Letterpress Chipboard Postcards
These postcards we're designed last year for a November wedding. What I love most about these postcards, is holding them in my hand. Sounds silly, I know, but that's what I REALLY what I love about them. They are so sturdy and have a great quality to them.
The couple was inspired by wine labels for the postcards. We wanted the nod to wine to be subtle; hence "Reserve" the date instead of "Save." They loved the idea of using a kraft colored paper with navy ink. I wanted the quality of the kraft paper to have some thickness to it so it made it through the mailing process with no damages. We went for a chipboard just making it through the postal regulations for postcards. YES!
Another theme we played with is they both have a last name starting with "L." We used a transparent white ink and letterpressed an elegant script "L" in the background. We also incorporated this into the wedding invites which I will share next week with some sneak peaks at bits of their gorgeous wedding at the Park Savoy in New Jersey.
Oh! And a custom stamp is such a great detail. We took an image of the wedding location and added the date to add just a tiny bit of color. Add the green labels, red postal mark and perfection!
