My inviations arrived yesterday and I just had to show them off! I designed them myself and had them printed letterpress by Mercurio Brothers. They are the most affordable letterpress I found and are very fast and easy to work with as long as you have your own files finalized and ready to go. If you have any questions about them, please PM me.
My invites consist of the actual invitation and then a reply postcard with our logo on the front. We wanted to use as little paper as possible to be more green. I didn’t show the back of the postcard because it has our address. The back is in the green using the script font. As much as I love my invites, there are a couple of things I would’ve changed (isn’t it always that way?). I would have not had the back of the postcard be all in the script as it is a little hard to read. I originally chose the script because I liked the idea of the back looking hand-written. Also, I would have centered the logo better on the front of the postcard. Oh well.
The final invite will also include a moo card with our website and a e-pic of us tied to the other two pieces with a purple ribbon. I am also thinking about purple envelope liners in order to include our other color as the invites are only in olive green and chocolate brown.
Let me know what you think!

Your invitations are beautiful!!! I love the design on the top and the pinecone on the bottom. That invitation would definitely be saved if I got it in the mail 🙂

Thanks girls! The pinecone is our “theme” really. Mini pinecones will be in the bouts and my dad and I are collecting pinecones to decorate the tables among votives and evergreen centerpieces. We are going for rustic elegance.

They turned out soooooo good! Letterpress is so lovely.
I think the purple liners are a great idea. It would not only bring your other color in more to the invites but also pull in the purple ribbon you are using.

I’m so jealous of you ladies who have your invites done! I’m still swimming in a sea of options 🙂
