Wedding Stationery: Deckle Edges and Sewing

We designed this invitation set for Epitome Papers, located in The Galleria, Edina, Minnesota.

This invitation design is clean and understated, the monogram for the couple takes center stage. Printed on Crane Lettra 220# pearl white cover (Invite Panel) and 110# cover (all other pieces) in rust orange and brown inks.

Notice the invitation panel has one deckle edge at the top. We consider this a torn edge, not a true deckle edge. Since the 220# cover is a duplexed cover (glue is involved), the torn edge takes on a different appearance.

The insert card set is hand-sewn together in an orange thread that is a perfect match to the ink color used on the invitation set. This is a nice, yet subtle, way to add color to the reply cards that are printed in only brown ink. The reply card is able to perforate off from the set and mailed as a postcard.

Eco Scottish Wedding

This invitation set was designed by Flush Designs in Pasadena, California.

Paper: This is a completely eco-friendly invitation set as it is printed on 100% reclaimed cotton paper (tree-free), our premium, 220# house stock. The envelopes are brown bag envelopes made from 100% recycled content.

Details: We printed the invite panel in lavender and brown inks on the front and brown ink on the back. Since we were using the 220# cover, we could give a nice impression on both sides. The custom artwork created by Courtney at Flush Designs looked beautiful letterpress-printed.

We also sewed borders around all four sides of this invitation in a pretty lavender thread. Unfortunately, none of our samples remain to share with you! There is proof, checkout Courtney's website at Flush Designs and view #19 under her invitation photos.
