Fancy-pants letterpress wedding invitations

Carrie and I got a call from Ginger at Serendipity-Beyond Design 2 weeks ago. She was desperate for someone to letterpress print these tres-elegant invitations she had designed. So we obliged, we ordered the most expensive 50 sheets of paper known to man and proceeded to print.

That Lettra paper by Crane is simply amazing. I ordered the 220lb, which surprised me by being almost as thick as matboard. It's sturdy. When it was on the press, it took them most amazing level of impression. Carrie and I were just blown away, and the client is super happy as well.

As we were printing these, a couple of Carrie's friends came out to the barn to talk about printing their invites in exchange for some web design help. This is a great deal for all parties involved, and we'll be working on a new 1canoe2 website very soon! (The current one just forwards to our etsy shop).

These are beyond beautiful.

I love the dingbats for beef or fish. I have to say that I'd keep the card for my collection of letterpress examples + phone in my food order.

Those are indeed very beautiful! Can I trade my kids in for lessons on the letterpress?
