Designer Wedding Invitations

5 Golden Rings! Most girls will settle for just one this Holiday Season.

There’s something swoon-worthy about Christmas. Mistletoe… magic… and memories. A perfect combination for romantics to make their move and get engaged.

So, if you think an engagement is on the cards this holiday season. Be aware that the planning can get nuts but Watermarx Graphics has you covered for all your letterpress, foil stamped and embossed stationery needs.

SAVE THE DATE

This goes out to guests when you have decided your date, as an early reminder (before you need to have all your finer details locked in) for them to reserve your wedding day date in their diaries. Organised brides like to keep the theming consistent all the way through from the ‘save the date’ to the ‘thank you’ card. But if you already have too much on your plate to make major colour/pattern/theme decisions at this point, it’s better to get these out regardless to be sure your friends and family will actually turn up on the day. Simply go with personality for this one. An eye-catching piece helps because it will go on the fridge and the request to ‘save the date’ will be actioned because you will stay top of mind. Try a pop colour (you can’t ignore a neon in letterpress) with a rich typographic treatment, or a luxuriously elegant embossed piece that will become a memento they will never throw away.

WEDDING INVITATION

This is the letterpress printed, foil stamped and or embossed piece that will set the tone for the entire bridal affair. Most brides opt for their wedding invitation to remain in keeping with the overall colour theme and style of the event. It is becoming commonplace for guests to receive a ‘wedding invitation pack’ rather than just an invite to a wedding. This will include printed pieces such as RSVP cards, custom envelopes, maps to the church and reception locations. There’s no denying the excitement and delight this kind of pack builds with your guests, as it becomes an experience in itself to receive this little teaser of things to come. However, there are no rules and the most important thing is that your wedding invitations feel like you and not some generic piece ordered online, the likes of which everyone has seen over and over again. Even if you’re not one to seek the limelight, this is the perfect platform for expressing the unique bond you and your husband-to-be share.

MAP, SERVICE BOOKLET & MENU

On the day, printed items like a map, seating cards, service booklet and menu are little wayfinders for your guests. Whether they are witty designs that bring you and your finance’s sense of humour to your guests, or classically created, bespoke print-work that conveys the tone of your special day, they help your guests stay with the programme… literally! Ensuring your guests follow the events easily by providing these instructional pieces, means they can relax and enjoy the events stress-free. Everyone loves a ‘Considerate Bride’, so keep your guests’ comfort in mind and you will find they have such a wonderful time at your wedding, that they treasure these printed keepsakes forever.

Zed & Bee Shake Up The Letterpress Landscape with Divine Invitations

The very clever and talented sister team, Zoe Ritch and Billie Shennen, are the duo behind Zed & Bee. These unstoppable women have recently launched a new collection of designer letterpressed invitations which we helped them bring to life.

They went into the designer invitation business when Zoe couldn’t find beautiful quality bespoke invitations for her own wedding a few years back.  She and Billie (both are graphic designers) decided to join forces to bring to meet this market gap, and began crafting invites with individuality, colour and fabulous flair.

Both are very well versed with deigning for bespoke printing techniques. They utilise plush stocks and cleverly design for a bold and contemporary take on letterpress. The designs are refreshing, tactile and expressive – with something to suit every kind of event.The new invitation collection is perfect for budget-conscious brides, events planners or anyone with an occasion to host but who would rather spend the dollars on the food, wine and entertainment than the invitations themselves. Their letterpress engagement, wedding, bat mitzvah, christening, anniversary, corporate function and birthday invitations are a breath of fresh air in the Australian design scene.

Simply select the style you like, select your colours and add your custom details (your names and dates, any special wording etc.) and have a beautiful custom stationery. Visit their website to discover their fabulous ‘Celebrations on Paper’!
