I have a handful of custom wedding invitation designs I am working on for some very sweet engaged couples. This one is for a couple getting married in California. I designed their save the dates, now I am working on their invitations. The end result will not look like either of the images here, but I wanted to show you just so that you can see how my sketch process works. Happy Friday!
Here is a sneak peak at a new classic and modern calligraphy wedding invitation that I will be letterpress printing soon. This is for a local customer getting married in Greenville, South Carolina. I am excited to show you the end result later! Contact me if you have an interest in a design like this for your wedding: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a formal education in art and design, but I have never been able to take a calligraphy class. I absolutely love this art form and I hope someday soon I will have the opportunity to learn it. Until then, I will continue to doodle in my sketchbook (it’s really fun!). So here is a peak at some of my hand lettered sayings. I will be bringing these into the computer to play with them more.
In honor of The New Year, I thought I would put together an inspiration board using a little bling! Grey and gold are elegant and modern colors when paired together, and may be perfect for your wedding or event. Enjoy!

Here is a little bit of fresh inspiration for your modern vintage wedding.
A few weeks ago I printed this lovely vintage-inspired letterpress invitation. The local Greenville, SC customer wanted the invitation to look aged, with rustic touches. The couple is getting married in a mansion on the hills, with a vineyard setting. Check out more details on ordering this design in the Sofia Invitations Etsy Shop. The cream colored invitation was the final result, but I also made some samples using Crane 100% cotton white papers.
This modern and classy invitation is perfect for a fashion-forward wedding. Seen here in purple, this invitation can be printed in any color to match your wedding colors. For more information, check out the Sofia Invitations Etsy page.
