This was a thorough invitation with lots of bells and whistles.
Set up as a series of cards, the pieces were bound together with a rough hemp twine which added a nice contrast to the softness of the piece. The groom who had designed the project also designed crests for the merging families which was used throughout the piece. While at our studio the groom saw our Nick Hornby / Bruce Springsteen book which was just being finished and he loved the white on white mulberry sheet and wanted to add that. The RSVP was the bottom sheet and was perforated for removal and scored for the return envelope. A belly band with the crests wrapped the pieces.
Matching envelopes in the size were not available, so we made them by hand, adding the inside liner with a pattern of simplified crests.
The dark grey and green inks were a nice, and quit different, color combination from other invitations we've produced.
