Time for the rehearsal dinner invites!

For these, I used the #10 Paper Source notecards in Ecowhite and printed them on my printer. Then I used their terrarium rubber stamp for an added accent, since our rehearsal dinner had a slight succulent theme. The envelopes are #10 in Paper Bag for a rustic-y look. I’m really happy with how these turned out—they fit the theme of the invitation suite but were still different enough to stand out a bit.

Wedding Paper Goods | Save the Date

About two months overdue, the next part of the wedding paper goods series.

I probably should’ve posted these before the invites, but ah well. I used Paper Source papers and had a custom stamp made, which we stamped on the paper and then heat embossed. The photo is one of our engagement session photos (the first session, which my sister in law took, the same week we got engaged) were printed through Shutterfly which was quick and easy. Then I mounted them onto the back of the enclosure card with the Paper Source tape runners. Thanks to my bridesmaids for helping me assemble them all!

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!
