Lace Edged Letterpress Invite Suite

I know I know.... I haven't my blog in a while - a long while. I am sorry about that.  I have been busy busy printing on my Chandler & Price printing press!  I literally sold thousands of Christmas cards this season, and it was so fun! I also printed up lots of personalized note cards and tried my hand at envelope liners - picures of all of that to come. 

Today my blog post is about a very sweet wedding invitation suite I just shipped out my door.  It is printed on Crane Lettra in Pearl White.  The invite has a blind emboss (this means I let the printing press, press into the paper the design but use no ink) of a beautiful lace along the bottom.  We combined my hand calligraphy and a serif block print for the text in classic black.  The envelope also has the lace blind emboss on it to tie everything together.
