Simple Elegant Floral Letterpress Wedding Invitation

InspirationJenn JurfComment

Ooohh am I excited for this one! Not only was this design a blast to design and print but this is also my 100th design that I’m launching for Just Jurf!

Blind impression is the exact same process as letterpress however, there is no ink pressed into the sheet so you’re left with a simply stunning impression that doesn’t draw too much attention.

For the Simple Elegant Floral Letterpress Wedding Invitation, I chose to do blind impression for the flowers in the corner and a simple warm grey for the elegant type.

The RSVP and Details cards carry over the same simple typography with playful touches of script throughout.

The envelope liner has a seamless pattern of the florals that are impressed on the invitation in a similar warm grey as the main text, though slightly lighter to provide contrast.

Top off the suite with matching envelope printing for your invitation and RSVP envelopes.

The simplicity of this suite really lends itself to several accessories to tie your suite together. My personal favorite is the vellum belly bands!

Gold and Silver on Your Wedding Invitations at Three Different Prices

Tips & TricksJenn Jurf

Gold and silver are wonderful colors to accent any wedding! It’s a nice touch to incorporate these colors into your invitation suite to tie everything together.

This post will break down the 3 different ways to add gold and/or silver to your invitation suite at 3 different price points - Digital Printing ($), Letterpress ($$), and Foil Stamping ($$$).


Digital Printing ($)

The beauty of digital printing is that you can print almost any color, including watercolor drawings, at the push of a button. Digital printing is the most cost effective print method for this reason. This method makes it easy to change colors of the text to gold or silver and print without any change in the pricing.

Please note: silver is a very light color and therefore, we only recommend silver ink as an accent color for borders, lines, etc. rather than your main text (i.e. your names or other important information).

Letterpress ($$)

Unlike digital printing, letterpress is a very hands on and handmade process. Once your designs are completed during our digital PDF proofing process, your information is converted into a plastic or steel backed plate that will be used on our hand-fed presses. The press can only carry 1 ink at a time, meaning that each color will require its own plate, setup time and hand-fed time on to the press. Because of this, your letterpress pricing will fluctuate based on the number of colors in your design.

We use a metallic gold or silver ink when pressing these colors. The letterpress impression leaves a slight shadow and impression that you can feel, therefore, you’re welcome to include your main information in gold or silver without the risk of losing legibility.

Foil Stamping ($$$)

Ahh the shine we all know and love! Foil stamping is extremely popular as it not only creates an impression like letterpress but it creates a shine on your invitations as well.

Foil stamping is a similar process to letterpress, however, we use real foil that is heat transferred on to each card we press. Due to the high heat, we must use copper plates rather than a plastic or steel material used in letterpress and therefore, the price of foil is at the highest price point.

The modern geometric border is done in a gold metallic letterpress for a subtle contrast to this design.

Barbara & Cameron's Tappan Hill Mansion Wedding in Tarrytown, New York

InspirationJenn JurfComment

Simple. Neutral. Greenery. What more could a girl ask for?

This style has been a particular favorite of mine this year! I love the romantic, greenery oasis that was created for Barbara and Cameron’s wedding. The neutral tones mixed with a simple, almost minimalist, reception set up is just truly stunning.

I loved working with Barbara to create a cohesive look throughout their wedding stationery. I was fortunate enough to work with her on their save the dates, wedding invitations, bridal shower invitations and day-of stationery. They chose the Modern Greenery design and customized the suite with a new font for their names and layout that were more suitable for their wedding style. I love that!

Browsing through their wedding album makes me so happy to see it all come together!

I am so fortunate to work with some of the best clients! Daniele and Derek took the Elegant Blush Floral Suite to the next level by incorporating a playful script and gold foil throughout their wedding invitation suite.

They maintained a cohesive look with matching day-of stationery. We did menus, seating assignment cards, bar signs and a few other signs around the reception hall. I just love how the details tied together!

How to Properly Write the Date and Time on Wedding Invitations

Tips & TricksJenn JurfComment

Wedding invitation etiquette can be a little tricky sometimes and that’s why we’re here to help! Today, we’re sharing some guidelines to help your properly write out the date and time on your wedding invitations.

  1. Only the date of the week and month are capitalized, unless the design has a unique format (i.e. all capitalized or all lowercase text).

  2. The year is all lowercase. Wedding invitations traditionally do not include “and.” For example, “two thousand eighteen” is preferred over “two thousand and eighteen,” though both are grammatically correct.

  3. The line regarding time is all lowercase. If your ceremony is being held at 4:30, use the phrase “half-past” rather than “four-thirty.”

  4. The time of the day varies based on your ceremony time:
    … in the morning - up until 11:50am
    … in the afternoon - from 12:00pm - 4:59pm
    … in the evening - anything after 5:00pm
     

I hope this information is helpful when creating the wording for your wedding invitations. Feel free to also check out our wedding invitation etiquette guide for more suggestions. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me or leave a comment below.
