For my first post of substance, I wanted to share the d.i.y. “letterpress” save the date cards that my husband and I made for our wedding. I absolutely LOVE the luxurious look of letterpress. A simple, modern design allows the beauty of the thick, slightly textured paper and elegant impression to read prominently. One problem, it is very expensive. For some of you out there, true letterpress may be in your wedding budget…to you I say, go for it! Those of you who love letterpress, but can’t quite afford the real thing…you may want to give this option a try. Here are a couple images of our finished product:
In my next post I will give step-by-step instructions on how we made the cards and a list of tricks and tools. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
