Spark Destination Wedding Invite - Grand Cayman

Many thanks to our retailer, Pulp & Ink in Chicago, for sending this project our way! This is our passport design that can easily be adapted for any destination location. The wedding suite features a 5.25" square standing save the date, 3 color letterpress invitation folded pocket, with 2 color letterpress invitation panel, insert cards and reply envelope. We love the transparent panel that features the grand cayman islands. Papers used for this project are ecru reclaimed cotton cover, transparent white paper and stardream fairway.

Rainone/Roofener Couture Stationery Suite

One of our first Spark Couture clients, Danielle Rainone and Ted Roofener, decided to work with us to create their wedding stationery due to the overwhelming amount of stationery needs they had in mind for their wedding weekend. While we enjoy our relationships with our retailers, there are a select number of clients we take on each year through Spark Couture. These clients typically need original artwork or more than a save-the-date and wedding invitation set. We have the ability to do the design, printing and finishing work all at our facility allowing the couple and Spark the greatest amount of control over the quality and look of the final product. It was such a pleasure to work with this couple as they were so appreciative of our efforts.

Each set includes a printed outer envelope with a printed liner, an blank inner envelope also with a different printed liner, and a main invitation panel printed on 4-ply Rising Museum Board in White. Three additional panel cards are printed on Rising Museum Board in White, only using 2-ply so they are set apart from the main invitation. The three panel cards are sized differently so they are different from each other. The reception card is the smallest, the welcome celebration card is next and then the reply card is on the bottom since it had the most information. The panel cards and reply envelope are enclosed in a Gilbert Esse Espresso 100# cover wrap, with a white Arturo printed band holding the wraps shut.

More pictures of their set can be found on our Flickr page.

Cherry Blossom Wedding Suite

The above wedding invitation set was printed late 2007 for a couple in New York City. The cherry blossom artwork was created especially for their invitation set and thank you cards. The couple selected our favorite Crane Lettra 110# cover paper in fluorescent white. Crane Lettra is a 100% reclaimed cotton paper, so no trees have fallen to make this beautiful paper. The set is a two color letterpress piece in fuchsia and dark brown with small rounded corners. Pay special attention to the arrangement and detail of the blossoms, as well as the tight registration achieved.

We started the process with a phone call with the bride to discuss her design style, colors, typeface likes and dislikes and briefly discussed the invitation wording. After the first encounter, our designer provided the couple with a PDF proof of the invitation panel which included the cherry blossom artwork. This artwork went through a couple renditions before it reached its final format. The rest of the invitation suite was created and approved all in a matter of a few weeks. Rest assured, our bride enjoyed the experience as did we!

The cherry blossom artwork is not featured in our custom album, however we are happy to reproduce this artwork upon request. Please contact for more details or simply visit one of our retail stores and mention this entry.
