Amalfi Coast Wedding Invitation

Debra & Jim

For a destination wedding on the Amalfi Coast, in Italy, we were tasked with creating an invitation suite with an illustration of the view from the couple’s wedding venue, the Hotel Santa Caterina. We created a one of a kind watercolor painting which wrapped around the letterpress invitation suite which was then sealed with a blue wax seal. The result was elegant, timeless and classic while also being memorable and unique.

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 created a range of designs all inspired by the wedding destination, the Santa Caterina Hotel on the Amalfi Coast. At first, we created a rough pencil sketch of two potential illustration styles before rendering a final painting in watercolors.

Alternate Designs

After settling on an illustration style, we explored a few different motifs and patterns for the wrap exterior. Some were inspired by Amalfi coast tiles while others were a nod to architectural details and ironwork found on façades

Illustration

Once our sketch was approved, we painted the final piece with watercolor paints in vivid hues of blue, green and terra cotta accents.

Details, details, details….

Every element and detail in the suite is carefully considered. On the reply card, we developed Italian tile symbols that represented each of the weekend events.

DESIGN EXTENSION

Once the look and feel are defined, we embark on the process of extending the design to all the pieces in the invitation suite. For Debra & Jim, this involved incorporating the Italian tile motif throughout the suite.
