Wedding Paper Goods | Invitation

Now that I’ve been married for four months (!!!), I figured it was about time I post about all the paper goods I created/designed for the wedding.

I hemmed and hawed for a while over whether or not to use my given name or my nickname for the invitations, and I finally decided to use my nickname (Gina) since that’s what the majority of the attendees know me as. For the design, I hand lettered the majority of the text, and typeset everything else in Futura for a nice contrasting combination.

Everything was screen printed at Sediment Press in Alexandria, VA on Paper Source papers. All the pieces were then hand-assembled by me, including the envelope liners. For the return address stamp, I had a custom stamp designed (via RubberStamps.net) that I also hand lettered, and then each enveloped was stamped and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, to mimic the appearance of screen printing.

I’m so, so happy with how the invitations turned out. They were most definitely a labor of love—I redid the lettering, I mocked up the papers, all multiple times.

The rest of the wedding paper goods to come!
