501 Union Wedding Invitation

Amy & Joe

For a stylish wedding at 501 Union in Brooklyn, we created a one of a kind invitation suite inspired by the interior design of the venue and incorporated cultural elements such as chrysanthemum blooms as a nod to the couple’s Vietnamese heritage. The artwork was all hand-painted in deep, lush gouache paints.

Since we are a studio specializing in custom work, we put together custom pricing for each project. For your convenience, below is a brief summary of the starting prices for both our collection and custom suites:

• $2,000 is the starting price for pre-existing designs for a 4-piece suite in 1-letterpress color. Suites with additional embellishments such as foil stamping, laser cut sleeves, pocket folders, etc. start at a higher price point of $3,000 and up.

• Custom invitations start at $2,750 for a 4-piece suite in 1-letterpress color.

• For budgets in the $1,000 range, many of our designs can be adapted to a economical price point using flat printing.

Note: A 4-piece suite includes Invitation, Reply Card, Outer Envelope and Reply Envelope. However a suite can be customized to your needs. Most pre-existing designs you see, whether it be from our custom page or collection page, can be made into a ready to order set

Design Exploratory

We started with sketching various layouts and typographical treatments for the invitation card. We were very inspired with the interior decor and architecture of the wedding venue, 501 Union in Brooklyn. The ceiling architecture had unique geometric features that had a midcentury feel to them which we incorporated into the top of the invitation layout.

Custom design process


We hand painted a unique decorative motif that was inspired by the venue’s ceiling design and pendant lighting. The illustration was rendered in vivid gouache paints.

Floral painting process


After determining the design direction, we also took a look at various alternate layouts for the back of the invitation. These seemingly small differences can make a big difference in the overall look and feel of the suite.

At the end of the creative process, after all edits and refinements are made, the full suite comes to life in the hands of our expert team of printers and craftsmen.
