Several months ago now, I had an invitation giveaway to launch my wedding invitation business. I’ve been doing calligraphy for some time now and wanted a new challenge. In return for my giveaway, Alex worked hard to help me with branding Whoa Nellie Press. Being a graphic designer herself, Alex has given me plenty of tips, including help with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. We designed her letterpress invitations suite together, with help from her friend, and illustrator Brooke, and created some pretty darn smashing invitations! Although we are still working on the response card (as her taste test date is in November) and details card, I couldn’t help but share what’s been printed so far. What do you think?
While I’m glowing with excitement and in design mode, I’d also love to hear any inspiration ideas for future invitations. Please share your ideas! In addition, take a look at our shop, with several wedding invitation suites newly added ranging from bold and colorful, to vintage, to rustic. I’m so excited to hear your feedback!
This is what’s been printed so far – invitation and response envelope. The response card and “The Particulars” card is yet to come. Alex decided to go with the vibrant purple outer envelopes and a mix of fun calligraphy in my Skinny Lucy font.
I am totally beaming with excitement as I proudly show off Alex’s wedding invitations. We’ve gone back and forth on formatting and I’m just thrilled with the end result. This invitations suite is for sale on my etsy shop.
