Our Belvedere invitation is traditionally rather formal — printed with a graphite ink and a blind impression for a bold but stark feel. But Maura and Matthew wanted something a little more playful and a touch more Downton Abbey. So we swapped out the Mrs Eaves text and Burgues Script for the more lighthearted combo of Carlton and Parfumerie, punched up the color with two shades of lavender, and opted for a prim and proper flourish motif.
Here's a lovely wedding set for Parklife's favorite brother and his favorite new wife. For the save the date we used two custom inks on thick 600g ecru paper.
For the invitations, we carried through the same inks, paper, along with a few variations on the Gotham typeface.
On the back of the invitation we added a hand-duplexed backing that's letterpress printed with a tonal ink and a fine halftone screen. The image is adapted from an early nineteenth century drawing of Portland.
