These oversized square invitations feature our Tungsten letterpress ink along with a digitally printed "tigers & lemons" wedding seal provided by the couple.
As they put it, “Tiger” is the bride’s term of endearment for the groom as he is the fourth Shoemaker to hold “Tigert” as his middle name. “Lemons” is the groom’s term of endearment for the bride as she is “the lemon to his lime.”
The invitation is printed on our thick 600g Pearl White paper with bright gold edge paint, and it's paired with a metallic gold liner. The typeface combo is great: All caps Bodoni with sans serif Neutra Book.
We also printed mini directions booklets using the same ink combo, but on our lighter-weight 300g stock.
Although we're in Portland now, Parklife Press spent most of its first decade in Chapel Hill, less than a mile from UNC. On the far side of campus, beyond the sea of pastel polo shirts and khaki shorts, was PlayMakers Repertory Company. This year PlayMakers is celebrating its 40th year, and unlike the previously mentioned campus fashion choices, I hope it never goes out of style.

We carried parts of the artwork through to reply cards, menus, programs, and even the envelopes.
