Every day Crane & Co. comes across the work of talented designers doing amazingly creative things on paper. It makes us want to have a wedding every year just to send out these postal-sized works of art. Or we could just throw fabulous invitation-only party after fabulous invitation-only party.
Instead, we simply remain insanely jealous of the recipients of these beautifully designed invitations. Below are some of our recent favorites, all printed on Crane & Co. paper, in no particular order:
Designed by Mama’s Sauce, the bride- and groom-to-be wanted a mix of playful & classic, with one very important detail — the shoes! The result was a tri-fold wrap using 110# Pearl White Crane & Co. Lettra. We think the wax seal is a most fantastic touch.
Yellow must be the color du jour, and we’re not complaining one bit. Invitations to celebrate earning a Masters in Forensic Science, so clever! From the desinger, Moxie Press: “Here is a lovely two color letterpress graduation party invitation printed on 100% cotton Crane’s Lettra paper in a bright and summery sunflower yellow and dusty gray. The theme for this graduation invitation was science. I was inspired by the fun shapes and patterns you find in science like the ellipses of an atom or spiral of a double helix.”
For anyone who thinks simplicity doesn’t capture personality, we present this delightful design by J Fletcher Design. The main invitation (below) was letterpressed cherry veneer duplexed with Crane Lettra off-white. In the words of the groom/designer: “So rad.” We tend to agree.
