cool, but there was a worry that the guests might of thought that the wedding was in New York itself- so we scrapped that idea and went back to the drawing board!! Watch the space with those....!
So if you're after that specific something to go onto your wedding invitations, you've been desperately trawling the web to find it, then look no further! Don't hesitate to get in touch with me and I'll see what I can do for you, no problems.
